I've always used 1-800-Free-411 in the past for free 411 calls, but I recently discovered that Google came out with their own version of free 411 phone calls at 1-800-GOOG-411. I played around with it today and I must say I'm impressed. I called up and asked for pizza listings in my area and one of the top choices was a joint that opened up just last week. I called again looking for a cigar store and they told me about a place I didn't even know existed. They also will connect you to the business for free, send you a text message with the store's information if you want to save it, and can also send you a local map of the area.
Yet another awesome service by Google, if you ask me!
