In June of 1998, the first Bellacino’s threw open its doors and released oven-baked grinders into the world—and the world couldn't get enough. All locally owned and operated, Bellacino’s restaurants have sprung up like wild pepperonis across the United States, outfitting tables with made-from-scratch Italian sandwiches and thin, gooey pizzas dotted with classic toppings. Crusty Italian bread insulates Cajun-seasoned chicken and turkey and creative stuffers such as crab or taco meat. Pasta favorites such as spaghetti and fettuccini alfredo curl around forks, and crisp salads keep meals lighter than a bird on an all-helium diet.
At Sizzling Sticks Cafe, swords make their way from the battlefield to the kitchen, where chefs unsheathe them to sear Mongolian-style barbecue on a flat grill before diners' very eyes. The ingredients, such as meats, seafood, veggies, sauces, and a defeated Viking's helm, are up to you. In addition to build-your-own-meals, the kitchen churns out preconceived specialty entrees, such as the Vegetarian Delight—tofu and veggies in soy sauce—and the Chicken Pasta Swizzler—chicken and veggies in a spicy-sweet dressing. Finish off lunch or dinner by adding a salad, or spring for an all-you-can-eat portion.
Physicians Weight Loss Center’s doctors and counselors help clients slim down with a sextet of diet plans that drive away excess pounds while maintaining proper nutrition and lean muscle mass.

The aromas of homemade pastas and marinara, meat, and creamy alfredo sauces waft from the partially open kitchen of Amici Italian Bistro into the dining area. There, black-linen-topped tables host plates of veal or chicken breasts in marsala, parmesan, or piccata dishes, or new york strip steaks in king- or queen-size cuts. A daily breakfast menu warms plates with italian-roast-beef hash, frittatas, and pancakes.

Baby Greek’s artwork-bedecked walls inspire patrons with themes from classical antiquity, and its kitchen serves up made-to-order Greek and American dishes. After plopping down in a plush booth seat, starved stomachs torn between carnivorous craving and herbivorous hunger can tuck into a hearty gyro and greek salad with homemade dressing ($7.29). Those with a penchant for patty-shaped provisions may enjoy an old-fashioned cheeseburger ($4.39), and palates stuck on sticks will delight in a chicken-kebab dinner, served with rice and a savory sauce ($8.99).
