What are the best and worst restaurants for outdoor dining?

Oscar: Best is Little Five Points Pizza. It’s a melting pot of variety and culture ethnicity. There could be a guy sleeping inside a cardboard box 10 feet from you and a guy right next to him with a mohawk. Then you have Taco Mac in Virginia-Highland. Those people in the Highlands, let’s just say there’s not as much variety, and I hate all the televisions. It belongs in Marietta.

Rommel: Neighbors. The Highlands is always hopping. It has heavy foot traffic for Atlanta. They’re like the yuppies in New York, like the kids I went to school with. Bad outdoors is anywhere on Broad Street by Georgia State, like Michaels Deli. The food is good, but sitting out there is not. Random people start asking you for stuff and talk to you while you’re eating. They’re really abrasive.

Jena: Wahoo in Decatur. It’s like a magical fairyland. They have little tea lights everywhere, and the food is really good. It’s like a little oasis. The worst are all those restaurants on Ponce. There’s nothing to block the sun. There’s bugs and heat and all you can hear are traffic sounds. I love Fellini’s, but the one on Ponce is terrible. La Fonda is even worse because at least Fellini’s has the fountain.
