El Loco Mexican Cafe invites wandering gastronomes inside to pick tasty stomach stuffers from the menu of Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Nuevo-Southwestern cuisine. After sampling homemade guacamole ($5.50) or a shared platter of turkey-stuffed Buenos nachos ($11.25), diners frighten away their hunger by exposing it to chicken mole negro ($15.50), quesadillas filled with the likes of ancho chicken, portabello mushrooms, or just plain queso ($9.25–$12.25), or a chorizo chimichanga sautéed with onions and peppers, wrapped in a tortilla, and deep fried to the color of a golden-brown rose ($11.25).

Ballistic Shrimp Steamed Seafood serves a menu of fresh, quickly prepared seafood with a healthy twist. Instead of deep-frying their fare like typical fast food restaurants, they steam or boil shrimp, crab legs, and fish to serve alongside fresh vegetables or homemade chowders and bisques. Combo meals allow diners to sample a variety of seafaring delicacies at once including Canadian salmon, Brazilian lobster tail, and American shrimp that spent a semester abroad. The ocean-blue dining room features starfish and seashell accents and offers limited seating at round, high-top tables.

At 6 p.m. each evening, the scent of sizzling burgers begins to waft from the kitchen of Munch Pit, a Central Avenue diner that once held Portelli?s Joe N? Dough Cafe. That savory scent draws in crowds for Smacker burgers, wings, house-made donuts, and frosty swirls of soft-serve ice cream. But the spot's cooks man the grill long past dinnertime, serving patrons until 5 a.m. Munch Pit's decor, like its menu, celebrates classic Americana?red stools line a soda-shop counter, and the entire cast of The Music Man marches past every 15 minutes.

The technicians at Justin’s Car Wash Center don’t stop caring for cars after they’ve scrubbed windows and chassis clean during an extensive interior and exterior wash. They also journey under the hood ornament for a premium oil change, after which they complete a safety check and top off all fluids. Other automotive services keep engines running strong as the techs flush out old and expired fluids and measure exhaust pipes' CO2 and designer-perfume emissions in state smog checks. Matching interior excellence to exterior beauty, Justin’s Car Wash Center diligently details rims, carpets, and engines with three packages and express, à la carte services.
