As often happens, our dinner at Stockyard Burgers and Bones wasn’t part of the original plan.  It was Christmas Adam (the day before Christmas Eve), and we had dinner reservations elsewhere but, as the menu there changes weekly, when we arrived, nothing jumped out at us.  Or even appealed to us.  We understand that, with […]

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, […]

Several months back, I heard that someone was smoking whole hog barbecue in northwest Atlanta.  I made a mental note and figured that I would hear more about it and get there soon enough.
