Chinese Dhaba- Norcross, GA

Looking for something different for lunch one day, I wandered into the culinary-culturally diverse strip mall off Breckinridge.  I had been to most of the older restaurants there, at least once, but saw a new one, since last I visited – Chinese Dharba.  Their catch phrase “Chinese Food – Indian Twist” caught my eye.  One […]

Dreamland Barbecue – Duluth, GA

The newest location of Tuscaloosa’s Dreamland Bar-B-Que opened in the renovation of downtown Duluth’s Parson’s Alley, last summer.  The northeast side of town has been without a Dreamland since the Peachtree Corners location burned down several years ago.  At one time, there were three Atlanta locations – with the opening of this one, there are […]

Viande Rouge – Duluth, GA

I was heading into Atlanta from the office one evening for a concert and looking for a place to eat in between the two.  I have had Viande Rouge Steakhouse on my list for a while, but it’s a long haul back to Duluth for dinner, so I never seemed to make it.  Tonight, eating […]

Uncle Jack’s Meat House – Duluth, GA

In a space that most recently was Cotton and Corn, at the office, we’ve been watching the anticipated opening of Uncle Jack’s Meat House.  We eat next door (technically next door to next door), at Vinny’s, frequently and we heard, all summer, that they were opening in a couple of weeks.  This is the first […]

Yami Japan – Lawrenceville, GA

While I’m always on the hunt for some place new, today I was originally heading to Kingston 30, one of the Jamaican restaurants near the office.  But then I saw Yami Japan at the other end of the strip mall.  The $6.99 hibachi lunch special lured me in.  It’s a very simple setup, with the […]

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers – Duluth, GA

There’s always excitement when something new opens around the office.  It provides an opportunity to expand our rotation and, sometimes, to try some place new.  Or just some place that is “new to the area”.  I ate at mt first Freddy’s Steakburgers in Wichita (you can find that blog post here) and when I saw […]

Armando’s Caribe – Duluth, GA

So one day I’m sitting in the office and my boss walks in and says, “have you tried that new Cuban place in Duluth?” My eyes lit up like a kid at Christmas.  He took that as a no.  So a week later, we met for lunch at Armando’s Caribe Grill.  The name didn’t scream […]
