  • Planet Sub
    Though it has since expanded to over 35 national franchises, Planet Sub traces its roots back to a single sandwich shop in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1979. The sub shop's growth and evolution hasn't coincided with a loss of personality, though—each location is furnished with handmade tables, and, most importantly, from-scratch recipes. The pride of Planet Sub is the made-from-scratch bread, whose simple ingredients satisfies even vegan customers: flour, yeast, water, sugar, and salt. Each day, the staffers mix and hand-roll the dough, yielding trays of golden-brown loaves. They also slice up fresh veggies, meats, and cheeses and prepare their own sauces and marinades. The menu appeals to many diets, from meat lovers (who might enjoy the Planet Sub's premium roast beef, oven-roasted turkey, and smoked ham) to vegetarians (who might gravitate toward a barbecue sub made with five-grain tempeh). Guests can try the Super Hero, made with salami, pepperoni, spicy capicola, provolone, red onions, lettuce, banana peppers, oregano, oil, and vinegar, or try The Experience, with chicken, pepperoni, bacon, cream cheese, jalepenos, pepper jack cheese, and a from-scratch chipotle sauce. Gluten-free bread is even available at certain locations; you can find napkins at all of them, in case you were worried.

  • Winstead's
    For 70 years, Winstead’s has garnered a myriad of accolades and praise for its scrumptious hamburgers and other drive-in eats. Poke through the menu to find the joint’s signature Double Winstead steakburger, grilled with U.S. Choice Steak and topped with all the sloppy-tasty fixings––mustard, ketchup, pickle, and onion ($3.35). The Fifty-Fifty puts hot and crisp french fries and crunchy onion rings side by side in the most delicious peace pact since ketchup and mustard ended their hot-dog feud ($2.19). Scarf a chili cheese dog ($2.79) or grilled-cheese sandwich ($2.05), and then focus on Winstead’s old-fashioned desserts. Creamy milk shakes and malts ($2.45–$4.55) immerse taste buds in flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, banana, and butterscotch, and Winstead’s beloved skyscraper shake ($7.25) packs enough iced delight to quench the thirsts of four people or one André the Giant. Other desserts include a root-beer float ($2.45) and apple-dumpling à la mode ($4.60).

  • Popeyes Chicken and Biscuits
    Currently celebrating its 25th anniversary, Popeyes remains the flavorful lovechild of Cajun and Creole cooking, serving up a wide-ranging menu. Connoisseurs of crispiness can stick with Popeyes’ famous New Orleans–style fried chicken meals ($4.49–$6.89) surrounded with savory sides ($1.59–$3.79) such as warm flaky biscuits, red beans and rice, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, Cajun rice, and more. Otherwise, slather some livers and gizzards ($2.99–$5.49) onto a biscuit and eat it, temporarily imbuing you with the chicken’s mighty strength and ability to smell time. Avian-averse appetites can feast instead on a shrimp po’ boy combo ($6.19) with a pecan pie ($1.49) or Mississippi mud pie ($1.99) for dessert. And to keep your famished family from impeaching you and electing a new parent, quell multi-person appetites with bona fide family meals ($10.49–$30.99).

  • Korean Restaurant Sobahn
    Featured on NBC Action News, Korean Restaurant Sobahn crafts authentic Korean cuisine that recalls the ancestral homeland of the owner-and-manager. The menu, updated regularly to reflect Korea's changing culinary trends, boasts savory options ranging from meats and seafood to stews. Within a hot stone bowl of dolsot bibimbap, rice nestles snugly betwixt hearty beef and vegetables, and the entire creation rests under a jaunty fried egg given to the restaurant at a baseball stadium's fan appreciation day ($12.99). Tear into thinly sliced beef bulgogi ($12.99) or the jaeyuk bokkeum's pork soaked in a spicy marinade ($12.99). Every entree can accompany a collection of banchan, a set of about five complimentary side dishes that enhance the flavor of the table's meals. While the banchan has been known to shift daily, like a greased sunrise, past dishes include zucchini, seasoned seaweed, tempura fish cakes, and spicy kimchi, which is made fresh daily.
