Since 1993, the chefs at Opies Pizza have adhered to a simple yet tasty pizza formula—they make each pie with fresh dough, tangy sauce, and tons of toppings. They customize each thick-crust pizza with more than 10 toppings and its own at-bat song. Or they throw together one of Opies' specialty pizzas such as the Maxxed, a catchall combo of two meats and five veggies. Alternatively, they also bake pizza toppings into a 10-inch stromboli.
Luigi’s chefs lovingly prepare traditional Italian dishes, compiling a menu of hand-rolled pizza, meaty entrees, and pastas soused in house-made sauces. Kick off an evening of noshing, conversing, and imitating old Frankie Blue Eyes with an appetizer of breaded cheese sticks ($3.49) or a five-piece ensemble of fried ravioli ($3.29). In the chicken fettuccine, a crew of Cajun-seasoned chicken strips reclines on a buttery bed of noodles replete with tomato throw pillows ($12.99). The lasagna stacks its many layers with sauce and meat ($9.99), and the veal marsala pairs tender, milk-fed beef with mushrooms beneath a canopy of decadent wine sauce ($17.99). After rolling out doughy canvases for their pizzas ($11.99 for a large), chefs slather the floury spheres with savory sauce, cheese, and toppings from a bevy of ingredients, which include ham, hot peppers, and morsels of succulent hamburger ($1.79/large topping). Cap off dining experiences with one of the desserts, such as a slice of fried New York–style cheesecake that flaunts a frock of graham crackers and a Pollock-inspired drizzling of strawberries or chocolate ($4.49).
The chefs at Tuscany Square Ristorante recreate traditional Tuscan recipes, simmering savory sauces to ladle over a menu of pasta, steak, and seafood. Adept hands construct house-made lasagna, layering soft noodles between strata of bubbling homemade marinara and meat ($12.95). A 10-ounce slab of Choice sirloin ($16.95) ages for 30 days and debuts mature and ready to assume the responsibilities of pleasing a palate, filling a stomach, and refinancing a mortgage.
Anchored by its fresh-baked dough made from scratch from an old family recipe, Papa Joe's pizzas conquer hunger with their formidably large size and plethora of toppings options. Crusts can be rolled thick or thin, then topped with a traditional red sauce, pink sauce, spicy ranchero, or garlic and oil. Carnivorous cravers might opt for meaty toppings such as pepperoni, sausage, bacon, or chicken, and herbivorous appetites will pine for layers of spinach, mushrooms, or jalapeño peppers resting on a mozzarella bed. This Groupon is good for carry-out and dine-in, though those looking to enjoy a relaxing meal in Papa Joe's casual dining area can also take advantage of the free WiFi, ideal for quickly settling heated dinner debates over whether New Delhi is the capital of India or Indiana.
Miller's Pizza Place is the go-to restaurant to get your pizza fix. From plain pepperoni to ham and pineapple or a heaping pile of fresh veggies, the pizza-makers create pies sure to conquer all cravings. The menu doesn't end with pizzas, though—the chefs also make calzones, subs, salads, jumbo wings, and breadsticks. Takeout and delivery are available.

Watery-mouthed patrons can quell hunger pains with Inner Circle's versatile menu of munchables, which offers a variety of specialty pizzas. Nibble on a chicken bacon ranch pizza ($7.29–$19.99) or admire the thick crust shell on a taco pizza bedecked with sausage, cheddar, mozzarella, taco seasoning, diced lettuce, tomatoes, and a side of sour cream ($3.49–$19.99) as it explodes beautifully against an unadorned wall. Inner Circle Pizza's popular jumbo wings are made fresh and lathered in one of a plethora of sauces, such as garlic ranch, parmesan garlic, teriyaki, or kamikaze—an ideal snack for watching the big game or C-SPAN's newest congressional rock opera.
