The Buckhead Diner is a true Atlanta institution. For decades, it has been the go-to spot for diners wanting to dive into some of the best comfort food around; anything from a Reuben to a perfectly cooked cheeseburger. The Diner has groomed such superstar chefs as Kevin Rathbun, and has become a superstar in itself. Serving up blue cheese chips, James Beard award winning desserts and a fried chicken that is the talk of the town; one step inside and you’ll know you’ve found your new home.
Head to The Diner on a Sunday. This is one of only two days that they serve their fried chicken. Crisp and not at all heavy and served with traditional sides (we’re partial to the mac ‘n cheese), it’s the perfect Southern Sunday Supper.
Blue Cheese Chips
Made famous in 1987, this fan favorite is usually the first thing someone will tell you ‘you MUST order!’. Homemade chips piled high with warm, melty Maytag blue cheese. Yes, they are as amazing as they sound.
