Visiting a relative in the hospital in Atlanta, we were looking for a place to grab an early lunch. It's tucked away in a residential area on a quiet street alongside several other interesting looking restaurants. The interior decor is rustic and still retains its charm from yesteryear. It's not a very big place, but big enough that it doesn't... More

Atlanta seems to have quite a few of these types of places - local, low-key joints with amazing food - folk art might just be the best of them all. Being from NY, chicken and waffles are usually separate conversations and meals - down south it's a marriage made in heaven. Hash browns with pimento cheese are simply scrumptious. Staff... More

This is one of my favorite brunch spots in Atlanta. If you get there between 9 and 10 on a weekend you shouldn't have a long wait. The eggs, pancakes and biscuits and delicious!!

Don't blink or you would miss it. Nestled in a little storefront row is one of the best breakfasts ever!!!! Went on a Saturday for brunch and was greeted with complementary valet parking and about 20 minute wait but we probably would have waited double! The food and atmosphere were fabulous. The grits were on point along with the Folk... More

Hands down some of the best chicken and waffles I've ever had. The sweet potato and whiskey peach compote really set it off. Great atmosphere and the wait wasn't terrible even though they were really busy. Very efficient.

All the food is good from what I've seen. They do breakfast and burgers mostly but a couple other random things. Super busy on the weekend so expect a 20min-1hr wait depending on what time you go.

I live in Georgia and just had to visit this dive in Atlanta after seeing this on Dinners Drive-ins and dives. The food was awesome! I ordered the triple D meatball sandwich with hand-cut french fries and wasn't disappointed The burgers were grilled and then smothered in marinara sauce and cheese and this tasted just like a good ole meatball...
