Hey Joe’s is a recent addition to the Warehouse District in Downtown Cleveland that is a restaurant and record store. Vinyl records of all musical genres are for sale, though somebody really likes their indie rock judging from the selection (no harm there)! At the end of the record display is an old shoe shine stand. Its atmosphere is fun and lighthearted decorated with salvaged doors, music posters and vintage signs.
While most famous for their hot tamales which are shipped all over the world, Hicks offers a full menu as well as serving delicious burgers. They also welcome parties, reunions, etc.
The menu options don’t stop with tamales and barbecue, although “that ain’t nothin’ to sniff at.” If you are hungry, choices like barbecue ribs, rib tips, fried catfish and homemade Italian sausage can more than whet your appetite.

Lillo’s was established in 1948 in an old American Legion lodge and for a time was both a restaurant and popular dance hall where couples only rules applied and singles could only eat. The Italian family introduced the Delta residents to pizza with homemade cheese, spaghetti and lasagna as well as their own versions of American dishes such as Italian nachos topped with jalapenos and beef or sausage. Today, the tradition continues with an expanded menu to include more seafood and steaks and they still serve their original recipe Shrimp Supreme broiled in thick lemon butter sauce.
