I have some family coming into town in march and I'm wanting to take them to a local restaraunt in the area. We live in Powder Springs, so Kennesaw and Marietta are reasonable alternatives to going downtown. The problem is I'm wanting to bring them to something on found in atlanta (or the metro area) and I want it to be something they can talk about when they go home. An example of the place I'm looking for is Nuevo Laredo Cantina, which is juts a total hole int he wall Mexican restaurant that is more delicious than anyone ever expects. But I'm looking for something new to try. Other examples of the type of place I'm looking for is like El Carajo in Miami (the one int he back of the convenience store, not the one on 57th). Or If anyone has ever been to Birmingham and ate at The Garage, that type of place would be great too. Oh yeah, and I don't want to take them "Hole In the Wall" on peachtree! Basically the requirements are Locally owned, reasonbly priced ($30 per person is reasonable I think), good food, and something you'd definitely tell your friends about. And I guess should mention no BBQ places, I already know where all the best ones of those are.
