Alright... I'm going to Atlanta on business next week. I'll be there by myself for the first and last day. I need to know the two places for a meal that I can't miss. I've been to Mary Mac's and Varsity.

When you get there just look for the well dressed guy.

That'll be him.

I bet they have the freshest Coca Cola on the planet there. You should tour the plant and see if you can get a sample straight out of the coke vat thingie.

You can get fresh Coke out of any fountain, but I find it best at Chick-Fil-A.

Atlanta has thousands of restaurants, what kind of food do you want? Local only, or just not where you live?

If you're going to be in town on Thursday, I highly recommend Taco Mac or Stats for your draft viewing, food eating, beer drinking pleasure. Stats if you're downtown, Taco Mac is everywhere else and has hundreds of beers to shove down your gullet.

Stay north of I-20, you don't want to visit that part of Atlanta. LMAO

Fogo de Chão if you like meat. Really.
Spondovits is a pretty cool bar and grill that has outstanding seafood.
Ruth Chris = awesome steaks
BBQ ... yeah, nevermind.
Sweetwater Brewing Company has lots awesome micro brews and is a fun place to hang out.

Ah, Stats! I spent some good time there last time - it was an easy walk from the hotel. :)

OK, I've heard of Fogo, sounds really good. Will consider that one... last time I went to Brazilian steakhouse, though, I came out feeling like I was sweating protein.

I am looking for strictly local, or very small chains.

I was gonna suggest pappadeaux too. It's not local to Atlanta but it's fairly small - Texas chain that rarely makes it out of Texas. Delicious food for a fair price.

I loved it.

I went there for a nerd convention and was amazed how well the locals/staff treated us.

There's a Japanese place me and Misplaced ate at that was great. Probably the 3rd best meal of my life. Can't remember the name but it was right there around the major hotels, about one or two blocks north...

I noticed after I posted the link that FMB is from Alabama so he might already have lots of options for cajun seafood.

I've been to the ones in Atlanta and Chicago. Both were outstanding, at least to someone from the upper midwest.

Fun Fact: Atlanta Metro has 375 Waffle Houses.

Probably the same amount of Huddle Houses?

Gladys Knight? That place has phenomenal fried-chicken, actually. But it's about 30mis north.

not even close, maybe 100 HH's - totally guessing - I'm dead serious, the metro area almost has 400 waffle houses, no joke.

MUCH better than KC and it's not even close, actually. I will never EVER move back to that shit hole - since we're speaking of armpits, and I'm FROM there. :evil:

I having trouble seeing the logic, unless you stayed in 'The Swats'

the drive through STL and KC = pink houses w/ debris off of i70 and the shit industry w/ rusty buildings and empty beer-bottles.

the drive through Atl = clean 6-lane 'well lit' freeways, no trash on the roads, or minimal. NEWER construction. Yeah, shitty town.

In all fairness, a lot of folks who visit Atlanta - only see CERTAIN parts, thus leaving them the feeling that the entire city MUST be the same.

Though it's spotty, this town is awesome. Nobody living here is a native, it seems. You never know what you're going to get. And the part I live in is just crammed packed w/ hot females and kick ass eateries and shopping. Hoov - if you ever come in town, give me a pm, I'd like to show you that it's not ALL like what you experienced.

Crime is bad in areas, no doubt about it.

but i'm going to the tavern now, with or without you - the scenery is to die for. Esp. on Thurs.

You need to go if you can, broheim. I'll lead the way with the shit-talking - you can follow like a lost tourist, and I'm fine with that. :evil::p

JK let me know bud - no sweat

One last note bud, If you can't meet - try to hit up Shout in downtown, the food is unique and it's really handy to your Notel.
