Benny Sorrentino’s Pizza

Benny’s is known for their incredible 28” pies, which they claim are large enough to feed two whole families. Not to worry for those who can’t handle such an enormous meal, they also sell pizza by the slice, although the slices alone are so large they have to be served on two plates. Their menu features classics like cheese, pepperoni, and sausage, while their specials spice things up with new and fresh offerings like pulled pork and jalapeños or garlic mushroom. They also offer a wide variety of drinks ranging from every soda imaginable, lemonades, teas, and juices to a list of domestic beers and ever-changing local ones. more

Billy Jack’s Wing & Draft Shack

Walking into this restaurant feels just a little bit like walking into a funhouse, but we wouldn’t want it any other way. Chandeliers made out of Mickey’s grenade bottles, old doors hanging on the walls, and a rubber chicken standing guard over the bar are just a few of the things that makes Billy Jack’s Wing & Draft Shack so unique. Known and loved for their famous Sticky Nuggs, fresh fried chicken served with one of their delicious sauces in a Chinese takeout box, Billy Jacks knows food. Here you will find a variety of choices that includes salads, fresh oysters, and house-made donuts. Every Thursday is “Nugg” day where their signature dish is only $4 — not a deal to miss! They also offer weekend brunch with choices like chicken & waffles benedict, biscuits & gravy, and breakfast nachos, as well as unique drink specials like mimosas, Bj’s bloody mary, and frooty tang.  more
