You do know what apple picking in north Georgia means, right? It means barbecue, even more than it means apples. Here’s the first of two stops that we made one Saturday last month.
It’s worth driving to Chattanooga for the original stores in this small chain, but is it worth driving to the top end perimeter?
This restaurant opened its first location in New York last spring, and now it wants to be the best pizza in Atlanta. It’s already won over one skeptic; how’d it do with Marie?
We’ve been to the east Cobb location of this restaurant a few times, but never sampled the second store. You don’t seem to be able to get a mustard-based barbecue sauce here, unfortunately…
I had an interesting lunch last month at a place on Piedmont where the souls of quite a few defunct restaurants have all collided.
On a recent trip to Athens, Marie was surprised to find a new restaurant chain based in Charleston occupying the space previously home to a different chain based in Charleston.
We were invited to visit the newest location of this growing chain, and learned that they have major expansion plans to several southeastern cities over the next three years.
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.
I like this food, but I don’t quite understand why it’s sold under three different names in town. Wouldn’t it make more sense to have just one name for the three restaurants and the food truck?
This restaurant at Atlantic Station has won some pretty impressive awards over the years, and the new executive chef has brought this nice space a brand new menu with some original and very fun choices.
For the 300th barbecue restaurant to get a visit for our blog, I took a trip south of Atlanta to a place that has won several awards – and, to be fair, a few tepid reviews – for its pulled pork. Our verdict? It’s worth the drive!
There is an intersection in Rockdale County where two barbecue restaurants have been doing business within sight of each other, and trading off awards from the local paper in alternating years.
The notion had been to meet in Dunwoody for supper, but Marie picked a place several miles north that really surprised us. This is probably the best Thai restaurant that we have visited so far.
Chains like this do not have the best reputation among hobbyists. I accepted an invitation to see whether that was fair, and learned a very neat local story about how the business made it through its first, very tough winter in the 1980s.
