Nick’s Food to Go on the corner of Hill Street and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard might not look like much, but the Greek take-out eatery is a favorite with locals and food aficionados throughout Atlanta. Nick, his wife and their grown children operate the restaurant, adding a dash of authentic flair. The gyro platter, which includes a Greek salad and Greek fries on the side, is one of the most popular dishes. Anyone with room for dessert can try the baklava.
This local legend is billed as the world's biggest drive-in and has been a staple on the Atlanta dining scene since 1928. Countless burgers, fries, shakes and more than two miles of hot dogs are served here every day, along with more Coca-Cola than anywhere else in the world. Dine in your car, seat yourself in one of the many cafeteria-style rooms, or simply order your greasy lunch at the 150-foot (46-meter) long stainless-steel counter and go. The white-tiled diner theme is a welcome throwback to days when drive-ins ruled the fast food scene.
Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand is located in a renovated industrial space and is renowned for its 'Slinger,' an artisan sausage made from natural chicken and spices without any preservatives. The brainchild of Flying Biscuit Cafe owner Delia Champion and her friend Molly Gunn, the food here is organic and yummy. Though the eatery is small, it is always brimming with patrons no matter what the time is. Delia's also has treats for vegans and vegetarians who can relish on delish sliders. Dig into their hearty breakfast dishes before heading for work.
Located in the new Westside complex, Taqueria Del Sol is quietly building a reputation for its high-quality, yet inexpensive Mexican fare. The interior is rather eclectic and funky, with exposed ductwork and an abundance of wrought iron. A wide variety of Mexican dishes includes all the traditional favorites, but their emphatic specialty is tacos. You'll find a nearly impossible variety of taco combinations, with fish, shrimp, and other odd options. Taqueria Del Sol also has a full bar with a wide selection of cervezas and tequila. See website for menus, maps, photos, and Decatur location.
Ann's Snack Bar is an Atlanta establishment. This simple little eatery has won national acclaim for its delicious selection of hot dogs and burgers. The must have item is the Ghetto Burger: a big double cheeseburger loaded with bacon and chili. Not that there's any bad choice here. The owner, Ann, may even join you for your meal and regale you with tales of her many years of business.
