The Guilty Pleasure: You're soaking in it. Where To Get It: Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles, 1220 S Central Ave (and a second location in Scottsdale) Open: Less than a week for the new Phoenix digs. Price: $4-$14, depending on your appetite. What It Really Costs: About half a day on the treadmill.

For local success stories, few are as brilliant as that of Larry White. You probably know him better as Lo-Lo, as in Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles. He started out at his grandma's place, the legendary Mrs. White's Golden Rule Cafe. Then, in 2002, he started up his own place in a small converted house south of downtown Phoenix. In the ten years since, he opened a second location in Scottsdale, and long ago outgrew the original 1,000 square-foot location. This past Wednesday, the little house quietly served its last customers. Three days later, a shiny new location opened right next door to the old place.
