Since 1954, dough-sculpting artisans at LaRosa’s have crafted a menu of delectable Italian specialties using heaps of fresh ingredients and a family recipe. An array of tasty pies awaits hungry visitors, from the double pepperoni ($5.99–$14.99) to the buffalo chicken, which entertains a devoted entourage of black olives, tomatoes, and jalapeños ($6.79–$19.99). Customers can also hire toppings for freelance work on pizzas of their own creation ($4.79–$12.99 plus toppings). Shy meats and veggies hide inside calzones, such as the Philly cheesesteak calzone, which provides a toasted cavern of shelter for sirloin, white cheddar, onions, and stray cheese ($5.99). In addition, LaRosa’s boasts a spectrum of hoagys, salads, and pasta and offers a sweet adieu to finished meals with a dessert of Italian crème cake ($4.89) or cinnamon-sugar dippers ($3.99).
To the head baker of Sweet Eats Bake Shop, gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan desserts should be every bit as flavorsome as their sugar-filled counterparts. She whips ups all her tasty treats from scratch, and instead of relying on chemically derived sugar substitutes, she swaps in organic agave nectar, honey, and fruit juices, and replaces vegetable oil with pumpkin or applesauce. To further refine her wide variety of tasty treats—including cupcakes, moon pies, cookies, and fudge—she mixes in unsalted creamery butter and fresh-fruit purees from local farmers. Her mouthwatering baked goods hit the road in their food truck and can sweeten special occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, or graduations.
Quiznos' toastmasters fix a fleet of submarine sandwiches using butcher-quality meats, fresh toppings, and an array of artisan breads, which they artfully assemble as you watch. Signature subs (up to a $6.49 value, though prices may vary by location) come straight from Chef Zach Calkins's gourmet cookbook. The protein-packed prime rib & peppercorn swims with sautéed onions and mozzarella, and each Baja chicken sandwich—like a bouquet of roses set on fire—fuses the sweet and the smoky. The turkey ranch & swiss arrives piled high with lettuce, tomatoes, and red onions, and a convivial quartet of cured meats bathes in red-wine vinaigrette upon the classic italian sub. Feel free to trap condiments between nine-grain wheat, rosemary parmesan, italian herb, or italian white breads, or avoid the bun concept entirely by either ordering one of five chopped salads, such as the classic cobb, or ordering your secretary to send bread's calls straight to voicemail.
An aviation-themed pizzeria, Christy's Family Pizzeria battles hunger with freshly baked flying dough saucers and a menu that promises squadrons of sandwiches, burgers, and salads. Bite into a 9-inch Butcher Shop specialty pizza ($11.45), stacked with pepperoni and bacon and wrapped in nutritious newspaper, or sample a 9-inc Farmer's Market pizza ($11.45) that saves you the work of growing mushrooms, banana peppers, and baked dough yourself. Oven-born Italian hoagies ($5.25/half) jostle with grill fruits such as cheeseburgers ($4.35) and chopped sirloin ($5.25) for the favor of omnivores hungrily eyeing the menu. Patrons can stay to savor Christy's casual ambiance or hurry home with a specialty pie to share with the ghosts in their refrigerators.
Layer a bib over the Buckeye jersey tattooed to your body and head to Bunkers for some serious chewing, cheering, and debate over which 18th-century president was tops. The extensive menu of delectable pub fare encourages diners to push taste buds to their flavor-holding capacity. To ensure that no one pulls a muscle during the main course, warm up masticating muscles with an order of jalapeño poppers, cheese sticks, or potato skins ($5 each). Sandwich options sprint the gamut from the southwestern burger with fire-roasted onions, peppers, and pepper cheese ($5.50) to the fancy, French-speaking chicken cordon bleu, served with your choice of grilled or fried poulet, sliced ham, cheese, and a mustache of Dijon. The New York strip dinner is a house recommendation, served with seasoned potatoes, a small side salad, and Texas toast ($9). If you seek something a bit lighter, opt for the grilled birdie salad, marinated in your choice of mesquite, Cajun, or lemon-pepper seasonings and tossed with cheese, onions, tomatoes, and a hard-boiled egg ($6.50).
