Looks like Cliff finally found a place to eat that meets his standards of gayness.
I'm really disappointed at Mr. Bostock's less than fair review of Lips Atlanta. It sounds as if he went into this with a bad attitude, focusing on anything negative he could think of.
Lips Atlanta is a very fun place to go with friends for an evening of drinks, dining and drag...all in a clean & smoke free environment. Not a smoke filled dirty bar but a place where you'd be proud to take your friends whether they're gay, straight or whatever. It's a great environment for the drag queens to have a steady job doing what they love to do in a beautiful, glitzy little palace. They do a fine job taking your drink orders and serving your dinner. My pork chop was delicious and the Mac & cheese was very tasty. It's not Ruth Chris so if you want that, go there. I do like the Wednesday & Thursday evenings better because there's only one seating so it's not as rushed and the drag performance is longer than on Friday & Saturday nights with. 2 performances. I'm looking forward to going to Sunday's gospel brunch.
If you want to have a great time in a space that Liberace would be proud of then make your reservations & go to Lips. Don't let Cliff's review bias you!
Were there sliders?
Straight people be havin' kids and goin' to church. You seen this, you heard about this? (adjusts tie)
RIP Hollywood HOTS...Backstreet...etc...
This town used to swing...and strut...now it shuffles. A 24 hr. moveable feast became a polite mixer.
Thanks Ray Lewis, lazy cops, and know-it-all killjoy liberal Democrat (?) power broker politicians.
WOW, Cliff writes an article promoting a $9 crappy steak at a gay bar and has the nerve to criticize Outback and Longhorn?
Cliff you make no sense.
Old ass thread, but I'll bite. I've eaten at many of Atlanta's most esteemed restaurants and I also put out a lot of good food in my own kitchen, so I know good from bad. Over the years Longhorn's has been a reliably good source for comfort food and gigantic portions whenever I find my way into one, almost always with my folks when I visit them in small town NW Georgia, to whom it is considered fine dining.
If you stick to the more popular entrees (steak, salmon, chicken dish, etc..) it's usually as good as similar items at quite a few respected Atlanta independents, though not necessarily much cheaper. It's not inventive or exciting cuisine, or described with rarefied flourish on a menu printed 2 hours ago, but it's usually highly satisfying for what it is. I typically enjoy reading your reviews Cliff, but this one definitely confirms your inveterate snobbery.
My wife & I go to the Sparks, NV Outback every Sunday before we got to gamble penny slots at Western Village.
We have been going like this for 10 yrs., We're on a first name basis with most of the staff and the proprietor. Everything we get is prepared to perfection or they'll change it. Mostly Filet, Rib-eye, Prime Rib with "Aussie Chips".
Great Vibe, Great food. We have been to some Outbacks out-of-town and haven't found some of them as good.
Even though it's a franchise, there can be quite a variation in food prep - staff - depending on the proprietor of the particular franchise..
Like the noodles?
Kind of like a ronin?
Thank you Wesley:
