Ziebart-Rochester's car buffs continue a nearly 50-year tradition of maintenance and repair services that help defend autos against the elements. As clients enjoy free coffee and WiFi in the waiting area, detailing techs scour vehicle interiors and exteriors for unwanted smudges, debris, and backseat drivers. For protection against rust and other contaminants, the staff fortifies paint jobs with coats of Diamond Gloss paint protection and a signature rust-proofing process developed in 1959. Sheets of polyurethane mist from Rhino Linings spray-on bed liner tuck truck beds beneath a watertight security blanket. Offering an optional shuttle service for longer car treatments, the facility also helps shield drivers from the sun's flashlight with window-tinting sessions and bedecks rides with accessories, including remote starters.
Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.

The Tint Shop outfits vehicles and businesses with all their tinting needs using a majority 3M products, a trade that's earned the business accolades on the Democrat and Chronicle's Rochester?s Choice list for nine years in a row.

Solar-control films block up to 99% of the sun's rays?keeping upholstery from fading and bread from toasting?while specially designed safety and security films reinforce glass to protect it during harsh weather or burglaries.

The friendly family of ride-primpers at Evergreen Car Wash has been meticulously returning messy motor vehicles to long-lasting luminescence for more than 15 years. The Ultimate Wash slathers on two kinds of soap during a soft-cloth machine wash: one to clean and shine the exterior glass and chrome, and another to gently remove tough soil and pollutants from the paint. Tires and rims then get mechanically de-gunked and shined before an attendant polishes your car to a brilliant Technicolor with red, yellow, and blue wax. Your car's soft, tickly underbelly is then sprayed with rust flush to protect the tenderest cuts of auto meat. Finally, a clear-coat protectant will inhibit gunkification caused by salt, dust, dirt, and rain.
The mealtime maestros at Mario’s Italian Restaurant stiff-arm hunger with a robust menu of sophisticated repasts. Ease into the occasion with an antipasto such as Nonna's homemade meatball, a hand-rolled sphere of beef and pork ($8). Primed palates then welcome a platter of fettuccine alfredo, pancetta, and asparagus ($19) or a lightly breaded chicken parmigiano ($13). Patrons in a beefier frame of stomach should consider devouring a hand-selected steak such as the heartily marbled, 16-ounce Angus beef Delmonico ($25), gracefully grilled and dished up on a sizzling skillet to preserve cooking temperature. Mario’s Sunday brunch rewards visitors with treats ranging from made-to-order crepes and belgian waffles to eggs benedict, ricotta-stuffed shells, and a slew of pastries ($21.95 for adults, $12.95 for children). For those who don't believe in gluten, the restaurant cheerfully extends a gluten-free menu for inspection.
