At Scorpio's, adept culinary artists handcraft robust pizzas, saucy pastas, and savory entrees from zesty spices, an array of organic ingredients, and signature family recipes. Hand-tossed pizzas are made to order with a choice of toppings, such as roasted garlic, artichoke hearts, and house-made meatballs, whirling from piping hot ovens to fill plates with cheesy slices of Sicilian-style pie ($13.99+). Or, opt for one of the restaurant's specialty selections, such as an onion- and mozzarella-slathered barbecue chicken pizza ($13.99 for a large) or the self-named Scorpio, which combines pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, green peppers, onions ($14.99 for a large), and an affinity for long walks on the beach into one hard-to-resist dish.
Papa John's has been popping out perfectly personalized pies 'round the clock for more than 25 years, arranging a lineup of specialty pizzas and sides on a munificent menu. Patrons can bedeck dough disks with carnivorous confetti in the form of pepperoni, ham, spicy italian sausage, bacon, sausage, beef, or grilled chicken. Golden-voiced fresh vegetables make palates swoon with a jukebox's selection of green peppers, portobello mushrooms, roma tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, onions, black olives, pineapple, banana peppers, and newly harvested 45s. Eaters can prod cooks with the click of a mouse, alerting them to special requests such as an extra layer of parmesan romano or the three-cheese blend of the asiago, fontina, and provolone. Like a popular club or an especially bangin’ fireplace store, Papa John's stays open late, making it an opportune place to stock up for impromptu pajama jams and uncontrollable sleep-feasting.
The coal-fired oven at Rock N' Coal Pizza fires out Italian favorites that fuse flavors from both the Old World and the New. Chefs specialize in both classic Neapolitan pizzas—such as the shrimp and vodka sauce pie—as well as the more modern New York style pizza topped with toppings such as buffalo chicken. But guests don't have to stick to just modern or traditional. They can combine both styles with the menu's build-your-own-pizza option. Guests can choose to build their own prime beef burger, too, or select one of the chef's gourmet combination such as the bistro burger—a patty topped with bacon, cheddar, and a fried egg.
In the massive main room, flatscreen televisions hang over booths casting a warm glow over meals and broadcasting the day's biggest games. The main room may be a destination for sports fans, but Rock N' Coal's private room gives guests a chance to celebrate special occasions or plan their next move in a rapidly escalating prank war.
The chefs at Gourmet Pizza & Grill dish a menu of fresh and swiftly prepared pies for dine-in, carryout, or delivery. Refuting the notion that quick food has to be loaded down with grease and old hot rod tires, the restaurant's crew serves up pizzas with healthful adornments such as chicken, spinach, and mushrooms, alongside the crème de la crème of cured meats—pepperoni and salami. To accompany custom-created pizzas, three types of wings—plain, barbecue, and buffalo—headline a list of appetizers that includes traditional fried favorites such as onion rings and mozzarella sticks. Alternatively, diners can opt for a garden, greek, or antipasto salad.
