Mississippi Mudds invites families and foodies alike to stop in and enjoy beloved regional fare such as Sahlen's hot dogs, burgers, sammies, and hand-cut sweet fries. Guests can pull up a chair amid the restaurant's nautical-themed setting and peruse the menu of classic comfort fare before deciding on the cheeseburger ($2.99) or sweet potato fries ($3.99). The charbroiled hot dog can be hidden in a friend’s purse to throw off pursuing bloodhounds ($2.59); the pride of Mississippi Mudds, the chicken breast sandwich, features five ounces of boneless bliss hugged by a fresh Constanzo’s roll to send taste buds flying as high as a majestic flock of soaring ostriches ($6.29). Patrons can also stop in for a visit to indulge in one of seven specialty sandwiches, such as the BBQ pulled pork lathered in Mississippi Mudds's signature sauce ($5.49).
It should come as no surprise that pizza is a specialty at JUST PIZZA & Wing Co. The restaurant's cooks infuse specialty crusts with sesame seeds, lemon pepper, and other seasonings, pile on fresh cheese and toppings such as sirloin steak and tiger shrimp, and even bake whole-wheat and gluten-free pies. But contrary to its name, JUST PIZZA & Wing Co.'s menu doesn't end there—non-doughy options include chicken wings in a variety of sauces. Patrons can even explore possible wine pairings on JUST PIZZA & Wing Co.'s website.
Jim's Steakout serves up a classic lineup of philly cheesesteaks, hoagies, and chicken fingers, silencing rumbling stomachs from high noon to high moon by keeping 10 locations throughout western New York, including a new location opening on Niagara Falls Boulevard, serving up the American snacks into the wee hours. From lunchtime until as late as 2 a.m. or 5 a.m., each of Jim's outposts fills stingers—or hot subs—with steak and cheese, bacon, and combinations of italian sausage and other meats. Hoagies meet nearly every appetite with three sizes, ranging from a lunch-appropriate four-inch Kaiser roll to an Italian roll that reaches an entire foot long. Whichever size diners choose, they can get their roll stuffed with chicken, provolone, and sautéed spinach—known as the chicken-in-the-grass hoagie—or any number of other hot or cold ingredients. The menu also rolls out a red carpet for creative sides such as fries smothered in chopped steak and cheese, stuffed banana peppers, and fried mac 'n' cheese bites. To sweeten each classic meal, the kitchen fries up funnel cakes to order.
Family-owned and operated for more than 40 years, Mitchell's Tavern draws diners with beer, spirits, and a lengthy menu of freshly cooked pub fare. Its historic brick building, which is more than 70 years old, housed both a deli and the local fire department before transforming into the neighborhood tavern it is today. An outdoor patio shades rows of tabletops with umbrellas; inside, sports memorabilia and photographs crowd the walls as complimentary popcorn erupts from kettles and hearty roast beef sandwiches, hamburgers, and fried fish mingle with mugs of draft beer and mixed drinks. Happy hours and drink specials give wallets a break throughout the week—Mondays, for instance, bring half-priced bottles of Bud, and ladies night every Saturday treats ladies and gorillas in convincing cashmere gowns to $2 drinks and $4 cosmopolitans.: m]]
The aesthetically minded chefs at Orchid Asian Bistro serve up a sumptuous feast of Japanese and Thai cuisine from a menu of fresh sushi rolls and Asian entrees. Like the macaroni version of Starry Night, each meal is an edible work of art, pleasing eyes and palates with dishes such as the thai cashew chicken, an architecturally sound stack of chicken, mushrooms, sweet peas, and nuts ($13), or the Pineapple Passion, a dazzling medley of seafood, veggies, and fruit ($15).
Sushi Nagasaki fuses the cylindrical sensations of sushi with the spicy servings of Thailand, creating an alluring Asian-cuisine mixture. Appease even the most cantankerous of tongue receptors with the eel-and-cucumber-stuffed dragon roll, the California roll crested with fish roe, or the spicy tuna hand roll twined with lettuce and cooling cucumber (all priced at $8.95). Thai creations such as the evil red curry ($7.75), a sinful mix of bamboo shoots, green beans, coconut milk, and basil leaves. Or try the less devious yellow curry ($7.75), a combination of savory Thai spices, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, coconut milk, and onions that can readily fill torso purses with the sustenance needed to reach the paradoxically parallel high and low branches of the world tree. And the stir-fried broccoli ($7.75) places enough green stalks on your plate to create a micro-forest for a kind-hearted troll. All curries come with a choice of beef, chicken, pork, or shrimp for $1 extra.
