Indisputably the best independent Tex-Mex fast-food joint in St. Louis, Nachomama's gives Rock Hill a much-needed infusion of flavor and color. Dig the tricolor tortilla chips served in flower pots and the Bud Dry mural on the ceiling. The kitchen turns out topnotch burritos, quesadillas and nachos, and the beans rise well above the status of simple side dish. Though you can order hard-shell tacos, the soft variety is excellent. The guacamole ranks among the area's best, and the salsas (especially the hottest version) are mighty tasty. There's no bar, per se, but margaritas and bottled beer are available.
While Nadine's labels itself a "gin joint," its menu caters to drinkers and teetotalers alike. Appetizers include hot wings, toasted ravioli and quesadillas, while the main courses feature sandwiches, kebabs, pork steak and seafood options. Nadine's also offers daily specials, such as stuffed peppers, a chicken Philly and chili mac. Guests can choose to sit inside or, on nice days, enjoy Nadine's patio.
Part of the Steven Becker Fine Dining mini-empire -- which includes the fancy Coronado Ballroom and Lazy Susan Catering, both housed in the same prewar building across Lindell from SLU -- Nadoz is the casual-fare sheep of the family, offering simple and tasty provisions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and, most notably, brunch. The Sunday "50 items for $25" all-you-can-eat to-do includes a smashing array of pastries and desserts: chocolate sour cream muffins, triple-chocolate scones, fruit tarts and tiramisu. Reservations recommended.
Sister restaurant to Clayton's Café Napoli, Napoli 2 brings classic Italian dishes and atmosphere to Town and Country. Located at Clayton Road on Town and Country Crossing Drive, just west of Woods Mill Road, Napoli 2 offers fine dining and an attention to detail in an elegant setting. The menu features full-course meals, beginning with appetizers such as beef carpaccio and steamed mussels, and followed with a variety of soups and salads. Pasta dishes include a housemade pappardelle in a white- wine sauce with fresh vegetables and Parmesan, and tortellini stuffed with ricotta and spinach with prosciutto and peas in a vodka tomato-cream sauce. Second course offerings feature chicken, veal, steak and fish entrées, such as Marsala with sautéed mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers in a Marsala wine sauce and an eight-ounce filet mignon. Napoli 2 also contains a full wine cellar, which is available for private parties.
Located on Washington Avenue near the loft district and open from the evenings till 3 a.m. every day, Nara Café brings Mediterranean-style food and culture to downtown's trendy region.

Their other menu, the one that you can smoke, offers more than 100 varieties of flavored tobacco, including familiar scents such as jasmine, apple and vanilla, as well as many exotic flavors such as tequila sunrise or cherry amaretto. Nara Café patrons experience a laid-back, smoky atmosphere late into the evening and are entertained by belly dancers and DJs on weekends.
A diverse menu of quality frozen alcoholic beverages using hand-crafted ingredients, infusions, and purees that are produced in-house and from scratch.
Nascar Speedpark’s thematic focus is go-kart racing, but really, you should expect a borderline theme park experience. In addition to five go-kart tracks, the Speedpark offers mini golf, laser tag, rock climbing, bumper boats, a playground and dozens of smaller rides and arcade games. Events and birthday parties are a particular specialty: The birthday packages start around $15 per child and — subject to availability — feature an appearance by “Sparkie,” the Nascar Speedpark mascot. If you just drop in for a visit, expect to pay for individual rides. But the more cost-effective choice will probably be a daily unlimited wristband; purchase one at a slight discount online with day passes at $15-$20 or an unlimited monthly pass at $31.99. Of course, your level of fun may depend on the weather but even if the outdoor options are closed, you’re only missing out on golf, bumper boats and three of the go-kart tracks.
