The evolution of Atlanta from small town to gay-friendly megalopolis is here for all to experience. Located behind an Eisenhower-era motel, this large and still very popular establishment has a fiercely loyal clientele. Everyone has a favorite dish. For some it's the fried chicken; for others, the oyster stew, salmon croquettes with egg sauce, or tomato aspic. Crusty servers take the orders, the decor is pure time-warp comfort, and the yeast rolls can't be beat. (No credit cards; closed during lunch on weekdays)
