Smitty’s Lockdown BBQ – Marietta, GA

After a little shopping in Marietta, we had time for lunch before we had to be downtown.  I had seen Smitty’s Lockdown BBQ, the last few times we had been on this part of Canton Rd. Today, we had time to stop in and arrived in time for lunch. Open since late 2016, I had […]

The Nest – Kennesaw, GA

Unless you can read small print, you’d be hard pressed to know that The Nest is a barbecue place.  Unless, as you were driving down Cherokee Street, heading into downtown Kennesaw, you saw the two smokers below on the street.  That may be why they are there, as opposed to in the parking lot out […]

Stockyard Burgers and Bones – Marietta, GA

As often happens, our dinner at Stockyard Burgers and Bones wasn’t part of the original plan.  It was Christmas Adam (the day before Christmas Eve), and we had dinner reservations elsewhere but, as the menu there changes weekly, when we arrived, nothing jumped out at us.  Or even appealed to us.  We understand that, with […]

Tom + Chee – Kennesaw, GA 

Over the last ten months, I’ve eaten at two different Tom+Chee restaurants, on three different occasions.  Ever since I was a kid, I’ve LOVED grilled cheese and tomato soup together and thought the idea of a restaurant focused on that pairing was brilliant.  These guys got their big start on Shark Tank and have now […]

Pho Hoang Long – Smyrna, GA

You could say that this pho was just what the doctor ordered.  Well, kind of.  The last time I saw my GP, we were talking about my diet and he asked if I liked Asian food.  I mentioned where we had eaten recently and he said no, you need to go here, instead, for Vietnamese […]

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 […]

Bub-Ba-Q – Woodstock, GA

Bub-Ba-Q is a place that popped onto my radar with an Atlanta Magazine article from July of 2010 which, after their ranking of the top 5 BBQ places, listed the other places they had tried, by county.  This list was invaluable, providing places I had no idea about.   Now Cherokee County isn’t a place […]
