GBR Grille

GBR Grille sits in East point and emphasizes their quality of food rather than the overhead. Price point and satisfaction is their lane! That’s the lane I like to pull up in. Let’s get into it:

  • GBR Grille fits in as a fast casual dining place, but they cater to a variety of appetites. Have you ever been starving and can’t put your finger on what you want?? Tacos or burgers? Salad or Barbecue?? GBR Grille is the perfect place to have that mental breakdown! They have a beautiful range from spicy jerk burgers, blackened chicken tacos, shrimp grill mix, and many more. You literally win with whatever you impulse choice you make.
  • I settled on the shrimp mix bowl and spicy teriyaki wings w/ fries. I’ll start with the more simple dish aka spicy teriyaki wings. They saucy, plump, and spicy. I was struck in awe of the quality of the wings. The spicy teriyaki was a great balance of heat and tanginess! The fries were a nice compliment to the wings. We all HATE when the fries suck. The shrimp bowl was made up grilled shrimp, yellow rice, loads of veggies, and a sauce of your choice. It was magnificent. Of course, I loved the portions and the freshness of every vegetable. You know it’s good when your bite is just rice, grilled onions, and spinach, and that excites you. The flavor was on every bite. I will be back soon and the day after. I will tell those who ask exactly where to go..

Local Green is the Dream!

Local Green Atlanta is a fast casual restaurant whose mission is to redefine healthy, affordable eating. I wholeheartedly support putting more healthy options in areas that need them! Let’s get into it:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is dbd7c78c-7f3a-4643-baeb-ab7b8097a45c-1.jpg
  • Local Green is exactly what it sounds like plus more! Not only are their colors and signage green, but just about all of their food options have green in them. If you’re a superstitious person, i’m sure you will make the case that it is indeed your lucky day around all of that green. Their menu contains a diverse selection that includes a power kale salad, monsta shrimp burger, vegan Oh Boy burger, and more. No chickens here for your basic butt!
  • I ordered the Oh boy burger and Air fries. First off, this burger was monstrous. I got the “OH boy” feeling. This burger resembled no vegan burger i have had so far. It looked and was presented like a $24 burger from a steakhouse. That beauty was extremely juicy and topped with natural vegetables! The mock cheese gave me all of the feels of gooey real cheese. That burger was not backing down from me. I struggled to finish for real! The air fries were cajun seasoned and had a little heat. It was a great combination! If I had some wine, I might have passed out from joy…

Grass VBQ Joint Goes!!

Grass VBQ Joint is bringing vegan smoked meat to Atlanta. Chef Terry ensures that they use fresh, local ingredients to put together these vegan handheld bites! Let’s get into it:

  • Grass VBQ Joint is black owned and connected within a brewery which adds to their aesthetic! I went here knowing that I wanted something vegan and something that will remind me of a summer barbecue. Side note: Summertime by Will Smith is always my mood. At Grass VBQ Joint, you will see a variety of sandwiches on the menu such as the Clucker, Nashville Hot Chic’n, Smoked Brat, and many others. I felt like I was on Deal or no Deal, I was analyzing and debating between sandwiches hoping I chose right. I knew I couldn’t choose wrong though!
  • I picked the clucker as my lunch, and I was pleased when I saw it. The bun was glistening, sauce was gushing, and the smell was sensational when I opened the box. Before I dove right into it, I snapped my pic and sat their cheesing at how good this baby looked. First bite in, I was bombarded by the taste of this Bama BBQ sauce. It was amazing. I could taste the freshness and smokiness in the fake meat. Grass VBQ makes their fake meat in-house, and that eliminates all that thought of “what if it tastes too processed or fake?”. This was eliminated in my mind after taking bites in the sandwich. Also, the pickles and onions add that nice touch to enhance that freshness component. By bite #4, the sandwich was on its last leg! Even though I was about full, I looked at that last bite like..

Slutty Vegan? Yes!

Slutty Vegan is the home of Atlanta’s best vegan burger in my opinion (this could be a fact though!). Slutty Vegan was founded by a black queen by the name of Pinky Cole. Slutty food is  overindulgent, gooey, messy, and irresistible. Let’s get into it:

  • I finally can say that I have tried Slutty Vegan. Ever since they opened in 2018, there was been crowds of people waiting to get one of their burgers each day. Their menu is funky and creative! You will find options such as “One Night Stand”, “Hollywood Hooker”, and “Heaux Boy”. Some burgers feature avocado, jalepeños, or jerk plantains. They all sounded good to me as I was deciding what to order. No matter what I chose, at least I knew this meal would be vegan and slutty.
  • I ordered the One Night Stand and the Super Slut. First up, the bun.. They use Hawaiian buns, so that adds a layer of flavor. The One Night Stand is their classic burger topped with bacon, cheese, and caramelized onions. The vegan bacon was smokey and crispy! Most vegan bacon is chewy, and they gave us crispiness. That’s love. The slut sauce was amazing. I couldn’t tell you what it was made of. Nothing from this burger screamed vegan to me, but it was phenomenal. The melted cheese was messy yet so tasty. The grade I’m giving them is an A+. If this what it feels like to be a slutty vegan, I need more of that.

Smith Commons is Not Common.

Smith Commons is not your common Brunch place. They are open during the week only for dinner, but by the weekend they serving up bottomless mimosas. I had a great time visiting during DMV Black Restaurant Week. Let’s get into it:

  • Big windows, wooden tables, and eclectic music gave Smith Commons a unique vibe. They have tons of exposed brick and a huge chalkboard filled with designs. I wouldn’t be surprised if Becky with the good hair went viral taking a cool picture while there.
  • For starters, we decided to devour the salmon hash! I did not feel confident during the eye test, but this dish aced the taste test. The fresh salmon along with roasted peppers and onions paired so well. Also, the Smith Biscuits were fire. The biscuits covered in creamy grits, bacon, and sriracha sauce will definitely sit on my mind for days.
  • For my main course, I had the chicken and waffles. This was no ordinary chicken and waffles. The waffles were fluffy and topped with fruit. The chicken was roasted instead of fried, and it hit differently! I was in awe over the chicken falling right off the bone and filled with flavor. Pro tip: be a fat ass when you go out to eat, so you are not the only friend at the table with a kale salad.
