Chef Lee Linton has sliced, diced, and sizzled up countless gourmet dishes for more than 30 years. He combines this hefty culinary experience with his passion for nutrition to craft 1,200- and 1,800-calorie meal plans designed to help health-conscious eaters like himself stay in tiptop shape without sacrificing taste or quality. Linton only uses fresh ingredients, shying away from the frozen, dehydrated, or astronaut-friendly ones often used in other premade meals. The menu, which is approved by an on-staff dietitian, rotates regularly, and meets the guidelines set by the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the American Cancer Society. After Chef Linton and his team prepare the dishes within a USDA-approved kitchen, they’ll ship the meals directly to clients’ homes or prep them for pickup at one of Fresh ‘n Fit’s 37 locations.

Blue Moon Pizza's menu of clever, tempting entrees, including its crispy, thin-crust pizza and creative salads, has propelled the restaurant to the top of the pizza food pyramid. Boggle your seas with a Mediterribbean jerk-chicken pizza ($10.79 for personal), topped with caramelized onions and cayenne-candied bacon, or try to tame the spicy flavors of the Luna ($19.49 for medium), with chorizo sausage, black olives, and jalapenos. Other signature items include Grandma's Pizza ($24.99), a 16" Sicilian-style pie topped with cheese, olive oil, plum tomatoes, sliced garlic, and fresh basil, and the cobb salad ($10.49) served on pizza dough with chicken, avocado, cayenne-candied bacon, crumbled blue cheese, onions, black olives, and roma tomatoes. If the creative entrees leave any gastric gaps, a warm chocolate-chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream ($4.99) should help achieve maximum satiation, or gargle your dessert with a cheesecake martini, concocted with Cruzan vanilla rum, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice (specialty martinis are $6 on Thursdays). Blue Moon also has a gluten-free menu. Lunchtime drop-ins can take advantage of Blue Moon's lunch special: two slices of cheese pizza and soda for $4.99.
Village Taqueria & Tequila Bar, formerly known as Lime Taqueria, balances a menu of tacos, burritos, and Mexican entrees with tangy sips from the large tequila and cocktail list and rakes in praise from publications such as the Marietta Daily Journal. Chef Oscar Mendivil runs the kitchen, where he perfects the culinary art of tacos with perfectly braised barbacoa, fire-roasted poblano chilies, and grilled shrimp. The burrito de langosta—packed with sautéed lobster and manchego grits—makes fancy fare portable without the mess of wrapping crème brûlée in a sheet of gold leaf. A dozen margaritas and Latin cocktails grace the drink menu, sharing space with nearly 100 types of tequila.
Every day, Rita's serves up fresh, fruitified Italian ice (around $1.89–$2.89) in more than 30 flavors (several are sugar-free), including strawberry, root beer, Swedish Fish, chocolate chocolate chip, piña colada, vanilla, key lime, and the unearthly RitaBerrious (formerly Mystery Ice). Along with creamy ice, Rita's also sells icy cream. Case in point: Rita's famously frozen old-fashioned custard (around $2.49–$3.59), a robust dish that—like revenge—is best served cold in a cup, cone, or overflowing El Camino truck bed. Rita's custard involves a different freezing process than ice cream and boasts a higher egg to yolk ratio, for a creamy texture that makes regular ice cream feel like gravel sprinkled with sandpaper shreds. Rita's most popular frozen treat, gelati (around $3.45–$4.39), takes its cue from brunch, twilight, and sporks and blends two great things to create an even greater thing—in this case, the flavorful variety of Italian ice with the smoothitude of frozen custard. Rita's also offers an assortment of specialty Misto shakes ($3.49–$3.99), fat-free soft-serve Slenderitas ($2.49–$3.49), and frozen-coffee Ritaccinos ($4.25), all of which make for a tasty treat as well as a deliciously soothing topical treatment for chicken pox.
