The 10 Best Pizzerias in Atlanta

Todd Brock 11 comments

Damn if Atlanta didn't go and turn itself into a bona fide pizza town when no one was looking. Pie fanatics could do a lot worse than booking a flight to Hartsfield-Jackson International and immersing themselves in our city's pizzascape for a few days. More

Our Top 10 Burgers in Atlanta

Todd Brock 18 comments

Some of my top burgers in Atlanta are traditional in style; some stray toward my personal penchant for crazy. You don't have to agree with all my choices, but trust my palate enough to know that every burger on this list is worth seeking out, whether you're a lifelong ATLien or just passing through on a long layover.

Suburban Pies That Compete With the Big Boys at Atlanta's Campania Pizzeria Napoletana

Slice Todd Brock 5 comments

Tucked in with a smoke shop, a car stereo dealer, and a vendor of coins and firearms, Campania is pumping out top 10 list-caliber pies and may just be the best-kept pizza secret in town. For now. More

Illegal Food Is Making One of Atlanta's Best Burgers Out of a Tiny Bar Kitchen

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 5 comments

The Hank is one of those burgers you can't put down, for two reasons. One, you know you'll never get a decent handle on it again if you try to reposition it. Two, it's that outrageously spectacular. More

Jeff Varasano on Baking, Branding, and the Business of Pizza (Part 2)

Slice Lance Roberts 19 comments

Last time, internet pizza legend (and creator of the most famous pizza recipe in the world) Jeff Varasano talked about the challenges of opening a pizzeria and why he's stayed out of the spotlight the last few years. Today, he goes in depth on the power of a brand like Chic-Fil-A, the challenge of finding great employees, and why having great pizza doesn't always matter. More

Jeff Varasano on Baking, Branding, and the Business of Pizza (Part 1)

Slice Lance Roberts 18 comments

Jeff Varasano's pizza recipe went viral in the mid-2000's, and he opened up his own shop in Atlanta a few years later to critical acclaim. Then he went quiet...and we decided to find out why. Varasano had a very candid chat with us about his victories, his setbacks, his big plans coming down the pipe, and his newest location: the airport in Atlanta. If you ever wanted to open a pizzeria (or any a business), this is must-read stuff. More

The 'Influential' Burger (That Influences You to Order Chili Dogs Instead) at The Varsity in Atlanta

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 32 comments

Two chalky-brown industrial patties wedged between a flattened bun that hadn't even been fully split, with cheese that's not really melting so much as drooping with sadness at being exiled to this travesty of burgerdom. How is this "influential"? More

Expand Your Vocabulary and Get a Superb Burger at Ink & Elm in Atlanta

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 15 comments

Ink & Elm is pretty up front about wanting to be both "casual" and "comfort-driven," yet "refined" and a "destination." That can be a tough twofer to pull off under one roof. So it's not surprising that Ink & Elm's signature burger has a little Jekyll-and-Hyde thing going on, too. More

Don Antonio Brings World-Class Pizza to Atlanta

Slice Todd Brock 11 comments

"Pizza is a social food. In this country, you call a friend and say, 'Let's go get a drink.' In Italy, we say, 'Let's get a pizza.'" Every single thing I ate at Don Antonio by Starita was well worth sharing with someone you care about. MY favorite pizza in Atlanta? I think I just found it. More

Neighborhood Pies With NY Flair at LaBella's Pizzeria in Atlanta

Slice Todd Brock 7 comments

There's a time and a place for the pizza-as-artform-with-a-capital-A gourmet pizza shrines out there... but sometimes you just want to chill on your couch with a sloppy, gooey, greasy, holy-crap-this-is-why-I-fell-in-love-with-pizza-when-I-was-7 kind of pie. And LaBella's does that better than most. More

Creative Double Burgers and (Mostly) Solid Sides at Stax Burger Bar in Atlanta

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 5 comments

I enjoyed the food at Stax Burger Bar very much, but there's a residual odor that permeates this restaurant to the point that I can't just ignore it. My next visit will be in warmer weather so my nose can seek refuge on the sizable outdoor patio. More

Work-in-Progress Pies (and Everything Else) at Slice & Pint in Atlanta

Slice Todd Brock 1 comment

Don't get me wrong; I like a little kick, but this was a steel-toed boot being jammed straight up my taste buds. When I can still residually taste a pizza six hours and three tooth-brushings later, it's "too much."Suffice it to say, Slice & Pint is still—almost four months in—definitely a work in progress.

Where There's Smoke, There's Lots of Good Stuff at Stillhouse in Atlanta

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 8 comments

While a quick glance may have you thinking that Stillhouse is a flash-in-the-pan gimmick destined to shut down once the next big thing comes along, there's actually quite a lot to like, for burger lovers and hooch heads alike. More

'50s-Style Fast Food Burgers Still Going Strong at Zesto in Atlanta

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 4 comments

Unless you're a diehard Big Mac fanatic, Zesto's Big Mac-like Chubby Decker would probably win a blind taste-test because it was cooked for you instead of just assembled. Otherwise, the food doesn't always live up to the legend; most who've grown up with Zesto give it something of a pass based on sheer nostalgia. More

Ask the Pastry Chef: What to Eat at Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, GA

Sweets Erin Jackson 1 comment

If you're passing through Savannah, a pit-stop into Back in the Day Bakery is a must. Restraint isn't rewarded here. Walk out with something reasonable, like a single brownie or a few cookies, and you'll kick yourself for not loading up with a large variety of sweets. Read on for owner Cheryl and Griffith Day's top 5 picks. More
