The butchers at AA Meats foster an old-school atmosphere in their meat market, serving up quality cuts the same way they have since 1955. Their selection encompasses traditional cuts such as flat iron steaks, boneless chicken thighs, and pork chops as well as more exotic items including ostrich patties, frog legs, and alligator. On top of their fresh cuts, the shop also boasts several types of jerky, pepperoni, and cheese to toss on burgers. Aside from buying a meat inspector costume, the best way to sample the shop's smorgasbord is with one of its locker packs, which range from simple breakfast packs all the way up to a 100-pound assortment made up of more than a dozen different types of meat.

Completed in 1869 with the final blow upon the golden spike, the first transcontinental railroad made nationwide travel commonplace, introducing passengers to seldom-experienced regions of their country. The Boxcar Grill’s traditional American fare gives diners the chance to taste transcontinental standards without leaving their seats. Using the locomotive as its logo, the restaurant celebrates the tradition of travel by featuring popular local dishes from across the United States. Avocados and wine make their way up from California, and chipotle peppers give dishes a southwestern kick without the need for spurs. Northeastern chowders bring East Coast flair, along with tastes of Philly in the form of the city’s popular cheesesteak.
