Even if Atlanta’s night owls weren’t trying to get around the city’s 2 a.m. bar curfew, SOUTHERN COMFORT RESTAURANT & LOUNGE, a red-blooded honky-tonk in the extreme southwest corner of DeKalb County just off Moreland Avenue, would be worth the drive. It’s a true roadhouse, laid out with long tables like a bingo hall and a stage for live bands and Bocephus-worthy karaoke. Near the front door hangs a photo gallery of country-music stars who’ve played there in bygone years. In the back of the expansive build-ing is a poolroom, a selection of video slot machines, and a booth where those lucky winners can ex-change tokens for such trucker-riffic prizes as air fresheners and nut-hugger briefs. Beer is cheap, cold and domestic. The house cocktail is a Jack and Coke. The menu lists steak, but your best bet is anything fried. Need we say more?
