The chefs at Nick's Pizza and Gelato hand toss each of the restaurant's Brooklyn-style pizzas, which crown a menu that includes pastas, paninis, and calzones. They also scoop out gelato for dessert or to help guests celebrate a special occasion, such as opening their own ice-cream parlor. This mix of hot and cold treats is available seven days a week, whether you'd like to measure a meat lover's pizza's meatiness in the shop or dine on homemade garlic bread and lasagna at home.
For more than 25 years, Sudie's has entertained taste receptors seven days a week with Southern home cooking for lunch and dinner. Both menus sprinkle themselves with individuality, but you'll mostly find succulent selections of golden-battered cuisine. Tantalize your watering chops by destroying starters such as the fried green tomatoes ($4.99) and Texas toothpicks, crispy fried slices of jalapeños and onions ($4.99). Once your pre-meal ordeal is complete, move on to Sudie's assortment of seafood, steakfood, and chickenfood. Make the world your waterway with Sudie's catfish connection, boasting an endless supply of all-you-can-eat catfish ($15–$16) served "Sudie's way," with hush puppies, coleslaw, pinto beans, and fries. If you can't eat all you can eat, try a hearty yet hopeful amount of catfish (two 5- to 7-ounce fillets with choice of two sides) in one of three styles: lemon pepper, broiled Cajun, or blackened ($12–$14, flavors vary by location). If hunger has hampered your decision-making skills, opt for the seafood platter ($19–$20), which boasts two catfish fillets, four oysters, four scallops, four fried shrimp, four boiled shrimp, four enthusiastic fist pumps, and one stuffed crab. Sudie's also serves salads, soups, chicken, steak, and the bashfully indecisive chicken-fried steak.
DoubleDave's Pizzaworks serves up an assortment of hearty, hand-tossed pizzas, Peproni rolls, stromboli, and more. Choose a pie from DoubleDave's selection of specialty pizzas ($19.99 for an 18", $15.99 for a 15", and $12.99 for a 12”)—the buffalo-chicken pizza outfits its surface area in mozzarella, chicken strips, wing sauce, and ranch dressing, while the duplicitous Dave's Fave offers carnivore-coaxing meatball and sausage or veggie-baiting tomato, garlic, and spinach variations on its olive oil, garlic, and oregano sauce base. Do-it-yourselfers are welcome to design their own pies ($10.99 for a 15", plus $1.59 per topping), choosing size, toppings, and the type of crust, and diners wishing to cram their cuisine into claustrophobic confines can opt for a half-dozen Peproni rolls ($7.99), with pepperoni and cheese wrapped into dough. Or escape the boot-shaped grip of the Mediterranean with a Philly cheesesteak stromboli ($10.99 for large, $5.99 for small).
Hailing from humble beginnings in a renovated Mississippian gas station, McAlister's Deli has revolutionized the concept of fast food with healthy fare recognized by Parents in 2009. Premium ingredients, such as Black Angus roast beef and black forest ham, pile upon stuffed potatoes or artisan bread, sating hungers and silencing stomachs before they recite bank-account numbers. As patrons wait for servers to deliver meals, they sip signature sweet tea, swirled together onsite daily from pure cane sugar and a rainforest-certified black-tea blend as dictated by a closely guarded recipe.
A massive gorilla snarls from the rafters above Putt-Putt Fun House's café, powerless to snatch the ice-cream cones and hot dogs from smiling kids' hands.

Putt-Putt Fun House also offers an array of additional activities including bumper boats, mini bowling, a 3D motion theater, and laser frenzy.
