The buffet will certainly not leave you hungry.

Located just east of Atlanta’s iconic Centennial Park, Pittypat’s Porch has been serving up this home-style brunch since well before I was born. An Atlanta landmark in it’s own right, the historical element that the restaurant has will educate you about the history of Atlanta, and make you want to go back.

Some of the best fried chicken in Atlanta.

Another advantage of Pittypat’s Porch is the proximity to downtown and the ability to actually sit on the porch while you eat. It is a wonderful vantage point to dine on great southern fare, straddling of the old world charm and the new southern city, right from the front porch. There are plenty of rocking chairs so be ready for a relaxing and filling visit to Atlanta.

Now that fat Tuesday is behind us, you may wonder when the next chance you may get to enjoy some Cajun food.  If you are like me, I eat Cajun seafood at least once a week. With the level of spice and the variety of choices, Cajun food is certainly one of my all time favorite types of eating. If you have not made the trip to Douglasville in while( or ever),  make it a point to go downtown and stop by Gumbeaux’s Cajun Cafe.

Fun and flavor really get going on Tuesday night for shrimp night, and Thursday is also a party in your mouth during oyster night. The menu is a little long, but some classics are always waiting to please you, like the Pontchartrain or the Appaloosa . To be honest, I will order as many as three orders of various appetizers before I get my entree’.   The french quarter shrimp are divine, and the po-boys are also outstanding.

Shake Shack

Now I will admit that I may have never met a burger that I didn’t like.  However, meeting a burger that I love happens a lot more infrequently.  Until, of course, there was Shack Shack.  This does not mean that I am breaking up with my other burger joints around town, just that I may just have a new favorite in town.  There is just something about sitting on the roof top, looking down at the rest of Buckhead, and sinking your teeth into one of these babies.

Hamburgers from Shake Shack

Similar to how the hamburger itself looks down at most of my favorite foods. There is just something simple and carnivorously satisfying to having a really good burger. It really makes you feel like you are on the top of the food chain and things could not get any better.

You have to do yourself a favor every once in a while. When you are ready, treat yourself to a delicious rib-eye steak at Bones.  This steak may change your life and you may cease looking at steaks the same again. The folks down at Bones are ready to blow your taste-buds away. Just saying it- “22 oz., bone in, dry aged, rib-eye steak”  brings a smile you your face. Indulge.
