9 Unassuming Restaurants To Add To Your Cleveland Bucket List
Picking a place to eat in Cleveland can be a challenge. With so many restaurants offering so many different types of foods, it can get frustrating trying to find the perfect dinnertime destination. If you are looking to try new places for an unforgettable bite to eat, keep your eyes peeled for these unassuming buildings that house spectacular menus:
1. Slyman's Restaurant, 3106 Saint Clair Avenue Northeast, Cleveland
Slyman's is a Cleveland favorite. Stop by for a sandwich that's larger than life (I mean, these sandwiches are
huge), and be sure to order the corned beef if you're looking to try the best in the Midwest. Visit with a big appetite, because you will be served impressive portions in a small-town milieu.
2. Graffiti: A Social Kitchen, 1261 West 76th Street, Cleveland
Enjoy a relaxing evening on the patio or hang out in the chic interior of this warm and inviting Cleveland restaurant. Don't let its Victorian exterior fool you; Graffiti offers some delightfully modern American fare. Be bold and try something new! Order epic entrees like Buccatini or a Graffiti Burger and see why locals love this kitchen.
3. Bakersfield, 2058 West 25th Street, Cleveland
They say to never judge a book by its cover, but in this instance, it certainly would not be a crime. Bakersfield's Tex-Mex cuisine and yummy cocktails are as colorful as its facade, and their tacos are truly tasty. They fit right into the upbeat atmosphere of Ohio City!
4. Hot Sauce Williams, 7815 Carnegie Avenue, Cleveland
If you have a craving for old-fashioned soul food, you must swing by this colorful Cleveland restaurant. With generous (but messy) portions and an eye-catching paint scheme, your experience at this restaurant will feel uniquely Cleveland.
5. Crop Bistro, 2537 Lorain Avenue, Cleveland
Just a stone's throw away from the West Side Market is a building that blends rather effortlessly into the cityscape. It appears to be a bank, but it is actually a spectacular restaurant that serves traditional American dishes with a twist. The interior is spectacular and classy, and the food will doubtlessly delight your taste buds.
6. The Bourbon Street Barrel Room, 2393 Professor Avenue, Cleveland
Cajun, anyone? There is no better place to enjoy it than in the awesome neighborhood of Tremont. While the exterior of the building may be unassuming, the interior ambiance is unbeatable and the food will blow you away.
7. Townhall, 1909 West 25th Street, Cleveland
Townhall has an undeniably Cleveland vibe, and it is made all the better by an impressive menu that caters to all dietary needs. If you have a hankering for brunch, dinner, or anything in between, you must pay this destination a visit. Their delectable American dishes are anything but traditional... in fact, one could even say they're a Cleveland original, thanks in part to local sourcing and also to surprisingly unique dishes.

In the mood for some classic diner-style delights? You've come to the right place! Here you can enjoy a welcoming environment offering mouthwatering meals that will please picky and adventurous eaters alike.
