At the center of Fort Smith’s three-shift industrial machine lies Benson’s Grill, an always-open orange-and-black diner where workers, college students, and road warriors huddle.

Veterans who want to see you drop your fork will suggest ordering the GOT-cha, a gravy-covered pile of various pig pieces to shovel into your face.

Regardless of who you are, when you cozy up to the counter you're immediately served a hunk of crusty sourdough, softened butter chips, and a dish of the best cole slaw I've every had. If Waffle House is a Toyota, the pantry is an old Cadillac.

Only one place exists in Denver where morning, noon, and late, late night you can get gooey-yet-crispy cheese fries with a side of cumin-laced enchilada sauce.

Everyone sits family-style so there are always interesting conversations to be had, and I can't think of a better place to eat that kind of breakfast on a -20°F Alaskan winter day after drinking local stouts and IPAs.

Bobo’s Restaurant is a Tucson institution every bit as goofy and wonderful as its name.

But it is breakfast where they really shine: toast piled high and proffered with packets of butter and jelly, eggs served however you please, hashes and home fries, stacks both short and not-so-short, melts and wraps of all kinds (if that’s your thing), all anchored by a hot cup of coffee.Arner’s has been a Delaware institution for decades.Settled next to the New Castle County airport, it’s a multigenerational, local go-to where born-and-raised grandparents take their kids and grandkids regularly.Hint: The thick pepper bacon can be stuffed in your pocket for later as you walk around town (watch out for bears).Their "Rudy in a Parka"—reindeer sausage with cheese baked in potato dough—gets brought back to Seward by the bagful and handed out like candy to all the restaurant-industry folks.

I know, my grandpa started taking me there in the ’80s.
