    This Atlanta landmark has been serving jerk, BBQ and lemon-pepper since, along with a myriad of side items, since 1993. On "Fish Fridays" jerk talapia takes over the menu.

    Been coming here for 20 years. Food is still as good as it ever was. Cheese filled tortellini is my favorite pasta. Try the creamy marinara. Beat jerk chicken in town... No lie.

    Back in the day, I enjoyed the vegetarian lasagna. It's not on the menu anymore but I did enjoy cheese tortellini with mushrooms and peppers today

    Eats has a cafeteria-style look right down to the red plastic trays. The turkey lasagna and jerk chicken are a hit. Beans, rice, sweet potatoes, and corn bread are a few of the many side dishes. Read more

    How has no one else praised the turkey lasagna??? Big portion of delicious lasagna, salad and garlic bread for only $7.50? I get it every time.

    Lemon pepper chicken was amazing! Along with all The sides! Mac and cheese black eyed peas and broccoli casserole!

    If you come right at closing and plan to dine in, consider choosing a booth so the staff can start stacking chairs on top of the tables. They'll never rush you in any event.

    Not your typical meat and three. This place has more than soul and offers all of there veggies in true Vegan form. Rumor has it that the Jerk Chicken is their specialty.

    Crave from the Grave: First time visitors should try the jerk chicken which is what they are most known for. To mix things up folks should give the delicious turkey lasagna a try.

    The veggie plate is one of the best deals in the city. Come with an appetite and leave in a delicious coma.

    For fast food that tastes like it took time to prepare. Jerk chicken, pasta and soul veggies for an affordable price.

    The jerk chicken is awesome! Black beans and rice are often a bit dry for me. All the pasta dishes are excellent.
