For more than a decade, The Varsity Roadhouse has kept appetites at bay with burgers, sandwiches, and of course, wings. The restaurant's signature wings arrive at tables hot and slathered with 10 different sauces, including smokey barbecue and garlic parmesan. While chowing down and composing a list of reasons why wing-eating should be an Olympic event, guests can lose themselves in the 160-inch HD projector screens beaming the day's sports games. Meanwhile, kids have it made at Varsity, too: they can win prizes in the game room, and they eat for free Monday?Wednesday.

At Los Jalapenos Mexican Restaurant, the staff knows how to make each diner feel welcome. This means they serve with kind attention, but not too much, so diners can focus on having a conversation with their companions or the face they've painted on their plate with salsa. Owners Esteban and Leticia sate appetites with a menu of traditional Mexican fare culled from generations-old recipes, including classics such as fajitas, tacos, and grilled chicken smothered in mole. Between bites at the Carrollton location, diners can also catch a live musical act, including an Elvis impersonator who unfurls his cape one Friday a month.
