The season that gives Atlanta its horrible nickname has only just begun, but you've already got lots of things to do, from road trips to hitting the city's best summertime date spots, and doing said lots of things will require energy, so we've thoughtfully identified nine calorie-filled things you've gotta eat in the ATL this summer...

The Optimist (address and info)

You be the judge, but its incredibly fresh, massive peel-and-eat Georgia shrimp with tangy comeback sauce and sopping toast sure does make a convincing case.
