50 Best Restaurants in AtlantaWe’d be a lesser town without this old-school institution, which has been the go-to for Atlantans seeking the comforts of smothered pork chops, oxtails, and, of course, the city’s best fried chicken since 1947. Six days a week, old-school politicos and R&B artists alike file in for lunch (the restaurant closes at 7 p.m.). Don’t forget the sides: collard greens, house corn muffins, sweet potato pie, and old-fashioned cobblers, all served with a smile.
