South of Heaven – Carrollton, GA

On a random Saturday at home, we decided to head west to Carrollton to do a little shopping.  As we pulled into downtown, I recalled that some friends had told us about a new (less than a year old) barbecue place that had opened there.  After a brief consult on choices, we decided to give […]

Jones Bar-B-Q – Temple, GA

Stop number two on the Bankhead Highway barbecue run was at Jones Bar-B-Q in Temple.   According to Trip Advisor, Jones Bar-B-Q is the seventh best restaurant in Temple – it’s just ahead of Wendy’s, Subway and McDonald’s.   The bar, in Temple, does not appear to be particularly high.  There is another Jones Bar-B-Q: Jones Bar-B-Q […]

Chat and Choo – Villa Rica, GA

Today’s adventure takes us to the Chat and Choo (See what they did there? Choo versus Chew? It’s across the street from the railroad tracks), downtown in the City of Riches. In case you didn’t know, Villa Rica was the home of Georgia’s first gold rush, in 1826. As we parked and were crossing US […]

Jerry’s Gourmet Burgers – Villa Rica, GA

I don’t know where I heard about Jerry’s Gourmet Burgers, but, wherever it was, they didn’t lie. It is in a trailer, in the parking lot of a Texaco station, close to (and across the street from) Tanner Medical Center Villa Rica and they serve no drinks. Yep, not a drink on the menu. The […]
