The exterior of 1st Choice Pizza & Curry is somewhat non-descript; they let their unique blend of Italian and Indian foods define who they are. The fragrant spices of traditional Indian biryanis and curries mix with the smell of fresh pizza inside. Indian dishes come with add-ons such as boneless chicken or seasoned vegetables, and pizzas can get topped with barbecue sauce and chicken. There’s even a build-your-own gluten-free pizza option, which you can deck out with artichoke hearts and pineapple. Speciality drinks like the mango lassi and desert options like gulab jamun and soft serve in eight flavors round out the eclectic menu.
And while the Elk Grove eatery does have two separate menus for their two main food types, they also offer a handful of fusion items. Try the mango tango pizza, which has spiced mangos and spicy mango curry sauce paired with mozzarella cheese and cannolis; wash it down with a cold beer or a glass of wine.
Cheesesteak historians trace the sandwich's ancestry back to Pat Oliveri, a Philadelphian who combined sliced beef and onions over a Italian roll; once someone made the ingenious decision to add cheese, the classic combination was born. Today, Cheese Steak Restaurant's sandwich-smiths continue that noble tradition with more than 30 cheesesteak varieties.
Take your pick of either the classic, a chicken version, or a hoagie-style cheesesteak (topped with lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise), and you have the option to pile it with grilled onions, hot cherry peppers, or sweet bell peppers. Other varieties feature added ingredients such as roasted cloves or garlic, mushrooms, or teriyaki sauce. There's also a veggie-only option, and diners can order twister fries, steak fries, fried mushrooms, and zucchini sticks to as a side dish or in case they need edible confetti for a chef's birthday party.
Logan's Roadhouse began as a simple celebration of barbecue and meat in Lexington, Kentucky. The theme resonated with diners, and the restaurant quickly multiplied from one kitchen to 230 company-operated locations and 26 franchises, spread across 23 states. At every location, the eatery retains its original Southern charm, calling bottled beers "ice-cold longnecks" and serving more than 50 entrees, such as aged, wood-grilled steaks with mesquite flavorings. Logan's Roadhouse also has a few other signature items, including made-from-scratch yeast rolls and bottomless buckets of in-shell peanuts. And, like any classic roadhouse, Logan's slings all manner of specialty drinks, including prickly pear margaritas and Roadhouse Tea made with Ole Smoky Tennessee White Lightning Moonshine.
The yellow and blue walls at Sol Mexican Restaurant showcase a festive collection of artistic metalwork and desert-themed sculptures, which evoke a festive, welcoming energy. Founded by the Gonzalez family, the eatery demonstrates a commitment to Mexican flavors by tempting diners with a menu of traditional, home-style cooking. In addition to making fiery salsas in-house and toasting each tortilla chip with a hyper-focused magnifying glass, the chefs show their fondness for the time-honored classics by glazing enchiladas with a complex, spicy-sweet mole sauce, slow-roasting marinated pork in a signature blend of seasonings, and stuffing tacos with everything from carnitas to carne asada.
The grill masters at Cheese Steak Shop build culinary care packages of tri-tip sirloin and tender chicken breast, bedecked with classic and creative Philly-style toppings. The classic Philly nestles a bevy of steak or chicken alongside grilled onion and hot or sweet peppers, while the deluxe upgrades the sandwich mainstay with pizza sauce, mushrooms, and provolone. Customize carbo-delivery systems with bacon, barbecue sauce, onion rings, lettuce, salsa, and flame decals, all served on a soft italian roll. Customers can use their Groupon in one visit or get a punch card good for the remainder of their Phillies and drinks for future sandwich sojourns.
