The seasoned chefs at Rogue Wave court patrons with a lunch and dinner menu filled with hearty sandwiches, grilled burgers, and ice cream dished out alongside a full-service coffee bar. Celebrate flavor-filled starters such as the crab cakes frosted in a roasted-red-pepper-cream sauce ($7.10). Mouths can nuzzle up to the Black & Blue burger, a cajun-seasoned patty cloaked in blue cheese ($8.20), or chew through the foliage of a veggie sandwich, assembled from a baguette layered with sautéed zucchini and drizzled in red-wine vinegar and olive oil ($6.60). Cement antivampire sentiment with the garlic-butter KC strip, a 6.5-ounce char-grilled USDA Choice slab of strip steak served with white-truffle mashed potatoes and balsamic-glazed asparagus.
The resident chefs at Feaster's Bistro harness the power of locally sourced ingredients and house-made sauces to construct a menu of inventive American comfort fare. Diners can oil rusty jaw hinges with appetizers of fried green beans ($4.99) sidled up next to garlic dipping sauce. Dinner options include hefty portions of elk meat loaf ($11.50), which snuggles Rocky Hills Elk Ranch elk meat with mashed potatoes beneath a blanket of blackberry-stout gravy, and the spinach pie, sourced from local Linderia farms and wrapped in a puff pastry ($9.50). Lunch commences with smoked-pork Reuben sandwiches ($7.50), which bridge slices of Great Harvest rye bread with slow-smoked pork shoulder, homemade sauerkraut and handfuls of suspension cables.
Simple Simon's Pizza piles a wide assortment of toppings onto three types of fresh, made-from-scratch crusts for each hearty specialty pie listed on its menu. The cheeseburger pizza convinces hamburger beef to join onions, pickles, and mustard in an escape from a life on the bun, and the Pepperoni Pounder strews a full pound of meaty silver dollars over a wishing fountain of dough. A fleet of six carnivore-friendly ingredients, such as italian sausage and canadian bacon, meets with four veggies, including mushrooms and black olives, to discuss a business merger atop the Big 10. Each slice can be hosed down with a 2-liter bottle of soda, which washes down tasty mouthfuls much like a make-out session with a fire hydrant.
“This is one buffet that lives up to its name,” raves Lawrence.com, referring to King Buffet's assortment of more than 200 Chinese dishes.

At CiCi’s Pizza, patrons wander along a buffet brimming with fresh-baked pizzas, hearty pasta, crisp salads, and warm desserts.

All of CiCi's offerings are free of trans fat and sad flour, including sweets such as brownies, apple pizza, and cinnamon rolls. Although pricing varies by location, many franchises offer the buffet for less than $6 per person, while inviting guests ages 2 or younger nosh for free.
