Rosati's pizza-centric menu swirls with a kaleidoscopic array of time-tested Italian fare. Sink teeth into a signature pie such as the Rosati's Monster ($16.85+), in which four kinds of meat and a cornucopia of vegetables snuggle atop a thin, crispy crust like a sleepy baker. The pizza bianco infuriates marinara-stained traditionalists with an olive-oiled vessel, decorated with fresh garlic, marinated spinach, and tomato ($14.35+). Wings unfurl themselves amid hot, mild, or barbecue sauces, and the Mexican-inspired pizza unleashes a savory mosh pit of seasoned ground beef, jalapeños, and onions ($15.85+). Rosati's pasta dishes ($7.90+) spin fork turbines to fuel the invention of new Olympic sports, and a lengthy sandwich menu provides portable victuals. Rosati's prices fluctuate depending on location, please check each location’s menu for exact pricing.

The culinary team at Los Gringos Locos designs intricate hunger-conquering strategies on a menu brimming with savory Mexican cuisine.

At more than 2,600 stores in more than 30 countries, Dunkin' Donuts serves coffee and iced beverages, fresh-baked donuts and desserts, and savory breakfast sandwiches. Since Bill Rosenberg opened the first location in Quincy, MA, in 1950, the donut shop has blossomed into a one-stop coffee and breakfast restaurant familiar to millions of morning rushers and afternoon sippers.

Behind the counter of each location, glazed french crullers twist and curve like Parisian city streets, and Bavarian Kreme donuts are filled with a sweet, golden custard. A cavalcade of meats is available for piling onto breakfast sandwiches, such as sausage, cherrywood-smoked bacon, or ham enveloped with fluffy eggs and melty cheese between a choice of crisp crusts. Health-conscious risers can fuel strenuous bouts of lifting cars in the drive-thru line with a Wake-Up wrap, which offers options such as egg whites with turkey sausage or veggies that add up to as few as 150 calories. Both sweet and savory selections pair well with a freshly brewed cup of coffee or a creamy, frozen Coolatta drink.

Though commuters can snag a quick pick-me-up within minutes, the wafting aromas of baking confections invite patrons to sit inside and embark on nostalgic reminiscences of syrup-coated playground slides. Beyond the bakery walls, the company aims for social responsibility with its support of community volunteer efforts and use of 100% fair-trade-certified espresso beans.

Country charm radiates from every accent in San Tan Cafe: the basket centerpieces filled with coloring books, crayons, puzzles, and card games; the wooden fireplace; the plentiful flowers and rustic decor. And, perhaps more importantly, country cooking infuses the entire menu, served only at breakfast and lunch. For an added homestyle touch, dishes of steak and eggs, biscuits and gravy, burgers, and chicken clubs come portions hearty enough to fill up the whole family.
