(3) La Familia
'The Family' is one of my favorite holes-in-the-wall in Lawrence. Love the salsa, never had anything less than a good experience there, and the only downfall is that 'Jim's Special' on the menu is just one item away from what I always order. I can't be the only one who would love to order something with their name in it every time they went to a restaurant. A recent Yelp review seems to agree with me:
Went back last night after many years of absence and still as good as ever. Service was friendly and quick. Food was as good as Tex-Mex gets in the area and the prices are reasonable to low.
Tad's pizza is somewhat middle of the road for me, but what's great about Tad's are the side orders. Chili cheese fries, buffalo fries, fried pickles... it's all deadly. But don't take my word for it - from the most recent Yelp review:
Still a great place to get pizza. The pizza is amazing and I can't even begin to say how much I love the garlic knots! On top of that, there are awesome choices past pizza that are super tasty. Super friendly staff!
