Two Doors Down is a solid neighborhood spot for some burgers and fries with your kids (if you have kids), or with a group of friends. The beer selection is great, as are the burgers. They do corn dogs and grilled cheese, too, but if you’re here for one thing, it’s the excellently crispy french fries with hoppy garlic mayo. Our one caveat? Stay away from the gluten-free buns. They soak up grease like a sponge - you’re better off wrapping that thing in lettuce if you can’t have wheat.
