    Best wings in Atlanta.
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    This neighborhood bar and restaurant is popular with college students, hipsters, and yes, locals. Above-average bar food and cozy patio make this a strong draw.

    The menu changed recently. It seems to have kept the best around (buffalo-jerk wings) and added a lot of different options for sliders, which you can mix & match. The only downside is no more tacos!

    We suggest a chilled shot!
    CAYRUMMarch 5, 2012
    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! Read more
