Great BBQ. Make sure to bring someone with and split the 4 man meal. You get to try a little bit of everything they offer. Also add a Lynchburg lemonade, no one can make them like Zeke's bartenders.

Everyone loves a neighborhood dive bar. Even better is a neighborhood dive bar that doesn’t make its presence known. Abick’s is such a place. Expect friendly bartenders, cheap cocktails, and cold beers. And expect to possibly get lost trying to find it. How to get there: If you aren’t looking for it, you’ll never find it.

Whoever said that focus drives success was… well, let’s face it, they were probably a jerk. Or they were thinking of The Whisky Parlor, a brown liquor-based boozer with a name that leaves little room for misinterpretation. How to get there: Take the narrow flight of stairs from Foran’s Grand Trunk.

Good things come in small packages, especially when they're off the beaten path. Tom's turns into a honky-tonk cantina on select Sunday evenings and has been known to feature national acts on the down low. Buy a round of sarsaparillas for the whole bar and make lifelong friends. How to get there: It’s the oldest and most out-of-place building in this ‘hood. Knock twice, but gently -- the structure is a bit flimsy these days.
