We sent our intern, Grace, out to investigate our city’s top attractions. Over the next week, a four-day article series titled “A Guide to Nail City” will explore the local sights, tastes, and sounds of Nail City.
Day Two: Savory & Sweet Eats
The way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Fortunately, Nail City has several scrumptious, cuisine options for all the foodies out there. There are plenty options to dine in or carry out before you go to a Nailers game or before you binge watch Netflix on your couch. Nail City is home to both high-class dining options, as well as local dives that have quirky characteristics unlike anywhere else. In Nail City, you are sure to find food that is perfect for your pallet.
Top Pick: Avenue Eats
A neighborhood eatery located conveniently on Valley View Avenue features some of the best burgers in Wheeling. Avenue Eats is the perfect lunch time spot. The restaurant has a menu that includes special burgers, salads, and sandwiches. The restaurant is local to Wheeling and uses high-quality products to create their cuisine. The spot is always packed with people salivating over their delicious eats. My favorite order is the Grilled Chicken Club with kettle chips. Avenue Eats also features a kids’ menu and appetizers that make this quaint outlet the perfect family-friendly environment. The establishment serves alcoholic beverages for those of age, yearning to indulge. Once you’re done with your sustenance, Avenue Eats serves cupcakes for desserts that are made daily at Whisk Bakery. This spot is the perfect place to grab a delicious meal before you explore Nail City.
Second Pick: Later Gator
If you are looking for a quirky lunch spot, I would suggest Later Alligator, more commonly referred to as Later Gator, on Market Street in downtown Wheeling. Later Gator is renowned for its savory and sweet crepes. The local spot also features wraps, sandwiches, and salads. My favorite order is a sweet crepe, Strawberry Fields with a scoop of ice cream, which satisfies any sweet tooth. The restaurant also features appetizers and kids’ menus that make this a great lunch spot for families. Furthermore, Later Gator has its ABC license, which makes this place a great dining option in the evening for adults. If you are looking for a special experience, I would suggest Later Alligator. The restaurant is one of the most unique spots in Nail City, and its delectable goodies are sure to make you smile.
There are dining options that are family-friendly and others that are perfect for a night out. With so many options, it is often hard to pick one restaurant. I hope that this guide will urge you to go and investigate for yourself. Certainly, you will find a dining option that suits your needs and satisfies your taste buds in Nail City.
