Sparti's Gyros certainly celebrates its namesake. But like a Greek myth where Zeus is replaced by Mike Ditka, the menu brings together Mediterranean and Midwest culture, listing Maxwell Street Polishes and Chicago-style hot dogs alongside plates of spanikopita and saganaki. Guests can also garnish their meals with creamy homemade tzaziki sauce, and cap off Greek-American feasts with sweet, flaky baklava.
Housed inside a castle-esque building, replete with a towering turret, House of Lords Restaurant and Lounge treats its guests to regal feasts of prime rib, potatoes, and salads in a cozy environment. Guests belly up to the bar for frosty goblets of ale or sip cocktails with steak-house meals in tucked-away booths and nooks lined with bookshelves.
Putt-putters of all ages can bask in the soothing, phosphorescent splendor of a Glowgolf mini-course as they navigate their illuminated golf ball through glowtopia. Courses contain sights such as light-defying blush corals, incandescent fishies, and lush foliage. Each pass is good for three 18-hole games, giving golfers ample opportunity to out-maneuver any vividly bright and very alive windmills that may appear. Equipment is available on the spot, so you won't risk bending your own putter when you chase after that pesky, good-for-nothing, hole-digging, ball-stealing, and most likely hallucinated gopher.
At Casa Azul, diners can feast on combination platters consisting of Mexican favorites such as enchiladas, burritos, and tacos, but there also are some unorthodox selections worth trying. Take the molcajete entree, for example, which combines cactus, steak, chicken, chorizo, and shrimp in a bowl made from volcanic rock, or the chihuahua-cheese-topped baked spaghetti and chicken, which combines Mexican food and whatever cuisine spaghetti is associated with.
The Depot Express delights hungering tongue buds with a smorgasbord of specialty pies, as well as a slew of toppings for persnickety pizza patrons to create their own. The menu boasts belly-please combinations, such as the omelette breakfast pizza, adorned with egg, green pepper, onion, mushroom, canadian bacon, and the lactic duo of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses (12" for $12.99), and the supreme pizza, blanketed with beef, sausage, pepperoni, onion, mushroom, black olive, and green pepper (14" for $14.99). The barbecue-sauce-slathered cowboy ranch variety loads on the meat ($16" for $16.99), while the taco pie dons a disguise of refried beans, ground beef, and piñata-shaped tortilla chips to hide from pizza-centric crime syndicates (12" for $12.99). Dough-based artists can create a meal masterpiece with traditional toppers, as well as more exotic trappings, such as fajita chicken, pickles, and sauerkraut ($10.99+). Individual pizza slices are perfect for light snacking before deep-space diving expeditions ($1.98).
