Dining out doesn’t usually involve sitting at a table with strangers, but be prepared for just such a community experience at Monell’s. Housed in a restored brick Victorian home dating back to 1905, this traditional boardinghouse-style lunch spot feels as if it has been around for ages, which is just what the proprietors want you to think. A meal at Monell’s is meant to conjure up family dinners at Grandma’s house, down to the old-fashioned home cooking, and everything is all-you-can-eat. Feast on fried chicken, meatloaf, and sliced beef roast with gravy. Kids eat for about half-price, and ages 4 and under eat free.
