I've been a few new places since I last wrote in. My favorite is Harry's Pig Shop at 2425 Jefferson Road (Homewood Village Shopping Center) here in Athens. Right now, the special running is this AMAZING ham-and-bean soup that isn't too salty. Yum!
The general bill of fare is barbecue. You can choose from pork, hen, brisket, or tofu. The place also does ribs well, and has a rib special on Tuesdays. The pork is so well done that it doesn't require any sauce, although there are six to choose from (all homemade). They make their own salad dressings, too. And they have good vegetables (which occasionally vary) and barbecue hash.
I'll be back as soon as I have time to post about some places in the Atlanta area that I've uncovered. BTW, I'm doing okay down here in 30601-land.
