With swinging wood saloon doors, hanging lamps made from cowboy hats, and local ranchers' brands seared into each tabletop, Cowboys' Bar-B-Q & Steak Co.'s three locations make visitors feel as though they've just stumbled in from the Texas lowlands. Many of founder Jim McCoin's self-devised recipes come from years of careful cooking while on the professional barbecue-competition circuit, which regularly led his team "Big Daddy Q" to victory. Wings strut across plates dressed in up to 20 sauce flavors, compelling tongues to quench thirst with 10 draft beers or Western-themed margaritas. Beverages are served in mason jars, carried past decorations such as photographs representing local ranching families. For outside eaters, Cowboys' supplies its hearty grilled fare through take-out and catering each day of the week.

Every day, Vittorio's Pizzeria & Restaurant's proficient pie twirlers construct pizzas, hot sandwiches, and Italian specialties from scratch. The restaurant's modern, mostly horse-and-buggy-free interior harbors a kitchen from which emerge calzones and strombolis overflowing with molten cheese. The culinary team hand tosses the fresh dough that forms the foundation of each pizza, including nine specialty pies, in addition to preparing spaghetti and chicken parmigiana swimming in pools of marinara. The staff also delivers bottled beer and pours glasses of imported wine, cooling tongues better than the unity of a flagpole, a midwestern December, and a school principal's mandate to discipline his hecklers.
