For lunch or breakfast/brunch try Boychik's. It's a really good deli. Also for breakfast, Cupertino's is supposed to have really good bagels.
If you want drinks, Capital Ale House has tons of different kinds of beer and decent food. The frites with 4 different kinds of mayo are a must try!
For BBQ, check out Grandpa Eddie's. Really good ribs, fried okra, smoked kielbasa and burnt ends if they have them.
