At Pit Boss Bar-B-Q, oak-fueled flames sear slabs of meat, sealing in their natural juices and imparting a distinctive smoky flavor. To season meats, chefs draw inspiration from numerous barbecue traditions across the South. They slather pork and beef with vinegar-based sauce for sandwiches in the North Carolina style, and they top chopped barbecue beef with grilled onions and cheese for a taste of the southwest. And because a trip to a smokehouse would be incomplete without sampling some homestyle sides, Pit Boss rounds out platters with baked beans, fried okra, red-skinned-potato salad, collard greens, and more. Additionally, chefs offer their culinary creations to celebrations and drawn-out court arraignments, gladly customizing catering menus to suit partygoers’ tastes.
Servers at 5 Boroughs Sports Bistro bear the menu's heaping platters of juicy burgers, sauce-slathered wings, and deep-fried appetizers, delivering them to diners relaxing beneath the bar’s bank of flat-screen TVs. For starters, jumbo ($7.49–$34.99) or boneless wings ($7.49–$11.99) get caught in a shower of mild, hot, meltdown, barbecue, and garlic sauces before taking refuge beneath blue-cheese and celery-stick shelters. Then, take a bite out of the Big Apple burger's Angus beef patty ($7.49), topped with grilled onions, bacon, swiss cheese, caramelized apple slices, and the deep-fried daydreams of several New York Yankees. Chefs soak the 10-ounce marinated flank steak ($10.99) in a regal citrus-spice marinade before crowning it with grilled onions, and the chili-mac casserole ($9.99) bakes Roger's signature chili and homemade macaroni and cheese to a bubbling golden brown beneath a toasty blanket of breadcrumbs.
Every single thing on the menu at Country Cafe is made from scratch. At breakfast, the kitchen griddles up pancakes and folds cheese and veggies into omelets?all made even better before 9 a.m., when servers pour free cups of coffee for all their patrons. Later in the day, diners dig into plates loaded with country-style cooking. The crisp breading of the country-fried chicken stands up against a deluge of white gravy, and the homemade meatloaf is as warm and familiar as that crib you sleep in whenever you visit your parents.
The grams of protein add up at Kally K's Steakery & Fishery, where the staff serves a surfeit of burgers, seafood, and steaks. Though the menus at the eatery's two locations differ slightly, they both showcase salmon, shrimp, sole, crab, scrod, and hefty portions of new york strip steak and roast prime rib of beef. The Spring Hill location's specialty is a baked fillet of flounder stuffed with shrimp and crabmeat au gratin. Both locations feature a salad bar for patrons who are 1/16 brontosaurus.
