The Bee is practically an Atlanta institution. Feast on their award-winning, savory fried chicken. Try the fresh-squeezed lemonade or the red velvet cake. The Bee is a bit of a dinosaur, unfortunately, one of the last of the old-school, true Southern restaurants. The decor isn’t much, but that’s ok – the food is the star of the show.

Another vintage restaurant (this one launched in 1927). Enjoy their fried chicken livers in the large dining room. Granted, the Colonnade runs a bit more towards Southern cooking as opposed to straight soul food, but all the staples are here in a comfortable, classic space. The chef isn’t afraid of innovating, either – you can oscassionally find kangaroo on the menu these days.

Some may say Paschal’s is past its prime, is overpriced and has slipped a bit lately, but we respect the history of the place – and the overall quality of the cooking. Martin Luther King Jr. and fellow civil rights pioneers ate here – numerous celebrities have followed in their footsteps. Of course, the fried chicken is the signature dish, though you can also find shrimp and grits, fried catfish and more. It’s a more upscale experience than some soul food joints. "
