Visitors to The Point Bar & Grill inside Star Lanes Polaris can take comfort in familiar offerings to that of a neighborhood pub, though they aren't limited to that. Sure, the chefs specialize in sliders, gourmet pizzas, and savory tacos filled with the likes of baja fish and short ribs. And the bartenders keep their customers' pint glasses brimming with cold brews. But beyond the cushy booths and crackling fireplace lies an expansive arcade and bowling alley, packed with skee ball, air hockey, video games, and redemption prizes.
You can always count on being well-fed and entertained at Dave & Buster's. The sprawling entertainment complex features a full bar with specialty cocktails and a dining area that serves burgers, steaks, sandwiches, and other dishes. The franchise is known for its Million Dollar Midway, the uber game room that consists of rows and rows of blinking, ticket-spewing arcade games — more than 130 total with hundreds of prizes to redeem for.
The flavors of Mexico City get an inventive reboot at Cantina Laredo, which has specialized in modern Mexican cuisine since 1984. Over the decades, Catina Laredo locations have spread to numerous states, countries, and at least two planes of reality. Classic dishes fill the menu, including guacamole prepared tableside and hand-rolled enchiladas stuffed with everything from Angus beef to avocado and artichokes. At the same time, the chefs elevate and refine traditional flavors by creating chicken fajitas with bacon, mushrooms, and chipotle-wine sauce and filling tortas with slow-roasted pork, apricot spread, goat cheese, and fried egg.
As for drink pairings, the Casa Rita?Cantina Laredo's signature margarita?is versatile, its classic version including silver tequila with Cointreau and fresh-squeezed lemon and lime juice. Diners can customize their drink by adding flavors such as mango or tamarind into the mix.
Most meals on the menu start with Shane's barbecue sauce, which is concocted from a secret recipe passed down from generation to generation, much like folktales, uneaten fruitcakes, and the location of the Holy Pail. Saddle up with one of Shane's feastful plates such as the famously meat-melting ribs ($12.49 for half rack and $19.49 for full rack), which are wistfully glazed in "Big Dad's" secret barbecue sauce and cradled in a smoker for hours until moist and tender. The decadent, slow-cooked pulled pork ($8.49) or savory beef brisket ($9.99)—both of which are smothered in barbecue sauce before being nestled between two slices of texas toast—will require at least three napkins or an old bridesmaid's dress to keep your hands clean. Shane's poultry pastimes include tenders ($4.99 to $7.99), wings ($6.99 to $13.99), and a chicken-salad sandwich. All plates are served with texas toast and two sides, including baked beans, fried okra, french fries, French mimes, corn on the cob, and mac ‘n’ cheese. Shane's can also slide a ton of flavorful sandwiches, salads, and over 20 gluten-free options across its counter.
During the last three decades, Charley’s has shuffled up standard decks of carbs in a fresh, innovative fashion. Though the soul of Charley’s spawns from the beefy abyss of the signature cheesesteak sandwiches ($4.59–$8.99), the entire menu is flavorfully filled to capacity with delicious grilled combinations (prices vary by location). The chicken teriyaki sandwich ($4.89–$9.29) is quaint for a stomach sublet, while the Italian deli deluxe carnivorously conquers with a bed of pepperoni, ham, turkey, provolone, and generous dustings of Italian seasoning ($4.59–$8.99). Diners can load their gastronomic cargo-carriers with a combo meal, complete with Charley's famously crisp fries ($1.79–$1.89 for a regular order), or ascend a mountain of abominably coated fries featuring cheddar, ranch, and bacon
