When you walk into Pinnacle Sports Grill, there’s a good chance your eyes will jump right to the giant video cube looming above a central brick-island bar. It’s a standout in this flat-screen-filled temple of football, baseball, and basketball, a statement that sports should be taken just as seriously as food. Like the athletes onscreen, the gastropub’s menu covers a lot of ground—pork tenderloin sandwiches, brick-oven pizzas, guacamole-bacon burgers, ale-battered fish ‘n’ chips, Kobe meatloaf, and New York–style cheesecake. If you’re brave enough to try Wild Bill’s hot wings—the hottest available—be sure to have one of Pinnacle’s many craft beers or cocktails within easy reach. As guests make pilgrimages to Pinnacle, they rack up points on the restaurant's MVP frequent-diner card, with every dollar spent on food and drink getting them closer to free meals and a chance to learn the secret Pinnacle Sports Grill handshake.

Papa John's has been popping out perfectly personalized pies 'round the clock for more than 25 years, arranging a lineup of specialty pizzas and sides on a munificent menu. Patrons can bedeck dough disks with carnivorous confetti such as spicy italian sausage, bacon, and unlimited invisible meats; or build a basic hawaiian with ham and pineapple. Omnivores can record results from a grilled-chicken-and-green-pepper experiment on a napkin spreadsheet; veggie traditionalists can plant tongues on the savory flavors of artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes. Like a popular club or an especially bangin’ fireplace store, Papa John's stays open late, making it an opportune place to stock up for impromptu pajama jams and uncontrollable sleep-feasting.
The master pizza slingers at Pier 49 craft each of their circular San Francisco–style comestibles using a secret, scratch-made sourdough crust, before slathering them with sauce, sprinkling then with uniquely delicious toppings, and baking them to a perky, blissful brown. The menu showcases specialty pizzas in four sizes ranging from personal for mealtime parties of one ($5.99–$6.99) to jumbo for the inevitable sumo smorgasbord ($19.99–$21.99). Taste test the un-waters of the Fisherman's Wharf, which furnishes a briny bounty of baby bay shrimp, surimi crab, melted mozzarella, and alfredo, with a choice of cooked, fresh, or sundried tomatoes. Or, saunter saucily down a slice of the Lombard Street, which pairs hickory-flavored barbecue chicken, six varieties of imported gourmet cheese, and red bermuda onions for a yucca-less taste of the southwest. A build-your-own option is also readily available with toppings as diverse as cashews, artichoke hearts, and hamburger, and nine sauces including alfredo, taco, and pesto. Feasters who take a literal approach to square meals can opt to savor sandwiches such as the Alcatraz, a happy stack of ham, pepperoni, sausage, and veggies on a homemade bun ($6.99), or brush up on their culinary creativity by creating their own pasta ($8.99+).
