We came here on a Sunday night, my husband, two kids, and I. I reviewed the menu and comments on trip advisor before choosing, but was still a little disappointed. It’s more of a hip, trendy, bbq restaurant, than the modern, foodie place we were...More

Good food and beer. The cold night and drizzle outside added to the ambience. Lovely hosts. I had a BBQ Plate and Duck Fat Tater Tots (a must have) with HEFEWEISSBIER. Its a must go.

Athens came as the final stop of our dixieland vacation. So, after 15 days, we were tired to look for a restaurant every night, and were also running out of options. Unbelievably, I had not yet tried the green fried tomatoes, and just could not...More
