Including a Business Directory in a Wordpress Site... any ideas

I am trying to find an easy way to incorporate a business directory into a Wordpress site.

You'd think it would be easy... there must be a directory plugin that allows for people to submit a business listing, an admin can then approve it and people can search for that business listing using keywords or scrolling through the list.
I have tried out the free directory plugins only to find extreme limitations. I have tried to make BuddyPress and Mingle work. I purchased two directory themes but they usurp the entire site and turn it into one big directory.
I am beginning to think there has to be another way. In an older thread someone said Drupal.
Any suggestions? Can I keep using wordpress and then use some other tool for the directory? Or do I really need to go the Drupal route?
I just feel like I am spinning my wheels. Can someone give me some guidance?
