Cherry Street Grille specializes in omelets, with 101 different varieties flipping from frying pans seven days a week and 24 hours a day on Fridays and Saturdays. Each omelet contains four eggs with flavor combinations that range from the classic denver to a chili, cheese, and onion concoction. Sweeter options include an omelet with bananas, chocolate, and peanut butter. Gravy-slathered biscuits constitute an alternative breakfast, as do massive pancakes the size of a typical medium pizza, dubbed “Mancakes” based on their macho size rather than their ability to sprout five o’clock shadows. Burgers and fried chicken sandwiches complement breakfast fare, as do succulent 10- and 14-ounce slabs of prime rib.

The towering street-side sign at The Roadhouse shines like a beacon onto a full bar and restaurant with a menu that plays off comfort-fare conventions and spice-steeped Cajun traditions. Drinks leave cool circles on tables as patrons circulate during special events such as ladies' night, and LCD televisions broadcast big games.

A giant American flag subtly waves hello to patrons from its post high above a fleet of tables, and farming tools plant themselves firmly on a wall inside JoDean's Steakhouse and Lounge. The patriotic theme extends to the kitchen, where chefs grill, fry, and steam USDA Certified Choice steaks, fresh seafood, and sandwiches. More than 50 feet of covered islands emit puffs of steam during daily buffets, including everything from sirloin tips and all-you-can-eat crab legs to Sunday-morning ham-and-cheese omelets. Inside the dining room, framed prints by Bob Byerley adorn the wall, and the lounge boasts a hearty wooden bar where dates can enjoy libations and small talk about acid rain. A number of banquet rooms are available for parties of up to 250 people, and the parking lot can watch buses, RVs, and small aircraft as owners dine.

Not content to recline on the edible laurels of their circular masterworks, the Tomacelli's kitchen team rounds out the menu with piping-hot pasta dishes and fresh salads.

Reflecting its Spartan, all-business ambience, Dan’s Pizza keeps the focus on its menu of New York–style pizza—crispy, thin-crust medleys of sauce, cheese, and dough in delicious disk form. The bacon cheeseburger pie ($17.95 for a large) delivers the ingredients of a topping-laden burger in a convenient vehicle that allows multiple mouths to savor it without accidentally kissing. The all-meat special packs pepperoni, hamburger, sausage, canadian bacon, and american bacon into one circle of carnivorous joy ($17.95 for a large).

More than 40 years ago, Harry J. Hoenselaar chose individual hams, cured them in his secret marinade, and smoked them over hardwood chips before offsetting the earthy flavor with a crisp, sweet glaze. To this day, the staff still makes the signature bone-in hams one at a time and glazes them in the shop. In addition to the eponymous victuals, the ham denizens turn their braising prowess on similarly delightful platter toppers, including turkey and barbecued pork.

The hammery's kitchens also whip up classic side dishes and desserts, such as the sweet-potato soufflé. For less formal feasting, party trays and packed lunch boxes fuel business meetings, backyard grad parties, and lengthy end-zone celebrations.
