When he cofounded his first sandwich shop in 1965, 17-year-old Fred DeLuca planned to use his profits to pay his way through medical school. But the combination of quality ingredients and friendly service at the shop—then called Pete's Subway—proved so popular that nine years later, he and his partner found themselves in charge of 16 locations across Connecticut, and Fred left behind his doctoring plans for a career in business.
Today, Subway restaurants number over 34,000 around the world—almost as many shops as there are sightings of Elvis buying cold cuts. At each location, staffers pile sliced ham, marinara-slathered meatballs, and other fillings into halved loaves of bread before customizing handhelds with tomatoes, shredded lettuce, and other healthy toppings plucked from chilled containers behind the counter. Salads free crisp veggies from bread's overprotective embrace, and crunchy baked chips or apple slices accompany entrees to tables. Subway's website also facilitates health-conscious eating by listing each item's nutrition information and fastest mile time online.

Just as Thomas Edison stumbled through useless prototypes of light bulbs and movie cameras before perfecting the phonograph, the alchemists at Qdoba Mexican Grill took 47 attempts before landing on the franchise's signature blend of three cheeses, known simply as queso. That attention to detail still pervades every aspect of the menu, as employees spend hours each day chopping, dicing, and simmering the fresh ingredients that find their way into burritos, taco salads, and grilled quesadillas. Beyond the marinated bites of chicken, beef, and pork and hand-crafted tortillas, cooks protect their ripe, fragile avocados from harm by smashing them into batches of fluffy guacamole.
Mthai—located next to Scolari’s—is like a culinary ambassador for Thailand. Staples such as ginger-flavored stir-fries and five curries mix and mingle with American influence to the point that entirely new plates are born. The Mthai spaghetti, for instance, mixes noodles with chicken and basil leaves, and Americanized fried rice tops a medley of ham, sausage, and raisins with a sunny-side-up egg.
Still, anyone seeking authentic fare won't be disappointed. The owner sources her classic recipes from Thailand to create fresh pad see eew and steamed jumbo prawns. And to meet individual tastes and satisfy those who believe they've transformed into a lion, most dishes let diners choose their protein: chicken, pork, beef, tofu, seafood, or a combination.
When they graduated from the University of Nevada, the owners of Archie’s Giant Hamburgers & Breakfast didn’t move far. They planted their restaurant near their college campus, a short walk from Mackay Stadium, to suppress the hungry howls of students and locals with mammoth burgers and breakfast served around the clock.
Archie’s is split between two stories—a diner on the bottom and a memorabilia-packed sports bar on top. Exposed steel rafters and brushed metal walls absorb the game-day cheers that ricochet through the upper level equipped with plasma TVs, a pool table, and a jukebox. Below, forks dig through flapjacks amid ‘50s-style decor befitting of Grease, a film titled for the bacon fat teens once used to slick back their hair.
