Menus are more or less what you would expect, with some extra functionality thrown in to enable "creative" use for things like mega-menus or tabbed menus.
For 80% of the common use-cases, the default menu output will be sufficient for your sites. Just splash a little bit of style over it, make it responsive, and run with it.
There are some non-traditional options built into menu items that you may consider utilizing for some designs - including the image, description, and "content" fields. Keep in mind that if you plan on using these fields you should tell your content creators & maintainers what you intend to use them for.
ProTip: Use <liquid-markup> tags in the "content" fields to do whatever you want in an easy mega-menu.
