Thrillist believes that this is one of Atlanta’s best, ahem, “shackstraunts.” On weekend afternoons, it’s a good place to enjoy a big bowl of menudo or ice cream and watch the soccer results show… if you can find a seat.
We visited seven restaurants over Labor Day weekend, visiting with friends from out of town at one festival and giving out brochures and shaking hands at another. Here’s the whole weekend in one chapter.
Here I go with another very silly complaint. You ever have one of those meals when you get some friends together because you want to try a dish you’ve heard about, and it turns out that yours is the least appealing of all that are ordered?
Time travel all through the history of Buford Highway in this story about a great little family restaurant, in which I also remember a local chain with a presence on this street that failed and vanished before we began blogging.
Here’s a return visit to one of my favorite taquerias on Buford Highway, and a fine place to watch a World Cup match.
In this return trip to that most badly lit of wonderful restaurants on Buford Highway, we team up with more blogging friends to report on some of our favorite Chinese dishes, including the cumin lamb and the Chong Qing chicken.
In a serious blow to any plans I may have had to visit lots of different restaurants and try different things, I ordered the Shan City chicken at this restaurant on Buford Highway, and now I don’t want anything, anywhere, else.

Spoiled for choice on Buford Highway and indecisive, I visit a sandwich shop. We’re very familiar with the other location, on our side of town. How does this one compare?
Consider this chapter a postscript to the recent story about the defunct Shrimp Boats chain. Would you believe that there is a connection, admittedly a tenuous one, between that chain and all the queso dip that you ate too much of with your buddies in high school? Read on!
Everybody recognizes this really weird building on Buford Highway, which has been home to several different restaurants called Cafe 101. But once upon a time, it was an Oogleblook, which is what really interested me. What in the world, you might fairly ask, is an Oogleblook? Read on.
This might not be the easiest place on Buford Highway to find, but it is definitely one of our favorites. Bring lots of friends and plan to share a big meal here.
This is a pretty good conversion of a former fast food restaurant into a small, sit-down place where guests can watch soccer and enjoy basic cuisine from several Central American traditions, including a toddler-pleasing pile of fries and sliced, fried, salty hot dogs.
