Prepare to put on a few pounds if you plan on touring the culinary delights of the South. Rich with cream and butter, farm-fresh and steeped in tradition, these classic Southern dishes will make you feel right at home when you’re visiting Atlanta.


Home Grown

A popular appetizer that any Southerner will tell you they like (even if they don’t), fried green tomatoes are best piping hot, made with tomatoes picked an hour ago. Home Grown offers the best of both fresh and affordable, with their various breakfast and lunch offerings. You can get a plate of their fried green tomatoes with horseradish sauce for only $3.50.

Any meal is also perfectly paired with a side of fluffy buttermilk biscuits made from scratch and smothered in a heaping ladle-full of gravy. Open since the 1960s, The Silver Skillet has been featured in numerous television shows and movies, and their fame runs further than their biscuits at breakfast, as they’ve received numerous awards for their pies as well.


Pie Shop

There’s no better way to end a hot summer day in Georgia than with a glass of sweet tea and a slice of pie, topped with a scoop of melting vanilla ice cream. Go to the Pie Shop for more than 100 flavors of pies, both savory and sweet, which change regularly. For a truly Southern experience, get a slice of the Bourbon Pecan, or you can try something a bit more whimsical like their Pink Lemonade Pie.

South City Kitchen

Whether you’re eating breakfast, lunch or dinner, shrimp and grits is an acceptable combination for the occasion. South City Kitchen has a rendition of this dish on their Southern Specialties menu that Atlanta natives rave about, made complete with an addition of ham and tomato gravy.


Miller Union

Pie not your thing? Skip over to Miller Union, where you can try a non-traditional dessert option that still incorporates beloved Southern flavors. You can find such offerings as sweet potato cake with a bourbon sauce and Meyer lemon custard with molasses crisps on the menu.


Whatever your reason for visiting, take time to enjoy some of the best food that the city has to offer!

But not all scarves are created equal. In fact, some scarves are created solely for traveling.
