Finding good barbecue is like a sport sometimes. You have to get out there and do a little work to find it. Well, look no further than Community Q in Decatur and score a barbecue touchdown!
Whether you want brisket (sliced) or pork (ribs and pulled), Community Q will satisfy. The sides are also delicious. I personally go for the macaroni and cheese as well as the greens. They also have a rub for sale, which I must say, is really good and has found its way onto a lot of the dishes I have made recently. If you do much barbecuing at home and are looking for rubs to try, this “butt rub” is exceptional.
Growing up in Atlanta, it has always been tough to find a Po’boy worthy of some of the ones I’ve had in New Orleans and other gulf areas. Introducing the Crawfish Po’boy from The Crawfish Shack. This particular sandwich will transport you to the French Quarter without having to go there. Plenty of crawfish and delicious roumalade make this one a classic for me.

Another one of my personal all time favorites is the softshell crab plate. Why did I not know about softshell crab for so long? That’s another conversation, but I am making up for lost time now.
With great seafood and a great price, Crawfish Shack is one of my goto spots.
The best restaurants, in my opinion, manage to provide great food and a great experience without trying to hard to over do things. The rustic ambiance of Six Feet Under, along side a dozen oysters and a cool Sweetwater 420 – 16 ouncer, makes this a perfect place for food and friends.
A dozen Gulf Oysters
My personal favorite place to be here is on the appetizer menu. after several rounds of the “rat toes”- a bacon wrapped, shrimp stuffed jalapeno, and a few dozen oysters, I am usually in pretty good spirits!
When it comes to the classics, you have to make time to try one of the oldest and best french restaurants in Atlanta- Petite Auberge. Located in the Toco Hills shopping center, Petite Auberge will satisfy you when you are craving these all time classic dishes. Well prepared food and a friendly staff will certainly make your experience a good one.

Well everyone, I always like going out to eat, but sometimes, the best dishes are made right at home. I was feeling light, so I decided to make myself a salad. I love a good seared tuna steak so I had a plan. Salad and Tuna plus I made the mango habanero salsa to really get things going. There it is, Light, flavorful and served in the comfort of my own home. Bon Appetit!
