  1. Joyce fondly recalls Dooley’s, which used to be located Downtown, as having the absolute best flame-grilled burgers she’s ever tasted. According to her, what set these burgers apart was the use of spreadable cheese instead of the usual sliced variety. The experience left such a lasting impression on her that she continues to incorporate spreadable cheese into her own meals to this day.
