The ruleta wheel at Pancho Villa Mexican Restaurant sends tablefuls of friends into a frenzy when one of the bunch is chosen to take a spin. Landing on the right space in this wheel can grant the entire table free drinks from a selection of specialty margaritas and cocktails. This is just one of the ways the staff amps up the festive atmosphere in the restaurant—there's also karaoke every night Thursday through Sunday. And thanks to the flat screen televisions, patrons can keep an eye on their favorite teams as they face off with rivals or trade secrets for keeping their shoelaces tied.

Patrons come as much for the atmosphere as they do for the menu of chicken flautas, cheese enchiladas, shrimp chimichangas, pork ribs, and other traditional Mexican cuisine. When the weather's nice they can dine outside, where umbrellas protect their entrees from the sun's sticky fingers. Regular lunch specials and the Monticello location's lunch buffet make midday dining even more enticing.

When Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in 1941, the menu offered beef brisket, pit hams, barbecue beans, potato chips, drinks, and that’s all. By focusing on perfecting the flavors of a few dishes, Travis was able to increase quality, and, ultimately, customers. Patrons were so enamored of the food that the restaurant eventually expanded into a nationwide franchise, allowing Americans all over to wear badges made of barbecue sauce. Over the past 70 years, Dickey’s has been passed on to Travis’s sons, but not much else has changed—the quality meats are still seasoned and smoked on site, and except for the addition of spicy cheddar sausage in 2011, the menu remains the same. Regional meats ensure that the most succulent Texas-style chopped beef brisket, old-recipe polish sausage, and fall-off-the-bone pork ribs make it to tabletops. Sides such as mac 'n' cheese and green beans with bacon continue to enhance feasts with an extra punch of homestyle tastiness. Each meal comes complete with complimentary ice cream, soft rolls, and dill pickles.

152 Club Bar & Grill sates surly appetites with a menu of burgers, sandwiches, pizza, and more than 30 beers. Start the gustatory sojourn with fried pickles, spicy battered spears served alongside ranch dressing ($6), or dive mouth-first into the Island burger, a half-pound teriyaki-smothered patty dressed in a ring of pineapple, a layer of canadian bacon, and a space suit of vegetables ($8.75 with fresh-cut seasoned fries). The Club Stacker sandwich stacks smoke-pit ham, thick-cut bacon, and turkey breast between three layers of toast draped in american cheese ($8.25 with fries). The bacon-cheeseburger pizza represents a symbiosis of sandwich and pizza, sizzling with grilled hamburger meat and bacon on top of a thin crust covered in six cheeses and hamburger pickles ($12.25). A long list of beers, such as Blue Moon and Michelob AmberBock, gives guzzlers a choice of foamy beverages to wash down their grub, and seasonal draft selections rotate like a protractor playing Twister.

StoneLounge hearkens the rustic, welcoming ambiance of a mountain lodge, greeting hungry guests with a room-dominating stone-faced fireplace that smells like the good kind of burning. Amid the high ceilings and log walls, the chefs populate their lunch and dinner menus with an array of New American fare, including starters such as the southern fried chicken tenders and crab dip, which pair with walleye and myriad cuts of meat. Burgers patties in beef, crab-cake, and turkey form are whisked to the plush, high-backed booths, and flatbread pizzas come garnished with meaty toppings or collections of edible plants. Live music acts take the stage on Saturday nights, offering soulful and funky soundtracks to noshing, dancing, and debating whether the moon landing or the moon itself is the biggest federally perpetrated hoax.

Since first teeing off in 1989, Fox Hollow Golf Club has hosted regular state championships and the 2008 sectional qualifying tournament for the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, showcasing the club's 27-hole layout characterized by challenging play and picturesque surroundings. The course sprawls throughout 200 acres of hardwood forest and windswept prairie and is often blanketed by lush bluegrass and natural flora. The original 18 stretches along the banks of the Crow River for much of its 6,713-yard length, affecting play on five holes. Occasionally, golfers are forced to carry shots over the river, as is the case on the par 3 third hole, where players must aim their tee shots at the island green and hope the ball doesn't run off the steep sides or get eaten by an amphibious caddy. With two greens and a split fairway, the par 4 17th can take on two distinct identities or three creepy alter egos. If the hole is placed on the left side of the green, players are best suited to hit a small fairway landing area and execute a long approach, but if it’s on the right, they must blast their tee shot over two bodies of water to reach the green.Prior to a round, players can make use of the Fox Hollow practice facility, where they'll find a full-length driving range, three putting greens, and a practice bunker.Course at a Glance:
