Burgers: Vortex

[/ QUOTE ]

So hit or miss, You could literlaly get the best burger of your life or the worst at this place on any trip(I am talking the Little5 Loc.)

[ QUOTE ]
Chili: Rocco's Pub

[/ QUOTE ]

I agree on this is the upper escelon, there is another place I can't think of the name now but I thought was better


[ QUOTE ]
Sushi: Soto & Taka

[/ QUOTE ]

Very very good, I like Rusans for value though.

[ QUOTE ]
Pizza: Terra Cotta, Fritti, Woodfire Grill & Bella's[/b]

[/ QUOTE ]

I worked for Bella's when they first opened for about 1.5 years, I think its the best pizza in Atlanta, maybe the whole southeast. I also worked for LaBella's on Sandy Plains which was a close second, they had the better garlic knots.

Other places I loved, Marietta Diner, Brewhouse(Bangers and Mash and a Brew size of Newcastle, simply devine.), Elmyr, Falafel Cafe, and Baby Tommy's(for the proscioutto sandwich only).

Never seen one! Willie's, that is.

And the Vortex referred to was the Midtown location, we have not been to the L5P location. Or, at least I have not.

So awesome that it's a "museum." Some of my friends used to live in the apartment complex right across the street.

I agree, $8.50 all you can eat lunches is about as good as you can get. Has anyone ever been to MF Sushibar down Ponce?

Houston's is just an overpriced Applebee's, IMO.

I wouldn't classify Buckhead Diner as an actual "diner".

I'd go Mary Mac's for best Southern. Greenwood's must be the only Southern restaurant ever that doesn't serve sweet tea.

Four pizza places and no Fellini's? Blasphemy. I also like Rocky Mountain.

Fellini's was the best when I got into town, by the time I was on my way out of there it wasn't as good anymore, even though I enjoyed the setting at the one on Ponce, the pizza degraded overall, not sure if they cahnged ingredients or cheeses, but its not what it was in my opinion.
