Stilesboro Biscuits – Kennesaw, GA 

A few months ago, one of the fellows at a bluegrass jam mentioned that there was a Saturday morning jam at Stilesboro Biscuits.  I had never heard of the place and put it in the back of my head for later.  Several weeks later, I asked him about it again and he said that the jam […]

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 […]

Trackside Grill – Kennesaw, GA

As we were leaving church on Sunday morning, we saw my nephew and his wife in the parking lot and they mentioned that they were heading to the Big Shanty Festival in Kennesaw that afternoon.  We hadn’t heard of the festival, or planned to go, but Jo was curious and I thought that there might […]

Manna House – Marietta, GA

After almost a six-mile hike at Kolb Farm, we had worked up quite an appetite.  As we were almost in Marietta, I remembered reading, in the article about Alton Brown’s favorite spots that he was fond of the “super funky soul food” at Manna House.  We were less than ten minutes away from downtown […]

The Butcher and the Baker – Marietta, GA

You know how baseball players and point guards get in hitting or shooting slumps?  We were in a fine dining slump.  It seems as if the majority of the last new, nice places that we went had gone to had been disappointing.  (Sure barbecue joints, diners and ethnic restaurants can be nice, but I’m talking […]
