House-made dough rises every day in the Parmesan's Pizzeria kitchen, where chefs toss it into pizza crust or bake it into the restaurant's signature cheesy breadsticks. Creative toppings crown these specialty pies, such as spaghetti and meatballs, spinach-and-artichoke dip, chicken cordon bleu, and the Padre pizza, whose five meats and extra cheese arrive baked within a World's Best Dad trophy. Calzones and sub sandwiches round out the hearty bill of fare, which patrons can have delivered at home, pick up themselves, or munch in a dining room equipped with a large-screen television.
A varnished wood bench gleams near the entrance of Panther Grill, formerly known as the Panther Inn, made from rough-hewn logs by the owner's father. The food inside is similarly homespun. In the morning, cooks toss omelets in pans and serve up platters of steak and eggs. Later in the day, they prepare hand-breaded pork tenderloin, freshly made cheeseburgers, or brown beans and ham served with cornbread. A rotating line-up of made-from-scratch desserts, such as layered Smores push pops and cinnamon rolls, beckon from a pastry case.

The iconic comic-strip character and namesake of Dagwood’s Sandwich Shoppes peeps out from the first “o” in the deli’s logo, embracing not his wife, Blondie, but the signature Dagwood sandwich. With its four meats and pair of cheeses, the delicious (if slightly intimidating) sandwich represents the more than 20 signature subs and clubs that grace Dagwood’s menu. Meats ranging from premium roast beef to tender pork loin share slices of bread with cheeses, crisp pickles, and all the condiments one might expect of an old-fashioned deli. Those too young to appreciate the shop’s Sunday-paper references will at least enjoy kids’ meals such as the classic grilled-cheese sandwich. Aside from their in-store selections, the deli caters events with colorful trays of meats and sack lunches served by a curiously cartoonish wait staff.
The Alli's Family Restaurant building has been refilling tanks along Historic Route 66 for 80 years. It began as a gas station, but then took on the mantle of restaurant and has never looked back or at the sun. The eatery's Facebook page contains sneak peeks from the full menu and includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes. Chicken-fried chicken and its menu companions are hearty enough to sustain patrons on road trips, whether their road trips are from Chicago to LA or the result of a stick in the middle of the highway.

In the game room, an iTunes jukebox plays pop hits as guests compete in rounds of skee ball, billiards, and Golden Tee.
