Shorty’s – Tucker, GA

On my (not-so-shorty) list for almost a decade, I’ve thought about going to Shorty’s Pizza on at least half a dozen occasions.   The original opened on North Druid Hills and they later opened the Tucker location where we dined tonight.  Realizing we were going to be close to our youngest daughter’s house, we invited her […]

Chicago’s Nancy’s Pizza – Atlanta, GA

With a meeting down town that ran through my typical lunch hour, by the time that it was over I was building a ferocious hunger.  Some one had recently told me how much they enjoyed the deep dish, Chicago-style pizza at Nancy’s, on Ponce.   I was heading north from downtown on Piedmont and made […]

Old 4th Ward Pizza – Atlanta, GA

Back in January, I saw that Old 4th Ward Pizza had opened in, you guessed it, the Old 4th Ward, in the Irwin Street Market.  They make grandma-style pizza and appear to be the only folks in town making that kind of pizza.  By the name, one would guess that it’s pizza like your grandma […]

Thirteen Pies – Atlanta, GA

Our newlywed daughter and son-in-law have set an admirable food goal for the summer – knock as many places off Creative Loafing’s 100 places to Eat in Atlanta list as they can.  When they called and asked if we’d like to meet for dinner, I told them to pick a spot from the list, in […]

Oz Pizza – Fairburn, GA

On this rainy Saturday evening, we headed down to Fairburn to meet up with some friends to see “110 in the Shade” at the theater downtown.  They had picked up the tickets for a group of ten of us and we said that we’d meet at Oz Pizza for dinner before the show.  We arrived […]

Baraonda Ristorante & Bar – Atlanta, GA

As the Holiday weekend approached, Grant e-mailed and asked if we were going to be in town for the weekend and might want to meet he and Marie and have dinner.  We compared notes of places that neither had been, and decided on Baraonda Ristorante & Bar.  The name was on my list, but I […]

LPC (La Pietra Cucina) – Atlanta, GA

LPC (La Pietra Cucina) is a place that I’ve had on a list for several years, but never visited.  Today, as I was heading back toward the office from a meeting downtown, I realized that I had time to stop in for a bite.  It was a late lunch, on a Monday, and I had […]
