Henry's World Famous Hi-Life is a haven for the unapologetically carnivorous members of the population - and that's why it's so darn popular. The menu offers thick, juicy cuts of meat, meat and more meat, and the full bar offers up plenty to wash it down with. Simply walk in, take a number, place an order and grab a drink from the bar, and the server will come get you when your food is ready. How easy is that? A word to the wise: this place packs in during football season and before and after events at HP Pavilion, which is within stumbling distance.
