Slope’s BBQ – Cumming, GA

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a barbecue snob.  I’ve known it for a while, but today really drove the point home.  When I leave this much on a plate, it’s just not a good sign.. Slopes’s BBQ has been on a secondary list of Atlanta area barbecue joints since July of 2010. They […]

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 […]

Golden Seven Two – Suwanee, GA

In the continuing exploration of places around my office that I haven’t eaten, today’s episode took me up Buford Highway to Suwanee Town Center.  I’ve dined at most of the places currently there (and a couple that are no longer) and drove all the way to the Lawrenceville-Suwanee end of the complex before finding Golden […]

Stockyard Burgers and Bones – Marietta, GA

Nueva San Salvador Bakery – Hiram, GA

Even with it having been open for over a year (they opened in November 2016), I had no idea that we had a Salvadoran restaurant in Hiram.  But, on Saturday, when I ran to Office Max to pick something up, there was Nueva San Salvador Bakery, in the same strip mall.  I got so excited, […]

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 […]

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 […]
