The bar at this ten-month-old, family-friendly spot in Old Town features two flat-screen TVs, but sports aren’t the only draw. For grazing, there are puffy fried cheese-stuffed ravioli with a flavorful tomato sauce, lightly breaded calamari with slivers of lemon, sweet-smoky baby back ribs, and a half-pound burger with molten cheddar and bacon. The kicker: a slab of chocolate/peanut-butter/banana pie named for the junk-food king himself, Elvis Presley.
