Ranked #1 Submarine Sandwich Franchise in the 2011 "Franchise 500" issue of Entrepreneur Magazine, Subway has graced the globe with nutritious stacks of meats, crisp veggies, flavorful cheeses, and fresh-baked breads since 1965. Sandwiches, which can be left out cold or invited into a toaster, include classics such as the turkey breast, black-forest ham, the premium big philly cheesesteak, and a host of $5 foot-long subs—which can be used to measure a child's height or the distance between Earth and the sun. There are also kids' meals to introduce children to the concept of eating. The eateries open at 7 a.m. with bountiful breakfast sandwiches served alongside cups of Seattle’s Best Coffee.

Owned by philly cheesesteak connoisseurs Ken and Betty Kemler, The Keystone Grill cultivates a family-friendly dining atmosphere that features a sundry menu of comforting, cooked-to-order cuisine. Let an appetizer such as Cajun fries ($2.99) or stuffed mushroom caps ($5.79) serve as a prelude to a potpourri of entrees, including the cheesesteak-inspired Keystone Special pizza, topped with green peppers, onions, mushrooms, and steak on a homemade crust ($11.39–$20.79), or the breaded crab cakes, whose grumpy disposition hides a delightfully delicious interior ($10.29). For an authentic taste of the owners' roots, wrap a sandwich trap around the South Philly cheesesteak—a symphony of fresh-shaved beef, that replaces the traditional American cheese with Cheese Whiz––an even more traditional American cheese ($8.29).

It's not every day that a dinner with friends risks a murder accusation. That's a good possibility for the guests of The Murder Mystery Company, who find themselves in the middle of a investigation for which any one of them could stand accused by a hapless detective. During each interactive dinner, the company's troupe of professional improv actors ignites the dining room with entertaining outbursts and hilarious one-liners in an effort to divulge clues and redirect guilt. Meanwhile, guests work together to sniff out the real culprit, which is definitely not the school janitor in a mask. Birthday parties, bachelorette celebrations, and corporate events can also get in on the interactive action by scheduling a private murder-mystery dinner.

On first glance, it’s hard to imagine that the charming French Country Inn was once a haunt for such notorious gangsters as Bugs Moran and Baby Face Nelson. But the century-old bed and breakfast, which sits unassumingly on a quiet street on the banks of Lake Como, served as a discreet getaway for gangsters during the height of Prohibition.

After walking into the main building, you immediately get a sense of the inn's rich history. Parquet flooring leads to an intricately carved staircase made of solid oak imported from Denmark. In the other buildings, period furnishings and hues of warm crimson lend the accommodations a homey feel.

In keeping with this hospitable spirit, the innkeepers lay out a complimentary breakfast spread each morning. As the day winds on, guests can venture out to nearby downtown Lake Geneva to browse its antiques stores, art galleries, and curio shops.

Gino's East's still stands at its original spot on Michigan and Superior but has also stretched to 10 other city and suburban locations. Whether dining downtown or in St. Charles, customers find Alice Mae’s signature crust piled with mounds of cheese, sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes, and plenty of fresh toppings—from sausage and pepperoni to jalapeños and canadian bacon. Hot from the oven, pizzas arrive at tables snuggled inside seasoned deep-dish pans, ready to welcome a fork and knife. Thin-crust varieties are also available for those who don’t know how to work silverware, as is a bounty of sandwiches.

At Corleone Sicilian Restaurant, guests dine on a spread of freshly made dishes inspired just as much by grandma's kitchen as by Sicily itself. The menu is chock-full of family recipes, ranging from lightly breaded steak and tender chicken cacciatore to hearty lasagna and pastas ladled with housemade sauce. Head Chef Matthew Fradera whips up elegantly plated feasts of lunch paninis and margherita pizzas or dinners of eggplant pasta and veal cutlets, paired with fine Italian wines.
