Celebrating more than half a century in business, Tom's Drive-In sates speedy appetites with a multifarious menu of quality eats and prompt, courteous service. Swing by for the signature Tominator combo and have the flame-broiled quarter-pound burger patty with a slew of toppings saunter into the stomach alongside french fries and a regular soda ($4.59). Feed a whole household or a gaggle of orphaned condor hatchlings with a family pack, which includes six Works cheeseburgers topped with a choice of four unique sauces and paired with a box of fries ($9.19). While relaxing in a sleek, space-pod¬–styled booth and soaking in the retro décor, treat taste buds to an arctic blast of ice cream and chewy sweets ($2.50+) before driving off into the dim sunset or groping forward into a beaming eclipse.
Papa John's has carefully crafted a menu of specialty pizzas to satisfy any taste or mouth shape.

Satisfy herbivores and herbivoyeurs with a Tuscan Six-Cheese or Garden Fresh pie. The full list of specialty pizzas includes several more; take the hassle out of haggling over individual ingredients and boldly cast your straight-ticket ballot for the pizza party that your conscious dictates.
The sandwich smiths at Uncle Ned's Deli build handheld meals of piled-high cold cuts and tasty fixings layered between freshly baked bread or rolled into a tasty wrap. The hefty between-bread eats on Uncle Ned’s menu double as paperweights, pinning down land deeds and Vitruvian men with ingredient-packed selections such as Blackbeard's bicorn, a maritime mélange of tuna salad, provolone, lettuce and tomato ($5.25), or the rustic roast-beef Stetson, a sizable package of deli meat, cheese, mayo, onion, and pickle ($6.45). All sandwiches arrive on oven-fresh slabs of french bread, wheat sub rolls, swirled rye, or sourdough, while meals such as the chicken cordon bleu ($5.95) greet mouths inside an edible gift wrapping of flatbread. Uncle Ned's Deli serves meat-free treats such as the egg-salad sandwich, stuffed with provolone, tomato, and lettuce ($3.85), or the cheesy Panama, a mixture of cheddar, pepper jack, and red roasted pepper bound with a tangy mortar of whole-grain mustard ($3.85), which patrons can wash down with sips from their soda followed by a potato-chip palate cleanser.

The Red Radish’s owner Amy Marrazzo firmly believes in the concept of “less is more.” When curating her shop’s stock of breads, fruit, bulk herbs, canned goods, herbal remedies, and beauty products, she seeks out brands that take a minimal approach to processing and flavoring. That includes Good Earth Farms, which supplies her shop with free-range and organic meats, as well as Nature’s Sunshine for herbs and natural supplements. She also takes care to maintain a range of products for a number of dietary needs, such as dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and low-carb. For clients’ outer beauty, the store features Good Earth’s soaps, which are handcrafted locally, as well as the locally produced Trillium Organics body products.
Pagoni's Pizza lines its Sicilian-style, deep-dish, and thin-crust pies with more than 25 toppings, including meats imported from Chicago. Its from-scratch dough also includes a gluten-free option. Cooks also sling classic pastas such as meat or cheese ravioli and chicken parmigiana, and they fill breadsticks with cheddar, jalape?os, and dreams of growing up into a baguette.
