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 […]

Stilesboro Biscuits – Kennesaw, GA

The Rib Ranch – Marietta, GA

I’ve driven by the Rib Ranch for at least twenty years – it’s in a really awkward spot on Canton Highway, just east of I-75 that I am fairly certain that you cannot make a left into when heading east.   Or a right out of when you’re leaving.  There was a write-up about them in […]

Dough In the Box – Marietta, GA

My buddy, David, has told me several times how good the doughnuts are at Dough In the Box, but I never seemed to be by there when they were open (Tuesday – Sunday 5:00 am – 2:30 pm).  Today, after a check up over near Cobb hospital (now that the midnight-to-appointment-time-fast was over) was the […]

The Local – Marietta, GA

Today’s adventure began with errand running in Kennesaw, which led to being in the Marietta area for lunch.  I remembered that I had seen a place on the complete opposite corner of the Square from the Butcher and the Baker that served “Breakfast and Lunch”, that I wanted to try, but I couldn’t remember the […]
