After a 50 plus year journey, business is booming and the Ben’s brand is red hot. The one constant they’ve had since 1958 has been the loyalty of their customers, and they listened when you said, “whatever you do, never change this place.” The counter, booths and stools are all original; the fresh homemade chili is still made with love, using the same secret recipe.

2. Good Stuff Eatery

The counter service burger and fries joint builds your chuck by the buck. The daily grind of beef and brisket, hand formed patties, and char-grilled burgers on a buttered toasted house made bun with your choice of cheeses, toppings, and sauces- is not an invention, but a temptation. Sips come in fountain sodas, malts and shakes, 20 brews on tap, and “shaketails” for the grown-ups.

4. Thunder Burger & Bar
