The cooks at Dickey's Barbecue Pit have been serving slow-smoked, USDA-inspected meats slathered in sauce concocted from the Dickey family recipe since the first shop opened in Dallas in 1941. The menu is populated with sandwiches piled high with barbecue-drenched Texas-style chopped beef brisket, southern pulled pork, spicy cheddar sausage, and turkey breast ($3.50–$7). Fingers dress themselves to paint white T-shirts after handling plates mounded with barbecue-smothered ribs, which are accompanied by a choice of two sides such as creamy coleslaw, waffle-iron fries, or mac 'n' cheese ($11). The Giant Stuffed Baker cushions a family of meat, cheese, and toppings on a baked-potato sofa more fluffy than Mother's Day card poetry ($5.50–$7).

The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests’ senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store’s staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of premium ice cream in the onsite creamery and helping patrons select a flavor from a list of more than 60 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company’s founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery’s signature sweet-cream ice cream using their culinary expertise.

Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer’s choice of ice cream and mix-ins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one custom mélange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers a menu full of other scream-worthy confections, including cakes, shakes, and pie à la mode.

Claiming a slew of awards, including Best Chicken Dinner by the Orange County Register, El Pollo Loco fills stomachs on the go with a menu of flavorful poultry inspired by Mexico's kitchens. Enjoy the rich tastes of a four-piece combo ($7.99)—including breasts and wings marinated in herbs, spices, and citrus juices—entouraged by two sides from an expansive selection, including spanish rice, barbecue black beans, corn cobbettes, and mac 'n' cheese. For a more portable lunch during parkour breaks from the office, wrap your chicken in the warm tortilla blanket of a twice-grilled burrito ($5.99). El Pollo Loco's innovative salsa bar can tickle to your tongue until milk comes out its nose with fresh varieties of avocado, chipotle, and pico de gallo.
