1. Big Pie in the Sky - 2090 Baker Rd NW, Ste A103, Kennesaw, GA 30144
Big Pie in the Sky is the type of pizza place where dreams really do come true. On the Travel Channel show Man vs. Food, host Adam Richman attempted to complete the Carnivore Challenge, which is taking on an 11-pound pizza with a partner within a certain time frame. Guests are allowed to take on this challenge themselves, but needless to say only few have tried, most have failed. Regardless, you will love the from-scratch dough and fresh ingredients.
2. The Red Eyed Mule - 1405 Church Street Ext NW, Marietta, GA 30060
Food Network’s Alton Brown has visited this traditional lunch spot, claiming that the Sloppy Slaw burger is his favorite burger in Atlanta. This small spot boasts some seriously huge flavors—so get ready to order everything on the menu, then take a nice long nap afterwards.
3. Heirloom Market BBQ - 2243 Akers Mill Rd SE, Atlanta, GA 30339
Heirloom Market was featured on three different food shows: Best Thing I Ever Ate, Bizarre Foods America, and Unique Eats. This Texas-style Korean BBQ joint serves up some seriously unique flavors, especially with their famed spicy pork sandwich. I guess the only thing left to figure out is whether or not this is the best thing you ever ate.
4. Sublime Doughnuts - 535 10th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318
Are you looking for a break from the savory of this road trip? Well let’s lighten your load with a little something sweet. Sublime Doughnuts is easy to miss if you’re not keeping an eye out, so keep your eyes peeled! This shop is filled with such delightfully delicious fritters and donuts, you’d be hard pressed to find sweets like this elsewhere.
5. Honey Pig - 3473 Old Norcross Rd #304, Duluth, GA 30096
You may have seen this Duluth hotspot on an episode of Unique Eats on the Cooking Channel, which is well deserved, because the dining experience at Honey Pig is some of the most unique eats out there. If you’ve never experienced cooking your own food the Korean BBQ way, then you’re absolutely in for a treat.
6. Matthews Cafeteria - 2299 Main St, Tucker, GA 30084
Matthews Cafeteria was featured on a Food Network episode of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives showcasing where the locals go.

There aren’t too many places left which feature meat-and-three deals, so get to Matthews while the gettin’ is good!
7. Jen’s & Friends - 34 Bull St, Savannah, GA 31401
Jen’s & Friends was featured on an episode of Drinking Made Easy, which is absolutely fitting considering there are more than 100 martini creations and 140 beers available. These martinis are truly something special, like the famed Rice Krispie Treat martini, or the Birthday Cake martini. Drinkable desserts served right.
8. Clary’s Cafe - 404 Abercorn St, Savannah, GA 31401
