The crust is the first thing that hits the tongue of a pizza eater (unless they're eating upside down). The foundation of all relatives of the pie family, the dough that makes that crust determines the difference between a one-time chew or lifelong romance. There's loving care, and perhaps even magic, in the dough of Papa Joe's Pizza. Always homemade?a rare quality in the modern premade era?that dough possesses a personality, piquant charm, and irrefutably fresh taste that has lured the diners of Vermillion and beyond into a endless courtship since 1972. Ranging in size from personal 7-inch pies to tabletop-toppling 26"x18" party pizzas, Papa Joe's handcrafted concoctions are baked to the perfect balance of crunch and caress, and come loaded with whatever meats and vegetables the heart desires.
That handcrafted, family-made touch extends to the rest of Papa Joe's menu, featuring comforting subs on homemade buns, Mama Joe's fruit and cream pies, and a slew of succulent surprises such as broasted chicken, pierogis, and take-home dishes such as chicken paprikash and beef stew. The homey feel of the food is accentuated by the restaurant's own homey storefront in one of Vermillion's oldest buildings, which holds structural hands with the adjoining breakfast/dessert destination of Granny Joe's Ice Creamatorium.
Domino’s has been decorating dough canvases with flavorful sauces, an assortment of cheeses, and high-quality toppings that range from classic to unconventional since 1960. Domino’s dough is tossed daily and stretched by human hands, not by clumsy catapults and model airplanes flying in opposite directions. Treat friends to a tasteful feast by checking the online menu and crafting a custom masterpizza with Domino's wide range of ingredients. Famished diners too starved to choose their own toppings can select from Domino’s American Legends, featuring signature flavors from throughout the land. Pizzas such as the Pacific Veggie, Honolulu Hawaiian, or Wisconsin 6 Cheese impart all the delicious diversity of a road trip without the hassle of decoding an atlas. Nonpizza fare includes pastas, sandwiches, and breadsticks.
The environmentally conscious chefs at Tree Hugger's Cafe unite locally sourced organic ingredients into healthy, flavorful fare that respects Mother Nature. Every dish on the eco-friendly menu comes free of hormones, pesticides, and plastic fruit, and many are also vegetarian, vegan, raw, or gluten-free. They also serve dishes made with organic beef, chicken, and seafood. Paninis cram fillings such as grilled eggplant and homemade pesto between slices of fresh artisan bread, and burgers mash up such ingredients as organic chicken and feta or sweet potato and quinoa. Breakfast dishes include house-made granola, muffins, and mixed-berry couscous. Tree Hugger's Cafe tries to reduce its carbon footprint by using compostable containers, blowing kisses to clouds, and outfitting the caf?'s interior in recycled decor.
Armando's Pizza has been flipping fresh-made dough and perfecting Old World recipes since 1967. Nibble passionately with a diverse menu of appetizers from flatbread bruschetta ($6.95) to original-recipe dusted wings in a choice of sauce ($9.95). Hand-tossed dough plays canvas to 13 signature pizzas as deliciously as hand-tossed canvases of artist-rendered pies. Fresh tomatoes, italian sausage, roasted peppers, Uniondale mozzarella, and red onion comprise the Sicilian ($11.95), and shrimp, scallops, and calamari jump from the sea to the pizza di mare's doughy deck ($14.95). Entrees like gnocchi a la vodka ($12.95) and veal porcini ($15.95), induce salivation, and slow-cooked baby-back ribs ($19.95) bring a finger-licking element to date nights. Sandwiches, panzerotti, and desserts complement the menu, giving it a range more extensive than a basso-soprano's Pavarotti figurine collection.
For 35 years, Hot Dog Heaven’s grill masters have crafted a menu fit to bust with flame-licked, condiment-topped meats. All-beef hot dogs ($2.99) gussy up like cylindrical socialites in à la carte accessories, such as homemade chili sauce and onions, or don preselected medleys including The Clevelander’s cheese, kraut, slaw, and bacon (add $0.35). Juicy hamburgers ($1.99 for single; $2.99 for double) can bask in the same topping treatment as their tube-shaped brethren. Six mini corn dogs ($3.79) present an ovation-worthy opening act, often inviting backup from fresh-cut fries ($2.79 for small; $3.79 for medium) that jackknife out of canola oil into a cup of prized chili ($2.79).
