My Buddies Pizza celebrates 20 years of dishing up the hand-tossed pizzas, calzones, and sandwiches on its extensive menu, served in a family eatery furnished with blinking arcade games. Pepper the cheesy base of an extra-large pie with two toppings, choosing from a veritable cornucopia of fresh ingredients, including chorizo, candied pecans, and refried beans. Iceberg verdures shroud fresh bushels of cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and pepperoncinis within large salads, and diners irrigate arid palates with frosty chalices of Coke, Dr. Pepper, or Sprite. Afterward, patrons can admire the eatery’s wall-mounted TVs or take their 20 tokens to the spacious game room in pursuit of My Buddies’ prizes and 8-bit contenders.
The folks at Farmer Boys Food believe that "great food comes from local farms and hard work." Firmly rooted in the belief that everyone should know exactly where the food on their table came from, they source ingredients straight from the farm to craft big beefy burgers or hand-battered fish and chips. Chefs prepare hearty breakfast burritos lined with housemade salsa, and scoop fresh strawberries into hand-spun milkshakes to make the berries dizzy so they taste better.
The talented chefs at Grapes & Tomatoes prepare exquisite and complex pizzas, entrees, and nightly specials, pairing them with a selection of 35 wines. Hungering mouths bite into the succulent poached pear pizza ($15), whose eponymous fruit delivers soft flavors and sassy backtalk alongside gorgonzola, prosciutto, caramelized onions, arugula, and walnuts. A salad topped with seared watermelon backed up by a trio of feta cheese, fresh basil, and balsamic vinegar ($7) satisfies taste buds, and steamed black mussels ($13) swim in garlic white-wine nectar. As a shiny black piano serenades guests in the dining room, glasses of California wines ($5+) placate palates with whispers of grapes and tales of cowboys who conquered their frontiers.
