While Beinlich's and its very simple menu may seem out of place in the North Shore (and next to a Bentley dealership no less), if you consider burgers sacred cuisine, this is your mecca. Like a Wisconsin hunting lodge, Beinlich's roadhouse feel incorporates fishing trophies on burned-wood walls and entertaining signs that are posted around the restaurant. My favorite is a Hamlet quotation explaining why it doesn't take credit cards: "Neither a lender nor borrower be..."
There are small menus, and then there are really small menus. Beinlich's menu may be microscopic, but once you bite into its cheeseburger (made from cheese and meat culled from local distributors), you'll swear off all other versions for good. Beinlich's also serves shrimp cocktail, a BBQ sandwich and a few cold sandwiches. If you ever wanted a lesson in quality versus quantity, this is it. Arrive early for lunch, as the small restaurant fills up quickly. You don't have to stuff your wallet ($5-$10 per person), but do bring cash.
Average cost: <$10
