Fat Duck's Pizza hearkens back to the days when pizza parlors ruled the roost for family outings. It's a place where kids work off energy and sharpen their hand-eye coordination on video games, while grownups show off their pool-shark skills and knock back pitchers of beer. And all the while, the entire family savors piping-hot pizzas without the threat of animatronic bluegrass bands.
Fat Duck's Pizza satiates all the senses with their array of food and entertainment. Pizzas made from fresh dough and topped with real cheese and a multitude of meats and vegetables await the hungry hordes. Pies come in standard sizes, but Fat Duck's claim to fame is their mammoth Team pizza. Seemingly invented on a dare, the Team pizza spans 24 inches, comes in 36 slices, and blushes when you call it "tiny." The menu also features comfort-food favorites such as oven-baked sandwiches, spicy chicken wings, and barbecue ribs?all perfect finger foods for fans to eat as they watch sports on giant TVs or guzzle domestic and imported brews.
Laguna Pizza’s ovens emit the appetizing aromas of freshly baked gourmet pizzas across an inviting, family-friendly dining room. Platters of pizzas showcase specialty toppings such as anchovy, artichoke hearts, linguiça, and pineapple, and a salad bar invites patrons to adorn leafy canvases with their chosen garnishes. A daily lunch buffet lets diners fill up and bask in belly-warming satisfaction, and Sunday- and Monday-night football specials emblazon HD televisions with games as customers sip wine and draft beer. The restaurant’s catering services furnishes pizza feasts and tableware for parties, meetings, and Bob Dole–impersonator conventions.
Sings 1978, Steve's Pizza has been slinging pies and parceling out slices that have become a staple of the community. The pizzeria sticks to a simple menu of pre-imagined or customized pizzas. Folks can mix-and-match topping combos that include cilantro, smoked gouda, and artichokes, or go for something like The Steve covered with just about any type of meat you can imagine and homemade red sauce. Steve's also creates pies with certified gluten-free crusts upon request.
It is not just the pastas, sandwiches, and pizzas that keep guests coming back to Pete's Restaurant and Brewhouse and Original Pete's—the handcrafted beers also play a major role, quenching thirsts with flavors ranging from the Uptown blonde’s light layers of honey to the highly hoppy profile of the Skinner’s Horse IPA. Pete’s team keeps meals in balance by offering food-and-beer-pairing suggestions, assuring diners that the Midtown ale harmonizes with fish tacos and that the Old Town red—a malty, medium-bodied amber ale—improves coordination for slam-dunking meatballs.
The first Cool River Pizza opened more than 10 years ago with a mission to serve handcrafted pies made from fresh ingredients and California cheese in a family-friendly environment. All of the dough is made fresh daily and each pizza sports Cool River's homemade sauce accented with more than seven herbs, spices, and umlauts. Over the years, Cool River Pizza has grown from a solo outfit to a family of restaurants in California and Indiana. Inside each location, televisions illuminate dining rooms packed with long wooden tables and board games for families to play while waiting for their orders.
For more than 30 years, the chefs of De Vinci’s Elk Grove have been hard at work perfecting the traditional Italian recipes that stock their deli counter. They begin every morning with their hands floury, crafting doughs that will form the base of housemade foccacia breads, cheese-filled ravioli, and custom sandwiches. Joined occasionally by a fluffy ravioli mascot in a toque, staff combine dishes into prearranged packages ready for the family dinner table or parcel out single dishes by the pint, quart, gallon, or 10-gallon hat.
