To craft the signature Momma's Love sandwich, chefs begin with a freshly steamed hoagie bun. They layer on slices of roast beef, ham, hickory-smoked turkey, and muenster cheese before topping the tower off with spicy brown mustard. The chefs also extend their culinary expertise toward a variety of other hearty hot and cold sandwiches, as well as their specialty nachos—crispy Dorito chips showered in creamy pepper jack cheese.

Chefs grill quesadillas, roll burritos, and sizzle fajitas before customers' eyes, and they can easily convert each item on the menu into a vegetarian-friendly feast or a makeshift futon. As guests content themselves with mouthfuls of flavorful tacos, fresh salads, and cheesy scoops of nachos, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill's dedicated staff works hard behind the scenes to build strong community relationships through contributions to local charities and nonprofits.

Guthrie’s slathers its golden chicken fingers in a sauce invented by a 10-year-old. The youngster was Hud Guthrie, and he crafted his condiment in 1978 for a competition between the Guthrie children. The question to be settled: who could concoct the most delicious enhancement for the family restaurant’s chicken fingers?

More than 30 years later, Hud’s exact formula continues to drizzle Guthrie’s chicken throughout the South, complementing bucketfuls of golden fried chicken or plates heaped with fries, slaw, and texas toast. Kitchens also whip up lighter fare, such as grilled chicken sandwiches, which ride rivers of sweet tea toward stomach satisfaction. Afterward, desserts of fried pie sweeten repasts more effectively than cutlery whittled from candy canes.

When The Melting Pot originally opened in 1975 just outside Orlando, the location was cozy and quaint, but diners had only three options: swiss-cheese fondue, beef fondue, or chocolate fondue. However, as the locally owned and operated restaurant grew in popularity, so did its menu selection and atmosphere. Patrons can now expect six varieties of hot dipping cheese paired with salads, meats, and molten chocolate.

On a given night, guests can nosh on signature four-course meals, from cheese-fondue appetizers and various salads to steaks and seafood cooked in a choice of healthy broth or oil. Birthday revelers and couples can share decadent evenings at private tables, capping off meals with chocolate desserts that have defined The Melting Pot for decades.

Drawing inspiration from the more traditional Mexican cuisine and its European influences, the chefs at La Catrina Mexican Cantina create specialties that pair exotic meat choices under a layer of fine European cheeses. They fill tacos with marinated pork tossed with chunks of pineapple, shredded chicken in a drizzle of queso, or fish fillets fried in a Pacifico beer batter. Outside of street food classics, they also stuff chilies with marinated rice and beans and toss linguini in a light almond cream sauce and queso fresco.
