Meaghan’s is one of those restaurants that looks like a diner, but serves food that doesn’t taste like it came from one. On the menu are eight salads, 18 sandwiches, and dinners ranging from ribs and meat loaf to pasta Alfredo. Everything's done on the premises, from turkey roasting to ham baking. The soups are all great, but the ham-cheddar is special — thick and strong, beautifully gold. Seafood chowder is equally delectable. And whatta deal: You can get a bowl of soup, a salad and bread for $4.50. Or take home a gallon for $18.50.
