Dining in the Vinings/Cumberland Area

We will be staying at the Courtyard Marriott Vinings this Friday. Does anyone have any recommendations for "local favorite" places to eat with our family, which will include 4 children and a toddler...?

The Cumberland Mall area is pretty much a black hole of dining except for chain restaurants. Nearby, though, is Heirloom Market, which has amazing BBQ, but offers very little seating. You may have to plan on taking it to a park or back to your hotel if there aren't seats opening up when you arrive. Also, there's Peter Cheng's, which I think is the best Chinese in the city. The best parts of its menu are probably too adventurous for kids, but it does have a large "American" Chinese menu (think sesame chicken, sweet & sour, etc) as well. OK Cafe is not far, and is pretty good for diner type food. If you drive a little but to Smyrna, Muss & Turner's is great.

OK Cafe would be a fun place to take kids for the kitsch factor. Taqueria del Sol is fabulous, but lines stretch out the door and move slowly, so the little ones may get restless. La Paz is good for Mexican. Shane's Rib Shack gets high marks for BBQ.
