Chef Denise Roy, who helms the kitchen at Surf’s Up, knows the value of a good deep fryer: she slips everything from lobster and shrimp to green tomatoes into hers, creating delicious and crunchy seafood dishes. The fryer’s bounty is then dipped into sauces or nestled in tacos, competing with shrimp po’ boys and snow-crab legs for a place in diners’ stomachs, hearts, and hollow peg legs. Hand-cut fries and housemade biscuits accompany the seafood to the tables, which are grouped in a cozy dining room whose blond-wood food counter is decorated with a colorful skurker board, the offspring of a surfboard and a set of water skis.

Wingz slathers its signature fried chicken wings in a dozen different specialty sweet and spicy sauces. A 10-piece wing combo challenges dining groups of up to six to slather their wings in mild-barbecue, hot, or lemon-pepper sauce (other sauces available at $0.50 charge). Pause in between licking fingertips and comparing wet-nap scents to nosh on the combo's side dishes of fries, coleslaw, and bread. A sandwich combo, meanwhile, outfits hands with one of eight hot sandwiches and fries. Tender meat comprises the philly-steak sandwich, while the thinly sliced italian-beef sandwich celebrates Gallic influences with its drizzling of au jus, warm french bread, and dual usage as a festive battering ram on Bastille Day.

Low and Slow BBQ Turkey grills its turkey-based burgers, ribs, and sandwiches in an open fire tickling pieces of apple, cherry, and hickory wood. Load up on healthy protein with the turkey jerk burger with a small side of fries ($4.75, $0.35 extra with cheese), or sharpen fangs on a combo plate of barbecue ribs and tips ($10.95 for a small; $15.95 for a large). Unconventional turkey tacos ($2.25) or the turkey Polishes ($5.95) confuse taste buds without upsetting them, and sides such as the soy-oil-cooked french fries ($1.35 for a small; $2.35 for a large) complement any plate, including license plates. With the small catering tray, customers receive a choice of 18 turkey ribs, 12 turkey hot links, or a comparable amount of turkey tips heaped up with a sizable serving of fries and wheat bread.

Nick’s Deli, Pizza, Roast Beef & Seafood’s sprawling menu, lauded in the Marlborough Patch, runs the gamut from dozens of themed pizzas and calzones to family-recipe roast-beef sandwiches. A steaming meatball sub stalks elusive hunger pangs with torpedoes of homemade ground meat and sonar-guided sprinklings of feta cheese, tomato, and lettuce ($5.55 for a small; $6.65 for a large). Crunchy romaine lettuce and croutons chaperone grilled chicken in the caesar-salad wrap ($6.25), and a gooey Spartan pizza sows feta, green pepper, and chicken in a tomato-laden field of dough ($9.99–$14.99), just as ancient Italian pizza farmers once sewed their fields with marinara-sauce seeds.
