Hickory Ranch Steak House takes the steak in its name seriously. All of the steaks here are certified 100% USDA-choice Angus beef, and so are the burgers?the Black Label burger, for example, consists of a blend of Angus cuts, including short rib. The rest of the menu focuses on seafood and hearty meat dishes, from beer-battered or grilled shrimp to rotisserie chicken and spare ribs rubbed in a Texas spice blend. Frosty margaritas and bottled American craft beers pair well with the savory plates. As for entertainment, the restaurant's big-screen TV often shows extreme sports, such as motocross and basketball games where the players don't wear helmets.
Across the 20 lanes at Universal Strike Bowling Center, the rolling thrum of bowling balls prefaces the clattering of pins. As guests hunt strikes and spares, automated scoring tallies each felled pin, and pours of beer and platters of pizza from the sports bar sate competitors' appetites.
Away from the lanes, Universal Strike Bowling Center houses other venues for friendly competition, including a large arcade, and pool tables. In three banquet halls that can host up to 500 guests, the sprawling facility puts on wedding receptions, corporate gatherings, quinceañeras, and other festive events.
At Naim's Lounge, the chatter of friendly conversation mingles with wisps of fragrant hookah smoke, melting away workday stresses in the midst of friendly company. Guests puff on Lebanese pipes, surrounded by burbling fountains, televisions, and cozy sectioned couches.
Using only a loop of cotton thread and a careful eye, the threading specialists at The Brow Shop lift away unwanted hair. They can shape brows into clean arches, defuzz any part of the face, and even thread the arms, leaving them smooth and bare. The process is well suited for sensitive skin, as it adheres directly to hairs rather than to the flesh that surrounds them. Visitors to the salon can also find powders and gels to tint the brows and hold them in place.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
We have the best flatbreads, paninis, and sliders. Our chef does an amazing job in the kitchen. We also have a very popular appetizer called Kibbles 'n' Bits. It's our beer-braised pulled pork with cheese, onions, bell peppers, green onions, and tomatoes topped with our barbecue sauce and sour cream. It's a must-try when you come to the brewery.
Has your business won any awards?
We have won awards. Last year our honey rye won best light beer at the Monte Carlo night at Wilson Creek Winery.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Bulldog Brewery is a family owned and operated brewery. We love what we do here and we really enjoy talking to our customers and making their experience great. We are a unique brewery because we do understand that beer might not be everyone's thing, and because of that we offer local wine and our delicious housemade sangria. Bulldog is not just a tasting room, it's a place where you can spend your night having fun with your family and friends, watch your favorite sports team, or celebrate an occasion. We would personally like to invite you to stop by and enjoy a brew or two.
