UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, Ohio -- An Akron-area icon is gearing up to spread its Galley Boy goodness to University Heights.

City Council approved the deal this week.
Known for its signature Galley Boy, which is a double cheeseburger smothered in two sauces, Swensons is consistently ranked among America’s best burger spots. It's even a favorite spot for Cavs star LeBron James and his family.
