What to Eat in Atlanta

Atlanta may be quickly climbing the country's culinary ranks, but that doesn't mean it's left its traditional Southern roots behind. The Big Peach is known for hearty comfort foods like fried okra, fried chicken and sweet tea, but a growing immigrant population is broadening the playing field. For everything from Korean to Peruvian, head to Buckhead, where most of Atlanta's top dining spots are located. Also save time for one of Atlanta's up-and-coming foodie neighborhoods: West Midtown.

If you're looking for a more upscale meal, travelers recommend steakhouses like Bones, The Capital Grille and Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse and contemporary American establishments, such as Canoe and The Optimist. But if want to grab a more casual (and affordable) bite to eat, Fat Matt's Rib Shack, the Atlanta Breakfast Club and Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q are favorites, as are ethnic options like Aviva by Kameel and Desta Ethiopian Kitchen. Meanwhile, visitors suggest quenching your thirst at the Prohibition-style speak-easy Red Phone Booth.
