Top This! Roast Beef, Burgers & More caters to every type of sandwich craving with custom creations—and then overloads those sandwiches with toppings, dressings, and sauces. Customers choose from nine proteins, including slow-cooked roast beef, natural chicken breast, and housemade black-bean burgers, and then pile on six cheeses and dozens of toppings, such as black-bean-and-corn relish and Angus chili. The restaurant's cooks also grill juicy Angus burgers that one WRAL.com reviewer claimed rejuvenated his faith in humanity. Its sister restaurant, Top This Café at The Atrium, quashes hunger with custom omelets and breakfast sandwiches, plus lunch options.

From one storefront on the beaches of Jersey to hundreds of locations that span the coasts, Jersey Mike's Subs has been bringing the flavors of the boardwalk to towns across America for more than 50 years. Using ingredients such as sliced-to-order ham, salami, and provolone cheese, they craft zesty hot and cold subs such as the Club Sub—turkey, ham, provolone, bacon, and mayo served "Mike’s way" with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, olive-oil blend, red-wine vinegar, and spices. They also carry delicious and nutritious wraps, and all sandwiches can be served as a Sub in a Tub—a bread-free alternative that compiles all of the ingredients into a salad-like bowl.

Tony, the owner of Bandido’s Mexican Cafe, learned the tricks of the trade while working at his family’s Mexican restaurant as a teenager. Today, he and his wife own and operate three Bandido’s locations, which serve sizzling fajitas, crisp tacos, and burritos stuffed with beef, chicken, pork, or sautéed spinach. The Herald-Sun's readers praised Bandido's as the Best Mexican Restaurant in 2009, and the restaurant returns the favor by awarding individuals who finish the El Gigante burrito—a massive compilation of steak and chicken fajitas, rice, black beans, and shredded cheese—with a T-shirt and gentle pats on the back. The restaurant often hosts live entertainment, and the Durham location supplements its selection of lunch and dinner fare with a Sunday brunch menu served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Antique Turkish tapestries hang from Talulla’s deep red walls, beaming down on tabletops and ornate cushions. The restaurant’s plush decor and vibrant music creates a suiting backdrop for its menu of bold Turkish flavors. Talulla’s chefs draw from ancient Ottoman recipes to prepare small plates of hot and cold mezzes and exotic entrees of meats, vegetables, and seafood in traditionally healthy Mediterranean cooking methods. Meanwhile, bartenders dole out glasses of fine wine, imported beer, and seasonal cocktails. The restaurant even offers a complimentary valet service, conveniently parking customers’ cars or toy red wagons that customers like to pretend are their cars.
