So established is Circle K that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for?fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.

After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer theTake Away Fresh Caf?, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.

It's not an overstatement to say that everything on the menu here is made from scratch. So when diners sink their teeth into the dense crust of a Godmother's deep-dish pizza, they know the pizza was made fresh that day and was never preserved for years between the pages of a heavy book. In addition to deep dish, the kitchen also crafts thin-crust pizzas, which can be topped with a specialty selection of toppings like theTommy Gun pizza's buffalo chicken and spicy cream sauce or the Anastasia's chicken and alfredo sauce. Generous plates of pasta and hearty meatball or beef sandwiches are big draws too, each also made fresh in house.

The mexican taco sounds self-explanatory, but at Pizza for U, the moniker refers to a specialty pizza. Crowned in refried beans, taco meat, and tortilla chips, it evokes Mexico without abandoning the menu’s bedrock dish. Other specialty pies, such as the sauce-less white pizza and a meat lover’s pizza with two types of sausage, round out the selection, along with build-your-own variations in thin crust and deep-dish styles. Meanwhile, burgers, gyros and three types of chicken wings suggest an alternative to pizza, much like the Ninja Turtles’ personal trainer.

Grill Marx's menu is composed of dishes made with fresh ingredients, such as meats culled from Tischler's Market in Plainfield, and using filtered reverse-osmosis water. Appetizers include the hand-pattied Louisiana-style crab cakes, which are sweetly kissed with a cajun remoulade mayo ($9), and the BLT baked clams, which play peek-a-boo under a blanket of tomatoes, bacon, and herb cracker crumbs ($9). Noontime noshers can wrap mitts around a bevy of juicy burgers and sandwiches, such as the black eye, a double-layered rib eye topped with mozzarella on an egg bun ($9), or stab forks into Strawberry Fields Forever ($9), a baby spinach salad decorated with fresh strawberries, mandarin oranges, candied pecans, and lemon poppyseed dressing. Evening entrees include lemon chicken parmesan sidekicked with artichoke hearts and fresh spinach ($15), and an 8-ounce hand-cut filet mignon plated with sliced portabella mushrooms ($24). Grill Marx augments its atmosphere with seasonal beers on tap and the invisible rays of WiFi.
