At Peking Wok, supple meats and veggies sink into Mandarin- and Szechuan-style sauces crafted from scratch each day. Diners populate the dining room for lunch, dinner, or a family-style grazing session, complete with soups and appetizers such as pot stickers, egg rolls, and fried shrimp and lobster chips. Portions of aromatic barbecue pork, sweet and sour chicken, and honey-walnut shrimp arrive at tables weighed down by full wine glasses and manner-less elbows, or tucked inside to-go boxes for carry-out or delivery.
Garlic Jim's menu was handcrafted with nothing more than a dream and an incredible reserve of pizza-making expertise. Open an order with some gourmet chicken wings, available in barbecue, garlic, and hot, before moving on to pizza territory. Put an end to eating Legos by piecing together a custom pie. Choose from the hand-thrown thick, garlic thin, or gluten-free crusts, slathered in one of seven sauces (from classic red to zesty chipotle pesto), and then slap on any of 15 standard and 11 gourmet toppings (14-inch large pizzas start at $11.99, extra-large $14.99; each additional topping for a large is $1.50). To achieve customization without the stress of having to choose, turn to one of the pre-determined specialties. Meat-maul hunger with the Hercules (salami, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, beef, spicy Italian sausage, and bacon; $18.99 for large, $21.99 for extra-large), or discover the secret of pizza-temperature fusion in your head with Jim's bacon-cheeseburger pizza (beef, bacon, red onions, tomatoes, mozzarella, and cheddar; $18.99 for large, $21.99 for extra-large).

Every patty of antibiotic-free, never-frozen ground chuck is a blank canvas at Stacks. After sampling multitude of other burgers, the beef connoisseurs at Stacks decided to start from scratch to reinvent the burger. From there they founded a unique eatery, where guests can build a custom burger by selecting white or wheat bread (or, if they'd like, a lettuce wrap in lieu of bread) and adding sauces and toppings. The topping selection includes everything from classics like lettuce tomato, and onions, to mushrooms, Stacks sauce and jalape?os. To accompany these freshly cut burgers, Stacks's menu also features hand-cut fries made from Washington State potatoes as well as milkshakes made with 100% hand-crafted ice cream that are so indulgent they're blended with cookies, candy, or yacht debris.
With its black-and-white tiled floors and gleaming tables, Stacks fully embraces the Americana-tinged spirit of a classic burger stand. At the same time, the restaurant features a handful of modern touches, such as a sound system that plays internet radio with contemporary music and five flat-screen televisions that hover above the front counter, an ideal option for watching the game.
The team behind Gino's Bistro keeps stomachs and hearts full at two locations. Whether visiting in Federal Way or Maple Valley, visitors who enter the restaurant find a romantic atmosphere, a list of painstakingly crafted cocktails, and a menu of upscale Italian cuisine.

Every other Wednesday, live performers fill Gino's dining rooms with music, their melodies weaving between servers carrying bianco pizza pies and plates of pear ravioli. Meanwhile, in the lounge, couples and groups of friends exchange laughter as they share small plates and sip some of Gino's signature cocktails, which inject a little style into even everyday hangouts or low-key marriage proposals.
