OK Cafe is taking the term “cafeteria-style” back from the hair net crowd. Their version of mac and cheese is a heavenly blend of rich spirals that absolutely grab every ounce of buttery gel and keep it on your fork for the anticipatory journey between bowl and your mouth. But don't stop there! Sample any of the other diner-chic options.
For over 30 years, (in what used to be an old lady’s house in Midtown), Vickery’s has stood the test of time. Their fried mac and marinara is surely a brunch best-bet, but with lots of delicious offerings, you'll find comfort food to satisfy any time of day.
An Atlanta institution serving up solid BBQ fare like pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches, Frito pie, and burnt ends. We think that Fox Bros Bar-B-Q serves up some of the best BBQ in town, but you'll have to stop by and see for yourself.
Open for lunch, dinner & brunch, this award-winning Midtown restaurant puts a contemporary twist on classic Southern cooking.
Richard Blais of Top Chef fame is dishing out fancified American eats at his Midtown resto.
The Barrelhouse is just a downright easy-going neighborhood pub that can satiate your appetite for anything from a snack, to a brew, to a full meal.
Located inside the Four Seasons, Park 75's an upscale restaurant and bar serving contemporary dishes in a relaxing atmosphere, which includes a terrace garden.
This sibling-owned bar and restaurant in Little Five Points is a self-proclaimed "Official Idiot-Free Zone," and they're notorious for kicking out rude or high-maintenance customers to create a laid-back and fun crowd (they're usually pretty young, too). It's hard to imagine why anyone here would be picky with their food when they've got such a massive selection of whopping, diverse signature burgers like the Hawaiian-themed Freaky Tiki and the Holy Guacamole (self-explanatory), along with a hefty selection of local draft beers (and beer cocktails), cocktails and shooters.
