We’re trading in the parking lots for our patios this year, but making tailgating just as fun at home with great eats. Here are some easy catering and takeout options around ATL to make any celebration you’re hosting a breeze!
For High-Quality Meats and Seafood
What did we do before Buckhead Butcher Shop opened its doors? Connor Boney opened up this new spot in Buckhead opened up in the midst of the pandemic to meet the demand of consumers looking to find high-quality meats and seafood that they’d normally order at top Atlanta restaurants. You can elevate your at home game day experience to a whole other level with some wagyu hot dogs, charcuterie, and prime whole brisket. Step into the sleek, black interiors and pick up not just the finest cuts of meats and seafood, but artisanal salts, rubs, sauces, and prepared sides. If you need some help, feel free to ask the staff anything–most have been plucked from the staff at Atlanta’s finest restaurants and can help beginners and experts alike.
For Lemon Pepper Wings
For lemon pepper perfection, Clay’s Sports Cafe in North Buckhead/Sandy Springs is unmatched. All of their wings are great and craveworthingly crispy, but they do lemon pepper esepcially well at great prices. Pick up a big order
For A Light Beer Option
Have you put on the “Quarantine 15?” Us too–but light and refreshing Blue Moon Light Sky can help you keep the summertime vibes going without packing on too many calories. Stock up at Tower Beer, Wine, & Spirits, with locations in Buckhead and Doraville.
For Great Burgers Without Firing Up The Grill
There’s no shortage of great burgers all over Atlanta, but we can’t help but find ourselves coming back time and time again to Grindhouse Burger for their super customizable and always delicious grub. Their catering menu makes it easy for you to enjoy at home with friends and family.
For the Perfect BBQ Spread
We love this hole-in-the-wall spot in Buckhead, and their grub tastes even better from the couch at home while watching your favorite team. Their Party Pack is a steal–it comes in at $100 and serves 12-15 folks, with 2 pounds of pulled pork, 2 pounds of pulled chicken, 4 quarts of sides, and a pack of slider buns.

6. Hoots Wings
For Breaded Wings
Anybody else out there got a passion for Hooters’ breaded wings? We’re psyched they’re working to bring their wings everywhere, with their new Hoots’ Wings restaurant that’s now open in Decatur, Peachtree Corners, and Reynoldstown. They’ve got tons of sauces and rubs–try the hot honey sauce and Parmesan Garlic for some good eats.
For Full-Flavored Whiskey Cocktails
Whistle Pig’s PiggyBack full flavored rye whiskey is a steal compared to their other products, coming in at under $50 for a 750 mL bottle and aged 6 years. The whiskey was made to complement your cocktails perfectly–visit their website for a delicious “Dave Collins” recipe!
