Something You Should Eat: Johnnie's Beef

Paired with their signature lemon ice ("Italian lemonade") it ranks among the all-time greatest combos of Mantle & Maris, Batman & Robin, even Ben & Jerry. I say this after having eaten beefs at Jay's, Pop's, Chickie's, Al's and Mr. Beef all multiple times.
