The sauce-filled strombolis, ensconce tasty treasure such as pepperoni, sausage, steak, and fresh garlic within a deliciously doughy embrace ($9.99–$15.99). For authentic Italic flavor, homemade pasta specialties, such as lasagna, ship taste buds back to the Old World with noodle sails, savory, beef cargo, and italian-sausage deckhands ($8.99).

Cuban sandwiches ($9) bridge hoagie-roll halves with roasted pork loin, honey-maple ham, monterey jack cheese, and a handful of suspension cables.
It was a bold idea?opening a restaurant in the midst of the Great Depression. But the founders were truly convinced that if they maintained a clean space with low prices and friendly service, they'd drum up more than enough business to support themselves. And on October 24, 1932, when Krystal's first customer walked out with six Krystals and a cup of coffee for 35 cents, the restaurant's remarkably successful run began.
More than 81 years later, Krystal reigns as one of the oldest fast-food brands in the country. Their namesake creation remains their biggest draw, snack-size burgers topped with diced onion, mustard, and pickle on a soft, square bun. Over the years they've added other hugely popular menu items, including breakfast scramblers and MilkQuakes made from 100% real ice cream. Even after eight decades, enthusiasm from customers has hardly cooled: Krystal gets so much fan mail, the staff have a Krystal Lovers Hall of Fame, for which inductees have their illustrated likeness printed on more than a million burger boxes.
Unsurprisingly, pizza is the main event at Moondoggy's Pizza and Pub. With both thin-crust and deep-dish options and dozens of toppings, there's something for every pizza lover?and that's before you even consider the specialty pies. The kitchen's creations include the Greek-influenced Chicken Athens, with sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, spinach, and feta. But you'd be remiss to stop there. The restaurant also offers spicy mussel fra diavolo and baked ziti topped with a layer of gooey cheese, as well as wealth of entertainment options. Chill out with live blues and soul, party with karaoke, or root for your favorite NFL teams.
