Some people don't like butterscotch. Those people are flawed to their core and should not be trusted. And they certainly have no business coming anywhere near this ice cream. It is butterscotch overload, and I mean that in the very best way possible.
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.
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.
There's a cheese pizza that's delicious in its simplicity, but others showcase some spectacular and cheffy toppings. Ron Eyester may be "The Angry Chef," but what he's doing at Timone's should make pizza fanatics quite happy.
This is like doing a shot of straight wing sauce and then chasing it with an otherwise-nondescript-but-still-too-blue-cheesy fast-food burger.
Dave & Buster's feels like Chuck E. Cheese's for adults: it's a sports bar on steroids with an arcade on steroids. Yes, they serve food, but if you're looking for high-scoring burger goodness, your enjoyment here may be more virtual than reality.
Cinnabon is jumping onto the sweet-meets-savory bandwagon by adding salted caramel onto a new limited-time-only treat. For those who haven't been to a mall food court in a while, the chain already features an item called the Center of the Roll. It's essentially the inner mass of a standard Cinnabon, cut into bite-sized pieces, served in a cup, to be eaten with a fork.*
S&J's Woodfired Pizza may not be the easiest pie shop to find in Atlanta (that's about to change...), but what they're pulling out of their eye-catching little red trailer makes it well worth the extra effort.
Order the Meatstick and you'll get a pretty excellent hidden gem of a burger that, while not perfect, certainly has the foundation to be included in any conversation about this city's great burgers.
Paizano's Italian Bistro may not serve destination pizza, but if I lived in the downtown Norcross area, I could do a lot worse for go-to NY-style, Neapolitan, and Sicilian pies.
Beerhounds can go nerd out over ABVs and IBUs all day long, but this little gem of a brewpub I hadn't even heard of is cranking out some excellent burgers that are among the best I've found recently.
A glass case of hand-cut steaks greeting you at the door, a tableside bucket of peanuts in the shell, the occasional yee-haw rising up from a far corner of the restaurant: what's not to love about Texas Roadhouse? Well, as it turns out, the burgers.
Lucky's didn't win any Best of Breed awards in my burger book, but they do some solid pub grub in a canine-friendly atmosphere that's fun for two- and four-legged friends alike.
Dunkin' Donuts is putting summer in the box with two seasonal flavors, offering Lemonade and Key Lime in donut form for a limited time. We gave them a try.
After product testing earlier this year, Wendy's Pretzel Bacon Cheeseburger reportedly scored higher than any other promotional hamburger in recent Wendy's history. How you feel about it will likely boil down to how you feel about Wendy's, period.
Who knew Woodstock, Georgia was a legit pizza destination town? The tiny hamlet is on the extreme edge of what can just barely be called the metro Atlanta area: a full thirty miles from Centennial Olympic Park and admittedly way off the beaten path for most Atlanta pizza fanatics. True, this northwestern 'burb is on serious Slice'rs' radar screens thanks to the world-class pies at Vingenzo's. But about 1,000 feet away, FireStone Wood Fired Pizza & Grill is doing the California-style pie thing with similarly stellar results
You may not consider Waffle House a burger place, but I submit that theirs is actually better and a much better bargain than what the clown, the king, and the pigtailed girl are handing out. Hot, steamy, melty, with real grease dripping off of it—this is fast food without everything that makes fast-food cringeworthy.
In a traditional cinnamon roll, the dough is basically just a delivery mechanism for the filling and icing. Sonic's inside-out Cinnasnacks seem to totally get that and deliver in kind. Goo lovers and frosting fans, rejoice.
You could argue that an exceptional burger was programmed into The General Muir's DNA from the very beginning. Both burgers here are so good that you'll find yourself scrabbling after all the bits and pieces of shrapnel. Just remember to add the poutine.
What's Italian for "sad?" At Cibo e Beve, I ordered a topping as unique as duck and paid 17 bucks for the privilege, but came away with an impression that was no more memorable than "a rich white pie that mainly tastes like smoke."
In just its third year, the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival has quickly blossomed into one of the premier events of its kind in the South. Culinary talent from 12 states handed out samples of everything imaginable... and a few noshes like nothing even we'd ever dreamed of before.
I'm not sure six strips of bacon versus two really warrants a Superman comparison, but there's nothing not to like here. Except for the silly name they gave to the invented piece of porcine architecture that graces this movie tie-in burger.
I know. It's a burger on a waffle. Surprisingly simple in its construction. But Dad's Waffle is superb in its execution. I didn't expect to be blown away by burgers at a brunch place, but Buttermilk Kitchen's did just that.
Cucina Asellina should be killing it in Atlanta. But sadly, their much-ballyhooed pizzas left my palate underwhelmed, and my wallet overextended.
The our-burgers-are-so-extreme-that-we-have-to-serve-them-with-a-steak-knife-plunged-through-the-center schtick is way overdone, but on my next visit to Wild Wing Cafe, there's a very good chance I'll do another burger.
