Kingpin Lanes facilitates retro revelry with 24 tenpin bowling lanes, leagues for men, women, and children, and an arcade stocked with video games. More than 10 television screens shine down into the facility, allowing bowlers to simultaneously watch sports and play a sport without having to ice-dance during a professional hockey game. After achieving a new high score in Kingpin's arcade, visitors can refuel at the in-house Brickhouse Pizza Company. Its specialties include classic pies in addition to sandwiches such as the Kingpin combo with ham, roast beef, salami, and provolone cheese.

Family-owned Angelo's Chicago Taste evokes the Windy City with its menu of quintessential dishes, such as italian beef sandwiches, gyros, polish sausage, and Chicago-style hot dogs piled with neon relish. Freshly sliced meats and cheeses nestle between warm breads, beckoning patrons to indulge in a true taste of classic Chicago eats. Most of the ingredients are made from scratch from family recipes right in the kitchen, adding a dose of freshness with each slice of gyro meat shaved off the rotisserie, mound of italian beef, and sizzle of freshly ground meat.

The hiss of sizzling fajitas mingles with the maraca-like sound of a margarita shaker and the popping of caps from imported beers. Harmony such as this comes easy at Acapulco Restaurant & Lounge, where staff has been serving up authentic Mexican dishes for more than 20 years. Each night, tables populate with traditional Mexican fare such as charbroiled steaks and steaming chili rellenos in spicy sauce, as well as chilly margaritas in glasses and pitchers.
At It’s a Better Burger, staff focus on one thing: how to make the tastiest creations ever to fill slices of bread. Their entire menu can be broken into three distinct sandwich categories, featuring their gourmet burgers, chicken sandwiches, and specialty sandwiches, all of which showcase their love of this gastronomic genre. Burgers come in three sizes or with two patties, and can be topped with everything from barbeque sauce, pulled pork, and haystack onions to garlic mushrooms and sweet peppers. Their chicken sandwiches transfer the flavors of the burgers to a grilled or crispy chicken breast, while the rest of the menu is dedicated to classics such as the BLT and unique versions such as the chipotle salmon burger. They offer a select menu of diner fare with their burgers, pairing dishes with fresh fries, fried corn on the cob, hand-dipped milkshakes, and their famous cheesecake.
