Owners Sarah and John Williams welcome guests to their down-home establishment with plates brimming with classic comfort fare dressed up with high-quality ingredients and flavor combinations. A sidewalk chalkboard touts the regularly rotating menu and informs passersby of the latest concoctions and fonts being created in the Williams’s kitchen. The restaurant’s eponymous dish comes filled with a choice of chicken and veggies or beef and mushrooms, with the high-quality meats and produce migrating into other dishes such as the pan-roasted chicken or the spinach and brie tart. Each meal can conclude with one of the bar’s classic cocktails or homestyle desserts.
Founded in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton, Burger King rapidly expanded from humble beginnings as a lone burger joint to more than 12,400 locations across 79 countries today, making it the second-largest fast-food-hamburger chain in the world. Its signature burger?the Whopper sandwich?consists of flame-broiled, quarter-pound beef patties crowned with a miniature fedora and a fully customizable array of toppings such as tomatoes, onions, and dill pickles. Focused on continual improvement, the chain recently reinvented the fries that accompany each value meal, outfitting the spud slices with a thicker cut of potato for a fluffier texture on the inside and crispier golden-brown exterior. A spread of decadent desserts including dutch apple pie and Hershey pie keeps sweet teeth from elongating into fangs, and made-to-order breakfast sandwiches clasp eggs, american cheese, and bacon, sausage, or ham between two halves of a flaky croissant to round out the speedy menu.
Despite the singular focus of its name, George's Steakhouse presents a diverse range of cuisine. Beyond the top-sirloin steak and shrimp entrees that headline the dinner menu, the eatery presents a wide range of burgers and sandwiches for lunch. Breakfast lovers get their fill as well; five omelets—plus a create-your-own option—engage the savory receptors of palates, and fruit blintzes slake sugar cravings. These soft pastries are filled with cream cheese and topped with either blueberries or strawberries—which are just blueberries with straws through them.
Fun House Pizza’s cooks have been tossing craving-satisfying pizzas since 1964, catering to families with their shareable fare and friendly staff. Gooey pizzas arrive topped with Fun House Pizza’s secret sauce recipe, sprinkled with toppings that include kraut, mushrooms, and Italian or Polish sausage. The kitchen crew gets creative with their specialty pizzas, which play dress up to create pies of the taco, bacon cheeseburger, and mexican variety. The restaurants cater to kids with a slew of entertainment options, from Thomas the Tank Engine rides to game rooms with air hockey and video games to the cheerful servers who are ready and willing to eat homework assignments.
For almost 30 years, Magpie's Restaurant has catered to the surrounding community, but even this decades-old legacy pales in comparison to the legacy of the building that it occupies.
For more than four decades, Eddy, T-Bones Deli & Meat Market's head butcher, has cleaved and trimmed meats into hearty cuts and chops. Steaks, pork chops, grade-A turkeys, European sausages, and other meats line up in the shop's glass display cases, divided into tidy rows by lanes of Astroturf. T-Bones also serves brisket sliders, snow-crab legs, pastas, and other meals indoors or beneath umbrellas on the outdoor-patio bar. An array of wines, sauces and marinades, chips, and other grocery items round out T-Bones' inventory.
