Muscle Maker Grill grew out of a small smoothie shop, where owner Rod Silva prepared health-conscious alternatives to fast food. The restaurant has since expanded with a menu tailored to accommodate diners with vegetarian, carb-free, and gluten-free diets. The crew prides themselves in creating healthy versions of popular foods, and continues to serve the shop?s original protein shakes with favorites such as chocolate peanut butter and strawberry banana. Additionally, Muscle Maker Grill displays the calorie count for each dish on the menu.
The chef at Zaika Barbeque & Grill pulls 14 years of experience out of his hat as he prepares traditional Pakistani dishes cooked- and spiced-to-order with halal ingredients. As he barbecues chicken, lamb, and beef, he locks spices and flavors into kebabs, whereas his tandoor oven slowly lets juicy chicken tikka stew and gather up as much flavor as it can. Waiters guide diners through the wide selection of entrees, which includes vegetarian curries and rice dishes. A petite menu of Pakistani desserts coddles sweet teeth after dinner, assuaging their ever-present, irrational fear of the tooth fairy.
George's Roasters & Ribs is the sister restaurant of neighboring Hoagie Haven, so it's no surprise that the casual eatery is as well-known for its buffalo chicken cheesesteaks as its namesake roasted chickens and fall-off-the-bone barbecue pork spare ribs. Besides these tasty mainstays, the menu boasts a vast array of hearty casual eats.?
Casual offerings include chicken wings, meatball hoagies, burgers, and gyros. Those who prefer eating with a fork and knife have plenty of options to choose from as the restaurant also serves up various pastas, including eggplant parmigiana with spaghetti.
Equipped with recipes from seasoned barbecuing team Jacked Up BBQ, the cooks at Meat BBQ Company serve up platters of pulled pork, succulent racks of ribs, and smoky beef brisket. The eatery's dry-rubbed meats smoke over hickory wood for five or more hours before cooks add a zesty barbecue sauce glaze.
Inside the homey neighborhood gathering place, physical competitions such as football light up TV screens as barkeeps pour on-tap domestic, international, and craft favorites. In the kitchen, multitasking chefs sauté shrimp, slow-smoke barbecue St. Louis ribs, and grill bratwursts and new york strips. The upscale grill fare mixes with comfort food classics, such as meatloaf in mushroom gravy, five-cheese paninis, and juicy burgers crowned with premium toppings. Some nights, guests perform their own renditions of classic tunes during karaoke.
