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.
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.
Though passed down through several generations, the family recipes that serve as the basis of Thai Chefs Restaurant’s menu retain the delicate balance of sweetness and spice that characterizes Thai cuisine. Other influences that span Southeast Asia also show up across the menu, whether in colorful curries or stir-fried noodle and rice dishes that blend vegetables with your choice of chicken, beef, pork, or shrimp. When they aren’t dousing short ribs in their house-made barbecue sauce, the restaurant’s chefs craft vegetarian entrees around strips of silky tofu or marinated animal crackers.
The casual dining room seemingly draws its inspiration from the profusion of steamy curries on its tables. Swathes of pale yellow and bright red enshroud the walls, which play host to stenciled artworks depicting tropical-island motifs. Helical sculptures dangle from the ceiling’s tiles, turning in the breeze that passes through the restaurant every time the door opens or the dragon napping in the air ducts sneezes.
The first pie Nick-N-Willy's Pizza's chefs ever baked came out of an oven in Boulder, Colorado, but its menu travels the globe as the franchise has traveled around the United States. Classic Italian combinations abound, of course, but there's also the Greek-influenced, feta-topped Aegean pizza, the Canadian Chicken Club, and even a barbecue chicken variety. The fresh, creative combinations can also be freshly made and ready for home ovens via a take-and-bake option.
Authentically prepared in true Philly fashion, the cheesesteaks at Downtown Philly Cheese Steaks smother 100% beefsteak with melted cheese, tomato, onions, and lettuce. The Downtown Philly menu offers much more though, with tasty fare ranging from 100% sirloin char-broiled burgers to gourmet pizzas, Stromboli, and more than 10 varieties of salads. The menu also displays 12 styles of hoagies and grinders including the genoa salami hoagie and the chicken cordon bleu hoagie.
