Their name comes from the fact that they're infusing all of your favorite, traditional dishes with innovative touches and twists. Try their chicken penne, which comes with a cajun tomato sauce, or one of their eight (yes, eight) flavors of waffles, from red velvet to Georgia peach pie.
Unequivocally proving fried foods make you live forever, Nana G's is a red/white/blue meal rig run by the family of a breakfast-cookin' ATL centenarian (check the drawing of her on the truck), using natural ingredients from local farms to make every Southerner's favorite battercake/bird combo. Each waffle gets powdered sugar, maple syrup, and bacon plus two pieces of fried chicken in extra-sauced combos like "Papa G's" w/ hot sauce, or the Bananas Foster-topped "Auntie P's", also what your uncle told a young you when asked why they have separate beds.
At its core, Bantam & Biddy is a Southern diner: affordable comfort food is king. Its flagship location, on a corner of Ansley Mall, sports a hickory bar with craft cocktails, and orange banquettes with rooster-embellished cushion pins, as you'd expect from a Southern diner. At all of its locations across Atlanta, Bantam & Biddy gives high-quality, regionally-sourced proteins (poultry and seafood alike) and seasonal vegetables the Southern treatment, resulting in dishes like buttermilk-fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, Creole shrimp po-boys, and braised collards.
From the “The Empress of Soul” herself, GKRWCW is the undisputed bastion of Atlanta chicken and waffles. With brunch all day, this down-home, Southern eatery serves up all the classic dishes you could want, including fried green tomatoes, collared green spring rolls, and more.
Open for lunch, dinner & brunch, this award-winning Midtown restaurant puts a contemporary twist on classic Southern cooking.
This East Atlanta Village hot spot has a game room, over 130 brews, signature cocktails (along with frequent drink specials!) and a spacious patio to enjoy all of the above. Enjoy cripsy pimiento cheese fritters and jalapeño bacon jam while sampling a flight of beer.
10th & Piedmont's a "celebration lounge" focuses squarely on artisanal vodkas and shared plates. Check 'em out for a laid-back, swanky feel, plus some of the best chicken and waffles in the ATL.
Asha Gomez is heeding the demand for her monthly Spice Route supper club with brick-and-mortar Cardamom Hill, in which she serves upscale Indian in a relaxed, woodsy den with rosewood walls, a thick community table, and a canopy-covered front bar with cut-out sections for assorted pottery.
