Though they're far from the mystic castles of Philadelphia, the sandwich chefs at Chucktown Philly Cheesesteak pride themselves on their ability to make an authentic cheesesteak. They first stack thinly sliced grilled steak or chicken between two halves of a crisp hoagie slathered with melted cheese. They then customize each sandwich with the guest's choice of toppings, including traditional mushrooms and peppers, or creative additions such as salsa. Along with such experimental cheesesteaks, they also build BLT, tuna, and chicken-parmesan sub sandwiches.
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.
Originally opened as the Top Hat Drive-In in 1953, Sonic has grown into a burger-franchise mecca that today operates out of 3,500 locations across the country, making it the nation’s largest chain of drive-in restaurants.

Sonic’s numerous awards include a 2011 Zagat survey ranking it among the top five fast-food restaurants in three categories: Best Value Menu, Best Milk Shake, and Best Drive-Thru. The benevolent eatery also has donated more than $2 million to public schools throughout the country through their program Limeades for Learning, which helps to fund educational projects and retirement plans for classroom guinea pigs.
Flavorful sauces, fresh vegetables, and proteins, such as lobster and roast duck: these are the building blocks behind Mongo Wok N Grill's menu of Chinese and Thai favorites. Cooks simmer creamy curries, sauté pans of fried rice, and prepare specialties such as the Seafood Bird Nest–a medley of scallops, shrimp, and squid served in a crisp nest of fried noodles.
Brazilian Market touts hundreds of imported Brazilian culinary staples. Behind the meat counter, butchers slice picanha, or top sirloin, a cut popular in Brazilian rodìzio-style restaurants, and wrap up lombo recheado, pork stuffed with herbs and cheese.

Customers can also shop for sundries such as Havaianas flip-flops and Brazilian hair products.
