1. Nuevo Laredo Cantina 1495 Chattahoochee Avenue NW, Atlanta, GA 30318 (West Atlanta)

While working for ATL giant Coca-Cola in the 1960s, current restaurateur Chance Evans took frequent trips to Mexico, presumably to figure out just how they made that much-coveted Mexican Coke. Anyway, those trips inspired Evans to open his own restaurant, which he's ensured is serving only the best, most authentic South-of-the-Border dishes, including huevos rancheros, chicken mole, chalupas, and more.

4. Home Grown 968 Memorial Dr SE, Atlanta, GA 30316 (East Atlanta)

Home Grown is the kind of diner that will feed any and all cravings. The breakfast and lunch menu features diet-killing comfort plates like the Billy Boy, a whipped cream-topped stack of chocolate chip pancakes with a side of home fries and a Coke, ten kinds of biscuit sandwiches, and fried bologna on grilled Texas toast. While everything here is worth sampling, the open-faced Comfy Chicken Biscuit (crisp and juicy fried chicken atop a buttery biscuit and drowned in creamy sausage gravy) has been called one of the best things to eat in all of Georgia.

A neighborhood tavern with tasty bar eats that're actually affordable -- they've got a whole 10-10 menu stocked with 10 items for $10 or less. We're pretty sure Charlie Sheen would call that winning.
