Chew On This

Jake’s Wayback Burgers (115 Cross Pointe Blvd.) opened just off of the Lloyd Expressway near the Drury Inn & Suites East. A success so far, owners Phil Dzienciol and Dave Johnson say they’ve heard nothing but compliments on their customer service, as well as on some of their most popular menu items such as the double patty Jake Cheeseburger and their hand-dipped milkshakes.

Firehouse Subs (1031 N. Green River Road) has opened on Evansville’s East Side. The restaurant strives for great personal service, says owner Dan Irmscher. Instead of giving out numbers to keep track of customers, Firehouse employees deliver each sub — such as the Hook & Ladder or the Firehouse Meatball — straight to the individual by learning their name.

Los Alfaro Restaurant and Dance Club (1704 S. Kentucky Ave.) has opened inside the Old Kentucky BBQ building. With dishes influenced from El Salvador, Peru, Argentina, Ecuador, Mexico, and the United States, the family-run business offers satisfying meals to families with differing taste preferences. Doubling as a dance club, the restaurant offers lessons in Salsa, Merengue, Bachata and Cumbia.


YWCA Tea Room by Mary and Martha’s (118 Vine St.) reopened with a revised name and under new management in April. Now boasting more vibrant and lively décor, the Tea Room’s menu also received an upgrade with daily hot lunch specials and soup, salad, and soda combos.
