K & K Soul Food – Atlanta, GA

Today’s lunch is at another spot sent to me from the pages of Garden N Gun – K&K Soul Food.  (It’s like these pages speak to me – “if we fry it, you will come.”)  K & K has been in business for fifty years, and I’ve been seeing it on one version of my […]

Das BBQ

Sometimes, it feels like a place is just trying too hard – that’s my summary for this visit . Today, we headed to Das BBQ, after seeing it featured in Atlanta Eats and then getting a confirming positive vote from a lunch mate, yesterday.  In all the pre-opening press, owner Stephen Franklin talks about wanting […]

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 – […]
