    The Earl Dog may be the best drunk food in town. A big, fluffy bun, a 100-percent Angus dog with all the snap and salt you crave. Get it with the works. Read more

    Try Cayrum, its a dark rum aged 3 years and then infused with all natural ginger and honey. Its great as a chilled shot, on the rocks, ginger ale/beer, juices or Red Bull. Theres nothing like it!
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    It’s shocking how much soggy, crumbly veggie burgers pale in comparison to the meatless black bean burger. A bite through the crust somehow yields a robust, earthy, almost-meaty experience. Read more

    Had a great time there chillin after all the 4th of July hooplah. The bartender was very welcoming and the drinks were amazing. I only ordered vodka soda but the ratio was just right.

    The food here runs from basic to surprisingly interesting to a bit cute. That means Pabst Blue Ribbon-battered gator fingers and boiled peanuts served alongside a rib eye steak and a salmon B.L.T. Read more

    Awesome venue for music. The BBQ pork sandwich and thin cut fries are great together. Great bar for the adult crowd if you don't mind the heavy smoking - not kid friendly.

    Get a basket of Nugglets (mini corndogs) and lots of cheap beer. Once said cheap beer has been consumed, go into the back and dance like a moron to whatever band is playing!

    For carnivores, The Earl Burger can't be beat - get it with a side of fried okra. If you're of the vegetarian persuasion, the black bean burger is divine.
