The raw ingredients that RJ Chinese Kitchen's staff uses to craft its classic Chinese-American cuisine is delivered twice a week to guarantee freshness. That's not the only straight-forward approach they take to food, either. Customers first choose whether they want rice or noodles as a side before selecting one of the beef or chicken entrees, all of which need no MSG or pixie dust to enhance their flavor.
At Cowboy Burger's & BBQ, cooks grill freshly sculpted burger patties to order and top them with savory toppings such as shaved pastrami. Diners can pair these meaty entrees with onion rings and zucchini fried in 0% trans-fat oil or stop by in the morning to fuel up with pancakes, omelets, and breakfast burritos.
Fried spuds are the primary focus at Potato Corner, where customers can pair their favorite potato product with various flavors and dipping sauces. Choose from original fries, spiraling loopy fries, puffy tater tots, or crispy potato chips before adorning fried tubers in one of four flavors: barbecue, cheddar, chili barbecue, or sour cream and onion. You can also make a meal of it by adding chicken tenders, opting for a chili cheese baked potato, or eating fries off of fancy china you brought from home.
Ono Hawaiian BBQ brings the island to the mainland with tender meats soaked in made-from-scratch marinades. Chefs hand roll chicken katsu in panko bread crumbs to give it a fresh, crispy texture, and assemble generous portions of crispy shrimp, island whitefish, and barbecue chicken in the seafood mix.
The Gringos Tacos family of guacamole gurus has retained their taqueria's catering roots while expanding into a restaurant and slinging tortillas from its very own food truck. American influences peek through in heaps of french-fry nachos, chipotle-aioli-drizzled BLT tacos, and guacamole made with Grant Wood paintings. Using high-quality ingredients and eschewing lard helps keep the menu of creative Mexican cuisine tasting fresh.
