Chicken Holiday Restaurant’s chefs pressure cook chicken and flame broil ribs, among many other meats and meats of the sea that they prepare. With carry-out and delivery options available, they fill orders for holiday buffets complete with 8 pounds of ribs, chicken, jumbo shrimp, and sides, along with stocking tubs of chicken with up to 100 pieces. The staff also heats up the kitchen by roasting old yearbooks on the oven burners or cooking flounder filet or scallop dinners with french fries and sides of fried okra and apple fritters. Two flat-screen TVs—55 inches and 60 inches—broadcast NFL games to complete the ambiance.

Sweet Frog’s frozen-yogurt flavors go beyond the norm. In addition to cookies ‘n’ cream and greek yogurt with honey, the lineup of 75 varieties includes maple-bacon donut, cake batter, and dulce de leche. Patrons can sprinkle on toppings such as fresh fruit and candies, then savor their confetti’d confections in the lime-green-and-pink restaurant. Smiling frogs and funky white hanging lamps give the stores an air of fun, but founder Derek Cha is interested in giving more than that to the community; through Sweet Frog, he sponsors children in need and dispatches frog mascots to those who need encouragement.

Behind a distinctive pink-and-purple-painted storefront, Blend of Buckroe's baristas brew individual cups of coffee and espresso drinks. The fledgling cafe enchanted the palate of an reporter, who heralded the shop's selection of light and dark roasts as "delightfully smooth" and "satisfying". Mugs of macchiato and mocha partner with plates of pastries and quiche on the simple café menu, augmented by sumptuous spoonfuls of ice cream. Artwork dangles from the purple walls of the WiFi-saturated seating area, and colorful couch cushions, old-fashioned benches, and an antique barbershop chair nestle patrons as they flip through magazines or compose lengthy sonnets to their favorite Supreme Court justice.
