While the heart of Johnny Carino's menu is rooted in genuine Italian traditions, forward-thinking creativity has birthed what they like to call their signature dishes. Led by executive chef Chris Peitersen, the seasoned kitchen staff blends fresh ingredients along with extra time to create high-quality, spiced Italian preparations. Diners will find entrees such as 16-layer lasagna with made-from-scratch sauce, and pizzas made with home-baked crust. Other signature choices include the spicy shrimp and chicken, baked stuffed mushrooms topped with house lemon basil cream sauce, and tiramisu made from the ground up. Entrees can be paired any selection from Carino's extensive wine list and drink menu.

You don't see too many bars like one from Cheers in reality. That lack of a friendly neighborhood bar inspired the owners of RC Fowlers to open their own pub. Their staff treats everyone like regulars, and the menu is rife with traditional pub fare. Here, you can grab a seat at the bar and watch college basketball, NFL Sunday Ticket, and other big games on a plasma TV, or order some of the eatery's signature wings. You have more than 25 sauces to choose from, from smokey barbecue to atomic buffalo. Other pub classics available include burgers, potato skins, and pizzas with red, barbecue, or buffalo sauce. Besides sports and comfort foods, RC Folwers welcome guests to stop by for games of pool, nightly karaoke after 10 p.m., and poker tournaments, and the full bar is open until 2 a.m. every night.

In 1996, the first Phil's Philly Grill introduced its signature hot sandwiches to Dallas from a single, modestly sized kitchen nestled into a bustling Metroplex. Because its founders brought decades of experience to the business, their sandwiches' of sauteed veggies and meats pleased anyone who got their hands on them. Soon, the concept steadily grew to occupy more than a half-dozen locations around Texas.

Today, sandwichsmiths at seven locations serve up everything from lena, certified rib-eye steaks?onions, peppers, cheese, and mushrooms included?to the Texas bacon barbecue burger, which understandably includes bacon, barbecue sauce, and a strange resemblance to the state of Texas. Phil's certified grill experts bring 40 hours of training to prepare chicken breasts marinated with 17-ingredients and hand chop fresh vegetables and cheeses. An array of Philly sandwiches, grilled salads, gyros plates, and wraps round out the menu. The ownership's commitment to hard work, passion, and fine meats have also spawned franchising opportunities for those looking to launch their own little bit of Phil's.

Since its origins as a converted parking garage, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has ushered film-lovers of all breeds into its auditoriums, even gaining a following among Hollywood legends; Quentin Tarantino has been known to host five-day movie marathons at Alamo. The theater has earned that reputation by making moviegoing a personal experience, from the menu of handcrafted snacks and locally brewed beer to the completely ad-free presentations before shows. A long table stretches in front of every row of seats, enabling servers to unobtrusively pick up written food and drink orders throughout each screening. The staff enforces a strict no-talking, no-texting policy by kicking out any offenders, falling just short of yanking them from their seats with a giant's shepherd's crook.

Both first-run blockbusters and classics are projected onto Alamo's silver screens in crisp 35-millimeter or digital format. Meanwhile, surround speakers immerse audiences in the cinematic soundscape, whether they're seated in one of the expansive theaters afforded to blockbuster reels or the more intimate spaces reserved for indie films wound around tiny bobbins. Despite Alamo's vow of silence, fan-centric Quote-Along and Sing-Along nights encourage guests to shout their favorite lines, and actors, directors, and other celebrities often attend special screenings to lead in-depth discussions. These exclusive events have led to acclaim for Alamo from publications such as Entertainment Weekly, which called it ?one of America's most fanatically unique moviegoing experiences,? and Wired, which opined that it "might just be the coolest movie theater in the world."

From 3D spectacles to afternoon matinees to early-morning showings on weekends, Southwest Theatres goes beyond the standard duties of a cinema with their seven screens. But the facility also recognizes that what you're snacking on is just as important as what you're watching. That's why it dishes out dollar hotdogs every day, and keeps its beverage machines stocked with more than 100 flavors of soft drink. The theatre also provides free popcorn seasonings, meaning guests won't have to steal a salt lick from any horses hitched outside.

Catching a flick at Moviehouse & Eatery is more than a feast for the eyes?it can be an actual feast, too. Outfitted with lush recliners and a friendly waitstaff, the venue's dine-in theaters invite guests to fill up on from-scratch dishes while watching the latest blockbusters. A full-service bar located in the lobby features local brews on tap, house wines, and signature cocktails, all of which can be delivered to viewers' seats.

But the focus on food doesn't mean the movies fall by the wayside. Take the Big House auditorium, for instance, where a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling screen offers one of the largest viewing experiences in the region. Additionally, some of Moviehouse's theaters feature D-Box seating. These specially programmed seats are synced to the action in the film, meaning they rumble during car chases and giggle during scenes with George Clooney.
