The Slaw Dogs owner, Ray Byrne, probably didn't realize at the time that the Thai coleslaw he brought to a barbecue would become the inspiration for a business featured on ABC and mentioned in Travel + Leisure. According to a Food Network spot on The Slaw Dogs, Byrne tossed some of his extra slaw onto a hot dog and realized that he'd made a tongue-shattering discovery. With that slaw dog as his guide, he opened a hot-dog joint where his original discovery stars on the menu, jazzed up with accents of satay dressing and sesame aioli. But unlike Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone and then pretty much sat around eating Cheetos and playing scratch-off lotto tickets, Byrne isn't satisfied with a single invention. In fact, LAist praised Byrne for his ability to "take seemingly clashing flavors and make them work together," as evidenced in the Green Monster dog with garlic salsa verde or the gigantic TNT Super dog, a tortilla-wrapped spread of bacon pastrami, beer chili, and fries.
The Slaw Dogs also lets patrons build their own dream dogs out of 11 different franks, 10 sauces, and more than 50 toppings, such as kimchi, goat cheese, or truffle oil. The possibilities are almost endless; a group of Caltech students recruited by the Food Network calculated a whopping 35 quintillion total combinations.
Ranked the No. 1 Submarine Sandwich Franchise in the 2011 Franchise 500 issue of Entrepreneur magazine, Subway has graced the globe with nutritious stacks of meat, crisp veggies, flavorful cheeses, and freshly baked breads since 1965. Sandwiches, including the classic big philly cheesesteak (6", $4.75), can be left out in the cold or invited into a toaster, and the $5 foot-long subs are useful for measuring a child's height in cold-cut combos or the distance between the Earth and the sun in meatball marinara. There are also kids' meals to introduce children to the concept of eating. This eatery also opens for bountiful breakfast sandwiches served alongside cups of Seattle’s Best Coffee ($1.60 for 16 oz.).

SR Indian Cuisine's owners love giving back to their community.

Their menu of clay oven-cooked fish in curry sauce, lamb biryani, goat curry, and saag paneer is prepared that way daily and served in a welcoming and friendly environment.
After Congress instituted the Five-Second Rule in 1956, Americans had to develop a surefire way to keep their dinners off the ground. And thus, the kabob was born.

Much like the highway that inspired its name, Route 66 Roadhouse & Tavern is steeped in old-school tradition. The cozy neighborhood bar stays open until 2 a.m. seven nights a week, inviting patrons to set aside the stresses of work and everyday life by enjoying a cold beer in an unpretentious setting. To accompany its brews and cocktails, the tavern features a menu of classic American comfort foods that includes roast beef sandwiches, house-made potato chips, and a signature half-pound Roadhouse burger laden with cheese, bacon, and mushrooms.
Pool tables, dartboards, and glowing televisions keep guests occupied while they enjoy their food and drinks, although Route 66 Roadhouse & Tavern’s live music draws the crowds as well. The bar hosts everything from classic rock groups to punk bands throughout the week, and DJs also energize the atmosphere with their spirited sets. Additionally, open blues jam sessions are held every Thursday and karaoke nights allow patrons to take the mic and perform their favorite chart-topping hit or presidential concession speech.
