I'll be in town for business Monday Night (Feb 3rd) arriving at about 8pm at ATL and leaving on Thursday right after my meeting ends at 5pm.
I'm staying at the Marriot in Perimeter Center.
I have all day meetings, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with breakfast and lunch at the hotel, so it looks like I have two nights to work with.
Walking Distance or a Reasonable public transportation ride preferred, however, I could possibly rent a car for one of the nights.
I'd prefer the hometown sort of vibe, like the diners drive in's and dives sort of places, but if there is something that is absolutely not to be missed, I would definitely consider it.
So far on my ideas:
Gladys Knight and Ron Winan's Chicken and Waffles
Vortex Bar and Grill
I based these ideas on Man vs Food, although I know that these might not always be the best.
Could you please point me in the right direction?
PS: I also noticed there is what seems like a fair amount of Greek gyro competition going on. Being from Jersey where there's a Greek owned diner every few miles, is this something to consider?
