5 Restaurants To Try This Month: May 2024

May 1, 2024

1. El Camino Inn

After going on hiatus in March 2020, El Camino Inn returned late last year. The cozy, laidback lounge was updated with eclectic seating and decor, but the tacos, tostadas, tortas, burritos, and cocktails are as good as ever. It’s one of our favorite inexpensive date night spots!

2. Los Potosinos

Okay, so I featured Los Potosinos’ truck last July when they reopened after a long hiatus. But now they’re taking the extra step and opening their own brick and mortar this month! They’ve moved into the former What The Waffle storefront on East Long Street next to Interstate 71. You can still catch their truck, but very soon they’ll have a stable spot to enjoy their signature pollo al carbon.

3. Crazzy Greek

There’s no shortage of easy-to-love, casual Greek places across Columbus, from Greek Express and their amazing fries to hidden spots like Yappy Greek. Crazzy Greek is another one of those, tucked into a small strip mall technically in Westerville but just south of Polaris Parkway. They offer up terrific hummus, spicy feta fries, gyros, and spanakopita.

4. The Locust Table

The Locust Table is a delightful cafe in Powell with a brightly lit dining room and patio space. They offer Stauf’s coffee, scones and cookies, breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, breakfast sandwiches, French toast, and other morning favorites.

5. Little Ladies Soft Serve

With warmer weather arriving, it’s time to really start thinking about ice cream! And our favorite is Little Ladies Soft Serve. We fell in love with them a few years ago when their truck visited nearby neighborhoods, but nowadays we visit their Westerville shop. Their soft serve is the best we’ve ever tasted, but their sundaes really seal the deal. My first love was the Aggie with crushed puppy chow, mini buckeyes, peanut butter sauce, and hot fudge.
