While all the Summer Restaurant Week participants are wowing us with their lineups, this one in particular made us do a double-take.

The Famous Restaurant in Centerville is serving three rounds of back-to-back favorites for $20.18 this week only. When looking over the menus, what really stopped us in our tracks was the grand finale of it all — dessert.

These desserts incorporate two beloved Dayton institutions: a Bill's Donut Hole Freeze. The other desert option is a Warped Wing Root Beer Float, an equally strong contender.

Here’s a rundown of The Famous Restaurant’s entire Restaurant Week menu: (pick 1 of each)


-2 avocado egg rolls

-Half order buffalo crips

-Pretzel bites

🍴Main course:

-10 wings (traditional or boneless)

-Half order chicken & waffles
