READERS, UPSTATE | Johnnie’s Dog House

Charcoal Pit grills the best burgers, blends the best shakes and offers the best service, and you’d be hard-pressed to find folks who treat kids better. For 54 years, servers at the Concord Pike icon have endured Sweet 16 birthday parties, scooped ice cream for muddy Little Leaguers, and provided a safe zone for awkward first dates.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Betty’s Pure & Simple
18585 Coastal Hwy., No. 23, Rehoboth Beach, 645-6160
With Betty’s Pure and Simple, restaurateur extraordinaire Matt Haley lightened up the former Adriatico Restaurant with both new paint and a new approach to family-friendly cuisine. There’s homemade kettle chips with blue cheese dip, beef stroganoff, picnic-style deviled eggs, and chicken-and-rice soup like mom used to make.
