Colored portraits of pop culture stars adorn one wall, rock records line another. In the background, soft rock tunes from another decade play. Ambient light floods the small restaurant.

The inclusion of burgers in American culture runs deep; nothing is more iconic in the American diet. Some find that notion to be worrying, but to me, I find it to be beautiful. They are a staple of celebrations, the main dish of a cookout, or the pathway to a solid nap. And with this integration, burgers vary drastically...

Fried Chicken. A testament to the American dream. A staple to Sunday Night football or ravenous late night Whataburger excursions. Originally a Scottish dish, fried chicken has pervaded this nation's culture from the ground up. In the early 19th century, Southern farmers introduced the delicacy to the population as a replacement to the boring broiled norm. Infusing their culture's...
There's a phenomena at Jesuit every Thursday that few can explain. We went to the students to discover why one item in the cafeteria is more popular than the others.
As we approach the old, stone building, we see the immense line of patrons all eagerly waiting to be admitted inside. Many of them have been waiting since 5:00 am, just to be the first ones in line.
