Pepperoni's dishes out a bevy of oven-baked delights using authentic recipes and fresh, hand-spun dough. Customers can practice jousting skills with a serving of hand-rolled breadsticks ($3.99) or challenge jaws with a mozzarella-, ricotta-, and parmesan-cheese-stuffed calzone ($6.99), jam-packed with a customizable confection of traditional and gourmet toppings ($1.00 each). For duos or larger groups, Pepperoni's hand-tossed cheese pizza comes in four hunger-sating sizes, from 8 inches ($5.99) to 18 inches ($13.99), and enables clientele to personalize their steaming hot pie with a smattering of toppings, including pepperoni, beef, green olives, spinach, anchovies, and more. Although predominately fixated on dough-and-cheese creations, Pepperoni's crisp salads and buffalo wings enable guests to gobble up mixed greens and keep wandering bison from ruining airplane flight patterns and smashing into windows.
The talented chefs at Pomodoro Cafe gain palate popularity with an awesomely aromatic menu of lunch and dinner entrees that wins over mouths with classic Italian flavors. Practice taste-bud calisthenics with the cioppino appetizer ($8.95), a maritime sampling of salmon, calamari, clams, mussels, and scallops simmering in lobster broth. The Siciliana gourmet pizza ($8.95 for a 10”) fills vacant tummy space better than a futon slathered in buffalo sauce, hoisting a hefty portion of ham, pepperoni, and sausage on a crispy crust. Graze molars against the lightly breaded eggplant parmigiana served with penne pasta ($11.95), or match mandibles against the capellini casa nostra with shrimp, angel-hair pasta, and caramelized onions ($14.75). A variety of hot pressed sandwiches quells midday hunger pangs ($7.10–$8.25), and the New York–style cheesecake topped with strawberry or chocolate sauce ($5.95) sates sweet teeth before they relocate to the mouths of department-store mannequins.

Joe’s Place infuses its steakhouse fare with local flair, peppers its menu with locally produced vegetables and tempeh, and adorns its walls with local artists’ work. Award-winning soups and a verdant salad bar presage flavorful steaks, such as the 10-ounce sirloin stuffed with boursin cheese, and other gourmet meats such as mesquite pork, shrimp, and mahi-mahi. Sandwiches range from burgers with patties shaped from local beef to the tempeh reuben. Without drizzling steaks with melted gelato, the kitchen staff pays homage to the splendor of Italian cuisine by way of diverse pastas such as the house ziti, baked to a golden brown. A weekly rotation of specials guarantees a festive theme every night, such as Friday devoted to inventive chef creations and family-night Wednesday, on which kids eat free and menus shout “Do your homework!” when opened.
The Bob of Jonesville Bar and Grille loves a man named Bob.

Bob Marley’s One Love Nachos sate appetites alongside Bob Hope's Sides, which include housemade chips—a smash hit on their last USO tour. The bartenders pour an array of specialty martinis, bombs, and beers to fuel the merrymaking during special events throughout the week, such as karaoke and live music.

Those who prefer their meals in handheld form can opt for a baked sandwich, such as the sausage and sautéed pepper panini ($9.95), while more carnivorous appetites can set their sights on the veal Milanese, a tender fillet of veal donning a bread-crumb frock and dainty, yet belly-warming lemon-butter scarf ($18.95).
