For more than 30 years, Quiznos has toasted its submarine sandwiches to bring out the hidden flavors found in butcher-quality meats, cheese, and artisan breads. Its classic and signature subs take on a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles ranging from the prime rib mushroom and swiss to the classic italian donning black olives, mozzarella, red-wine vinaigrette, and plentiful sliced meats. Those closely monitoring their waistlines can take unabashed bites of sandwiches that have fewer than 500 calories, such as the honey-bourbon chicken sub. Quiznos' wraps and wide variety of salads offer slimmer versions of sub fare and flaunt supreme aerodynamics when shot out of T-shirt cannons and into mouths. A selection of Flatbreads, soups, and salads round out Quiznos' varied menu.

The only thing to distract diners from a sports the game at The Wing Factory La Porte—broadcasted on four projectors and a flatscreen in every booth—is the pool table. And the video games. And poker on Monday and Wednesday nights. And of course, the sauce-drenched wings. 22 flavors grace the menu, from mild lemon pepper to creamy parmesan and smoking barbecue. For the truly adventurous, the ultra spicy Ground Zero causes one to belch cartoon flames, and thus requires signing a waver. Though the signature house dish will always be wings, guests can order several other pub grub staples, such as burgers, a buffalo chicken sandwich, and chicken-fried steak.

The meaty menu at Rooster's Steak House entices eaters with barbecued, fried, and baked comfort fare. The Rooster special mingles morsels of steak or chicken with onions and sweet peppers ($12.95), and the chicken-fried chicken sandwich ($6.95) confounds diners wondering which of the chickens came first. Round up a barbecue combo—which transports up to three selections of chicken, sausage, brisket, or ribs ($7.95–$11.95) from plate to palate—or swim against barbecued currents with the baked tilapia, breaded in tortilla chips and spritzed with lime ($8.95). A fleet of steaks rounds out the menu, all cut daily with accurately thrown ninja stars, and today's Groupon also grants table tenants the option of feasting upon the succulence of the weekly specials.

The staff at Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt rejects the oft-touted claim that Americans don?t care about nutrition. The problem, they say, has more to do with selection than anything else; most low-calorie sweets don?t hold a candle to a fudge brownie or a warm slice of apple pie. They kept this in mind when crafting their frozen-yogurt recipes, working tireless to develop a healthy?and equally delicious?alternative to the dessert status quo by turning to decadent confections and just-picked fruits for inspiration.

Their experiments thus far have yielded more than 60 frozen yogurt flavors, which take turns pumping through the self-serve machines that line their colorful shop?s wall. Before taking a seat in a bright orange chair, guests fill their dishes with cool, low-fat swirls of chocolate cheesecake, strawberry banana, and a classic tart that bites as pleasantly as a teething kitten. Juicy pears, crunchy granola, and gooey chocolate sauce headline a smorgasbord of at least 30 toppings ready to scooped or poured into cups before their final weigh-in.

If the “Tortoise and the Hare” taught us anything, it’s that slow and steady wins the race. And at Tony's Barbecue & Steak House, slow and steady cooking has ordinary dinners beat with pork ribs and brisket that spend a good 12 hours sizzling over South Texas hickory. The barbecue meals are joined by hearty steaks, smoked ham and turkey plates, and quail dinners. Many of the menu items are cooked with one of founder Antonio Ruiz's secret recipes for dirty rice, barbecue sauce, and pork and brisket rubs. Before opening the first Tony’s Barbecue in Baytown, Ruiz spent 15 years developing his craft at a local barbecue restaurant in Houston.
