Borriello Brothers Pizza didn't just copy New York-style pizza?they imported it. Owned by New York natives, the pizza joint pays tribute to the city's staple, craftting their pizzas with attention to detail. Their sauce comes from California tomatoes, they only use 100% real whole milk mozzarella cheese, and they layer their pizzas with sausage made from prime cuts of pork. The result is a pie that grew out of original New York recipes, just as the city's skyscrapers sprout from cracks in the sidewalks. In addition to traditional NY-style pizzas, they serve Sicilian crust pizzas, and feature signature pies with toppings such as Genoa salami, sliced steak, and baked ziti. The menu also incorporates calzones, pastas, and other Italian specialties.
Sandy’s Restaurant dishes out Southwestern and classic-American comfort food in a cozy dining room made all the more inviting by its knotted-wood walls. Housemade white and wheat toast flanks six-egg omelets or hugs french-dip and egg-salad sandwiches. Sandy’s serves breakfast all day, offering dishes such as pancakes and the Hasty Burrito, the latter of which includes a mixture of sausage, chili, and cheese that should be eaten at the speed of light. The menu also includes chicken-fried steak and housemade red and green chili, all served amid wagon wheels, wooden signs carved with sassy slogans, and other rustic decorations.
Fried and specially seasoned, hand-breaded and tossed in Frank's sauce, or doused in made-from-scratch cream gravy—if there's a way to make chicken, The Mason Jar's chefs have mastered it. That mastery extends to other staples of American comfort food, including catfish fried in a crispy cornmeal coating, corned beef and sauerkraut sandwiched between slices of pumpernickel rye, and buttermilk-crusted fruit cobblers for dessert. Modeled after a Colorado lodge, The Mason Jar's dining room complements its dishes with wood paneling and exposed brick, a cozy fireplace, and chandeliers made with deer antlers donated by Bambi.
1950s ephemera decorate Gunther Toody's eight Colorado locations, lending an extra boost of Americana to plates of classic diner food such as burgers and meatloaf. The menu even draws its inspiration from American pop culture of yore, with Elvis fries, burgers named for Howdy Doody, and Big Bopper breakfasts served on platters of chantilly lace. Classic ice-cream treats including shakes, malteds, and black cows help lead each meal to a suitably sweet conclusion.
The chefs of Taste of India 2 began their careers in Northern India, an area supplies the inspiration for their menu of authentic Indian cuisine.

A laid-back, beachy vibe flows through BooDad's Beach House Grill; oftentimes, there's even sand on the floor from an outdoor beach with hammocks and a volleyball court. In the kitchen, cooks prepare Cajun-inspired dishes such as bacon-wrapped buffalo shrimp and New Orleans–style muffuletta sandwiches with Genoa salami, ham, and chopped olive salad. Diners can wash it all back with beers or mixed drinks served in glasses or 64-ounce fishbowls.
