Sonic Drive-in boasts a hunger-obliterating menu of burgers, coneys, shakes, and more—all delivered straight to your horseless carriage by gracefully roller-skating carhops. Settle burger-craving stomachs with a supersonic cheeseburger ($4.19), and craft a creative meal out of sides like mozzarella sticks (five for $2.99), chili cheese tots ($2.59), ched' r' peppers' ($2.99), and onion rings ($2.19/large), which, like engagement rings, symbolize love and taste better dipped in ketchup. Cleanse your crumb-covered palate with a Sonic signature limeade ($2.09/medium) or a slush ($1.89/medium) in any combo of classic flavors like cherry, grape, watermelon, orange, or quantum particle, which tastes like everything yet strangely nothing. Once you've ordered from the comfy confines of your car or decommissioned lunar module, your all-American feast will arrive balanced atop the head of your roller-butler just in time to catch you tearfully singing along to "Forever Young." Customers are welcome to feast in their cars or savor their selections on Sonic's outdoor patio.

Bruegger's Bagels traces its origins back to 1983, when founders Nord Brue and Mike Dressell began using their years of experience under a professional bagel baker to start their own business. In the early '80s, bagels were relatively unknown to most Americans, rarely seen outside of their natural habitats: Big Apple delis and free-range bagel grazing grounds. At the spearhead of introducing the breakfast delicacy to the world at large, Bruegger's grew locations in 26 states, winning a loyal customer base with crispy, chewy bagels kettle boiled and stone-oven baked fresh each morning.

Today, guests still smear the piping-hot circles with hummus, jelly, or rich vermont cream cheese or sink their teeth into anytime breakfast bagel sandwiches of smoked salmon and ham and egg. At lunchtime, bagels fill up with thai peanut chicken, refueling diners along with paninis stuffed with roast beef and horseradish. Healthy, substantial salads tempt palates with morsels of fresh mozzarella cheese, tender grilled chicken, and crispy cucumbers and greens, and sustainably sourced coffee drinks such as the blended mocha Brueggaccino make for tasty, sweet notes to meals.

At Noah?s Antica Pizzeria, pizzaiolos understand that, sometimes, brevity is the soul of good pizza, too. They slide their pies?constructed from Caputo flour dough, San Marzano tomatoes grown in the volcanic soil surrounding Mt. Vesuvius, and locally grown organic herbs?into their wood-fired brick oven for just 90 seconds. If that seems too brief a time for so noble an assemblage, what emerges from the 900-degree heat quickly proves otherwise. Just a minute and a half is enough time to bake authentic Neapolitan pizza to its ideal state: burnt and crispy on the edges but wet and soft in the middle??kissed by the flames,? as the local saying goes. Each entry on the menu holds a unique combination of additions within its delicately flame-seared folds, such as the Pizza del Cafone?s italian sausage, broccoli rabe, and smoked mozzarella or the medley of seven grilled vegetables along with smoked mozzarella and garlic on the Pizza Grigliata Vegetali.

It's pretty easy to fill up at Finz Seafood House (also known as Steak Masters). Prime rib smothered in mushroom gravy, parmesan-crusted whitefish, and locally caught baby catfish are just three of the hearty American entrees that anchor the menu. And that's before diners even choose sides such as twice-baked potatoes or shareable appetizers of seafood nachos.?

There are ample rewards for leaving room for dessert, though?especially on nights when bananas foster is on the bill. For this dessert, a chef comes to the table and sets a liqueur syrup aflame to create a dazzling display. Occasionally, live musicians also add to the entertainment out on the patio, though their acts incorporate slightly less fire.
