  • Sam's Ristorante
    Flickering candles and a grand chandelier fill Sam's Ristorante's high-ceilinged dining room with a romantic glow. Graceful arches and painted landscapes foster a classic ambiance that carries through to the menu of traditional Italian cuisine. The kitchen crafts its own marinara sauce in house to add rich flavor to orders of veal parmigiana. Pasta varieties, including angel hair, ravioli, and fettuccine, tangle with morsels of seafood, veggies, and housemade italian sausage in specialty dishes. Sauces made with marsala wine and portobello mushrooms coat chicken breasts and center-cut fillets with more flavor than a spice-rubbed quilt.

  • Pug Dog's Diner
    By taking cues from actual dog breeds, Pug Dog's Diner grills up hot dogs inspired by regional flavors. For instance, the Boston Terrier is smothered with Boston baked beans, and the German Shepherd is layered with sauerkraut, mustard, and letters of recommendation from security guards. Burgers and baked potatoes round out the menu, and in true diner fashion, there's also full breakfast service. It's mostly omelets and scrambles, but there are pancakes with fresh strawberries, as well.

  • Fiesta Cancun Restaurant
    Fiesta Mexican Grill's chefs dish up generous portions of authentic Mexican classics. Dinner combinations serve to assault taste buds with a cornucopia of different textures and flavors, as duos such as enchiladas and tacos arrive in time to battle their alter egos, chile poblano and enchiladas, and stop them from destroying the moon. Lunch ushers in similarly crafted pursuits, as chile poblanos, tacos, and burritos vie for placement next to beans and rice, with sightings of guacamole salad. Mouths anxiously awaiting the arrival of satisfying entrees can step away from the edge with appetizers such as guacamole, cheese, or bean dips, while nachos available in different toppings send tiny tortilla planes to taxi on tarmac tongues.

An all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar ($6.99) pleases leaf lovers with hot and cold plates of omnivorous treats, and Southwestern favorites such as beef or chicken quesadillas ($7.99–$8.99) and grilled shrimp fajitas ($14.99) satisfy south-of-the-border taste buds residing in the lower chin.
