Tazza Kitchen Arlington Ridge is a really great restaurant. It was opened back in 2014 so it's still new to the area. They cook everything over a wood fire. They also use seasonal ingredients found close to home. You'll want to call ahead and reserve a table. A popular appetizer is the meatballs. The meatballs are made with pork, beef, and veal so they are high quality and delicious. A cool thing here is that they have mix and match tacos so you can try any kind you want. The pizza is also a hit here.

Galaxy Hut is a vegetarian bar. They offer American classics but in vegan versions. A popular transition is the vegan cheese steaks. They have a tasting option with their beer so that you can find a new favorite. The selection of beer is pretty different so you might not be able to find the one you choose anywhere but here. There's a hipster vibe here with funky artwork on the walls and retro arcade games to play. Happy hour is from 5-7pm where you can get a cheap pitcher of beer along with other deals.
