Brooklyn-style pizzas, traditional pastas, and seafood specialties sate ravenous appetites at Carlo's, where a gluten-free menu supplements the regular bill of fare. The pizza selection ranges from the Godfather pie—with seven types of cheeses and a deli counter's worth of meats such as prosciutto, capicola, and ham ($16–$24)—to the baked ziti pizza, a match made in Italy that heaps tenderly boiled ziti pasta and mozzarella onto a doughy platter ($14–$20). Carlo's 14-inch gluten-free pizza varietal comes laden with the muncher's choice of toppings and edible crypotgrams ($19+). Under the benevolent gaze of wall sconces, shrimp scampi ($9.95–$17.95) and mussels marinara ($8.95–$14.95) decorate tables with seafood, and the menu's pasta section fills plates with favorites such as the house's trademark vodka sauce with sun-dried tomatoes, draped over one of seven pastas including spaghetti, angel hair, and rigatoni ($6.95 for lunch; $11.95 for dinner).

Masala Kitchen’s chefs use a bevy of spices to craft an authentic Indian menu of vegetarian and meat dishes. Kick things off with a sizzling appetizer, such as assorted veg pakoras—seasonal vegetables fried into fritters—or chicken tikka kathi, which features shredded chicken sautéed and stuffed in thin bread. Forks or pocket-size augers then dig through entrees piled on mounds of rice, scooping herbivore-friendly fare such as yellow tadka dal—a heaping of lentils loaded with garlic, chopped onion, and cumin seeds. Meaty dishes include kadhai chicken that’s seasoned with curry pepper, cumin, and garlic, and kashmiri lamb roganjosh, a boneless slab of lamb dressed to the nines in decadent onion sauce. Alternatively, the buffet grants all-you-can-eat access to patrons looking to sample everything or simply indulge endlessly in a favorite, and allows them to marvel at bottomless soda glasses yet to be explained by man’s limited understanding of physics.

Every summer in the '50s and '60s, people from all over the region would flock to Point Pleasant, New Jersey, to relax on the beach, amble along the boardwalk, and devour one of the region's tastiest snacks. No, it wasn't the saltwater taffy that they came in droves for, but Mike's Subs' giant submarine sandwiches, which were still a relatively new invention. They also came for the mom-and-pop-shop experience—Mike prided himself on recognizing customers by name and shoe size and remembering which sandwich they each liked to order.

In the early '70s, high schooler Peter Cancro began working at Mike's Subs and fell in love with both the food and the customers. So when he overheard the owner talking about selling the business, Cancro decided that he would do whatever it took to buy the shop. He approached his football coach, a banker by day, and asked for a loan. The coach agreed and Cancro became the owner of Mike's at the age of 17.

Over the next decade he opened a few more local shops. In 1987, he changed the name to Jersey Mike's Subs and began franchising the popular restaurant so people wouldn't have to drive to the Jersey Shore to get the subs that they loved. Today, Jersey Mike's still serves submarine sandwiches Mike's Way—with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, oil, vinegar, and spices.
