Owners Monica Webb, Helena Thornfeldt, and Deborah Schjodt, a trio of former professional athletes, foster their life-long love of competition with 10 Diamond tables and replenish nutrients with inspired American fare. Dominate on the sweeping emerald, fueled by a full bar with more than nine taps and unlimited cue sharpenings. The menu, a profusion of time-tested fodder, includes wings tossed in 11 different sauces ($7.49 for 10), the classic Stix burger ($6.99), and the Sledgehammer sandwich, a soaring duet of salami and roast beef accompanied by warm provolone baritone ($7.99). Pizza rolls encase troves of toppings, such as ham, jalapeños, and bacon, in a hearty, hand-tossed crust ($6.99), much like Chef Boyardee smuggles secret recipes in his hat.
On select Thursdays at Chillerz Frozen Yogurt, dessert is free. Okay, there's one catch—you have to guess the exact weight of your frozen yogurt creation, then it's free. With all the flavors and fixings available, it's rare that any one of those treats will look the same. Rotating yogurt flavors range from classics like dreamy dark chocolate to more unusual options, such as butter toffee popcorn and spiced apple pie.
Chillerz's self-serve machines have some health-conscious flavors, too, such as non-fat strawberry and orange sorbets. Each cup of yogurt can be enjoyed plain or smothered beneath toppings from a buffet stocked with myriad candies and fruits. Once their treats are all gone, youngsters are invited to draw on Chillerz's chalkboard wall, a nice alternative to practicing their graffiti tags on Chillerz's other walls.
Marvin's Garden blast-freezes and packages fine meat and poultry to seal in flavor and freshness for up to six months from the date of purchase. Restaurant-quality dishes are delivered straight to each customer’s novelty doormat, enabling them to forge feasts of hearty ham, Angus filets, and sushi-grade seafood. Marvin's chefs also simplify party planning by crafting 50-portion packs of gourmet hors d'oeuvres, such as bacon-wrapped scallops and petite quiches.
Marvin's Garden ensures the freshness of its meat through blast freezing, which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze flesh in seconds and lock in juices. Meats are sealed in Cryovac packaging to protect them from bacterial cultures and pop-culture trivia.
Grand Slam Pizza's resident dough designers crown pies with 17 assorted toppings before baking them into bubbling, cheesy teething toys. Diners can thumb through the menu to test it for potential scratch-and-sniff capabilities and to select one of many specialty pizzas, such as the bacon cheeseburger, a delectable combination of crumbled hamburger, bacon, and mozzarella cheese (16", $14.99). Diners can also craft their own pies (16", $9.99) by mixing toppings ($1.25 each) as diverse as ham, black or green olives, sausage, and mushrooms. An order of 10 hot wings ($5.99) offers warmth to tongues cold from cleaning the freezer, and cinnamon stix with icing ($3.99) ensure that meals end as sweetly as a collision with an ice-cream truck.
