Chefs at Hi Bombay have honed recipes for curry, vindaloo, and spicy masala over the course of 23 years, yielding a carefully spiced menu of Northern Indian classics and regional seafood specialties. Fresh-baked naan bread and whole-wheat roti sop up sauce from lamb and chicken dishes cooked in a clay-oven tandoor, and fish labadar from the Bay of Bengal simmers in a creamy tomato sauce. Hi Bombay also rents a 75-person banquet room for catered gatherings, and welcomes diners on major holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and the anniversary of Caddyshack II's DVD release.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
Through the panoramic windows of Silver State Trailways' European motorcoaches, passengers watch the highway roll by as veteran drivers chauffeur them between California and Las Vegas. The luxury fleet has made the interstate journey since 1986, along with special trips to Arizona and such California tourist destinations as national parks, Disneyland, and the store where Arnold Schwarzenegger buys his spinach. Seating 31–61 passengers, the air-conditioned buses ease the passing hours with features such as onboard restrooms, reclining seats, and overhead monitors for entertainment. Committed to customer safety, Silver State Trailways keeps in constant touch with its drivers through a state-of-the-art communications system that pinpoints coaches’ whereabouts without having to hire a film-noir P.I. to tail them on horseback.
During the oil change, skilled mechanics infuse engines with a fresh batch of synthetic-blend motor oil. They also run through a 52-point inspection to check vehicular beasts for potential automotive problems or secretive underbellybutton rings. Drivers may also opt for a tire-maintenance package, which steadies the hooves of a trusted steel steed with a tire rotation and four-wheel balance. Certified as a green station by California's Department of Toxic Substances Control, Bruce Scher's Goodyear implements a number of eco-friendly practices, such as recycling fluids and filters, using water-based cleaners, and replacing electric lift bays with retired bodybuilders.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states.

Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, suspension repair, and belt replacement.
Terrible Herbst's automated wash tunnel and experienced staff carefully swipe vehicular surfaces clean with eco-friendly Blue Coral products. Each five-minute express exterior car wash starts off as valets escort vehicles to the drive-thru tunnel, which gently gargles cars with a triple-foam polish and clear-coat protectant. After the soft-cloth wash coats circular feet with wheel brightener, a spot-free rinse and air-dry prep vehicles to emerge onto the road as shiny and head-turning as a president with braces. Customers who opt for the Ultimate full-service car washes can augment the express exterior washes with interior-pampering services. During the 20- to 25-minute cleaning, car-caretakers wipe and dust windows, dashboards, and consoles while vacuums devour dirt and precambrian crumbs from carpets. Wheels emerge from the treatment purged of dirt, and tires debut enameled in a protective dressing.
