Sonic boasts a hunger-obliterating menu of burgers, coneys, shakes, and more—all delivered straight to your road vessel by graceful roller-skating carhops. Settle burger-craving stomachs with a supersonic cheeseburger ($4.64), or craft a creative meal out of sides such as chili-cheese tots ($2.69), the cheesy jalapeño poppers ($3.23), and onion rings ($2.50/large), which, like engagement rings, symbolize love and taste better when dipped in ketchup. If crumb-covered palates need a cleansing, swallow a Sonic signature limeade ($1.50/medium) or a slush ($1.50/medium) in any combo of classic flavors, such as cherry, grape, watermelon, or orange. Once eaters have ordered, the all-American feast will arrive balanced atop the head of a roller-butler. Customers are welcome to feast right there in their cars or savor their selections on Sonic's outdoor patio.

The menu at Chicora Alley fuses the sweet, tangy flavors of the Caribbean with the smoky, savory flavors of the South, resulting in a collage of tropical plates and down-home favorites. The vibrant flavors of the menu encourage guests to mix and match cuisines—start with an appetizer, then dig into one of mom's cream cheese chicken enchiladas or a black Angus shredded brisket taco, with 7 different salsas to choose from. On weekends, Chicora Alley offers a Sunday brunch with a variety of items, such as huevoes rancheros, breakfast burritos, and country breakfast.

The kitchen dishes out classics such as jerk chicken with fried plantains, but also cooks up unique creations. The shrimp burrito, for example, wraps eggplant, plantains, spinach, goat cheese, and jerk shrimp in a massive tortilla. Even the sauces constitute intriguing combinations, boasting names like ketchupeno and honey butter, a sweet spread that has to be painstakingly churned from honeybee milk. The restaurant's penchant for unexpected pairings even affects the live entertainment. On any given night, performances by bands range from Caribbean reggae to Southern jazz to Bluegrass. During the warmer months, patrons can enjoy the music and great food in the outdoor seating area complete with firepit, where games of cornhole or ring toss can be played. For younger guests, there is a kids play area with kids tables.

Four Seasons Restaurant and Catering slings flavorful Chinese food for any occasion, from low-key family meals set to one of the eatery's live musical performances, to a romantic feast before a high-school prom. In the kitchen, chefs sear up juicy rib eye and new york strip steaks in hot woks and craft crunchy housemade egg rolls as starters. After firing up their hibachis, they skillfully roast chicken, shrimp, and steak over the charcoal grills to pair with fried rice and egg-drop soup. They can also prepare meals free from gluten, carbs, or centuries-old curses for guests with dietary restrictions.

Established in 2009, Mojo’s Famous Burgers mingles classic American eats with rockabilly music and décor inspired by tattoo art at two locations. The menu harkens to '50s diner fare with hand-cut onion rings, old-fashioned milk shakes, and build-your-own burgers with two patty sizes. A selection of specialty burgers crowns premium aged beef with toppings inspired by regional flavors—Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Philly, or Hawaiian style—and the chef’s favorite natural disaster. The eatery’s wall of fame commemorates diners who chowed through a food challenge featuring quadruple cheeseburgers or loaded foot-long hot dogs.

The friendly treatsmiths at blueberryfrog swirl and serve frozen creations made exclusively from organic ingredients free from artificial sweeteners. The small plain yogurt ($2.50) offers 106 calories of healthy sweet-seeking, but a luxuriously large flavored cup ($5.50) draws out desserts to decadent lengths. Patrons can add up to three toppings ($1.45), burying taste buds under an edible avalanche of fresh kiwi, blueberries, chocolate chips, granola, and other tasty accessories. Often locally grown, the fresh-fruit trimmings eschew flash-freezing and pasteurization processes to preserve their ability to dance the tarantella across tongues. In addition to being a rich and nutritious treat, the live probiotic cultures in yogurt can help aid digestion and simultaneously protect against lactose-intolerant-cephalopod bullying.

Fu of Kyoto's chefs speedily serve up a delectable roster of traditional sushi rolls and Japanese entrees. Tongues can practice for the main meal by first unwrapping pork or vegetable dumplings ($3.15) and ponder why the eight-piece Rainbow roll's tuna, salmon, and cucumber ($4.39) haven't been added to the visible-color spectrum. Teriyaki-infused bites of chicken ($4.95) or eel ($6.85) caper through fried rice in one of Fu's rice bowls, and the hibachi-grilled fillet steak and jumbo shrimp ($8.99) spurn the centuries-old feud between their families by courting in a thicket of vegetables.
