Amore's Grill & Spirits
Overview: Formerly Mr. K's, Amore's follows in K's footsteps with a casual bar-and-grill atmosphere. Plenty of spacious booths are available for families looking to have dinner. If you prefer sitting at the bar to watch the game, that's OK too. Amore's has happy hour every Monday-Friday from 2 to 6 p.m.
Drinks: Full bar. Happy hour specials: $1 off all draft beers, $3 glasses of wine, and $3 well drinks. Draft beers include Killian's, Bud Light, Shocktop and Kid Rock's Badass Beer.
Appetizers: House specialties are clearly marked with Amore's logo. Pizza bread (starting at $4.79) is similar to a French-bread pizza. Nachos, fried green beans and quesadillas are all there as well. Many other options are available. Chips and salsa are $.99 during happy hour.
Salads: The restaurant has eight salad options, including the specialty salad called Amore's Crunchy Creation ($8.99). Crunchy Creation has diced tomatoes, red onions, bacon, crispy noodles, walnuts, fried chicken strips, shredded jack and cheddar cheese. Greek, Caesar, Julienne and other salads can be ordered, too.
Burgers and Sandwiches: Patties are hand-formed. Feeling hungry? Try The Beast ($9.99). It has more than one pound of ground beef, three slices of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and onions. If you can eat the whole thing, you win a T-shirt. For those with more normal appetites, most burgers clock in at a reasonable 6 oz.
For those not into beef, Amore's smokes their pork for a pulled-pork sandwich ($7.49) made with their house-made BBQ sauce. Other wraps and sandwiches are available as well.
Entrees: Smoked St. Louis style ribs ($16.29 full slab), homemade lasagna ($10.79) and Southern Fried Cod ($8.99) are just a tiny sample of the entrees available.
Breakfast: Served all day. All of the classics are there with a number of different pancake variations.
Signature Dish: If you're into the whole Man V. Food thing, The Beast is for you.
