Fast Eddie's Bon-Air

Fast Eddie's may or may not be, as one of its brochures boasts, the "#1 volume bar in the world." Nonetheless, this 80-year-old, 400-seat institution is almost always packed, owing to its serving up filling if not elaborate meals for just a couple of bucks as long as you're willing to buy a drink while you're there and to retrieve your own meal from the counter. The menu has a total of seven items, the most expensive being a beef-tenderloin kebab called a "Big Elwood on a Stick," topping out at a whopping $1.99. A half-pound "Fat Eddie" hamburger is 99 cents, and individual jumbo shrimp are a steal at 29 cents apiece. And don't forget: Only patrons 21 and older are allowed, so leave the kiddos at home.
