Beacon Drive-In opened in 1946 and is now a Spartanburg landmark. John B. White founded The Beacon. The Beacon's large menu features an entire selection of "a-plenty" dishes such as beef a-plenty and chili-cheese burger a-plenty. The "a-plenty" dishes are served with french fries and onion rings.

Kenny Church says, “We try to give people plenty. He [White] actually started the Beacon after the Depression when people didn’t have much food. So he started a plate called 'a-plenty'  which is a lot of food."

Remember, we were once part of the solidly democratic south.”
