This old-fashioned roast beef shrine makes fast food the way it should be: fresh and tasty. Going strong for more than 40 years, little has changed at the lively nostalgic eatery where families hunker down in yellow booths and dip thick, rippled cottage fries into pools of Velveeta-like cheese or fiery hot sauce. To shake off the gluttony (sweet corn fritters are another must), take a stroll around the nearby bay.
