The cheerful family that birthed Guacamaya's prides itself on flavorful south-of-the-border fare that comes cooked to order. A favorite is the gargantuan El Zarape platter ($9.95), which sports a savory heap of broiled fajita meat, onions, and bell peppers draped with melted white cheese, rice, charro beans, and corn or flour tortillas. The tilapia fish tacos ($9.95) please the sea-slanted, and patrons harried by rigid taco and burrito algorithms may wish to try the pupusas ($7.99 for three), plump pancakes stuffed with a tasty cheese or pork center and served with smoky charro beans and any of the warm, zesty homemade salsas. Guacamaya’s gastronomic engineers prepare each item with tender care, and if they have the ingredients, they’ll whip up any plate your customizable heart desires. Thanks to a BYOB policy, you’re spared both the expense of drinks and the worry about a menu lacking bottled armadillo tears.
With secure storage spaces ranging in size from 5’x5’ to 10’x30’, Storage Towne of America hosts treasured belongings and allows for easy access in its clean and secure facility. Possessions indifferent to the weather can claim territory in non-climate-controlled units ($35–$145/month), and temperature-controlled units ($40–$165/month) tender refuge to such sensitive items as books, electronics, and snowmen bearing a strong likeness to William Taft. Units remain secure with fortress walls and individual security codes, and 24-hour access to the facility eases midnight longings for teddy bears mistakenly resigned to storage. Courtesy carts facilitate easy transport of items between the car and the unit.
Though the entrees at The Dixie Cafe make the biggest splash across its menu marquee, they're threatened with gastronomical upstaging by the southern-style eatery's 19 sides and scratch-made gravies. The chicken-fried steak, for example, is a tender, hand-breaded fillet that fully blossoms with flavor only after chefs smother it with cream gravy and cheddar cheese. And the Cajun grilled catfish's down-home taste isn't fully developed until it is paired up with bites of turnip greens, fried okra, or a homemade roll. The classic platter meals take advantage of this by pairing an entree with two sides, rolls, and jalapeño cornbread and can be ordered "light" for a portion that's smaller than the regular size and easier to toss in the air and catch in your mouth.

Bensinger's handles dud disasters and emergencies with a wide range of services, benefitting individuals, families, and the olfactory organs of wire-hangers and bureau drawers. The skilled staff of dirt exorcists unsoils, unsullies, and unblemishes items such as men’s shirts ($2.55) and pants ($6.20), women’s slacks and skirts ($6.20 each), blouses ($6.30), and chainmail pantaloons. Fragile silk, linen garments, comforters, bedspreads, tablecloths, and newspaper hats are handled with fragile silk gloves, and shirts are hand-finished and pressed instead of being recklessly tossed under passing steamrollers.
