For more than four decades, Mr. Burger has sated carnivorous cravings with a menu of juicy burgers and other toothsome classics for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A patron's day can begin at any hour with the breakfast combo of pancakes, toast, an alarm clock, any-style eggs, and sizzling bacon or sausage links ($3.90). For sturdier eats, dig into a double meat ($2.80–$5.05) or a Mr. Triple burger ($4.50–$6.75)—both made quadruply delicious when paired with one of the succulent sides, such as french fries, onion rings, and coleslaw—or plunge incisors into a chicken pita ($3.99–$6.24), gyro ($3.50–$5.75), or fried chicken sandwich ($3.85–$6.10). Postmeal fanatics can indulge their inner child or find out that they're someone else's inner child with old-fashioned desserts including fresh strawberry pies, cream pies, and creamy shakes and sundaes.

After serving the community for close to four decades, Charles Davis—the former owner of the Dairy Queen that used to be at 333 Hall Street—knew that the time had come to sell his business. His health was failing and he closed the doors in 2008, but he didn't want to turn over the keys and the legacy he had built to just anyone. Davis told Ursula Zerilli of MLive.com, "I could have sold it many different times to many people but I was looking for a special person who would do the same things I’ve done for 37 years and I found that in Renard." He was referring to local entrepreneur Renard Johnson, who stepped up to the sprinkle-covered plate and reopened the business as Madison Square Dairy Treat. Johnson keeps the spirit of the original establishment alive—he offered kids free cones on opening day, Davis's 71st birthday, in honor of a tradition that Davis himself began. Johnson continues to serve Mr. Davis's signature lemon ice cream, and covers cones in chocolate or butterscotch dip. He and his staff also mix Krush slushes in flavors such as lemon lime, blue raspberry, and cherry for tongues looking to cheer on the Red Wings or those people who harvest cranberries.

Smashburger isn't just the name—it's the way chefs, otherwise known as Burger Smashers, cook every burger. First, they form never-frozen, 100% Certified Angus Beef into a giant meatball. Then they season it, place it on a butter-glazed grill, and smash it into a patty. The process caramelizes the beef, locking in flavor while keeping the meat juicy and tender. Each slab is then sandwiched in an artisan bun and is turned into one of an array of standard burgers or locally inspired specialties unique to each market.

This handcrafting approach typifies everything else the restaurant does, from blending handspun shakes to hand painting Smashburger's logo onto every beverage cup. Letting its food stand for itself and relying mostly on word of mouth for advertising, the Smashburger franchise expanded from one restaurant in 2007 to 220 today, with its swift growth from zero to 100 stores making it one of the nation's fastest-growing restaurant companies. This rapid development even caught the attention of Forbes and Inc. along the way.

Originally founded in 1936 in Glendale, California, Big Boy’s flagship location initially bore the name Bob’s Pantry after owner Bob Wian. At a diner’s request, Bob piled two beef patties onto a bun to create the Classic Big Boy––an original double-decker hamburger that would become so popular that the small burger stand would eventually grow into a franchise of more than 100 U.S. locations. Legend has it that Bob named the creation after one of his most loyal customers: a 6-year-old boy in droopy overalls who would one day ascend to mascot stardom.

Though the menu has since expanded to include ham sandwiches, homestyle dinners, and breakfast, the eatery still serves its namesake burger stacked high with two patties, american cheese, shredded lettuce, and a special sauce. A large, overall-clad statue stands guard at every location, reminding patrons of the restaurant’s humble beginnings and that children will turn to stone should they not eat enough cheeseburgers.
