Since 1954, Ray's Pharmacy has provided customers with prescription medicine, vaccinations, and trademark service at each location. Their team of expert pharmacists specializes in compounding, which is the practice of formulating customized medicines based on each client’s unique physiology. The full-service pharmacy not only fills prescriptions, but also provides free health information, a variety of immunizations, and home delivery for all medications.
Depending on the location, customers can stop by the gift store to pick up items such as scented candles, greeting cards, and Western–style apparel. An appointment-only gun department also outfits gun racks with high-quality shooters from makers such as Glock, Colt, and Smith & Wesson. Additionally, the Mansfield location houses a Suzy Q’s Soda Fountain & Grill, hearkening back to the days when customers could enjoy delicious soda and banana splits at their local drugstore and quarters still had Chester A. Arthur’s face on them.
New York–style, thin-crust pizzas topped with meatballs, anchovies, and green olives roll out whole or by the slice at New York Pizza & Deli. Though its name is a nod both to New York City’s finest and the legal right of the city's prisoners to one phone call and a slice of pizza, NYPD goes beyond pies. Its slate of classic subs comes stuffed with havarti cheese, thinly sliced beef, and spicy capicola from Boar’s Head. Big Apple memorabilia dots the walls of the casual eatery, where a Lady Liberty mural watches over patrons as they down salami-stuffed calzones or creamy new york cheesecake.
Featuring an extensive menu of creative American food—including The Reuben 1976, born on the restaurant and brewery's opening day—Humperdink's has served the mertroplex area for 36 years. Humperdink's boasts menu items such as barbecue ribs, sustainable seafood, steaks, gourmet burgers, and original buffalo hot wings, along with a number of award-winning microbrews crafted on the premises and served on tap.
Set just across the street from the UT–Arlington Mavericks' baseball field, Atomic Subs & Wings dons a lively, sports-themed atmosphere, indulging diners with savory American cuisine and wings slathered in homemade sauces. Pay tribute to favorite teams or celebrated outlaws by noshing the Maverick, a loaf of white bread brimming with a half-pound of feisty rib-eye steak, italian sausage, and capicola ($5.99 for a small, $11.99 for a large). Gravity-marooned snackers can don the specialty wings, which feature eight flavors, including the feisty Hellfire wings and the garlic and parmesan-garnished Rockstar ($16.29 for 24). Live music fosters a festive atmosphere and competitive chicken dance-offs on the weekends.
Owners Jolie and Ryan Stepp line Bedford Farmers' Market's shelves with fresh, locally grown produce and groceries as well as batches of their own homemade sauces and jams. Jars of mild and medium salsas ($4.99) teem with zesty tomatoes, and the atomic salsa's blend of fiery peppers infuses the condiment with more heat than the sun's romantic chemistry with the moon. Customers can season nachos with dollops of homemade guacamole ($5.99) or sup on a half-dozen of the market's renowned, hand-crafted tamales ($5.99). Cartons of 20 free-range eggs ($4.99) come from free-range chickens, which are raised humanely and unencumbered by unreasonably strict curfews.
