Founded in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton, Burger King rapidly expanded from humble beginnings as a lone burger joint to more than 12,400 locations across 79 countries today, making it the second-largest fast-food-hamburger chain in the world. Its signature burger?the Whopper sandwich?consists of flame-broiled, quarter-pound beef patties crowned with a miniature fedora and a fully customizable array of toppings such as tomatoes, onions, and dill pickles. Focused on continual improvement, the chain recently reinvented the fries that accompany each value meal, outfitting the spud slices with a thicker cut of potato for a fluffier texture on the inside and crispier golden-brown exterior. A spread of decadent desserts including dutch apple pie and Hershey pie keeps sweet teeth from elongating into fangs, and made-to-order breakfast sandwiches clasp eggs, american cheese, and bacon, sausage, or ham between two halves of a flaky croissant to round out the speedy menu.

With its precisely trimmed hedges, red-brick façade, and quartet of shuttered windows, Grace Manor Restaurant looks less like an eatery than a private home. Inside, chef and owner Debra Grace keeps up the pretense, serving hearty helpings of upscale comfort fare such as gravy-soaked buttermilk biscuits and rosemary-sprinkled mac 'n' cheese. Entrees such as porterhouse steaks, asparagus-and-mushroom ravioli, and peppers stuffed with quinoa round out the dinner selection. Not only the menus, but the interior paint and local artwork on the walls change with the seasons as Debra concocts new dishes from locally grown produce, meats, and dairy.

"For many Cardinals fans, Mike Shannon has become as much a part of Cardinals baseball as the 'Birds on the Bat,'" Cardinals chairman William O. Dewitt, Jr. once said. Shannon played his first Major League game as a Cardinal in 1962, and took the field as part of three World Series teams. And he's stayed part of the organization for more than 50 years, moving from the dugout to the broadcasting booth, and becoming an Emmy-winning sportscaster in the process.

Today, Mike Shannon continues to celebrate his Cardinals legacy at his eponymous sports bar. Visitors are greeted at the entry by a trophy case stocked with awards from Shannon's personal collection, illuminated by repurposed gym lights. On another wall, more than 500 baseballs bear the autographs of greats including Ted Williams, Stan Musial, and Mickey Mantle. The Grill is far from a kitschy sports bar, however?in one room, guests sip pisco sours at a gleaming zinc bar set against walls the hue of a night-game sky; in another, they cut into steak oscar at lamplit tables in stately leather booths.

Though the menu does have an upscale slant?featuring classic dishes such as roast chicken with brussels sprouts and seared jumbo scallops?there's burgers and fries, too, which diners dig into as they watch the game on one of the 18 flat-screen TVs. Outside, they can sip beers around the firepit or their neediest friend on a patio that overlooks the Park at Plum Creek.
