Moraine, West Carrollton, and Miamisburg all have central restaurant areas filled with a mixture of fast-food establishments and popular chain restaurants. Most of the restaurants in Miamisburg center on the Dayton Mall, and serve everything from Italian and Mexican cuisine to fine-dining establishments and classic American fare. West Carrollton and Moraine feature popular chain restaurants such as Applebee's and Bob Evans, many of which sit near the Alex-Bell Road and Springboro Pike intersection in West Carrollton and the Dorothy Lane and Kettering Boulevard intersection in Moraine.
An iconic symbol of Downtown Miamisburg, the Hamburger Wagon attracts people from all over the Dayton area. The food cart serves the best sliders in the area, but don't expect to order a loaded burger here. The Hamburger Wagon keeps things simple -- typical burger toppings such as cheese, lettuce, mustard, and ketchup aren't available. The cook uses salt and pepper to season the fried patties to perfection before he tops them with onions and pickles. Locals love the small, crispy burgers so much that stopping by the Hamburger Wagon has become a Miamisburg tradition.
Sunday mornings in Moraine wouldn't be complete without buttermilk pancakes and potato wedges from the Golden Nugget Pancake House on South Dixie Drive, but arrive early to avoid a wait. There's typically a line out the door. Regulars insist that you can't order a bad meal at the Golden Nugget. The restaurant's huge, fluffy omelets, eggs benedict smothered in Hollandaise sauce, and bacon waffles all come highly recommended. For a laid-back Sunday breakfast, visit the Koffee Kup on South First Street in Miamisburg. Like the Golden Nugget, the greasy-spoon-style restaurant serves hearty, down-home breakfast dishes cooked to order. The Koffee Kup doesn't get as crowded as the Golden Nugget, but the food is just as good, and the regulars are friendly.
The nightlife in West Carrollton and Moraine consists mostly of neighborhood dive bars, but the mall area in Miamisburg houses
several dance clubs, including Julia's Night Club on Kingsridge Drive. Popular options include Bullwinkle's Top Hat Bistro and Doctor Doodles Lounge.
