GattiTown’s All-You-Care-To-Eat-And-Drink Buffet fills familial units with unlimited pizza, pasta, salads, and desserts in a fun environment (valid drinks are non-alcoholic). The sight of Gatti’s famous pizza will make your plate’s mouth water and subsequently beg for seconds. For dessert (or just a brief intermission between cheese sticks and SpaGatti), foster creative instincts by creating miniature Eiffel towers out of cinnamon sticks and slices of Dutch-apple dessert pizza. Diners can also accompany their meal with a televised view in one of the dining rooms. The sports room gives you a chance to bet on your favorite team using a stack of warm and buttery breadsticks. For movie critics young and old, the fun-flicks room flickers with family entertainment, and the café’s quiet, low-key atmosphere is tailor-made for devouring spaghetti blindfolded while discussing the influence of John Cassavetes's use of cinéma vérité on the Shrek movies. To make sure your feast doesn’t go straight to your thumbs, retire to the game room for 6,000 square feet of video games, skee ball, and more. However, the truly daring diner will want to stuff his or her stomach to bursting, then take in a few rounds on the bumper cars.
Since opening in 1978, the The Wild Turkey has employed chefs who perfect their Southwestern-style seafood specialties. They serve shrimp nachos slathered in jack cheese, grilled catfish drizzled in queso, and fresh Gulf oysters on the halfshell with a housemade dipping sauce. Besides seafood, the restaurant boasts various other specialties, such as chargrilled ribeye steak and 24-ounce Grande Margaritas.
Johnny Huntsman founded the first Johnny's Pizza House in Louisiana in 1967, calling it the "only link in the world's smallest pizza chain." The restaurant's signature pizza crusts, made fresh daily, soon caught on and led to rapid expansion. Although the restaurant declared bankruptcy in the late 1980s, Huntsman rallied enough support to pull his empire out of Chapter 11 by parading down the street wearing only a barrel with suspenders and carrying a sign saying, "Please Eat Johnny's Pizza." Today, Johnny's Pizza House's Addison, Texas, location continues to serve the franchise's tried-and-true dishes, such as buttery muffuletta sandwiches and 11-ingredient Sweep the Kitchen pizzas. While awaiting a specialty pizza, guests can study the contemporary dining area, which includes red accent walls, flat-screen TVs, and pizza paintings that are remade fresh daily.
Arezzo Italian Street Food quickly churns out fast, casual Italian breakfasts, chef's menu dishes, and build your own creations loaded with wood-fired meats, from-scratch dressings, and fresh produce. To curate their own meals, diners first decide whether they're in the mood for bowl of angel hair, a mixed green salad, a grilled panini, or a padeena?a wrap made with stone-baked flatbread.
Next, they choose a wood-fired protein, such as blackened salmon, housemade meatballs, or spicy brisket, and then a sauce, such as the hot creamy Diablo or cold roasted-red-pepper pesto. Toppings such as artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes come next, and sides slake any remaining cravings.
Patrons who feel daunted by the number of build-your-own options or refuse to be creative without overtime pay can opt for a tried-and-true combo, such as the shrimp carbonara pasta bowl. They can also grab breakfast eats, such as piadas, which are served all day long.
Pungent aromas fill the air at Java Me Up, where customers filter in for the specialty coffee drinks and gourmet sandwiches. The s’mores latte and white chocolate mocha are just two of 40 flavors available for fans of sweet caffeinated sips, while gourmet drip coffees showcase the rich profiles of beans gathered anywhere from Hawaii, to Ethiopia, to Juan Valdez's pantry. Meanwhile, croissants make a soft and buttery base for hickory smoked turkey sandwiches, and snacks such as biscotti, warm brownies, and organic salads round out the menu of fresh and light café fare.
