The chefs at Mr. Chen's Authentic Chinese Cooking serve up classic stir-fries, noodles, and rice dishes using fresh ingredients and the diner’s desired level of spice. To wash it all down, they whip up iced milk teas spiked with tapioca or good luck.
More than 60 frothy craft suds cascade across 3 Brothers Deli and Brewhouse's menu, which is replete with deli sandwiches and comfort cuisine served alongside a nightly lineup of live music, competitive trivia, and art shows. Dining companions can divvy up the deli sampler platter’s array of signature fresh-cut chips and dip, pretzels, pickles, cheese, and Shortstop wings slathered in one of six spicy sauces. Perfect for melting the spice-depraved hearts of taste buds and advancing armies of abominable snowmen, the Fireball fritters encase italian sausage, cream cheese, and a top-secret blend of Old World ingredients, preluding palates for one of five piping-hot pasta plates. Hulking hoagies tag team taste buds in the form of classic deli sandwiches such as the hot buttered philly cheese, whose clean-cut onions and mushrooms make it the ideal suitor for those bottles of Left Hand Milk Stout too often charmed by salty bowls of peanuts who only leave them feeling empty inside. Imbibers can cycle through more than 60 beers on a menu laden with lagers, amber ales, and wheats, as well as such seasonal suds as Foster’s Oil Can and Dogfish Head Chicory.

Crafting notably delectable frozen treats in small batches, Marble Slab Creamery uses high-quality ingredients and makes all of its treats and waffle cones on-site to percolate palates with super-premium ice cream. Just like tax forms, chef-inspired concoctions are prepared on frozen marble slabs to ensure optimal freshness and easy customization. Customize ice cream creations by choosing one of Marble Slab's original ice-cream flavors, which include cheesecake, birthday cake, banana, butter pecan, and double dark chocolate (flavors vary by location). Then, one of the expert mixers will gently incorporate your choice of candy, nuts, fruit, or enthusiasm into the ice cream before placing the freshly kneaded delight into a cup or freshly baked waffle cone.
Unlike jerk-chicken pudding or fried-tuna Twinkies, ice cream makes for a delectable dessert that properly caps off any meal. At MaggieMoo’s Ice Cream and Treatery, patrons can sample a huge menu of ice cream and other treats that are sure to slap a smile on any face and massage taste buds with sugary strokes. Try ice cream in flavor combinations such as Strawberry Skateboard with sprinkles, gummy bears, and marshmallows, or Cotton Candy Ski Jump with M&Ms and marshmallows. With one mix-in, prices range from $2.99 to $4.99 for a cup or cone, $3.99 for a pint, and $6.99 for a quart. Ice-cream cupcakes ($8.95 per 4-pack) can be enjoyed with a spoon or spoon-fingers. Dream cakes ($19.99+), on the other hand, come in appropriately oneiric flavors such as Pecan Perfection and Strawberry Cheesecream, and most are available in six-inch, eight-inch, and sheet-cake sizes. Health-conscious hedonists can indulge in strawberry-banana, mango, and mocha smoothies (starting at $3.95), whereas ice-cream pizzas ($19.95+) topped with white-chocolate curls will perplex pizza-party attendees before blasting away reservations with deliciousness.
At Otter’s Chicken Tenders, patrons can chow down on chicken that's hand-breaded and never frozen. The family-friendly restaurant boasts 101 ways to eat chicken—43 more than the ways to eat pudding and 100 more than the ways to munch on highbrow caviar. Try these myriad variations with menu items such as Otter's chicken boxes, which are served with fries and a choice of sauce: Otter's sauce, barbecue sauce, spicy buffalo sauce, ranch, or honey mustard. The homemade chicken salad box meal ($5.99) can be served on wheat bread or in a wrap, while the chicken sandwich box ($6.79) bookends departed cluckers with a seeded bun. Other items include a seven-piece tenders basket with Texas toast ($9.99), a chicken wrap ($5.79), and a Caesar salad with chicken tenders ($7.49). Dive into an appetizer basket of fried pickles ($5.29 for the full order) without taking a dip in the neighbor’s backyard dill-pickle pool, or streak by on a buzz-inducing Slip 'n Slide with domestic ($3) and import ($3.50) beers.
