The maritime chefs at Crab King of Augusta populate their savory menu with fresh seafood and a celebrated garlic dipping sauce. Start off with 1- or 2-pounds of shrimp bathed in steam and seasoning blends, recalling a jacuzzi party hosted by Mrs. Dash. Toothsome morsels of bacon-wrapped scallops and fried oysters infiltrate muzzles after increasing their allure with a bath in Crab King's signature garlic dipping sauce. Tea and soft drinks add refreshment throughout the meal, while a pair or quartet of Sara Lee strawberry shortcake cups provides a better finale than eating a The Cosby Show season eight boxed set.
Domino's recently reformulated its pizza recipe, which puts the buyer in command of a plentitude of pie-personalizing possibilities. Test the sturdiness of a hand-tossed thin crust with mounds of hearty marinara, ham, chicken, green peppers, black olives, and spinach, or fill a deep-dish foundation with alfredo sauce, bacon, onions, jalapeños, fresh mushrooms, and banana peppers. While delicious design options stretch into infinity like a taffy pull in a black hole, the eatery's specialty pizzas make choosing more manageable. Peruse pies like the MeatZZa Feast, which is piled high with pepperoni, ham, italian sausage, beef, and extra mozzarella, and the Pacific Veggie, a flashy West Coast–concoction of roasted red peppers, spinach, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, black olives, feta, mozzarella, and provolone.

After finishing their masterpieces, customers can decamp to seating set between the shop's neon-lime walls to eat away, read over the detailed nutritional information of their favorite flavors, and build replicas of the Sydney Opera House out of discarded spoons.
Jasmin Bradley knew that her mother, Maria, had a longtime dream of owning her own restaurant. So, after serving in the US military for seven years, Jasmin opened Maria's Island Restaurant in her honor. In the restaurant's kitchen, Maria prepares dishes that she remembers from her childhood in the Dominican Republic: tender, meaty oxtail, rich dominican beef stew, and mofongo—a dish of garlicky mashed plantains and pork or shrimp—are a few specialties. After relishing the savory courses, diners can end meals on a sweet note with spoonfuls of flan or sips of morir soñando—a sweet beverage made with milk and orange juice.
At Top Notch Express Car Wash, customers can choose their preferred degree of cleaning control. Each of the four locations abides by a flex system, enabling owners to drive by for a full- or express-service scrubbing. Express washes cleanse and jet-dry exteriors before patrons vacuum the interiors themselves, whereas full-service washes employ the staff to vacuum, clean windows, and oversee the application of add-ons such as wax and tire shine. Frequent clients can even sign up for a monthly unlimited wash plan, a prudent asset for autos that are regularly sullied by off-road excursions or ice-cream-truck demolition derbies.
