The Italian Store is our move for lunch in Arlington, mostly because you can’t go wrong with any of their classic subs. Each is huge and topped with hot and sweet peppers and their special dressing (our favorite is “The Napoli,” in all its pepperoni-ham-mozzarella glory). But if you don’t want a sandwich, New York-style pizza is good too, and can be ordered by the slice. Seating is tight (but they do have a small patio at the Washington Blvd. location), so we’d suggest taking your order to-go. If you’re feeling really motivated and want to actually cook for yourself, their market, with hundreds of bottles of wine, gelato, cheese, and pasta, has all the ingredients you need for an Italian feast.

Texas Jack’s Barbecue

Texas Jack’s in Arlington is a bit fancier and more buttoned up than your typical BBQ joint, but the food is very good.
