Traditional carpets hang across the ceilings above diners at Ali Baba Family Restaurant. Seated beneath them, guests dig into plates heaping with kebabs, shawarma, and hummus paired with freshly baked bread. Specialty pizzas are also available, along with vegetarian options for those who prefer to pizzas that aren't carved whole out of a large chunk of meat.

Mezzah dishes out a delicious tapas menu populated by shareable servings of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Greek cuisine. Pop the contents of a plate of garlic-and-chili-pepper-infused olives (a $5 value) into your open pucker for an aromatic appetizer with hints of sun-dried tomato before saturating already-marinated greek meatballs (a $6 value) in a dish of creamy greek yogurt sauce to cool down your palate. The Turkish-style meat-and-hummus plate (a $7 value) tops the creamy chickpea spread with a succulent crown of marinated ground beef, and vegetarians can delight in the Mezzah antipasto (an $8 value), a dish featuring assorted grilled veggies, feta, olives, and a noticeable absence of pasto. Because whistles cannot be wetted on tahini alone, diners and their dates can sweetly sip two glasses of house wine alongside their meal (up to a $6 value each) or apply the value toward a more expensive libation.

For more than 30 years, Quiznos has toasted its submarine sandwiches to bring out the hidden flavors found in butcher-quality meats, cheese, and artisan breads. Its classic and signature subs take on a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles ranging from the prime rib mushroom and swiss to the classic italian donning black olives, mozzarella, red-wine vinaigrette, and plentiful sliced meats. Those closely monitoring their waistlines can take unabashed bites of sandwiches that have fewer than 500 calories, such as the pork-cuban, Baja-chicken, and veggie-caprese subs. Quiznos' Sub Sliders offer slimmer versions of sub fare and flaunt supreme aerodynamics when shot out of T-shirt cannons and into mouths. A selection of Flatbreads, soups, and salads round out Quiznos' varied menu.

Naming your kids Oak, Willow, and Pine Glen might raise some eyebrows—unless, of course, those "kids" are actually golf courses. That's certainly the case at Sycuan Golf Resort, where a family of three distinct layouts presents an array of challenges across 54 holes. Located near some of San Diego's most popular attractions, the resort has played host to a number of prestigious tournaments, including the Junior World Championships and PGA Chapter Shootout.

The resort's pair of championship courses—Oak and Willow—boast numerous similarities. Both check in at just under 6,700 yards and prominently feature the Sweetwater River in their layout. Pine Glen, meanwhile, is a challenging par three course that stretches to just over 2,400 yards. After severe flooding in the late 1970s, each course received a facelift from renowned architect Ted Robinson, Sr. He added elevation changes, tiered greens, and even man-made lakes that test drive accuracy and sate thirsty golf carts mid-round.
