    I just cant believe this! I'm talking about the world famous Beacon,and only 1 person has been there!!! This is crazy. I can see right now that I am going to have to devote all of my free time to promoting more chili cheese a plentys. I was there last week. My wife and mama got the liver a plenty plates, and I of course got the chili cheese a plenty. We also got jalepeno hush puppies there.

    Several years back John B White sold the Beacon but everybody stay on. I go every few weeks and eat there. Also some Saturdays the guys at work pick up food from there. They have the best sweet tea around.
