Fiery red paint splashes the walls of Casa Tequila Authentic Mexican Grill, creating the illusion of heat. Sizzling plates of fajitas emerge from the kitchen, fanning the flames with soft tortillas and hot strips of chicken. Nearby, grilled T-bones and rib eyes amplify the warmth with spicy jalapeños and ranchero sauce. Like most of the menu’s selections, these dishes are made from scratch using super-fresh ingredients. To lower the temperature, barkeeps craft margaritas that are cooler than an iceberg wearing an Elvis wig. Available in a variety of flavors and sizes, these drinks showcase a lineup of more than 50 tequilas. Diners can also enjoy their meals at outdoor tables, amid refreshing breezes and the shade of patio umbrellas.

Jo's Roadhouse’s chefs serve a menu of colossal burgers, hand-cut steaks, and hearty sandwiches inside the comfortable confines of its deep-red and brown walls, adorned with racing memorabilia. A choice of seven savory sauces such as teriyaki, sweet barbecue, or hot buffalo slicks down a dozen traditional wings ($7.99) like chocolate ganache slicks down a pastry chef’s slip 'n’ slide. Entrees include a hand-cut, 12-ounce new york strip steak ($13.99), and breaded North Atlantic cod, gripped by a tenacious french roll and served with homemade tartar sauce ($8.49). The spicy Cajun burger weighs down wayward taste buds with a half pound of meat and hefty slabs of pepper jack cheese ($8.99). On select nights, one corner of the bustling biker bar hosts live musicians, who entertain the crowd with high-spirited tunes and tales of tooth-fairy visits set to “Born to be Wild.”

Wielding a wooden spoon, copper kettle, and century-old recipes, The Chocolate Haus handcrafts an array of tasty goodies from natural, preservative-free ingredients. Visitors gaze through a wide glass partition as the chocolaterie’s signature fudge, in flavors such as old-fashioned chocolate, rocky road, or vanilla pecan, is mixed from scratch. Patrons can lend these three together in a custom box ($23) or explore other realms of temptation with a half-pound of ganache-filled cappuccino truffles ($12) or chocolate-coated s’mores ($21). The shop's well-known walking sticks, featuring a pretzel rolled in caramel, coated in pecans, and dipped in milk chocolate, call to adventure-seeking taste buds ($21). For dentists who practice what they preach, The Chocolate Haus boasts a hefty collection of sugar-free treats, ranging from almond butter crunch ($11) to milk chocolate-, pecan-, and caramel-filled turtles ($11).
