Burgers

An unassuming strip-mall spot, Shady Lane Cafe has all the classic eats and neighborly charm you want in a local mom & pop shop. Owned and operated by a husband-and-wife team, this tiny cafe has one of the best burgers around and it's the true star here. Sure, it's hand-pattied and cooked to order, but the real secret lies in the spice blend used to season the beef just before it hits the cast-iron griddle. It’s easy to see (and taste) why it's been a cult favorite for years.
