If you?re tired of Arizona's desert landscape, blame the Flancer goat. Legend has it, the greedy little guy saw Arizona?s once-lush land and greenery as a personal buffet?he ate and ate until the landscape became barren. And though he's now extinct, it is said that the goat's shadow can be seen running through the caf? with a satisfied grin on his face.

Lucky for hungry Arizona natives, Flancer?s manages to offer a robust, diverse menu despite its desert location. Sandwiches are built on made-from-scratch breads that are baked throughout the day. They come stacked with unique flavor combos such as filet mignon and caramelized onions, or chicken breast marinated with prickly pear.

Owner Jeff Flancer claims you won?t find the caf?'s bruschetta anywhere else but Flancer?s. The appetizer comes with breaded goat cheese, basil, and tomato piled atop baked-to-order crouton bread. With innovative food offerings such as this, it?s no wonder the restaurant claims to have been "rockin' taste buds" since it opened in 2000.

The oven at Papa Kelsey’s Pizza & Subs works a double shift. The family of cooks in Papa Kelsey's kitchen not only sends pizzas into the fire, but also bakes all 17 of their hearty subs until the bread is lightly toasted and the cheese melted. An expansive menu lists the handheld creations, from a classic ham, cheese, and salami stack to the Cowboy Cut, which is piled high with barbecue sauce, sliced steak, and hot peppers. Seven specialty pies rise from the flames, including the plain and simple garlic pizza—which foregoes classic sauce for a brushing of pure olive oil—and Papa Kelsey's Special crowned with ham and italian sausage. Though known for its pizza and subs, the kitchen also crafts meat-packed ravioli, crispy calzones, and green beans appealing enough to coax diners to eat vegetables that haven't been hidden inside a chocolate cake by their parents.

Go-karts hugging the turns of a winding indoor track. Bowling balls tumbling down glow-in-the-dark lanes. Lasers zipping past black lights and glowing murals. Within Amazing Jake?s more than 90,000-square-foot indoor amusement park, these attractions are just the tip of the iceberg. Elsewhere, cars collide in a bumper arena and riders of the mini-coaster scream their teeniest, tiniest screams.

Those are tough to hear inside the arcade, which resounds with the bleeps and blips of more than 150 redemption and video games. While the older kids enjoy all these spoils, younger guests can savor four attractions of their own, including a train ride and carousel. To help visitors reenergize, Amazing Jake?s houses a 100-foot all-you-can-eat buffet stocked with pizza slices, pastas, and salad fixings.

Flavorsome ingredients and fresh, handmade dough marry in gourmet specialty pizzas such as Mr. C's Meat Lover's Stuffed Pizza Pie (pepperoni, salami, sausage, meatballs, beef, ham, and five cheeses, $18.49 for a 12-inch pie), the hot and spicy barbecue chicken ($12.49 for a 12-inch), and the vegetarian Pizza Bianca (Alfredo sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, romano, fresh basil, black pepper, and black olives, $11.49 for a 12-inch).

Italian entree specialties include fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp ($9.99), spaghetti with clams tossed in either a light garlic-butter sauce or classic marinara ($10.99), and eggplant parmesan served with a side of spaghetti, garlic bread, and salad ($9.49). Subs, spicy wings, salads, and desserts round out the menu into a nicely round circle tastier than a traffic circle or rutabaga crop circle.
