When even the most inexperienced chef visits Dinners Done Right's spacious kitchen, she can whip up 12 meals in two hours; gourmet ones—from apricot-glazed pork roast to chicken fajitas. It all sounds a bit unrealistic, until you consider the hefty head start visitors have on the typical from-scratch cook, who typically only has scratch. The building blocks for each of their meals await—freshly pre-cut and prepped—at stations throughout the company's kitchen. With the assistance of a hostess, easy-to-follow instructions, and all the necessary kitchen tools, visitors simply combine the ingredients into freezer-ready containers, first seasoning them to taste with a host of spices and herbs. When customers get home, they can freeze their handiwork for a future quick and easy meal or bake, grill, or slow-cook it to impress dinner guests on the spot.

Try their chicken fried steak served with biscuits and country gravy, or the cinnamon-roll french toast?sliced rounds that are battered and pan-fried?all of which can be paired with mugs of hot cocoa topped with a mountain of whipped cream. If the idea of eating breakfast for dinner is a little too much to handle, try a pineapple burger, fish and chips, fettuccine alfredo, or meatloaf sandwich with a glass of wine or beer.

A backlit sign inside Trotters Family Restaurant depicts glowing images of ice cream scooped into ornamental glass dishes and decorated with chocolate syrup and cherries.

Pasta pomodoro, mushroom and swiss burgers, chicken tikka masala—the menu at Islander's Restaurant & Bar plays tribute to cuisines across the globe. At two locations, diners can enjoy island-inspired creations, such as hawaiian grinders layered with canadian bacon and pineapple, alongside Italian feasts of more than a dozen kinds of pastas and create-your-own pizzas. Chefs at the Auburn location master the cuisine of South Asia, infusing aromatic Indian spices into biryani, chicken curry, and vegetarian saag paneer. Weekend mornings bring breakfast to both locations—chefs drown biscuits and chicken-fried steak in country-sausage gravy and stack buttermilk pancakes into realistic depictions of the Roman Coliseum.
