When it’s burger time we’re heading to Wally’s Drive-In, a choice for generations of diners. Nothing fancy here, just good fresh ground beef cooked right, with a little cheese if you want it. It’s a classic. A side of onion rings and a chocolate shake make it a perfect to-go meal.

The sandwiches at A Fine Swine are slow-cooked and so-so good. One of the finest picks is the Albert Einswine, a two-handed beauty with tender pulled pork topped with a juicy sausage and one of the house-made sauces. Keep the napkins handy.

New kid on the block, Duey’s On Fairfax, is quickly becoming a go-to for its wide range of specialty sandwiches.

Here’s to Grandma!
