My girlfriend and I came here for lunch. We started off with the layered fried green tomtoes was accompanied by soft goat cheese, minced tomatoes, and topped with a sticky balsalmic glaze. I ordered the sweet potatoe tots and the burger of the month, breaded bison buffalo burger with buffalo sauce and blue cheese crumbles. Unaware that it was breaded, and not really thrilled with the breaded burger, I asked to send it back. Our server pleasantly had it replaced with the same dressed burger (w/o breading), which had the perfect amount of sauce and cheese. My girlfriend ordered the the turkey burger and crisp fries. The restaurant was fairly busy, but our food took a very long time to get to our tables (almost an hour). My sweet potatoe tots also seemed like they had been sitting out of the heat for a while, which made them somewhat soggy. Our server was extremely nice and the assisted general manager visited our table and later took my burger off my check, which I was not expecting. The restaurant is kid friendly, has a well stocked bar, can sit a large a small group and does offer WiFi. They offer gluten free, vegetarian, entrees, sandwiches, starters, salads, soups, and specially crafted milkshakes. menu items. Their burgers consist of bison, angus beef, ground chuck, chicken, fish, turkey, and vegetables.

My husband and I are new to Atlanta and we were looking for a good chinese restaraunt and found Lucky China. The atmosphere was terrific! It was clean, the decor was pretty and the lighting was perfect. The service was also stellar. Our waitress was at the table as often as you needed but didn't hover. Now for the food. The presentation was gorgeous, and the portions were generous and delicious! The value...also spectacular. The two of us ate for $36.00 not including tip. We had two appetizers, two meals and because Sundays and Wednesdays are $1 beer (domestic) and $1 Nigiri (Sushi) we also had 5 beers and one piece of Nigiri. It was a lovely meal and we feel no need to look for another chinese restaraunt. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal.
The space is small, but really cute. I quickly scanned the menu and ordered the Cup Sticky Rice along with the Dirty Bird and Shrimp Baos. The Dirty Bird Bao was served first. Party in my mouth! The bun melted in my mouth. The chicken was seasoned well. The pickled daikon and carrots went perfectly with the chicken. The Shrimp Bao made for a party after the Dirty Bird Bao party. And then the Cup Sticky Rice was the after after party...very flavorful. I brought a few of the baos home for The Hubs to try, but he wasn't a fan. Fortunately, that means this will be one of the few leftovers I can bring home without having to worry about him eating them behind my back.
Ok, as a graduate of GT I know I'm biased, but I love the Varsity for what it is. Decent food with a charm and character that is unique in Atlanta. Don't expect anything gourmet here but the chili dogs are decent, the fries and rings are appropriately greasy, the fried pies are a treat and the FOs (frozen orange - think of an orange frosty) are yummy. We used to come here and sit in the car and we enjoyed every minute of it. Now I stop by on my way to an event in the city and still enjoy the hustle and bustle on gameday, the "what'll ya haves" echoing throughout and the energy of this place. Its a definite must-visit for out of town guests.
Being new to Atlanta I've been told of how great the Varsity was , but when I tried them it wasn't what I thought it would be. Now don't get me wrong the hot dogs weren't bad , but from the talk of the town.... I thought they would be better. I had a slaw dog and a chili dog. The chili dog was a little over priced if you asked me . The team moved the line quickly, but I wouldn't say that they gave me Chick-fil-a type customer service ( best customer service at a fast food restaurant). I hear that back in the day it was better ,so try it for yourself and then you be the judge.
We recently were due for a relaxing night in and decided to order take out from Mont Restaurant. The menu was a little overwhelming at first, but that is because they have any possible Asian food you can think of. I finally settled on Teriyaki Chicken with fried rice & my husband ordered Bee Lo Mein. We both enjoyed our meal immensely. The delivery was quick & our order correct. The amount of food for the cost also exceeded our expectations, as we were both able to make two meals out of our order (me three!).
The Varsity has been around for a long time and is an iconic restaurant in Atlanta. The orange drink and orange frosty are both great classics. I like the hot dogs and fries myself to eat. They also have an ice cream bar with tasty ice cream. The service is exceptionally fast; they have perfected the art of moving people quickly through the line so you never wait more than 2 minutes even when crowded. The various rooms have televisions playing: some news, some sports, etc which is a nice touch.
The best place ever in Atlanta for the all Chinese food lovers. They have such a great menu with the awesome selections on it. The food is great. Egg rolls and steamed dumplings were delicious and very fresh. General Tao's chicken and The sweet and sour chicken were fantastic. The selection of the soups is very good. The staff is very friendly and kind. The environment is very comfortable. I had a great experience there highly recommend you to go there!!!
Blt is located in the W hotel and has great ambience. We popped in for brunch and were a bit disappointed overall. Its pretty pricy for brunch($9 for fries) and the dishes were just ok. The restaurant had one other table occupied and yey we waited more than 30 minutes for our entrée....which were Luke warm to cold. The waiter was also quite rude and even had the nerve to say that's just who he is. I prob won't return, definitely not worth the price.
