A country morning means Country Breakfast with omelettes ($7.50 to $8.75), french toast (two for $6.25), and bona fide biscuits and gravy ($6). Lunch features a variety soups, salads, country sandwiches such as the country-fried steak ($7.50) and a patty melt ($8), and country baskets, like a basket of chicken strips ($8.50) or battered fish ($7.75 for 1 piece). When the supper bell is struck with a supper hammer, the café's dinner menu emerges with a fleet of savory dishes. An 8-ounce rib eye steak ($11) can be accentuated by the company of four jumbo shrimp (for an additional $5.50), and a tender piece of chicken can be chicken-fried to become chicken-fried chicken ($10). Hydrate with a glass of sweet tea ($2.25), and top off the meal with piece of pie, cobbler, or apple dumpling.
La Fogata Cafe & Restaurant tantalizes taste buds with a menu of spicy Mexican cuisine balanced with American classics. Snack on the cheese-and-corn pairing of chilis rellenos, whose onion-stuffed poblano peppers dip their toes in egg batter then belly-flop into a frying pan full of tomato sauce ($6.75). Sautéed shrimp lounge quietly in garlic and a citrus-chipotle tomato sauce in the Devil's Tail ($8.99), and weekend barbecue-rib stacks double as mouth xylophones when chewed in the right order ($7.99). After strolling into La Fogata’s dining room, patrons can converse around alabaster tables and peer up at archways inlaid with sculpted swirls and spirals that hide a secret hot-sauce recipe in a language only dolphins understand.
When the neon lights illuminate the midnight sky of Las Vegas, the cooks at Monte's Pizza Restaurant are still hard at work. They dart about their kitchen, checking on saucepans of marinara and bubbling pots of angel hair pasta before showering dough in creamy ricotta cheese, fresh basil, and plump sausages and loading pies into fiery ovens. Others layer crusty rolls with meatballs, steak, and salami before turning their attention to juicy slabs of baby back ribs sizzling on grills. Throughout the week, this kitchen staff keeps late hours, making its restaurant a popular spot for late-night carousers or sleepwalkers dreaming of enchanted meatballs that will grant them eternal beauty.
For 30 years, the griddle gracers at Farmer Boys have lured hungry patrons in with made-to-order burgers, sandwiches, breakfasts, and the jaunty clanging of a real farmhouse bell. On the farmer's burger, a seeded bun wrangles two quarter-pound beef patties, and american cheese and thousand-island dressing trap renegade lettuce, tomato, dill pickles, avocado, and bacon in an engineering feat never before seen atop a regulation-sized bun ($5.49). Eschew prescribed meal options with a breakfast entree at any hour of the day, such as the breakfast burrito with chili, a flour inner-tube encasing eggs, hash browns, chili, and american cheese ($5.39). Salads such as the chicken barbecue ranch salad ($6.99) delectably sate lighter appetites, and the Reese's peanut-butter-cup milkshake renders the beloved candy drinkable at last ($3.59+).
