Illegal Food Now Serving In Virginia Highland


*Note: Story updated to include another day of burger devouring awesomeness 

Oh, happy day! Illegal Food is finally serving hungry Atlantans. The former pop-up inside of Joystick Game Bar is taking over the former Bar Meatball space in Virginia Highland.  Fans will be happy to know that favorites including ‘The Hank’, ‘Fungus Among Us’, and ‘Nasty Nate’ will find permanent homes on the menu. They will be joined by made from scratch Southern fare made from locally sourced ingredients. Supplying partners include Brasstown Beef  and Gum Creek Farms.

As is befitting of a Southern restaurant (and an owner hailing from Kentucky), Illegal Food will place emphasis on it’s Bourbon program; available in both cocktails and sipping.

You can look forward to chowing down on ‘the Hank’ and sipping a Bourbon every Wednesday to Saturday from 6PM – 11PM.  Check out their menu here.
