The Scene: Jax Cafe occupies a quiet corner in Benton Park, where chef Brian Hale rolls out a menu of home-cooked American-style comfort foods. The casual restaurant retains the homey vibe of the neighborhood with a few classy touches. The room features a bar, exposed brick and several tables topped with white tablecloths and fresh flowers.

The Food: Happy-hour appetizer options are truffle fries, chips & dip, pretzel sliders, the "Jax Burger" and duck-egg rolls. These plates are typically available on the standard menu, and the happy-hour selections cost even less than half of the regular price.

At only $5, the "Jax Burger" doesn't skimp on flavor. A buttery, toasted brioche bun comes topped with a juicy beef patty, creamy Boursin cheese, housemade steak sauce, fried onion straws, pickle relish, bacon, tomato and lettuce. This meal, folks, is a steal and certainly a satisfying way to indulge savory cravings.
