17. US Cafe

Double US Burger
The best of the fast-casuals first opened in Smyrna in 1986, decades before a fancier wave of joints crashed down on us. And unlike its contemporary peers, US Cafe doesn’t charge like a big boy, full-service restaurant. Six dollars will fetch a righteous half-pounder that’s hot off the flattop. $6 burger, $2 fries. Multiple locations, uscafe.net
