With 30 years of experience in the food industry, the owner of Prime Dip has always had a passion for food. This love comes through in hearty handheld creations such as the roast-beef dip sandwich overflowing with certified Angus beef and au jus, and the hot pastrami sandwich that comes topped with the restaurant’s housemade Booyah sweet hot relish. The drive-thru joint churns out other breakfast and lunch edibles including fresh salads, stuffed baked potatoes, and meatballs dressed in assorted sauces, cheeses, and toppings. The staff delivers to local businesses, and catering services are also available.
The chefs at Sushi Zen Bistro aim to whisk taste buds on a trans-Pacific trip, crafting Japanese cuisine using fresh fish and preparation techniques straight from Japan. Drawing from a vast menu, they accompany their cut rolls, hand rolls, and specialty sushi rolls with lunch and dinner entrees, including grilled Atlantic salmon and beef teriyaki. These kitchen gurus extend their culinary skills beyond the Asian variety, also preparing North American fare such as burgers, pizzas, tacos, and quesadillas.
Tapping into expertise accumulated during 20 years in business, cooks at Greenhouse Cafe craft made-from-scratch sauces for sandwiches, pastas, and salads. They pull turkey breast and slices of french bread from a grill, covering the whole thing with tomato, avocado, provolone, and a housemade italian dressing. Fettuccini, linguini, penne, or angel-hair noodles are covered in Cajun seasonings, alfredo sauce, and shrimp like a bad public speaker at a culinary school.
The Mt. Baldy Lodge has stood beneath the shadow of Old Baldy Mountain for generations, drawing visitors with its snug wood cabins, recreational facilities, and rustic steak house. A frosty blanket of snow covers the surrounding pines and hiking trails, but inside the restaurant’s lively dining room, there are a roaring fireplace and plates of sizzling steaks, juicy burgers, and freshly baked cinnamon rolls. Taxidermal elk and buffalo heads speckle the handsome wood walls and keep score for those playing pool. The restaurant hosts special events throughout the month, including karaoke and live performances from a variety of musicians, including local piano players.
