Jung's Mongolian Grill inspires culinary creativity with a family-friendly buffet of stir-fry ingredients and sauces. Guests can load bowls with a menagerie of vegetables, meats, and noodles before handing custom blends to the grill-masters. Staff members then toss and serve edible opuses, permitting patrons to take home their leftovers if they don't return for seconds or anger the door guard by snapping his fake beard. Alternately, diners can rebuild and revise all-you-can-eat concoctions until stomachs replace growls with thankful purrs. The grill battles cravings from 11:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. for lunch and from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. for dinner, elongating its hours to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Since 1981, TCBY has been synonymous with frozen yogurt. The company spearheaded the guiltless consumption of low-fat, chilled dairy treats with iconic flavors such as white chocolate mousse topped with fresh fruit and candy. Today, TCBY yogurt shops across the country continue the tradition with classic and specialty flavors such as caramel supreme, greek honey vanilla, and sugar- and fat-free mountain blackberry.
Burrito Girl keeps its menu short and sweet, ensuring that its kitchen crew can focus on crafting each dish fresh to order. Burritos fold around onions, cilantro, beans, rice, and meats that have never been frozen or even visited an igloo. A layer of cheese and pork or veggies fills each pupusa before they're fried to a golden brown.
Unsurprisingly, the big draw at Nacho's are heaping plates of nachos. The Mexican eatery prepares 10 versions (3 vegetarian and 7 non-vegetarian) of the dish, sprinkling tortilla chips with shredded chipotle chicken, taco meat, or three kinds of cheese. Add "the works" and each helping comes topped with refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, and special sauce. Kitchen manager Chef Alvaro, who hails from Oaxaca, Mexico, also whips up other Mexican staples including burritos, fajitas, and enchiladas.
Bob Cook isn’t big on labels. Take the word breakfast, for example. To him, a chili dog complements a sunrise just as well as an egg sandwich. That’s why he serves Bob’s Deli & Donuts’ entire menu of homemade pastries and deli fare from 5 a.m. until closing time.
As alarm clocks buzz around town, cyclists begin circling the shop, which boasts a parking station fit for bicycles and Bob’s own unicycle. Inside, friendly staffers slice freshly roasted turkey and ham by hand, tailoring the thickness to each customer’s liking, as patrons inhale the scent of frying bacon or deliberate over several styles of donuts. The deli also whips up vegan italian sausages bolder than coffee filtered through a megaphone.
The Lasagna Cart’s straightforward menu of Italian favorites pairs fresh salads and sandwiches with a selection of interchangeable pasta ingredients to help diners build flavorful fettuccine Frankensteins. Forge an edible noodle-friend with fettuccine, angel hair, or spaghetti, then douse creations in creamy alfredo, pesto, or marinara sauciness ($5.50) before adding chicken ($2), meatballs ($1), or veggie accents ($0.50). Forego the creative process by ordering a classic lasagna entree ($7.50) or pacify sweet teeth with a slice of homemade pound cake ($3), which, like dollar bill origami, is made from scratch.
