2. Fado Irish Pub 273 Buckhead Ave, Atlanta, GA 30305 (Buckhead)

Stop by Fado's Irish Pub and Restaurant for a pint and delicious bar eats like their pork schnitzel sandwich. As far as we are concerned, that are the best and most authentic Irish pub in Atlanta and have the best Guinness in town.

5. Atkins Park Restaurant 794 N Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306 (Virginia Highland)

Atkins Park is Atlanta's oldest continually-running restaurant (it began as a deli in 1922), and the figurative cornerstone of Virginia-Highland. Over the years, it has remained relevant and beloved by Atlantans, with culinary creature comforts that have, and will continue to, stand the test of time (like a bunch of different burgers, mostly). The beer selection on offer beats many of the newer, trendier places in the Va-Hi district. At Atkins Park, family-friendly dining and late-night drinking coexist, which is the mark of a true neighborhood destination.

6. Meehan's Public House 232 19th St NW, Ste 7165, Atlanta, GA 30363 (Midtown)

Meehan's is your one stop shop for true Irish pubbiness, boasting knockout burgers and pints, right in the heart of Midtown. Check out their patio'd outdoor space for a brew and a bite. We think that Meehan's is the best Irish pub in Atlanta, but you'll have to stop by and see for yourself.

7. HOBNOB Tavern 1551 Piedmont Ave, Atlanta, 30324 (Atlanta)

Hobnob's a modestly sized neighborhood tavern with orange/yellow walls, candelabra chandeliers, a stone-ringed fireplace, and a heated patio, founded by the bros who gave you Gilbert's in Midtown, and offering blessedly inexpensive comfort food, craft beers, and even alcoholic milkshakes -- made with the real stuff, as they firmly refuse to bring all the soys to the yard.

8. Poor Calvin's 510 Piedmont Ave, Atlanta, GA 30308 (Downtown)

Poor Calvin's serves Asian fusion food with Thai and American influences. Check 'em out for their killer brunch, and some of the best chicken and waffles Atlanta has to offer.

10. Barcelona Wine Bar 240 N Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307 (Inman Park)

An Inman Park wine bar complete with unvarnished paneling, a brick fireplace, and a shaded wraparound patio, Barcelona delivers Spanish flair to Atlanta with more than 200 wines straight from Spain and, of course, tapas. In small portions, cozy couples at lantern-lit tables and big groups in polished booths split small plates of spicy roasted vegetables, rice, and meats like chorizo and thick cuts of grilled lamb.

11. The Brewhouse Cafe 401 Moreland Ave, Atlanta, GA 30307 (Little 5 Points)

Modestly self-billed as "Atlanta's BEST International Sports Bar", Brewhouse is definitely at least among the top examples, as it made our list of Favorite 5 Sports Bars thanks to its comfortably divey interior, TVs galore, daily pint specials (Terrapin/SweetWater Mondays, Leinenkugel's Thursdays -- keep the glass!), and a month-long $20 large pizza/Miller Lite pitcher combo... wait, they figured out how to get beer inside those little pretzel rolls too?! Amazing.

12. Two Urban Licks 820 Ralph McGill Blvd NE, Atlanta, GA 30306 (Inman Park)

The kitchen at Two Urban Licks is cooking up wood-fired meats and fish with a fiery kick. If you come here with a group, consider sharing some of their delectable small plates like salmon chips, lamb lollipops, and bronzed sea scallops. The warehouse space offers breathtaking views of the city, but the best part? Their epic 26-foot wine wall that holds 72 stainless steel barrels of wine from which the waiters pour directly.

13. Agave 242 Boulevard SE, Atlanta, GA 30312 (Cabbagetown)

From the name alone, it shouldn't be hard to tell that this place is into tequila. And boy are they, with nearly 100 varieties, including a couple that are 100+ proof (good luck, there). But Agave isn't a one-trick pony, as experienced head chef Jack Sobel is well-trained in Mexican-Southwest cuisine, serving up barbacoa enchiladas, tuna fish tacos, and fresh tenderloin fillets. Easy on the tequila, this is a meal you'll want to remember.

14. Bellwoods Social House 1000 Marietta St NW Ste 200, Atlanta, GA 30318

This Westside watering hole wants to fill you up with booze, beer, and what is instantly in the running for best bar food in the city: think PBR-brined wings, some pork shoulder tacos, and the best cocktails this side of Marietta St.

15. Bartaco 969 Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

This taco joint serves some of the best tacos in Westside, and we suggest trying the chef’s sampling of pork belly, duck, fried oyster, and whatever the hell else he can find meat-wise and slam between those luscious tortilla cheeks.

16. Yard House 261 19th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30363 (Atlantic Station)

The Yard House takes its name from a traditional yard-long British beer glass, but it made its fame from American opulence and hospitality. They feature a giant American fusion menu and 130 brew taps, available to drink out of various glass sizes for those who aren't ambitious enough to drink 3ft of beer.
