If the family is in the mood for Southwestern cooking, this West Village spot has a sizable menu just for kids. Lunch offers up wooden nickel pancakes ($6.50) and the Texas scramble with potatoes and a biscuit ($6.50), but the “served all day” list includes hamburgers, chicken strops, corndogs, quesadilla, grilled cheese and a pulled pork sammy ($6–$7). Order them the Frito pie—a bag of Fritos topped with beef brisket chili or veggie chili and cheddar cheese—and you’ll go home a hero ($6–$7). Even better: add an ice cream baked potato—don’t worry, it only looks like one—for a superb treat.
