Jersey-style subs may be Boardwalk Subs’ food forte, but the staff’s true specialty is its attention to customer service, as showcased by its nomination for the Grand Rapids Celebrated Service award. In between friendly smiles and polite conversations, the kitchen crew at the family owned eatery focuses its attention on handcrafting 25 types of toasted or grilled subs and pairing them with fresh-baked cookies and warm soups. After baking fresh bread each day, cooks slice open each 15-inch roll before stuffing it with savory meats, such as salami, capicola, and roast beef, and seven kinds of colorful vegetables. The sandwich artists then top the savory layers with one of 12 sauces and seasonings such as celery salt and italian spices.

The ice-cream artisans at Ice Cream Garage cool heat-stroked taste buds with ice-cream cones, specialty sundaes, and drinkable desserts within a whimsically decorated auto garage turned ice-cream parlor. Head into the open garage door and cool off with a single ($2.49) or double ($2.99) ice-cream scoop next to the large wall mural of characters from Disney/Pixar's Cars and its less popular prequel, Buggies. In the Lube Oil & Filter—one of many automobile-themed specialty sundaes—large chunks of cookie dough glide down a cookie-dough-ice-cream mountain on a river of chocolate syrup and whipped cream ($3.19). Slurp up brain-freeze fodder with a thick malt ($2.99), or swirl inventive flavor combinations in a custom flurry blended with such toppings as rainbow sprinkles ($2.99), which are colorful enough to attract both leprechauns and Lisa Frank.

Located downtown Comstock Park with the White Pine Trail leading to its back door, Mad Dogz invites guests to stroll, bike, or mash potato in and enjoy a menu boasting 23 gourmet hot dogs. A place where regulars are greeted by name, the friendly frankfurter maestros slather the all-beef or veggie dogs in chili and cheese and get adventurous under a pile of chili, peanut butter, pickles, and Fritos crumbles. All franks can be prepared extra fiery, as the bun-fillers turn up the heat to ?insane,? ?unstable,? or ?psychotic?. During clement weather, Mad Dogz seats guests out on the patio to relish a juice box or iced tea along with views of squirrels playing kickball at Dwight Lydell Park across the street.
