According to the blog from Experience Grand Rapids, a few years back, a place by the name of Tacos El Ganadero shut down, leaving its employees jobless. That didn't last long, however, since one of those employees decided to step up. Rather than sink with the ship, Mercedes Lopez-Duran bought the restaurant and saved her coworkers' jobs in the process. She re-named it El Granjero, or "the farmer" in Spanish, as a reflection of the new menu's farm-fresh ingredients. El Granjero has been a hit in Grand Rapids since it opened. Lopez-Duran continues to run the show, and her selection of authentic Mexican food has developed a throng of loyal followers. The menu features a la carte specialty gorditas, deep-fried tacos, and wet burritos, which are smothered with salsa and melted white cheese. There are also Mexican specialties such as grilled cactus and menudo, plus Mexican hot chocolate, the best thing for a cold day besides a pair of socks warmed in the oven.

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.

On a warm August day in 1938, a father and son unveiled the first sample of what was to become Dairy Queen, selling 1,600 samples on the first day, a feat as unheard of as a dragon that breathes ice. Its ensuing prolific expansion was fueled by its frozen treats, which propelled the dessert shop from 100 stores in 1947 to 1,446 in 1950. Today, their dessert recipes remain largely unchanged, and Dairy Queen has added hearty hot dogs to its menu. Dairy Queen's enormous dessert menu boasts treats ranging from soft-serve cones and blizzards filled with cookies to takeaway ice-cream sandwiches and cakes.
