The Red Elephant Pizza and Grill cooks eight kinds of thin-crust pies, but only one bears the restaurant's name. That would be the Red Elephant classic, which comes with mozzarella, pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, and green peppers. If none of the specialty pies catch your fancy, however, you can always create your own pie by choosing from two dozen toppings, including more unusual options such as ground beef, pineapple, and bacon.
But perhaps that's jumping too far ahead. First come the starters, which include salty boiled peanuts and beer-battered onion rings served with spicy homemade dipping sauce. Besides pizza, chefs also prepare an Elephant burger with caramelized onions, saut?ed mushrooms, and bleu cheese dressing, plus heartier entrees such as pasta ya-ya and fresh grilled salmon. After the main course, diners can satisfy their sweet tooth by ordering homemade elephant ears with Blue Bell ice cream or by buying a toothpaste with extra sugar in it.
The chefs at TokyoSteak House & Sushi Bart whip up more than 80 sushi rolls and sashimi selections, including 27 specialty rolls. The swiftest way to sample the wealth of offerings is by ordering the Love Boat entree for four mere mortals or one Paul Bunyan. The smorgasbord includes a choice of 18 sushi rolls, 30 pieces of sashimi, and orders of the spider roll, lobster roll, and Tokyo roll. If that's not enough food, you can bolster your meal with gyoza appetizers, seaweed soup, entrees cooked on a hibachi, and a slew of other Japanese dishes.
Mellow Mushroom serves up made-to-order handcrafted gourmet pizzas and craft beers. For the past 40 years, the dough rollers have continued to dish out stone-baked pies in an eclectic, art filled, and family friendly environment. Each Mellow Mushroom is locally owned and operated, providing a unique vibe focused on great customer service and high-quality food. In fact, the founders go further in describing the restaurants' outlook: "Mellow is a state of mind, a culture, a way of being," they say.
