From behind a frozen granite slab, the staff of Cold Stone Creamery uses twin spatulas to blend custom servings of ice cream and creative mix-ins to fit customers? exact specifications. Founded by Donald and Susan Sutherland in 1988, Cold Stone began under the hot Arizona sun, eventually spreading its frosty fingers to encompass more than 1,400 locations worldwide. Despite the size of the company, each location?s staff keeps up the handcrafted quality, making ice cream onsite every day and using those signature spatulas to create delicious pointillist art against the freezer wall.
There's a full spectrum of flavor inside Smitty's Homemade Ice Cream, where frozen treats form a sweet rainbow from classic to unexpected. Simple vanilla shares space inside coolers with the likes of coconut almond, amaretto cherry chip, bubble gum, and other tasty scoops. The ever-changing flavors come from owners and siblings-in-law Tom and Amy, who opened up shop in 2002. Their ice cream creations pair well with other selections from the menu, such as fresh fruit smoothies, and frozen coffee blasts.
La Fiesta Restaurante Mexicano?s classic dishes have earned the eatery a long-standing award proudly displayed on the website: Best Mexican Restaurant nine years in a row, as voted by readers of the Times-News. At the start of each workday, the restaurant?s chefs fry the popular tortilla chips and whip up bowls of salsa. Then they get to work on such dishes as chicken simmered in a chipotle cream, char-grilled steak tacos, and spinach burritos.
Despite its rather insistent name, this second-generation pizza purveyor, serves its signature brick-oven pizzas alongside a variety of Italian dishes, and heaping helpings of friendly local flair. Starting with a crust that falls somewhere between thin and traditional hand-tossed, Just Pizza cooks each savory pie to-order, using fresh ingredients, house-made sauce, and premium mozzarella cheese sourced from only the most outwardly affectionate cows. Dress a large (14") cheese pizza ($10.75) with your favorite add-ons such as sausage (+ $1.25), pineapple (+ $1.25), hot dogs (+ $1.25), or a smaller cheese pizza (+ $9.75). Or, feed an entire army of slice-slingers with the five pound supreme pizza ($19.50), sporting supporting sustenance in the form of extra cheese, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, black olives, beef, sausage, and pepperoni.
For diners looking to dine beyond the realm of dough disks, Just Pizza complements its circular comestibles with a toothsome array of fresh salads (starting at $4), baked pastas ($5.50+), and calzones ($5.75+). Because it passed on the opportunity to call itself "Just Tables", Just Pizza is a carry-out only facility, arming patrons with piles of hot, aromatic eatables, and then sending them on their way to feast in the comfort of their own homes.
Piedmont Ale House is a locally owned ale armory that’s stocked with creative pub fare, and while not valid with this Groupon, it also boasts 19 beers on tap, and more than 100 bottled beers.

Elect an entree such as the pastrami reuben ($7.95), bourbon burger ($7.95), or the santa fe chicken pizza ($9.95). Patrons can cheer for their favorite sports cameraman on Piedmont Ale House's nine TVs, or come in for live, local entertainment.
