    Fort Taco
    Owner Gabriel Patino and company transformed the former Brentwood Rally’s into Fort Taco, a homage to the food they grew up on. The restaurant calls itself traditional, but it’s not exactly Mexican. Patino uses the recipes of his great-grandparents, who brought their native cuisine with them when they emigrated to Fort Madison, Iowa. Fort Taco’s menu consists of just three main items. Traditional soft-shell tacos are its signature; the large, puffy, deep fried flour shells are stuffed with either beef or chicken and simply dressed are a feast in themselves. Enchiladas -- vegetarian, beef or chicken -- covered in a rich, ancho-chile-based sauce are equally delicious, and the handmade tamales are as authentic as anything you’d find on Cherokee Street. Fort Taco is drive-through only, and thankfully the long line moves quickly -- the friendly staff understand the urgency of getting this delicious food in their patrons hands as fast as possible.
    Frank Papa's Ristorante
    Behind the plate glass is a little gem of a restaurant. The dining-room tables are dressed in white linen, but the place isn't stuffy. The kitchen uses top-quality ingredients, but you won't pay top-drawer prices. The chef cooks the same menu year-round, but his classic dishes are ones you'll never tire of. This proverbial hole-in-the-wall has plenty of customers -- they just prefer to keep their secret to themselves. Private parties are welcome in the wine cellar and on the restaurant's lower level.
