I'm looking for decent food for cheap and I'm not afraid to get down in the dirt to get it.
I'm especially a fan of good salad bars, which is why I am drawn like a bear to honey to OCB, Pizza Hut and Fat Jack's BBQ. Oh, and the pinnacle of cheap 'n' ample salad bars is at Rocky Rococos.
I know Fat Jack's ribs aren't gourmet, but their damn tasty, certainly a solid cut about InFamous Dave's. Jack has an *excellent*, if small, salad bar.
I get a kick out of all the FANTASTIC BBQ joints that people are writing odes to. If they were so great, why did they go out of business? I suspect they charged too much for the Madison market.
When I publicly lamented the death of Pizza Hut on University Avenue, one of the refined foodies here tried to comfort me with the news that an artisinal Pizza shop opened in Hilldale. Pardon my Italian, but fucka you. I know Pizza Hut pizza is marginal, but I'm not going to pay $12 for a small pizza, and most importantly, I really NEED a salad bar pit stop to get something green in me.
