Never disappoints! Yes there always seems to be a wait but they move quickly. Hint- free sitting at the bar - grab stools and watch the chefs do their magic!!!

My wife and I consider this wonderful restaurant THE place to go on a moment's notice. OK Cafe is an amazing potpourri of varying styles, with lots of "southern" references mixed with pure funk. The restaurant seems to go on forever... because the owners kept adding on wherever the space allowed. But that's part of the fun... when you are... More

Had been a while but should never be forgotten. When it comes to always "spot on " food and service no one does it better. Always a great value and kudos to our server Dawn, and the ladies who were around her Saturday evening. Always good to see teamwork and professionalism!

My mom and I stopped here for lunch on our way to Tampa. There was a wait, but it only took us 7 minutes to get seated. Mom got the Tuna Salad Sandwich. There was the perfect amount of tuna in it and comes with lettuce and tomato. It came with a big serving of French fries. They were crispy... More

Just happened to come up on this restaurant by chance & really pleased we did!! The service was very good & the food even better. The Bacon & Cheese Burger was excellent, also the Chili & the Chicken Wings. Can also say try the Pecan Pie. Next time I'm in town will be back!!

In the South they are popular and we call them "greasy spoons", but there's nothing greasy about the OK Cafe. Excellent food and excellent service. The OK Cafe is a "silver spoon" and well worth the wait.

OK Cafe is on I-75 in North of downtown Atlanta. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is delicious and served piping hot. We had a 4 vegetable plate. It was very much enjoyed. Ice tea is perfect. If traveling is is a great treat on the road and easy to find. Enjoy.

Love this place. Everything is good and made the old fashioned way. This is my husband's go-to restaurant for lunch or dinner when I'm out of town.

This place was packed but we got seated so quickly. Loved the customer service, excellent! Our waitress was Richie, a doll! I had the turkey avocado sandwich and fries, so good! My hubby had mac n cheese and country fried steak -The Best in my opinion. The take out area is like a buffet. Huge variety to choose from.

We had 10 people in our party and we enjoyed our meal so much that I recommend it to anyone who is looking for home cooked food (vegetables, meatloaf, fresh cobbler)...you get the idea. One of our guest was from out of town so we stayed for quite a while and nobody asked for our table, asked us to wrap... More
