Since 1999, when Pete A. Cisneros Sr. opened Pappy's Coffee Shop, the rustic, homestyle eatery has attracted locals with generous portions of classic American diner food. From 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day, chefs sizzle eggs alongside chicken-fried steak, jumbo cuts of ham, or fried bologna, and pile plates with seven-grain pancakes and waffles. Their 8-ounce burgers can arrive with Freedom fries or fried okra, and charming, 1-quart mason jars of cold soft drinks. The walls boast American and oil-rig-inspired memorabilia, creating an ambiance more down-home and eclectic than the vintage furniture-juggling contest at the state fair.
The fighter plane's 300-horsepower engine lets out a roar, lifting the plane from the runway. Guiding the plane into the sky, the pilot pursues an enemy aircraft, following its maneuvers and attempting to lock on while the g-force exerted at a 600-mile-per-hour closure rate pushes each pilot back into their seat.
At Fighter Combat Inc, experienced pilots— most trained in military air combat—let guests feel what it's like to fly a plane and engage in aerial warfare. After supplying students with authentic flight suits, instructors teach tactical basics through a blend of classroom training, safety briefings, and lectures. An instructor then leads student pilots through one-on-one, in-air simulated combat that resembles sequences from Top Gun and The Adventures of Milo and Otis, coaching them to out-maneuver their opponent. Every facet of the experience upholds military protocol, and a camera mounted in the cockpit takes photos and records videos of clients operating the controls.
The male and female firearm experts of American Home Defense shape their shooting and self-defense classes around legal regulations with an emphasis on personal safety. In private shooting lessons, students learn to handle three of the most common handguns and home-defense classes equip participants with the know-how to protect their families from intruders or a neighbor's moat monster.

The Best car wash pampers transporters with a shine-restoring exterior wash and detailed interior de-gunking. Car caretakers ensure that carriages are cleaned from their hard exoskeletons to soft underbellies to mate-attracting rims before interior vacuuming and dusting removes all remnants of Cheerios explosions and land barnacles. Dashboard, console, door, and cup-holder conditioning returns auto interiors to a fresh-picked state, while Rain-X protectant seals vehicle exteriors against moisture, preventing rust, improving windshield visibility, and shielding them from the environment's pummeling fists. A tire shine matches rotating rubber to trendy patent-leather streets, and human handlers give cars a final soft-cloth rubdown, making sure all the essential oils get absorbed into their thick skins. Best of all, Sparkling Image offers a seven day guarantee: bring your car (and receipt) back within seven days of your service and they will wash and clean it again for free. A $2 surcharge applies to trucks and SUVs.
Though the Waldo family?proprietors of The Grill Hut?specializes in all things barbecue, chicken and tri-trip remain their two points of pride. Before they?re tossed in the smoker, both meats are marinated and seasoned with a secret recipe known only by the Waldos and a spy stuck behind the family?s refrigerator. Next, the meats are piled onto platters and sandwiches such as the Carnivore, a chicken and tri-tip double-header served on Pyrenees sourdough bread grilled with garlic butter. During breakfast, tri-tip even works its way into three-egg omelets alongside cheese, beans, and salsa.
Besides these main meats, the Waldo clan crafts barbecued favorites such as hot-links sandwiches and baby back ribs served atop housemade angel hair pasta. From beans to corn on the cob, The Grill Hut?s seven sides are likewise housemade.
