Part sports bar, part fine-dining restaurant, Rockwell’s Bar and Grill offers a full bar and first-class menu of classic American cuisine. Start an appetizer of buffalo wings ($7.95) in mild, medium, hot, or barbecue, to prime a meal pump, and move ravenously onward to one of Rockwell’s mainstays, such as the big-sizzle fajitas with chicken, steak, or shrimp ($14.95–$16.95), or the hot alaskan, pan-seared salmon served between risotto cake and tomato-artichoke ragout stew ($18.95). Steak lovers will savor the spice-rubbed 14-ounce Texas flat iron beside bacon-cheddar mashed potatoes ($19.95), and Rockwell’s Burger Challenge puts burger bellies to the test with six 8-ounce patties topped with a choice of cheese and a 30-minute time limit ($29.95). Defeat all that meat and it’s free; run out of time with remaining bovine and head home with a hefty to-go box.
The chefs at Lo Piccolo's Pizzeria and Restaurant specialize in thin and crispy New York–style pies, but they make a mean Chicago-style deep dish and thick Sicilian pizza as well. Specialty pies hold a variety of fresh toppings that range from the classic napolitano spread to a crust crowned with breaded chicken cutlets, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, and ranch dressing. The menu offers other Italian specialties, too, including veal parmesan and pasta doused in marinara, vodka sauce, or Nickelodeon slime.
Singas Pizza's chefs calm restless appetites by singing sauce-speckled lullabies from a menu of pizzas, pillowy pastas, sandwiches, wings, and burgers. Tuck teeth into 360 degrees of gustatory bliss with one of Singas's 10-inch pies, crowned with toppings that range from traditional pepperoni or sausage ($5.99) to less-orthodox accents including breaded eggplant ($6.99), buffalo chicken ($6.99), and anti-cheese. Singas's heaping bowls of spaghetti come in seven varieties ($5.49+), warming stomachs with a swirling array of old-world flavors with toppings including sweet italian sausage, creamy garlic sauce, and mushrooms. Palates pining for bread-ensconced eats can opt for a hot pastrami sandwich ($6.49), which smuggles sizzling meat, onions, and green peppers under a veil of melted provolone cheese.
