For more than 30 years, Quiznos has toasted its submarine sandwiches to bring out the hidden flavors found in butcher-quality meats, cheese, and artisan breads. Its classic and signature subs take on a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles ranging from the prime rib mushroom and swiss to the classic italian donning black olives, mozzarella, red-wine vinaigrette, and plentiful sliced meats. Those closely monitoring their waistlines can take unabashed bites of sandwiches that have fewer than 500 calories, such as the honey-bourbon chicken sub. Quiznos' wraps and wide variety of salads offer slimmer versions of sub fare and flaunt supreme aerodynamics when shot out of T-shirt cannons and into mouths. A selection of Flatbreads, soups, and salads round out Quiznos' varied menu.

Inside Original Napoli Italian Restaurant by Papa Zack's bustling kitchen, a team of talented chefs craft house-made pasta before dousing noodles in meat, marinara, alfredo, and clam sauces. This kitchen architects the eatery's "what," but the staff's "how" involves constant, family-friendly friendliness. The culinary experts give chicken the royal treatment, dressing it up in a variety of dishes, including marsala, piccata, parmigiana, and rollatini. Sandwiches and pizza in two crusts round out the Italian-centric menu. The catering leg of the business feeds multicourse meals for at least 10 people or 5 people saving half their meal for their fallout shelter.

Above all else, comfort food should taste familiar. Taqueria Taco-Riendo seems to embrace this philosophy wholeheartedly, filling the menu with faithful recreations of Mexican cuisine's best-known staples. However, familiarity doesn't make the flavors of chorizo, cilantro, and flour and corn tortillas any less hearty or more likely to share secrets. These ingredients appear throughout the menu, from tacos and tortas to fajitas and quesadillas. The taqueria presents diners with a selection of horchata, lemonade, and other drinks with which to wash down meals.

Brickhouse Subs shares a space with the Nestle Toll House Cafe, a brick and mortar peddle of the iconic cookies, ice cream, and candy bars. The sandwich side of the shop enhances the menu with a variety of savory ingredients stuffed between two slices of bread. These lunch-ready meals can be combined easily with cups of coffee or smoothies to get one's sweets fix, since requests to replace mayonnaise with vanilla ice cream are usually denied.
