Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ – Birmingham, AL

Ever since I heard about the opening of Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog BBQ in Birmingham, I’ve been plotting a way to get there.  Not that it’s far (about 2 hours from home) but it’s not every day you can convince your wife to drive four hours, round-trip, for lunch.  You see, after our trip to […]

Wood’s Chapel BBQ – Atlanta, GA

Open for about two weeks when we visited, Wood’s Chapel BBQ, is in a new development on Georgia Avenue, just a couple of blocks from the former Turner Field.  From the team behind the General Muir, Fred’s Meat and Bread and Yalla (they also have partners from West Egg), they are another outpost for whole […]

El Tesoro – Atlanta, GA

A couple of weeks ago, I heard about the tacos and tortillas at El Tesoro and planned on making a trip.  Today, with a journey to Monroe in mind, we stopped by for breakfast.  Located on Arkwright Place, just parallel to Memorial Drive and just east of Moreland, we arrived toward the end of breakfast […]

Price’s Chicken Coop – Charlotte, NC

Before heading back home from a business trip to Charlotte, I had questioned a couple of the local attendees at the meetings about Charlotte institutions that we might not know about.  One of them mentioned Price’s Chicken Coop, which has been serving up hot, fresh fried chicken since 1962.  They were already on my radar […]

Brook’s Sandwich House – Charlotte, NC

As I’ve stated before, the impetus for this blog began with discovering the first edition of George Motz’s Hamburger America, during a lunch in 2007.  I decided that I’d make it one of my goals to eat as many of the 100 “best hamburgers” in the US, as I could, over the coming years.  The […]

Banshee – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, we were out and wandering about and I was shopping for snap button shirts.  We were in a vintage shop in Decatur and I was discussing the challenge of finding vintage Wranglers and Rustlers with another gentleman (we were both wearing and looking for the shirts).  Turned out, the other shopper was […]
