Whistle Clean Car Wash maintains sparkling auto interiors and exteriors with a fusion of eco-friendly services and customer-coddling care. Buff mobile machines until they're as radiant as a burning snowman with your choice of two of four express detail services. Automotive aestheticians will focus on the reflectivity of your car's exoskeleton with an express waxing that can last for three months, clean chocolate-bunny globs from Easters past off seats or doorjambs with an express seat or express vinyl treatment, or revive worn carpets with a shampoo-vacuum duo express carpet service. Habitual off-roaders or drivers who attempt to fit as many pizzas into their car as possible will benefit from the complete detail option. This roof-to-wheel interior-and-exterior scrubbing by Whistle Clean Car Wash's expert staff includes a carpet conditioning, a polish wax, window defogging, a wipe down of all your vinyl's incriminating fingerprints, and a 30-day unlimited basic exterior wash pass to keep your ride in mint gum-free condition. For a one-time celebration of cleanliness, opt for a full-service Whistle Clean Supreme wash to rid exteriors of excessive soil, interiors of burrito wrappers, and rims of their goblin-attracting murk.
Mountainview Tire Factory began in 1984 as a network of independent tire dealers who teamed up to find better prices for their customers. Today, they supply a chain of independently owned locations across the Western U.S. with tires from brands such as Goodyear, Kelly, and Dunlop. At each location, ASE-certified technicians specialize in the installation of both tires and wheels, and outfit every tire purchase with a warranty that includes free flat repairs for the lifespan of the tire, free rotation, and an inspection. They also perform a wide slate of maintenance services—such as oil changes, brake servicing, and electrical work—to ensure cars are healthy enough to make the most of their new rubber running shoes.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a can of vegetables, a bag of sliced bread, or a box of instant cake mix in The Backporch Cafe kitchen. The chefs are wary of the premade foods, bottled sauces, and magic beans found in grocery stores, preferring to whip up all their dishes from scratch. So they bake fresh apple pies, bran raisin muffins, and buttermilk biscuits each morning, along with from-scratch loaves of rye, wheat, and cheddar sourdough bread. As a yawning breakfast crowd begins to wander in, the chefs turn their attention to three-egg omelets, chorizo burritos, and lightly grilled french toast. Come lunchtime, they’ll layer housemade bread with house-smoked chicken, turkey, and ham before plating the sandwiches alongside handfuls of fries and scoops of potato salad.
Complementing all of this homestyle cooking is a beverage list that includes coffee, juice, bloody marys, screwdrivers, and Manmosas—orange juice mixed with Easy Street wheat beer from the nearby Odell Brewing Company. When the weather's nice, diners can lounge beneath magenta umbrellas on the patio.
Nominated for ABC 7's Best Ice Cream Shop five years in a row, Gelazzi whips up 34 flavors of gelato fresh every morning, using fresh fruits and dry ingredients carefully culled and imported from Italy. Introduce your flavor receptacles to caramel from Avellino, rich chocolate from Torino, or lemons from Aversa, available by the scoop ($3.75) or in a belgian-waffle bowl ($6.99). Gelazzi's fluffy frozen treats are also made using 2% fresh milk rather than cream, making it less fattening and giving the unique flavors room to dance in your mouth.
At Richie's Express Carwash, cars roll through an automated, brush-free tunnel where a cutting-edge computer system hones in on each vehicle's dirtiest spots. It cleanses exteriors with soft cloths and a secret eight-ingredient solution, and then blasts away suds with high-pressure hoses. Patrons can build on this express package with luxurious extras such as underbody rust inhibitors, applications of Richie's Wheel Brite, and triple-coat protectants. At the end of each session—which takes about four minutes—cars travel through a drying tunnel whimsically decorated with stuffed animals. There, a system of 15 high-velocity fans brings exteriors to a spot-free shine. Drivers can blow raspberries at their newly cleaned rides from the viewing station before sprucing up interiors at complimentary self-serve vacuum stations.
A windshield chip can turn into a crack, and a crack can cause glass to shatter. The experienced, insured technicians at Crack Master Auto Glass keep that from happening with repairs that incorporate high quality resin. Customers can also opt for services such as glass replacement or VIN etching that protects against theft. As an added assurance, the company backs all of their work with a lifetime warranty.
