I think Bill posts here quite a bit so hopefully he'll stop by and give input.

I've used this example a few times before... For at least a year and a half, this Minneapolis Pizza joint has basically owned the #1 local spot for that term.

It includes references from a number of local portals, and a DexOnline listing. The references include hours of operations, reviews, payments accepted, etc... The site doesn't have any optimization, although seems to have a bunch of natural incoming links. For this local business anyway, their local/maps results are a lot less of optimization and more of just good marketing... and a really fun anniversary block party every summer.
