Johnny's New York Style Pizza brings pizza-induced bliss with authentic NYC sauce ladled over thin and fresh crust and specialty toppings, as well as a variety of classic Italian fare and pasta dishes and a wide selection of beers. After perusing the menu, customers may choose a 16-inch wheel ($12.25) that rotates the flavorful spokes of steadfast smearings such as pepperoni or green peppers ($0.75–$3.05 per topping). Or, for extra credit, industrious high-school students can dissect the four chambers of the artichoke heart, unless they prefer pesto adorning their pies. For lunch, try a special combination, such as a slice of pizza with one regular topping plus a small garden salad and a soft drink ($5.55). Dinner orders for the pizzaly disinclined abound, such as Johnny’s classic lasagna, with layers of seasoned ricotta, mozzarella, meatballs, and sausage baked in a marinara sauce.
Stevi B’s pizza-crafting professionals toss together hand-made dough, original sauce, 100% real cheese, and fresh, hand-selected ingredients to construct traditional and anomalous pies within a festive buffet setting. Ogle the menu before lining plates with handmade bread sticks and slices from specialty pies, such as the bacon-sprinkled loaded baked potato pizza ($6.99–$8.99 for carryout) or the mac ‘n’ cheese pizza ($6.99–$8.99 for carryout), a culinary fusion of alfredo sauce and elbow noodles that invoke childhood memories of singing about Yankee Doodle Dandy's mistake of sticking a blue box in his hat and calling it an authentic pasta dinner. Stevi B's dough-slingers will also custom craft your choice of pizza toppings. The smorgasbord of cuisine allows guests to choose from a bevy of regular round, crusted fare, a salad bar, and a slew of dessert pizzas that includes chocolate bavarian cream and apple crisp ($4.99–$6.99 for carryout). Buffet prices typically range from $3.59 for kids to $5.99 for adults, not including drinks ($1.59–$1.99).
My Father's Place dishes out a vast menu of Italian classics including pizzas, pasta, subs, and calzones. Begin savory sojourns with garlic knots crafted from house-made dough ($3.99) by boy scouts apprenticing for epicurean sea captains. The Spud-Nick pizza allows eaters to bask in the innovation of Italian cuisine with sliced baked potatoes, crumbled bacon, chives, cheese, and sour cream ($15.99–$17.99). Other pizza options draw inspiration from Hawaiian, Texan, Mexican, and Greek fare, and a single slice of pepperoni pizza ($1.69) satisfies classic cravings. Gear up athletic-level appetites for the lasagna dinner, which opens with a preshow salad and arrives with garlic bread at the sidelines ($7.99). Thoughtful chefs cover genoa salami and spiced ham with a provolone blanket on the cold italian sub ($5.29).
The chefs at Tasty Crust Pizza concoct their dough from scratch daily, flatten it into thin discs, and cap the crispy pies with fresh toppings. Bury your nose in the restaurant's straightforward menu, then bury your face in a large carryout pie adorned with one of 14 toppings ($7.99), or bury family heirlooms under large, carryout, specialty pizzas such as the baked potato pizza or the bacon cheeseburger pizza ($11.99). Customers may dine-in to pair the pizza—the beloved superhero of foods—with a sidekick such as spicy fried ravioli ($3.99), wings ($6.99 for 10, $12.99 for 20), or a well-adjusted tax accountant.
It was a bold idea—opening a restaurant in the midst of the Great Depression. But the founders were truly convinced that if they maintained a clean space with low prices and friendly service, they'd drum up more than enough business to support themselves. And on October 24, 1932, when Krystal's first customer walked out with six Krystals and a cup of coffee for 35 cents, the restaurant's remarkably successful run began.
More than 81 years later, Krystal reigns as one of the oldest fast-food brands in the country. Their namesake creation remains their biggest draw, snack-size burgers topped with diced onion, mustard, and pickle on a soft, square bun. Over the years they've added other hugely popular menu items, including breakfast scramblers and MilkQuakes made from 100% real ice cream. Even after eight decades, enthusiasm from customers has hardly cooled: Krystal gets so much fan mail, the staff have a Krystal Lovers Hall of Fame, for which inductees have their illustrated likeness printed on more than a million burger boxes.
Traditional Jamaican flavors abound in Island Paradise's casual dining room, where a predominantly Caribbean staff revs up the sense of authenticity. Amid bright red banquettes and paintings of the tropics, tables populate with coconut-dusted fish fillets, jerk chicken, and spicy marinated pork. After diners pass around entree plates of oxtail and curried goat, they can bury forks in a sweet Jamaican dessert or utilize the eatery's dangling bead curtains as guitar strings for a three-piece zydeco band.
