Alpharetta/Roswell area - Good eats with a lively bar scene

Leave yourself plenty of time for parking if your not in the close lots and need to take a bus

Any recommendation breakfast between airport and le meridisn hotel

Silver skillet for sure. Get the banana pudding. Baccanalia is good for Atlanta but you have much better in NYC region.I'd try jct or empire state south

Long Layover + Braves Game

Ps. No matter whee you buy seats,ie sit,sit on the left outfield for batting practice. Alot of balls go there after bp go to your seat.the bullpen is a bbq

Long Layover + Braves Game

The bull pen is like 100ft from park. Its a decent bjs place and has great vibe. Batting practice usually starts 90 minutes before game it'd a must see. Check braves site to confirm times.do get to bullpen like 215 minutes before game. It has parking if you eat thereof you buy dugout level seats they have food service at your seat so you won't miss anything sit on first base side to avoid the sun it can be brutal go for the extra bucks for dugout. Its worth it.we use stubhub..com

Soft shell crabs?

Luv soft shells. They only stay really soft for 48 hrs max. So I only eat them at the beach. Otherwise they are either semi soft or frozen yuck!!

Old Southern Food

The silver skillet on
14th has outstanding breakfast and lunch. Get their banana cream pie. The varsity is an old study southern fast food place. Use the car hop service for the full experience. Fried pies and chili dogs are great

College visit with teens

Im a native Nyer and still have ties back there that advise me on where to eat--a friend owns the COPA,granted not known for their food,but he knows all the great localspots.We visit every year and dont go to the latest and greatest ever--we make reservations like 2 weeks out at most and get great food every time. One of my favs is Morrells right across the street from Rockefller center--- incredible lunch menu and eat outside.And the best Italian is in the Bronx,right across from Fordham University.I

College visit with teens

Yes thanks for feedback..we lived in Palo Alto for couple years--food in SF is hard to compare with almost any other city,expcept NY as far as quantity and quality of food spots.Atlanta is a fairly "young" city and doenst have the embedded food culture of cities that have been around .Weve been here since 85 and its vastly better here since then, but still not a great food city,IMHO. We do have a few that compare,but they are not cheap,and werent on your list

BBQ tour

we lived in St Louis and visited KC---they have decent BBQ. Had to visit Texas often on business and my memory is their mainstay was beef BBQ...But the BBQ in Lexington NC is special, they have 2 different sauces NC and SC,one more tangy than the other --Lexingon is just South of Winston Salem Agree dont overreach on yiur drive--on road trips i limit out at 300miles a day,and try to stay 2 nights in an area, making daytrips if necessary.Maybe Memphis,St Louis and KC would work

BBQ tour

id go to tripadviser.com--they have a section on road trips Ive lived in 12 different states and to me the best were Memphis and Lexington NC,the home of BBQ.Now if your a texasBBQ fan its a whole different deal BBQ here in Atl is just OK to me

Review of Common Quarter

great review thanks i live in dunwoody and its hard to get there fromhere--is it crowded on weekends-- ihave back issues,do they have booths thanks

Emidios

went there last night for 1st timePortugese place.Got there at 630,not very crowded.Server,maria, came right over and everything sounded great--we went with 2 specials,the chicken soup and a marinated pork chunk dish.Well the soup was excellent--but the pork dish with clams was bad.We had asked to put my wifes clams on the side since she hates clams--thats didnt happen.The pork was not trimmed and was very grissly/tough---just a bad cut of meat.Half the meals here are pork based,so assume they all have the same cut. When i looked at Urbanspoon before goingIi saw may of the reviews had little history reviewing,all reviews were very good and excelent,figure must be stuffing the reviews with friends
Then when we wanted to leave it had gotten very crowded and it took 30 minutes and 3 requests to diffreent folks to get a bill--we never saw maria again,iand i think shes an owner--we wont be back
