What sets the Hungry Howie's Pizza menu apart from other pizza parlors are the flavored-crust options that inject eight ingredients including butter, onion, ranch, and garlic herb into the commonly discarded pizza part. Specialty pizzas include the philly cheesesteak and the Howie Maui with ham, smoked bacon, and pineapple. DIY diners, on the other hand, can add their own toppings and try tasty wings, subs, and Howie bread, which comes in buttered garlic, three cheese, Cajun, and sticky-sweet cinnamon sugar.
Hungry Howie?s Pizza is a franchise that took flight back in 1973, when Jim Hearn converted a hamburger shop into a pizzeria. Since then, Hungry Howie?s remarkable success has forced other pizza franchises to start making their own crusts out of substances other than chipboard, aluminum siding, and old Styx LPs.
The same love for pizza and beer that fueled three college students in 1974 transformed their lives as they expanded their business from one rundown building in Atlanta to 100 Mellow Mushroom restaurants across 15 states today. Each eatery owes its individual style to each location's being locally owned and operated, much like impressionist painters owed their individual style to their number of ears. In the kitchens, chefs assemble grilled and deli-style hoagies and bake calzones and pizzas in stone hearths using dough made with natural spring water. Though many of the restaurant's dishes have remained on the menu since its inception, the culinary crew frequently devises new, often gluten-free, dishes to keep senior-ranking pepperonis from becoming too powerful. Servers pair dishes with their location's own set of local brews, which fit into a collection of up to 100 microbrewed and imported beers on tap and in bottles. Brewers such as Bell's, Abita, and Dogfish Head are also featured in regular beer events.
Traditional topping, such as mushrooms and olives, are sprinkled atop Pizza Schmizza Pub & Grub?s crusts. But more often than not, the chefs incorporate eclectic ingredients that leave tongues wagging. Baby red potatoes and sour cream top the Ol? Hickory, and garlic chicken and spicy peanut sauce flavor the Spicy Thai. Meatballs with marinara, Mexican-roasted chicken, spaghetti noodles, and alligator sausage top other crusts, all of which can be stretched up to 18 inches?enough to feed a family of six or one velociraptor.
The eatery?s decor is just as unique as its ingredient combinations. An evergrowing wall of sticky notes memorializes the thoughts of past customers, and a framed print of Chewbacca chilling with a surfboard and lei watches over the pizza chefs as they work. Sporting events flicker across a squad of flat screens, and on select nights, musicians play live tunes.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
The chefs at Tasty Crust Pizza concoct their dough from scratch daily, flatten it into thin discs, and cap the crispy pies with fresh toppings. Bury your nose in the restaurant's straightforward menu, then bury your face in a large carryout pie adorned with one of 14 toppings ($7.99), or bury family heirlooms under large, carryout, specialty pizzas such as the baked potato pizza or the bacon cheeseburger pizza ($11.99). Customers may dine-in to pair the pizza—the beloved superhero of foods—with a sidekick such as spicy fried ravioli ($3.99), wings ($6.99 for 10, $12.99 for 20), or a well-adjusted tax accountant.
Johnny's New York Style Pizza brings pizza-induced bliss with authentic NYC sauce ladled over thin and fresh crust and specialty toppings, as well as a variety of classic Italian fare and pasta dishes and a wide selection of beers. After perusing the menu, customers may choose a 16-inch wheel ($12.25) that rotates the flavorful spokes of steadfast smearings such as pepperoni or green peppers ($0.75–$3.05 per topping). Or, for extra credit, industrious high-school students can dissect the four chambers of the artichoke heart, unless they prefer pesto adorning their pies. For lunch, try a special combination, such as a slice of pizza with one regular topping plus a small garden salad and a soft drink ($5.55). Dinner orders for the pizzaly disinclined abound, such as Johnny’s classic lasagna, with layers of seasoned ricotta, mozzarella, meatballs, and sausage baked in a marinara sauce.
