  The White Spot
by mikelisaanna

The White Spot is a legendary diner located on University Avenue in the "Corner" commercial district next to the University of Virginia. If you want a fancy meal, this is not your place. Seating is on stools at a lunch counter, and the menu features a variety of sandwiches and burgers, as well as gyros and souvlakis. The White Spot's most famous menu item is the Gusburger, which is a hamburger with a fried egg on it. The Gusburger is best eaten after midnight and a few beers, when it will provide excellent ballast for your stomach. If the Gusburger is not big enough for you, then try the Motorburger, which is even bigger.
