1. OK Cafe 1284 W Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30327 (West Atlanta)

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.

8. The Vortex 438 Moreland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307 (Little 5 Points)

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.
