Gus’ Goes Crazy!

Gus’ Fried Chicken was built from the idea of uniting communities with a special fried chicken recipe. Who doesn’t love fried chicken with a secret spice? Let’s get into it:

  • Gus; is located in downtown Atlanta, but my guy has locations all over the country! I appreciated the down to earth menu. It was one that left you with simple options, but you knew they would all be fire. You can find things like fried pickles, potato salad, mac and cheese. It’s like taking young uncle’s cookout and turning it into profit! I had to order their wings with baked beans and seasoned fries.
  • The sides will be first on the chopping block. The baked beans were spot on what I was thinking. They were sweet but not too sweet. They had the onions and peppers mixed in for a nice bite. The fries are classic. Good crispiness like you’re at a ballpark then finished with seasoned salt and other flavors. However, these wings… I need to run it back! They were juicy, off the bone, and spicy at the same damn time. I was chowing through the chicken so fast and effortlessly that I forgot to touch my drink. If you dare see me eating this and ask me for a bite, I will just stare at you like…

Phew Pizza is Phire!

Phew Pies is an up and coming pizza joint in Atlanta. Phew Pies is easily the most creative pizza in the city right, and I am not talking about just presentation. Let’s get into it:

  • I discovered Phew Pies on Instagram (@PhewPies), and I was left in awe when I saw his different pizza creations. With him being located in West Atlanta, he decided to curate some pies that truly embody the culture. If you grew up here, then you know that lemon pepper wings were always at the function. However, only the real city folks know about lemon pepper wet. Imagine that on a pizza for a second.. Magical.
  • PhewPies has original favorites such as cheese, pepperoni, and veggie pies. His specialties are the show stopper though with hot lemon pepper, oxtail, and po boy pies. I had to dive into the hot lemon pepper pie head first! No napkins in sight, just vibes. I loved the crust of the pie first off. That set the record straight that this was legit. The flavor was immaculate though. I was hot sauce on the pallet then lemon pepper sauce followed by gooey cheese. great combination that also included chicken bits in the mix. The pizza comes with 2 wings on top for when you want to step away from pizza and nibble on something else. I shared a slice with some friends, and we all ended up dancing like..

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..

Tom, Dick, and Hanks is the Place

Tom, Dick, and Hanks is also known as Happy Hour Hanks for their fantastic deals and drinks. Goodie Mob helped inspire the name, and the culture inspired his flavorful style of cooking. Let’s get into it:

  • Tom, Dick, and Hanks is an experience, because it was started after Hank was promoting nightclubs and exposed to short order cooking. Could you imagine you leaving the club at 2am while off a few shots, and your friend is like “hey.. I have some dry rub wings and a fried fish sandwich for you”. You would probably drunk cry, because someone cares about you. This restaurant is located near downtown, so the rooftop patio is a perfect vibe for food and drinks. You will find menu items such as BBQ chips, brisket sandwich, crab legs, and more. Either way, you’ll leave this place a little messy from barbecue sauce or crab leg juices on you LOL.
  • I treated myself to the dry rub wings and BBQ chips with chicken. I must admit.. I had no clue what these BBQ chips were going to look like when they arrived. I expected some type of nachos, but these were insane! A pound of juicy pulled chicken layered on top of queso dip, jalapeños, and housemade BBQ chips. It had an abundance of flavor. It was like every bite a new component stood out as the favorite. I need to run these backs and explore other proteins, because this was good! Also, I ordered the dry rub wings (with ranch of course). They were smart for not saying what’s in the house rub, because it was exquisite and yummy. I bodied those wings before I could process them. When I noticed they were only $5 for happy hour, I looked at the waitress like..

Old Lady Gang! Turn up

Old Lady Gang is Kandi Burress’ baby in Atlanta. She gives credit to her old ladies who whipped up some of the best food as she grew up! I had to give it a shot, so let’s get into it:

  • Old Lady Gang is more than a restaurant, it is an experience which I believe Kandi was looking for. You are going to find groovy music, modern seating, and a busy environment. When I went, I think someone was shooting a movie outside. I was mad confused, but it fit the aesthetic perfectly. Their menu presents down south classics with a twist. You will find fried then grilled wings, deep fried deviled eggs, shrimp and grits w/ vodka cream sauce, and more! I felt the itis already creeping up on me before I even ordered.
  • I ordered the OLG fried then grilled wings and a cajun shrimp po’ boy, because who doesn’t love po’ boys. I didn’t even have take a bite before my mouth started salivating. the wings were heavenly. They really shook the game up with that fried then grilled method, because the wings were perfectly crunchy and juicy. The sauce was for sure made from grandma’s recipe, because I did’t have a clue what was in it yet it was delicious! The po’boy was exactly what I needed. The shrimp had great spice and flavor throughout, and the sauce was damn near better than being hugged. The shrimp and sauce combo still sits on my mind till this day. I wonder if i’ll ever have a better combo than that…

Trederick’s is Tremendous!

Trederick’s Seafood is known for preparing their fresh seafood daily and packing it with flavor. Who doesn’t want fresh seafood and great flavor? Let’s get into it:

  • I stopped in Trederick’s in search for some seafood since I was tired of my normal meals during the week. However, I came to discover their variety of menu items that all screamed “try me”. Per usual, I stopped by when I was already hungry and ready to eat. I’m scanning the menu to see items such as Trederick’s seafood bucket, shrimp & grits, lemon pepper wings, and more. Have y’all ever asked the worker “which would you get?” LOL that was me in there trying to decide, but I came to the conclusion that I need something fresh and something fried.
  • I ordered the seafood bucket which includes crab legs, shrimp, corn, and potatoes. My hungry ass also ordered teriyaki wings and fries. Let’s just say this seafood bucket was nothing to play with. They seasoned everything like their job was on the line! Every bite gave me life. The potatoes were broiled to perfection. The corn was marinating in the broil juices, so that was tasty. That seafood though was everything they talked it up to be! It was all super fresh and always tastes better dipped in butter. You guessed it, the wings were also bomb too. The teriyaki was not overwhelming, and the skin was not too tough. I will for sure be back. You will see me with a chicken wing in one hand and a crab leg in the other as I am dancing like..
