Rosa Montes is proof that great flavor knows no borders. Born in Lima, Peru, she immigrated to New Jersey in the 1990’s, where she ran her own Peruvian restaurant for 20 years. Over that time, she tasted and learned to prepare classic American dishes, such as fried chicken, turkey with stuffing, collard greens, and broccoli casserole. When she and her family moved to Fayetteville, she decided to change tracks and open Rosa’s Home Cooking, a diner where she could feed customers her favorite soul food recipes made with fresh ingredients. Guests can find Rosa in the kitchen six days a week slathering ribs with bbq sauce, stirring pots of okra and corn, and making sure slices of strawberry short cake don't grow too tall.
Inspired by his love of Southern cooking, former NY Jets and Washington Redskins guard Randy Thomas opened Cameron's Kitchen to share savory made-from-scratch selections of fresh meats, seafood, and vegetables. Awaken nostalgic appetites with a starter of fried green tomatoes ($5.99) before biting down on a tender half-rack of Cameron's famous smoked ribs ($13.99). Meaty portions are served with a choice of two sides, such as corn on the cob or mac and cheese, ensuring no entree enters stomach soirees unchaperoned. Those who prefer their selections hued in Midas-baiting gold can sink teeth into hand-battered Southern fried chicken ($8.99 for two pieces of white meat) or dip into the catfish plate sporting a school of cuts caught and released into a crisping fryer or sizzling grill ($9.99 for two pieces). A selection of sandwiches, desserts, and kid-friendly options are also available, ensuring that bellies of all shapes and internal clock calibrations are filled.
Partners II Pizza’s expansive menu bursts like a bag of flour with gourmet pies, over-stuffed calzones, specialty sandwiches, and scrumptious pasta dishes. Guests can strategically arrange toppings such as fresh mushrooms, spinach, pepperoni, and jalapeños ($1.20–$2 each) on a doughy disc ($6.75–$14.50+) for a masterpiece that rivals Dali. Diners can also dig into the potato specialty pizza ($10.50 for small; $18.50 for large), which boasts a sour-cream base layered with bacon, green onions, cheddar cheese, and enough potatoes to starch an astronaut’s uniform. Nonpizza fare includes the Caesar salad wrap ($6.99), chicken parmesan hoagie ($6.29), and lasagna layered in fresh ricotta, mozzarella, and meat sauce ($7.25).
Entering Marlam Cafe is like taking a step back into the good ol’ days. After guests slide into plush red booths, which are set atop shiny checkerboard floors, they peruse a menu of classic American favorites, such as burgers, wings, root-beer floats, and hand-spun milk shakes. The old-school vibe carries into the eatery’s weekly line-dancing lessons and karaoke nights, all of which furthers Marlam Cafe’s mission to serve up an experience to families that’s equally as entertaining as it is tasty.
