How Crispy Express – Atlanta

After the grouper sandwich search found at FishMonger, the next sandwich on the list was from How Crispy Express. This former pop up, now in a storefront in Summerhill is just across the patio from Wood’s Chapel. I’ve seen the signage several times but never gone in. I’ve also browsed the menu on-line, several times, […]

Chattahoochee Food Works – Atlanta, GA (Quick Bite)

In these pandemic times, for all of us, the world has changed. We still eat three meals a day, but for the last eighteen months very few of them have been “out”, particularly at a new restaurant. On this fall Saturday, we made an outing to IKEA. Since we were already hazarding the universe at […]

Snappy Lunch – Mt. Airy, NC

While in Wilkesboro, NC, for MerleFest, we went roaming one day to Mt. Airy.  Most famous as the hometown of Andy Griffith, it is promoted as a modern-day Mayberry – right down to Floyd’s barber shop and a Mayberry police car parked on Main Street.  But we were there for a different purpose – the […]

Bleu House Market – Norcross, GA

I love the chance to meet one of my girls for lunch.  And when the lunch spot, unbeknownst to us, ends up being a barbecue spot, it’s a double win.  Looking for some place new to try, one of her co-workers told her that the Market, in Norcross, was her “kind of place”.  Unsure what […]

Souper Jenny – Atlanta, GA

Souper Jenny is another place that has been on my list for a decade.   But the location that put them there, in Buckhead, on West Andrews and only being open for lunch Monday – Saturday made them really hard to get to.   Souper Jenny’s four Atlanta locations are part of Planet Jenny – […]

Bubba Mac’s – Douglasville, GA 

I’d been talking about going to Bubba Mac’s for over a decade, but there never seemed to be the right time.   They had been located on Highway 92, just north of downtown Douglasville, since 1997 but we never seemed to make it in (there location was not conducive to my traffic patterns, but they’ve developed […]

Yalla – Atlanta, GA

Last month, when we visited Fred’s Meat and Bread, while we were in line Jo was eying the menu and counter at Yalla, a fast-fresh Mediteranean / contemporary Israeli foodstand.  Yalla is a next door neighbor and sister restaurant to Fred’s, and another restaurant from Todd Ginsberg.  The menu is quite simple – you can […]

Fred’s Meat & Bread – Atlanta, GA

We were heading from Little Five Points toward Midtown, down Dekalb Avenue, when the need for lunch beckoned.  Originally planning to look for Thai (for the fourth time this week*), as we turned onto Krog Street, I remembered having read about the market just opening.  We parked a couple of blocks away and walked back, […]

Victory Sandwich Bar – Decatur, GA

I don’t remember where I first heard of Victory Sandwich Bar (possibly the Eater 38), but when we were looking for lunch heading from the southeast quadrant of 285 to downtown, Decatur seemed like a convenient stop.  We headed into downtown Decatur, found a place on the street to park and walked into a nearly […]

Brown Bag Deli & Cafe – Suwanee, GA

Out roaming on my own again at lunch time, I headed up to Suwanee Town Center, thinking that there must be a couple of places there that I had not yet tried.  One of the first “new-to-me” places I saw was Brown Bag Deli & Cafe and my decision was made.  I parked in front […]
