23. Victory Sandwich Bar


Victory burst onto the scene in 2011 as a scrappy little sandwich spot with excellent sliders, an instant-hit ping-pong table, and a wicked sense of humor. Then there was the slushie machine; it didn’t take long before Ian Jones and Caleb Wheelus’ boozy frozen whiskey and Coke exploded in popularity, becoming an iconic Atlanta drink. The original location was razed in 2013 for a new development, but their Bernina Avenue digs (there’s also a Decatur outpost) boast ample patio space, high-stakes table tennis, and grade-A people-watching, thanks to its perch near the BeltLine.
