The Barking Pig 

The Barking Pig is a casual neighborhood bar and grill that leans more heavily on the bar end of the enterprise. Expect counter service, but feel free to grab a seat on the patio and have a runner bring your meal. With both the drinks and the food, it’s a good bet to keep things simple. The straightforward backyard cookout-style burgers are pleasant enough, as are the thin-crust pizzas. Stay away from anything that strays from the expectable model, like the truly disappointing ceviche. Don’t expect to be dazzled, but do expect to have a good time.
