Hungry Howie’s grew into a nation-spanning franchise from a humble start in Taylor, Michigan in 1973, when founder Jim Hearn converted a hamburger stand into a pizzeria. With the help of business partner Steve Jackson––who started as a delivery man at the original location––the two men franchised a decade later and began expanding their delicious operation, eventually expanding to nearly 600 locations spread across 24 states in the 3rd dimension alone. Winner of Pizza Today magazine’s Chain of the Year award in 2004, Hungry Howie’s continues to earn the most attention for its specialty flavored crust pizzas––which infuse dough with a choice of eight seasonings such as ranch or garlic herb––as well as zesty pizza accompaniments such as oven-baked meatball and chicken parm subs.

Candied walnuts and baby arugula are usually salad ingredients. But at Legends Pizza and Wings, they are standard gourmet-pizza toppings. The eatery?s creative toppings also include Florida strawberries, smoked gouda, goat, and ricotta cheese, a balsamic reduction, and a sprinkling of rosemary.

The gourmet touches extend to the menu?s hand-crafted sandwiches, which feature panko-crusted chicken and breaded eggplant tucked between toasted ciabatta, and sauce-slathered wings, which plunge into housemade blue-cheese dressing. Meals pair with more than 50 craft beer options from such breweries as Stone and Dogfish Head.

Chomp down on a Chicago-style thin-crust or new deep dish pizza loaded with cheeses imported from Italy and Wisconsin ($7.99–$14.99 for thin-crust or $10.99–$18.99 for deep dish) and covered with your choice of tasty toppings ($1.49 each), ranging from Italian sausage and Genoa salami to ethnically ambiguous tomatoes, green peppers, and anchovies. Lunch and dinner plates include comforting mouthfuls of smoked barbecue pulled pork ($7.99) and melt-iculously viscid five-cheese macaroni ($7.99 dinner), and suppertime combos ($11.99) pair the restaurant's signature rib-sticking rib racks with one of six other signature tastes (served with a garlic knot and choice of three sides).

The cooks at Cannoli Kitchen shepherd every plate from conception to consumption on the premises to fill their menu with fresh pizzas, pastas, and Italian desserts to feed parties of any size. Large tomato-basil pies ($17.99) eclipse tables and stars that are 18 inches in diameter, and pasta prisms of baked meat lasagna ($8.49) arrive flanked by a slice of garlic bread and a house salad or side of escarole and beans. Families can sit in or pick up spinach and broccoli stromboli ($6.49) and bubbling eggplant-parmesan subs ($6.99) to munch on in the comfort of their home. Crown meals with a toothsome top hat of creamy, chocolate-dipped cannoli ($2.79 each, $27 dozen). From the catering menu, a large tray of spaghetti marinara ($55) serves 10–12 hungry noodle twirlers, and orders of mozzarella sticks ($45) arrive in 50-piece increments to stock parties or edible Jenga tournaments.

Owner Jeff Cohen can still be found manning The Pizza Loft’s line more than 30 years after its inception, dishing up a menu of made-to-order Italian cuisine in an ultramodern kitchen wholly devoid of deep fryers and microwaves. Crafted by hand and topped with a robust homemade tomato sauce, the Loft’s piping panoply of pizzas is doughy shores bedecked with 100% real dairy mozzarella, fresh veggies, and hearty servings of sliced meatballs, ham, and sausage ($10.95+). Diners can scale the lasagna’s precarious layers, fixing pickaxes into its meat-packed peaks while scooping up the aromatic avalanche of a rich mushroom sauce ($11.95+). Plates of eggplant parmigiana, like Italy's organically grown supermodels, tastefully swathe themselves in stylish shrouds of spaghetti noodles ($13.95), and penne pasta dishes come sautéed-to-order in fragrant lochs of garlic butter or alfredo sauce ($9.95+).
