1. Knife & Fork Inn 3600 Atlantic Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

The Knife and Fork Inn is one of the oldest AC restos (it was big during Prohibition) and is still going strong after a reno in 2005. It's got an awesome wine list and the cooks make killer steaks and seafood.

2. Tony Boloney's 300 Oriental Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401 (Boardwalk)

Normal pizzas fail in comparison to the inventive pies served at Tony Boloney's. Toppings include chicken and waffle; fig, homemade goat cheese, and local honey; and macaroni salad -- why forgo pizza for other food when you can simply put said other food on top of a pizza?

5. Tony's Baltimore Grill 2800 Atlantic Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401

Bring quarters for the jukebox at your table and be ready for a long night because the bar is open 24 hours a day. (The kitchen is dishing out grub until 3am.) The spaghetti has meatballs as big as peaches. Best for loud, rowdy types.

6. The Irish Pub 164 Saint James Pl, Atlantic City, NJ 08401 (Boardwalk)

With $3 beers, 50-cent wings after midnight, and rooms above the bar for rent starting at $25, we're pretty sure this classic Boardwalk Irish pub is run by Prohibition mobsters. So if you run into Nucky Thompson, we told you so.

7. White House Sub Shop 2301 Arctic Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401 (Ducktown)

There's no mistaking this Atlantic City deli's raison d'être: a giant sign above the 1940s corner diner displays a neon-lit sandwich above the words, "home of submarines." You're not just here for a legendary foot-long though, you're here for the Italian Sub. Layers of peppered salami, ham, and thick-sliced provolone join the requisite toppings of lettuce, tomato, onion, and hot pepper relish before the whole shebang is drizzled with oil and dusted with oregano. A half-sandwich could easily constitute a meal at White House, but get the whole one anyway.
