Is there any place nearby with some good food that ISN"T a chain?

      Tough question. I'd recommend heading up to Squirrel Hill, plenty of non-chains up there. Even with traffic it's not much more than a 10 min drive.

          Green Mango at the Watefront is closed and is currently a Pizza place.

          I've also heard good things about Blue Dust but have never been. I own a business in the area and eat at Me Lyng pretty often.

          We went to blue dust last weekend and thought it was pretty good and definitely NOT a chain. when you go on amity to head up the ramp to the bridge, you make a left at the stop sign and it is right on the other side of the track. Very very big beer selection. They have pierogie specials and wing specials. Our sandwiches were pretty good. I had the pulled pork and enjoyed it a lot and was mostly happy not to be eating chain food. Please check it out!

              The beer selection at Blue Dust is spectacular. I've never seen so many Weyerbacher beers on tap!
