Domino’s has been decorating dough canvases with flavorful sauces, an assortment of cheeses, and high-quality toppings that range from classic to unconventional since 1960. Domino’s dough is tossed daily and stretched by human hands, not by clumsy catapults and model airplanes flying in opposite directions. Treat friends to a tasteful feast by checking the online menu and crafting a custom masterpizza with Domino's wide range of ingredients. Famished diners too starved to choose their own toppings can select from Domino’s American Legends, featuring signature flavors from throughout the land. Pizzas such as the Pacific Veggie, Honolulu Hawaiian, or Wisconsin 6 Cheese impart all the delicious diversity of a road trip without the hassle of decoding an atlas. Nonpizza fare includes pastas, sandwiches, and breadsticks.

Lucky Strike Restaurant’s hearty menu of nostalgic comfort fare carries on a tradition that dates back to 1955, when its building was converted from a bowling alley. The signature broasted chicken ($9.50 for three-piece dinner) slices succulent cuts of poultry turned golden by a signature cooking method pioneered by founder Charlie Dugre in the 1960s after froasting and troasting failed to catch on. Bone-in, center-cut pork chops ($12.50) add a choice of two sides to their already-significant bulk, much like a Santa tucking an extra pillow under his suit. At lunch, a platter of fish 'n' chips nets the catch-of-the-day before broasting it and mating it with fries and slaw ($8.95), and breakfast, starting at 6 a.m., lifts lids and perks up taste buds with a flock of omelets ($3.95–$6.50) and meat-centric Hungry Man platters ($7.25–$7.95).

For nearly 75 years, the family-owned Masse’s Fresh Seafood Market has distributed everything from Maine lobster to wild-caught Atlantic salmon to more than 350 New England restaurants and colleges. Lately, however, the HAACP- and kosher-certified market has added one more stop to its delivery route—­its own restaurant. At Masse’s Bar & Grille, fresh-off-the-boat morsels of shrimp, oysters, and clams grace an 8-foot-long raw bar, while the other catches head to the kitchen. There, cooks whip up classic and inventive seafood dishes, from mushroom caps stuffed with crabmeat to risotto tossed with lobster, shrimp, and scallops.

The culinary team doesn’t just stick to seafood—other options include pulled pork flavored with tequila-spiked barbecue sauce and paired with jalapeño cornbread. To complement each sea- or land-sourced feast, bartenders pour more than 25 beers by the bottle and tap, as well as plenty of spirits. Flat-screens behind the bar show the day’s biggest games, and a recent renovation has left the rest of the interior looking like a nautical wonderland, complete with porthole lights, 6-foot chandeliers, and all the bathing suits Steven Spielberg wore while filming Jaws.

Upon arriving in Cavalier Restaurant’s airy dining room, guests sink into spacious booths and cushioned chairs, pausing to admire tabletop arrangements of bright flowers before placing linen napkins onto their laps. Servers parade out of the kitchen bearing plates of European-inspired steak-house cuisine—crispy calamari, tender filet mignon, and succulent veal parmigiana. The restaurant’s chefs specialize in a variety of traditional Portuguese dishes including mixed seafood paelha and Camaraõ Mozambique—shrimp in spiced lemon butter.
