Sabaidee Restaurant's robust menu brims with fresh fish, poultry, and beef, all specifically spiced to form authentic Thai and Lao meals. Rice noodles lay the foundation for classic pad thai, piled high with meat, peanuts, scrambled eggs, and enough bean sprouts to disguise the patch of dead grass over where the family's piggy bank is buried. Patrons can warm up with bowls of pho, whose broth churns with sliced rare beef, tripe, and rice noodles, or cool down with chilled calamari salad. 

Sabaidee’s spacious dining room, filled with white-clothed tables and roomy booths, allows guests to stretch their third legs and gaze lovingly at dishes illuminated by the chandeliers hanging overhead.

Straw Hat Pizza brings families and friends together to feast on California-style pies, signature Hot Hat sandwiches, and the crisp contents of a market-fresh salad bar. Pre-designed pizzas include The Works, whose meaty mélange of salami, ham, sausage, pepperoni, and beef ($13.99+) provides a drastic contrary to the California Veggie, loaded with lifeguard-approved zucchini, broccoli, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and garlic-cheese sauce ($13.99+). Dinner DJs can also enliven suppertime soirees by spinning their own saucy disks through toppings including meatballs, pineapple, and spicy chorizo ($10.99+). Hot Hat sandwiches ($5.29+) bury succulent sliced meats and gooey gobs of cheese in crispy signature shells, making them ideal practice tools for archaeologists in training for an excavation on the moon.

Boasting a bevy of gooey pizza-pie options, Extreme Pizza has garnered a boatload of praise for its ability to fuse toppings without welding or undertaking genetic experiments. Frisbee-toss an indee-sized cheese disc into your well-watered mouth, such as the Paia pie, with pineapple, oranges, and Canadian bacon ($7.45+). Or try the Yard Sale, which includes sausage, pepperoni, salami, mushrooms, black olives, green peppers, red onions, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and mozzarella ($7.45+). Groups of 6 to 10 people, meanwhile, can prepare palates for the onslaught of hearty slices by prefacing them with a massive family-style salad, such as the caesar ($20.99). Others can stimulate taste buds without licking a defibrillator with a dozen X-Factors wings ($4.75 for six, $7.95 for 12).
