Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar – Smyrna, GA

I’ve driven by Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar several times in the last year.  They’re at the corner of Atlanta and Spring roads in the Jonquil Center in Smyrna.  On this Saturday, as we were roaming about, we ended up in that area around the time for a late lunch.  It was a rainy afternoon, so […]

Yakitori Jinbei – Smyrna, GA

A recent article on Yelp was talking about the best ramen places in Atlanta and Yakitori Jinbei, in Smyrna, made the list.  Who knew that they have ramen in Smyrna?  My beloved wife was thrilled that they brought us some kimchi cucumber to start.  She finished her bowl and started on mine.  As I tend […]

Porch Light Latin Kitchen – Smyrna, GA

Sometime last month, I saw an online article from Atlanta Magazine about a new Latin restaurant that had opened (or was about to open) in Smyrna, Porch Light Latin Kitchen.*  Always excited when something new opens OTP on the west side, I googled their website and saved it in my phone.  I’ve thought about going […]

Crafty Hog – Smyrna, GA

I discovered  the Crafty Hog in an article earlier this year in the Atlanta Business Chronicle about new barbecue places in the metro and made a note of a new place on the west side.  Then we actually drove by it about a month ago, but not near time for food.  When is not a […]

Old South Bar-B-Q – Smyrna, GA

On a rare Saturday afternoon without any plans (including for lunch), we found ourselves on the road between Austell and Kennessaw. As we were meeting some folks for dinner, I saw a chance to knock another restaurant off my “list” – Staq’s BBQ in Smyrna. They’ve been on the list since the 2011 Atlanta Magazine […]

Table 33 (formerly Crepe Revolution) – Smyrna, GA

I remember reading about Crepe Revolution last spring, in the Atlanta Magazine Cheap Eats edition, and had put it on “the list”, but had never made it by for a meal. Today when we were making a brunch/lunch choice, with a later shopping destination in Marietta, was the perfect opportunity. Located right off 285 on […]

Little Azio – Smyrna, GA

Looking for Italian food with my oldest near her apartment in Smynings, we remembered that there was Little Azio in the same shopping center as Muss & Turners and South City Kitchen.  We have eaten at the Peachtree Street Little Azio a couple of times and I recalled it being fairly good Italian food served […]

Muss & Turner’s – Atlanta, GA

Since we discovered Muss & Turner’s about two years ago, we’ve eaten there at least once a month, often twice.  It’s a convenient  choice, either if we’re in the Vinings area, or, since it is only about a twenty-five minute drive from the house, most any other time.  We have a couple of favorites that […]

Thompson Brothers’ Barbecue – Atlanta, GA

So I keep these three “lists” of places that I want to eat in my trunk (I also have a digital version in my phone) – all for places in Atlanta.  One Saturday in July, I decided to venture out in the quest for ‘que.  Thompson Brothers BBQ, in the Cumberland / Smyrna area (right […]

Heirloom Market – Atlanta, GA

A friend sent me a review of this “new” barbecue place near Marietta (it’s in that “odd part” of the city of Atlanta where I-75 & I-285 intersect) and asked me if I’d been.  The AJC only gave it two stars, but I kept it in mind.  One Saturday night, Jo and I were over […]
