The menu at Austin Grill represents more than 20 years worth of authentic, time-tested Tex-Mex favorites seasoned with 15 different homemade salsas, sauces, and dressings. A belly-filling roadhouse burrito wraps a fresh flour tortilla around seasoned ground beef and beans, all topped with a drizzle of chili con queso and served with a side of rice ($11.99 at lunch, $11.49 at dinner). Put off cumbersome decision-making and sample the country western flavors of the Joe Ely Big Combo, a medley of a grilled chicken taco, a beef barbacoa enchilada with ancho chili sauce, and a hand-rolled chicken tamale topped with Texas chili ($14.99). A multi-colored Bevo Salad blends house greens, cotija cheese, black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, corn relish, and crispy tortilla strips in tangy cilantro-lime vinaigrette ($7.99 at lunch, $9.99 at dinner). Mosey in on the weekends to lasso southern brunch specials such as the Austin eggs benedict ($11.49) and cornmeal pancakes with eggs and bacon ($9.59). Diners with more particular palates can direct their eyes toward the lengthy gluten-free menu.

The flaming, hollering wing-eater painted across the front window at Wings To Go serves as a fair warning to guests: some of the sauces are spicy. Such sauces are listed on the menu under fitting monikers like "suicide", "homicide", and "bar-b-cide" with cheeky captions such as "only on a dare" or "seriously guys, this is not to be used as a substitute for contact lens solution—not even in an emergency." There is, however, an array of milder varieties—including a buttery golden garlic, a sweet honey mustard, and a tangy teriyaki—in the eatery's lineup of 18 signature sauces. Cooks shower these flavorful concoctions onto boneless and traditional buffalo wings, or serve them as dipping sauces alongside crispy tenders and shrimp. They can also whip up seven varieties of chicken sandwiches, as well as philly cheesesteaks with onions and peppers.

Diners can enjoy meals perched on stools in the bright, cozy eatery, or opt for takeout to enjoy wings in the comfort of their home or office via online ordering.

In 1991, tired of sating their late-night delivery cravings with pizza, University of Florida pals Matt Friedman and Adam Scott concocted an alternative snack in their frat house's kitchen. Many hours and tweaked sauce recipes later, the duo dispensed their brand of buffalo wings to the university’s students, selling out their stock in the first two nights. Since relocating from the frat house to its two original Gainesville storefronts, Wing Zone has opened nearly 100 locations nationwide, supplying wing lovers with boneless bites slathered in 15 award-winning flavors, including nuclear habañero, garlic parm, and blue buffalo. Three of the pair’s sauces have garnered awards at the National Buffalo Wing Festival, which recently inducted Adam and Scott into the Buffalo Wing “Hall of Flame,” where they share reigniting duty every time a strong breeze extinguishes its symbolic eternal flame.

At Listrani's, perhaps the most impressive thing about the menu is the depth of the specialty entree selection. Among more than 20 main dishes available, Shrimp alexandra pops out—a dish sauteed with sun-dried tomato and served atop linguine. For the pastas, alternatively, diners choose from five different sauces, among them a spicy tomato and an alfredo made with fresh cream. But one would be remissed not to call out Listrani's pizzas, which start with a base of fresh dough and house-special tomato sauce, before being topped with caramelized onions, capicolla ham, or kalamata olives, to name a few. There are 10 specialty pizzas baked in all, still not enough to satisfy one Ninja Turtle for a single lunch, but not bad for most human guests.
