Melt Down Grilled Cheese devotes four franchise locations to perfecting the art of what they describe as the "ultimate comfort food." The menu abounds with unique variations on the classic bread with melted cheese, such as the maryland crab filled with crabmeat and imperial sauce, and the baja chicken crusted with a corn tortilla and overflowing with avocado and monterey jack. Hand-dipped Häagen-Dazs milk shakes and grilled pound cake ice-cream sandwiches provide a sweet conclusion to any meal.

Within local favorite Matilda's Pub lies mad-macs, a comfort fare haven dedicated to the chefs' gooey mastery of mac 'n' cheese with a family-friendly vibe. Among rich espresso wood fixtures, overstuffed bench seats, and chalkboard walls covered in doodles, mac masters dish out decadent lobster mac with mascarpone cheese, philly cheesesteak mac, and Cajun shrimp and crab mac, among their many rich combinations. Around the eatery, abstract macaroni art tempts hungry eyes while kids are given supplies to craft their own masterpieces or a new set of edible parents before they go up on a special display wall. Behind the bar, bartenders mix adults-only milk shakes, and in the kitchen the chefs plate their culinary works of art as customers order fresh hand-formed burgers, Aussie-style crab cakes, and steaks.

From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon frosty foundations of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft-serve, which swirl idyllically into cones, cups, overturned top hats, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal surprise fillings of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.

Arranging delectable cuts of Angus beef and chicken tenderloin into small sandwich nibbles, Main Street Sliders' menu tackles hunger with a variety of sliders, savory appetizers, and combo meals. Fresh potato rolls house the meaty tenants of classic sliders, such as Philly-style chopped steak or thinly sliced ham, turkey, and roast beef, served cold or grilled ($1.30 each). Specialty sliders showcase palatable Southern fusions ranging from the pulled pork, drenched in tangy barbecue sauce, to the Southwest slider, crowned with an onion ring and cheddar cheese ($1.65 each). Side orders accompany feasts in the form of shoestring french fries ($2–$5) or tots ($2–$5), and appetizers kick-start nosh sessions with fried pickles ($4.50) and mozzarella sticks loaded with enough cheese to subdue appetites and craft delicate dairy jump ropes ($4.50).
