Otter’s Chicken – Marietta, GA

About a month ago, as we drove by the Villages at West Cobb, I said, again, “We’ve got to eat at Otter’s Chicken one day.”  Today, when our original lunch plans changed, I named it and claimed it.  You have to love a place with the slogan, “If the Colonel had our chicken, he’d be […]

Romano’s Macaroni Grill – Marietta, GA

Tonight, looking for something different in West Cobb, we decided to go to Romano’s Macaroni Grill, for the first time in four or more years.  We arrived at 5:30, just ahead of the dinner rush and, apparently, just ahead of much of the wait staff.  We were shown to a table and we waited for […]

Cosmopolitan Restaurant – Marietta, GA

When I was searching OpenTable for restaurant reservations, and a place on Delk Road popped up, I was intrigued.  I couldn’t think of a single restaurant that was there, except for where Spaghetti Warehouse used to be.  When we followed the GPS into the parking lot shortly after noon, I realized that’s exactly where we […]

Tasty China – Marietta, GA

Back in the beginning of my food quest, I carried around some paper lists in a plastic folder in the trunk.  Among those was a printout from Atlanta magazine from 2006 (or 2007) with a list of restaurants, by area of town.   One of the places that I remember from that list was Tasty China, […]

Righteous ‘Que – Marietta, GA

About two weeks ago, Grant from Marie, Let’s Eat, sent me an email suggesting that we find a barbecue place that neither one of us had written about and meet for lunch or dinner.  I told Jo about it and she said, “That’s sweet.  You have a “man-date””.   Then she cautioned that “it would […]
