Jim’s Smokin Que – Blairsville, GA

We’re coming to you today near the end of the Six Gap trail, in Blairsville, with lunch at Jim’s Smokin Que.  This spot comes to us courtesy of a Trip Advisor ranking of barbecue joints from a couple of years back, in which they ranked fairly highly, nationally.  Being on Six Gap trail, there were […]

Ssam Burger – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, there was an article on Eater.com about interesting burgers in Atlanta.  Ssam Burger, on Defoors Ferry popped up.   I had not heard about it, but with our love of the Korean / taco fusion at Hankook, why wouldn’t we like a Korean / burger place?

Sushi Huku 

As I was heading to meet some folks in Vinings, I went back to the well of the original list, once again, and looked at the options.  I found that Sushi Huku was on the list and on the way.  While it has a Sandy Springs address, it is right there at Akers Mill and Powers Ferry […]

Viande Rouge – Duluth, GA

Marietta Fish Market – Marietta, GA

We’ve eaten at other of the restaurants in the Tselios family of restaurants (Pasta Bella – I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about that place – and Casa Grande), but we have missed the three in Marietta.   Tonight, we knocked one of those off the list with Marietta Fish Market.  We were heading back […]
