Atlantans! Where's the good soul food?
Yes, there's BBQ (which merits its own threads, at least!) for which you have Daddy D'z for get-down funky, as well as several corporate chains.
You've also got Miss Ann's just southwest of Kirkwood, with the Ghetto Burger and "no cursing allowed while dining here, please!" I swear, that burger could turn a high-pressure, coffee-fueled yuppie into a mellow couch-based potato human for at least an afternoon and an evening!
But I'm talking Soul Food. That cooked-all day goodness, just like you always secretly wished your grandma could make.
There's "This Is It" near Avondale Estates, with BBQ and fish. Scrumptious fare, whether you want half a chicken, or some catfish. Friendly folks, too!
Check out Busy Bee cafe on MLK drive. I just moved near here, so expect a bigger review in Future.
I've gotta confess a weakness for island soul food! Slow-cooked, spicy rich chicken with cabbage and cornbread? ooh yes! Oxtails? Yes, ma'am! I highly recommend the All Island Cafe, out east of town on Memorial Drive. Go there to eat, and drink lemonade or home-made fruit punch with your chicken or 'tails. If you catch the timing just right - when the chicken's been marinating for hours, but the newer batch isn't up yet, you're in for an eye-watering, life-changing experience, let me tell you!
Please, good people, tell me more! Where are the unheard-of spots where good folks turn out great food?
