The Back Yard Burgers story begins more than 25 years ago in the small town of Cleveland, Mississippi. It was here in 1987 that Lattimore Michael first began making homemade burgers in his grocery store. Before he knew it, the popularity of his burgers began to skyrocket, and a year later Lattimore was able to open the flagship Back Yard Burgers location. Fast forward to present day, and the crew at each Back Yard Burgers still serves up 100% North American Black Angus beef burgers and sandwiches cooked to order. They charbroil signature creations such as the barbecue bacon cheeseburger, a 1/3-pound patty topped with hickory-smoked bacon, american cheese, and barbecue sauce, as well as signature chicken sandwiches. Angus beef chili and 100% beef hot dogs round out the menu, complemented by hand-dipped shakes and malts just like grandma used to make and grandpa used to hide in his underwear drawer.
HuHot Mongolian Grill's cooks specialize in the stir fry. They work before a truly enormous grill, searing meats, noodles, and veggies in glazes of 12 Asian-inspired sauces. Rather than concoct the recipes themselves, though, they leave the specific composition of each dish up to the customer. Diners choose a protein and accompaniments such as bean sprouts, broccoli, and cilantro, as well as sauces that range from mild hoisin to a searingly spicy barbecue sauce called Khan's Revenge.
Ever since Sam Wolfinbarger opened up his downstairs bar in the early '40s, Sam's Cellar has been a favorite watering hole among happy hour crowds, strangers passing through, and neighborhood regulars alike.

Named the #1 pizza by Coweta Readers’ Choice in 2010, Goodfella's Pizzeria lifts cheese and sauce from the dreams of Italian chefs and serves them in a simple, laid-back atmosphere. Saddle up taste buds to scrumptious menu items such as the Boss pizza, a customer favorite loaded with pepperoni, beef, two kinds of sausage, Canadian bacon, and a garden of vegetables plopped onto a thick cushion of cheese ($10.49 small, $16.99 large). Or enjoy the Hoffa buried-in-cheese pizza, on which layers of pepperoni rest beneath a thick, gooey entombment ($9.49 small, $15.99 large). Besides pizza, Goodfella's fetes diners with homemade subs, fresh salads, breadsticks, buffalo wings, and packed calzones that serve as a handy snack for those swathed in the tail end of a two-person horse costume.
