Since 1984, Champps Americana's kitchen has sizzled with made-from-scratch dishes, satiating sports fans and families with a comfortable atmosphere. Amid sunlit dining rooms, diners seated at wooden tabletops can root for their favorite pixels on flat-screen TVs broadcasting live sports. In the kitchen, chefs prepare pastas with grilled chicken and roasted artichokes, pile buns with barbecued pulled pork and spicy buffalo chicken, and fill soft taco shells with grilled steak. Behind the bar, bartenders whip up specialty cocktails and margaritas and fill goblets with wine and local craft beers on tap.
With a menu spanning omelets to half-pound sirloin burgers, Yours Truly serves up American classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Early-morning favorites such as the greek omelette ($7.60), with roasted red peppers, feta cheese, olives, and spinach, helped the eatery earn the title of 2010 best breakfast from WhereTheLocalsEat.com. The chef stacks the monte cristo ($8.50) with layers of sweet french toast with savory ham, turkey and swiss cheese. A Napa spinach salad topped with grapes, walnuts, strawberries, dried cranberries, and gorgonzola ($7.50) keeps meals as light at a globetrotting eccentric's hot air balloon, and baked mac 'n' cheese ($6.25) or a reuben burger ($7.50) stuffs starving gullets.
More than four decades ago, Corey D. Konicki's grandparents signed the deed for their first restaurant, Angie's Pizza. Over the years, their descendants carried on their culinary tradition of kneading and embellishing pies with only the freshest ingredients — and today, at New Era Grill & Pizzeria, the philosophy and recipes live on. The eatery's menu encompasses the full gamut of Italian eats, but according to a reviewer for the Sun News the mac 'n' cheese reigns supreme. The reviewer applauds the dense, scrumptious pasta for its flavorful trio of cheeses and creamy noodles, which chefs even stuff into the house-made crust of mac 'n' cheese pizzas and into their own mouths. Diners reap the fruits of the chefs' ingenuity in the softly lit dining room, surrounded by exposed brick, cozy booths and a TV.:m]]
The broilers at Harry's Steakhouse sear perfectly straight lines into all of the eatery's daily, fresh chops, prepped by the in-house butcher. And before these steaks are aged and prepared, they're chosen from cattle that have been fed with corn their whole lives, as opposed to those with a habit of binging on fast food during their teenage years. Specialty steaks include the crowd favorite, 22 ounce bone-in Ribeye. Steaks can also be finished with sautéed mushrooms or onions or a skewer of grilled shrimp.
Despite its name, Chris The Mad Greek's Cantina & Grill showcases more than just the flavors of Greek culinary culture. The menu features a range of hearty Greek and American dishes for breakfast and lunch. Stuffed Greek omelets and lamb and chicken gyros provide a taste of international spice, while half-pound burgers, Southern-style fried fish, and biscuits and gravy are packed with more familiar flavors. Mediterranean pastas, such as spaghetti marinara and chicken alfredo, are also available.
