What’s Your Flavor curates classic American concession-style treats filling cups with syrupy shaved ice, sprinkle-topped ice cream, and a range of chips smothered in nacho cheese. Like Dr. Jekyll’s online dating profile, the menu features two distinct personalities. One half emphasizes frosty options such as smoothies and banana splits, and the other focuses on hot nachos and plates of spicy Cheetos topped with melted cheese. Alongside these nostalgic treats, the shop also sells a range of grownup salads and sandwiches.
Hearty American drive-in fare fills the menu at Frank’s Hog Stand, a motorcycle-themed eatery that serves sit-down diners as well as riders on the go. Twosomes can dig into The Chopper philly-cheesesteak sandwich, which nestles succulent beef beneath monterey cheese, grilled onions, and bell peppers ($6.99), or The Dirty Frank, which smothers a hoagie-roll-ensconced hot dog in chili, cheese, and relish, creating a trifecta of taste. A lineup of 100% Angus-beef burgers assumes a range of personalities, from the friendly third-pound A Hand Full to the bombastic 1-pound The Heavy Throttle, each paired with one side, such as french fries, coleslaw, or baked beans. A shared dessert such as a chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry milk shake washes down meaty remnants, or mouths can garble the national anthem as they wrap around an all-American slice of apple pie baked to crispy perfection.

Most know that the way to an iguana's heart is through its stomach, but it is useful to remember that human stomachs can be reached through the mouth, nose, eyes, and—if it's an emergency—the number written on the refrigerator's dry-erase board. Today's Groupon for Nicavid's artisanal bakery stimulates your gentle iguana heart with a sensational menu. Made-from-scratch pastries ($1.20–$2.40) include croissants, Danishes, sausage-stuffed kolaches, cinnamon rolls, muffins, and sticky buns. For lunch, Boar's Head meats and cheeses are artfully sandwiched between such delicious handles as flaky buttered croissants and flavorful beer bread and can be customizable creativity vessels ($7.25 for whole, $5.65 for half) or Nicavid's own established creations. The charming café is known for its Monterey chicken sandwich—homemade chicken salad served with bacon, provolone, lettuce, tomato, and avocado on a croissant ($7.95 for whole, $6.15 for half). The Tuscan roast beef ($8.25 whole, $6.38 half) rolls over the tongue like an Italian romance novel with blue-cheese crumbles, sautéed mushrooms and onions, lettuce, tomato, and honey-balsamic vinaigrette on toasted beer bread. Well-composed soups ($2.95–$3.95) and salads ($2.95–$6.95) are also delicious, such as the rabbit and redhead favorite: carrot-ginger soup.
