At Black Horse Tavern & Grill, the decor is not surprisingly centered around framed pictures of horses and horse head statues—all black, of course. The equine-heavy furnishings surround the eatery’s main star, the bar—also horseshoe shaped—which sits in the center of the room. There, bartenders pull from taps of Blue Moon, Stella Artois, and a handful of craft brews. Back in the kitchen, chefs celebrate all things American with large-portion entrees that include made-from-scratch fish and chips, potato croquettes, marinated hanger steak, and bacon wrapped meatloaf paired with mashed potatoes smothered in gravy. A number of flat-screen TVs are tuned to the day's big sporting events, and the bar supplies handheld electronic trivia games that can be played against strangers or your split personality.

At the Hot Dog Shoppe, the team members define "hot-dog topping" broadly. They can smother their hearty dogs in a classic blend of chili and cheese, for example, but they can also enhance them with more unusual flavors, such as a teriyaki glaze and pineapple chunks, or mac and cheese fried to a crispy finish. Side dishes are similarly adorned, ranging from classic french fries to fries topped with chili, cheddar cheese, pastrami, bacon, grilled peppers and onions, jalapeños, nacho cheese, and sour cream.
The raw ingredients that RJ Chinese Kitchen's staff uses to craft its classic Chinese-American cuisine is delivered twice a week to guarantee freshness.
