CiCi’s Pizza combines the variety of a family-friendly buffet with the thrill of bottomless pizza. Each pie is crafted with dough made from scratch daily and then slathered with homemade marinara and showered with toppings ranging from traditional pepperoni and Italian-style sausage to creative combinations including buffalo chicken and mac 'n' cheese, resulting in more than 28 signature pizzas. The buffet is stocked with a plethora of fresh pastas, such as cavatappi noodles with classic marinara or alfredo sauce, as well as fully customizable signature salads. After they've feasted on savory options, diners can revisit the buffet for dessert including freshly baked brownies, slices of apple pizza, and cinnamon rolls drizzled with icing—or they can eat dessert first, thereby tearing an irreparable hole in the space-time continuum.

Dakota Cafe and Catering Company—garnering a silver culinary award for Best Café from Tucson Lifestyle in 2011—whips up an eclectic spread of classic American eats with a Southwestern twist, most of which can be modified to meet a gluten-free diet. Diners can send tongues on culinary voyages beginning with 6-inch andouille sausage bolstered with jalapeño bacon on a glutenless crust seasoned with rosemary and parmesan, or lump-meat crab cakes splashed with lemon aioli. Wound-up jaws tear through bold entrees such as white-chicken enchiladas, shredded meat, green chilies, and tomatoes kept baking while tucked under a dual-layer duvet of tortilla and melted cheese. Pans sear a crisp skin on the wasabi-crusted fillet of wild salmon to pair with a sake-citrus beurre blanc, and hands delicately fold refreshing lobster tacos around care packages of lime rice, black-bean salsa, and cool guacamole. Dakota rounds out its flavorful dinner menu with an expansive wine list that includes domestic whites from Oregon and California as well as imported reds that still smell of freshly stamped passports.

Though the name BurgerRito sounds like a mispronunciation or perhaps indecision, it's actually an amalgam of burger and burrito. To create its signature offering, the staff wraps a burger in a tortilla, laden with cheese. The food truck adds zest to most of its menu items with their That Damm Cajan Sauce, which smothers turkey sandwiches, grilled cheese, and even salads. In tandem with the sauce, customers can request their dishes be smothered with New Mexico Hatch chili, such as the Nacho-Daddy with the green chili poured atop a bowl of Doritos. For a mix of classic American fare and mexican food, customers can order the eight-pound burgerrito: a cheeseburger wrapped up in a burrito. As an added challenge, if a customer can consumer the entire burgerrito—two 14-inch flour tortillas, 3 scoops of refried beans, and 5 quarter pound hamburger patties—the burgerrito is free.

The scents of baked desserts and warm brews waft through the interior of Something Sweet, emanating from the kitchen's oven, which churns out everything from brownies to cheesecakes to the aptly named "Oh My God, You've Got to be Kidding" éclair. These confections pair with a cast of specialty beverages including 20 hot teas and sodas imported direct from the carbonated mountain springs of Italy. The shop also whips up light café fare including soups, salads, sandwiches, and melts.
But Something Sweet isn't just a place to eat and invent geometry theorems. The staff invites patrons to stick around and play board games, read, or participate in events such as book exchanges. They also foster good-spirited competition with the Sugar OD Challenge, which invites participants to devour a mountain of brownies, cheesecake, and ice cream in hopes of winning immortality on the eatery's wall of fame.
