<p>Spyridon Ganas’s breaded, cheesed, and fried eggplant topped with pepper and provolone and baked in a crisp sub roll is worth the trip. Eleven inches of vegetarian junk food for $1.50.</p> <p>Until the end of the month, when it closes for the winter, Wallace’s drive-in (right down the street from the Pizza Palace) scoops up gargantuan homemade ice cream cones. The toasted pecan fudge is especially good.</p>
