Ribs and Blues: A Classic Combination

In the film "Up in the Air," George Clooney's character recommended this Atlanta restaurant and suggested you "bring a bib." He wasn't off the mark in describing this classic eatery, located near the Atlanta Botanical Garden.

On any given day, you may find the parking lot full of cars of locals ready to pick bones clean of the tender pork. Open since 1990, seating and food are both first come first served.

The rib sandwich comes on classic white bread. You can substitute chicken if you don't eat pork. And don't miss out on the sides, including Brunswick stew, macaroni and cheese and collard greens. Check the band schedule before you go, as you might be in for a treat.
