Tucked into a quiet strip mall, Poppie’s is the kind of place that’s easy to overlook. But since 1985, it’s been a neighborhood go-to. Sure, the clientele skews older, but customers here are also wiser, as they flock in for specialties like the prime rib and braised baby back ribs. The red covers on the windows make it impossible to know how light or dark it is outside, so it’s far too easy to order one more martini from the friendly, no-nonsense staff.
