Atlanta, Eastward Ho: to Sunday Supper Every Day


A road trip from Atlanta to the east, from pot likker, BBQ and biscuits to fried green tomatoes at the ultimate buffet in the town of Social Circle

Silver Skillet
Mary Mac's Tea Room
Harold's Barbecue
Mamie's Biscuits
Jim Stalvey's Restaurant
Blue Willow Inn
Silver Skillet - Atlanta , GA
Downhome food created by masters in humble surroundings. The dining room is a blast from the past: faded yellow walls, green-and-orange pumpkin-colored upholstered booths with boomerang-pattern Formica tables. Skillet-cooked ham is astonishing, packing the salty powerhouse tang of long-cured pig meat. And it comes with a dish of marvelous dark red-eye gravy. This is a true-blue diner.
Mary Mac's Tea Room - Atlanta , GA
Mary Mac’s Tea Room inspires superlatives. An old-fashioned urban lunch room in the heart of Atlanta, it offers a broad menu of dishes that exemplify Dixie cooking at its best. You can start your meal with a bowl of pot likker – sided by a cornbread muffin. Entrees include such classics as baked chicken with cornbread dressing, pork barbecue with Brunswick stew, and country-fried steak with gravy.
Harold's Barbecue - Atlanta , GA
One of the South’s grand old smoke pits, Harold's has built its reputation on velvet-soft sliced pork, racks of meaty ribs, and bowls of old-fashioned Brunswick stew. Sliced pork is velvet-soft and unbelievably tender; pork ribs come as a magnificent rack – ultra-thick, heavily glazed with beguiling sauce, their crusty-lush meat pulling off the bone in messy strips.
Mamie's Biscuits - Conyers , GA
The biscuits you eat at Mamie’s are always warm and fresh, and it is possible that you may arrive at a moment in time when the ones you are about to receive are still baking. Mamie’s has a whole menu of great things to put inside. Our choice for a biscuit sandwich is country ham – a slice or two of ultra-flavorful, super-salty pink meat with just enough oily smack to imprint the fleecy soft insides.
Jim Stalvey's Restaurant - Covington , GA
Have it your way: T-bone, rib-eye, strip, or filet, in sizes that range from a filets mignon of six or eight ounces to a massive sirloin for two that arrives on a sizzling platter. On the side you can have a baked potato with butter and sour cream, French fries, or superb crunchy battered onion rings that virtually melt on the tongue with a light ribbon of sweet onion inside.
Blue Willow Inn - Social Circle , GA
A meal at the Blue Willow Inn is an event. A big, big event. Sunday supper to the max, seven days a week. Help yourself from an endless buffet that includes fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, dozens of vegetables, biscuits, cornbread, and countless desserts.
