Tokyo has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city in the world. It’s a difficult reputation to live up to, but Tokyo Japanese Restaurant attempts to uphold the traditions of this culinary heavyweight with its menu of authentic Japanese cuisine.
The three-course hibachi meal for two is perhaps the best display of the eatery’s extensive offerings with its shrimp appetizer, choice of soup or salad, and a triumvirate of sirloin steak, shrimp, and chicken. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant also boasts a large sushi and maki menu filled with common favorites, such as spicy salmon rolls, and more hard-to-come-by selections, such as quail egg and spicy crawfish.
Legends at Back Achers Ranch calls itself a western-themed restaurant—and that's not just lip service. Diners can slide into booths and chairs situated next to floor-to-ceiling windows that offer an unimpeded glimpse into Back Achers Ranch's arena, which plays host to horseback riding and rodeo events. Riders taming bucking bulls and galloping on their steeds provide an entertaining accompaniment to American food delivered to tables surrounded by walls of rough-hewn wood and corrugated metal. Guests snack on fried squash or pickle slices while browsing the menu's entrees, including fried lemon-pepper catfish, barbecue bacon cheeseburgers, and chicken-fried steak. An array of hearty sides like mac 'n' cheese and mashed potatoes with gravy, meanwhile, ensure that cowboy-sized appetites are satisfied before a day full of lassoin' and boot-scootin'.
For new guests unfamiliar with their restaurant, Darrell and Jan Wiley of Smitty's Bar-B-Que have one piece of advice: relax. They cannot rush the process of building dinners from hickory-smoked meats and hearty sides; thus, they implore impatient diners looking for fast food to seek it in New York City. As guests shoot the breeze in the saloon-style dining room—decorated with wood-paneled walls and vintage signs—they can rest assured that their sandwiches, ribs, and half chickens are receiving the individual care needed for them to shine.
