Great Wraps eschews unhealthy oils and deep fryers in its menu of wraps and subs grilled to a crisp golden brown, earning praise from such publications as Arkansas Times. Fillings of thinly sliced steak and pepper-jack cheese are layered onto ciabatta and hoagie loaves, and juicy grilled chicken is enclosed in spinach, flour, or honey-wheat tortillas. Six different spices—including chili cheese and peppercorn ranch—can be sprinkled onto the eatery's fries with reckless abandon, and diners can rest assured knowing none of the Idaho-sourced taters contain any trans fats or passports to Canada beneath their crispy exteriors.

Though the entrees at The Dixie Cafe make the biggest splash across its menu marquee, they're threatened with gastronomical upstaging by the southern-style eatery's 19 sides and scratch-made gravies. The chicken-fried steak, for example, is a tender, hand-breaded fillet that fully blossoms with flavor only after chefs smother it with cream gravy and cheddar cheese. And the Cajun grilled catfish's down-home taste isn't fully developed until it is paired up with bites of turnip greens, fried okra, or a homemade roll. The classic platter meals take advantage of this by pairing an entree with two sides, rolls, and jalapeño cornbread and can be ordered "light" for a portion that's smaller than the regular size and easier to toss in the air and catch in your mouth.
