Dooky Chase’s Restaurant – New Orleans, LA

In conversation with several of the folks I work with, I had mentioned that we were going to Willie Mae’s for lunch on Friday.  Several said “if you’re going to Willie Mae’s for chicken, you really need to go to Dooky Chases’s Restaurant“.  So after roaming around several of the suburbs on a shopping expedition, […]

Willie Mae’s Scotch House – New Orleans, LA 

Willie Mae’s Scotch House has been on my “to-try” list on the last half dozen trips to New Orleans, but business concerns haven’t aligned with the ability to get there.  I first read about it in Garden & Gun’s “100 Southern Foods You Absolutely, Positively Must Try Before You Die”, several years back and today, […]

Zesto – Atlanta, GA

One day you look around and you realize that you’ve never said a word about someplace that you may eaten at all of your life. So, here goes. First, it’s Zesto – not Zesto’s, as most people (including me) say.  They’ve been open, in Atlanta, since 1949, with four locations here (and one in Tyrone) […]

Table & Main – Roswell, GA

For the last six months, at the least, everyone has been telling me how good the fried chicken was at Table & Main.  But here’s the thing – you just can’t get to Roswell from our house at any time between 6:00 am – 10:00 pm.  Which really puts a damper on eating there.  Earlier […]

The Local – Marietta, GA

Today’s adventure began with errand running in Kennesaw, which led to being in the Marietta area for lunch.  I remembered that I had seen a place on the complete opposite corner of the Square from the Butcher and the Baker that served “Breakfast and Lunch”, that I wanted to try, but I couldn’t remember the […]

Tanner’s in Suwanee – Suwanee, GA

Back in the “old days”, which for the purposes of this post were the early 90s, we used to eat at a Tanner’s Chicken, at the corner of Indian Trail Road and Highway 29.  In fact, we ate there quite a lot.  Primarily because one of our sales guys ate nothing but steak or chicken […]

Horseradish Grill – Atlanta, GA

For Saturday night , we had a change of times for dinner, necessitating a change of locations.   Horseradish Grill won the coin toss.  I’ve known of Horseradish Grill for years but, for whatever reasons,  we’ve never been.  Arriving about 6:30, we were surprised at how empty it was.  And even moreso that we were seated […]

Otter’s Chicken – Marietta, GA

About a month ago, as we drove by the Villages at West Cobb, I said, again, “We’ve got to eat at Otter’s Chicken one day.”  Today, when our original lunch plans changed, I named it and claimed it.  You have to love a place with the slogan, “If the Colonel had our chicken, he’d be […]

Chicken World – Hiram, GA

I became intrigued with going to Chicken World when I first saw the big billboard on Hwy 278 advertising their chicken cheddar cheese fries.  How can that combination not be excellent?  On this Friday evening, it became our destination.  When we arrived, right at 6:00, the place was completely empty.  How odd.  The walls were […]

Ink & Elm – Decatur, GA – CLOSED

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED. Ink & Elm is getting quite a lot of press of late – including the feature dining review in the “Best of” issue of Atlanta magazine and breaking into the “heat map” last month.  We originally planned to go to Decatur on Saturday, with Sobban as our goal.  But when […]
