Mac says I remember eating at the Beacon as a kid for the year we lived in Spartanburg. The onion rings were always awesome and the burgers were large and flat if I remember. The memory that is most prevalent are the bags of onions used to create a line, the sweet iced tea and a dude yelling "Chili cheese!" As a kid the chili looked too greasy and scary in a giant pot but I now regret not getting it. I also remember the Hog Sundae- 10 scoops of ice cream and a bunch of toppings!
