The chefs at Centennial Steakhouse at Zia Park Casino do more than sear hand-cut, USDA-quality aged rib-eye, filet mignon, and porterhouse steaks to order. They also handcraft creamy hollandaise sauce for topping grilled asparagus and salmon oscar, roast garlic for flavoring fluffy mashed potatoes, and prepare sweet, buttery lobster tails for storing surplus casino winnings. Along with the lengthy wine list, the chocolate-brown interior's soft lighting and private booths make it an ideal spot for a date.
At Brianna's Pizza, it's possible to eat pizza for every meal without growing bored of the same flavors. That's because the restaurant's cooks bake a wide variety of pies, from breakfast pizzas to dessert pizzas. They also pile traditional deep-dish pizzas with savory toppings such as buffalo chicken or shrimp. Try your meal paired with housemade cheese bread or saucy chicken wings.
Continuing the Italian tradition of pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice), Pizzeria Venti hand-tosses a handful of oven-baked, circular pies teeming with trans-fat-free toppings. Like a repertory theater, Venti's homespun crust acts as a stage for more than 20 pizza performances. The pillowy crusts are pedestals for varieties such as house-made italian sausage, seasoned with fennel, fresh basil, and herbs ($3.50 for a slice) or chicken vesuvio which touts a roasted breast of chicken, mushrooms, black olives and garlic ($4.75 per slice). Though pizza prevails as Venti's main attraction, the menu is also stocked with baked pastas ($6.50+), salads ($6+), and soups ($3+) to create a culinary lineup that is more well-rounded than a reconstructed Humpty Dumpty.
DoubleDave's dough-slingers adorn handmade crusts with house-made sauce and more than 20 topping options that populate a menu of specialty pizzas, stromboli, and stuffed rolls. Every day, at least two batches of fresh dough are hand-tossed into edible frisbees destined to be coated in quality cheeses, delectable meats, or fresh veggies sliced by hand or carved by laser vision. Blaze a new taste trail with custom pizzas ($6.49–$13.99/pizza, depending on size; $1.09–$1.70/topping, depending on size), or bite into specialty pies such as the classic veggie pizza, which welcomes vine-ripened California tomatoes, italian sweet peppers, and other delectables to new homes atop smoked provolone and a honey whole-wheat crust. The buffalo chicken's spicy wing sauce converges with cool ranch dressing alongside mozzarella and chicken strips ($13.99/12", $16.99/15", $19.99/18"). Pepperoni rolls envelop the eponymous meat in dough and smoked provolone, busting through hard-earned gameday appetites or serving as a replacement ball during games of paper football.
Shogun Steakhouse slices, dices, and rolls out sushi and teppanyaki with an amusing twirl of the knife from tableside chefs to meet the semipermeable appetites of Permian Basin diners. Rev taste-bud engines with an appetizing order of egg rolls ($3.50) or wontons ($3.50) as grill masters sharpen spatulas for swift stir-frying. Chefs sate protein pursuers with sizzling orders of aged, corn-fed hibachi sirloin strip ($14.95) or boneless chicken covered with teriyaki sauce ($11.95) seared to perfection before being flung into the mouths of awestruck diners still stunned after seeing the Grand Canyon. Each dinner comes with a culinary entourage of soup, salad, onions, zucchini, mushrooms, and steamed rice to complement the community table as the chef lobs culinary concoctions and crafts meaty ensembles. Patrons who eschew the flavor-altering effects of flames can enjoy Shogun’s sushi option, including fresh nigiri ($4 to $4.75); maki rolls, such as the cucumber- and avocado-cored spicy tuna roll ($7.95); and full dinners, such as the sashimi combo, three slices of tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and tilapia ($15.95). The menu provides a tongue-pleasing accompaniment to unique snarf-down sessions, perfect for intimate dinners or exponentially more intimate quintuple dates.
