Re: “Atlanta, Tortillas, and the path to burrito world domination

Also unmentioned are the punk rock deluxe burritos at Frijolero's, on Peachtree and 11th where Vanquish/Vision now stands. To go was to risk one's life....

Re: “Two Atlanta beer pioneers talk local beer history

I remember drinking Dogwood Winter out of oak casks at JK's Wild Wings (now Wing Cafe and Tap House) in Marrietta in the late 90s. I could not get enough.

Re: “Is there an Atlanta barbecue?

Good to see you writing for Creative Loafing, Todd. I realize that most people go to barbecue restaurants for the meats and sauces, which I get, but the mac and cheese at Community Q and some other cue' spots around town is as good as any restaurant in Atlanta. I always appreciate the barbecue restaurants that put some effort into the sides, muffins, and dessert (chocolate chip banana pudding at Swallow at the Hollow). It completes the whole experience.

Re: “Atlanta, Tortillas, and the path to burrito world domination

Moes blows. I have always loved Willy's, I didn't actually know they were local. I feel even better about supporting them now. El Myr has my heart in it's green burrito however.

There's still a Bell Street Burritos location inside the Sweet Auburn curb market.

Re: “A brief history of Atlanta farmers markets

Tremendous piece! The scope has never been touched in Atlanta (as far as I know) and the amount of incite and info jam-packed into this is nearly unfathomable.

Re: “A brief history of Atlanta farmers markets

@socialaight What? If you want non-local produce, go to a regular grocery store.

Re: “Atlanta, Tortillas, and the path to burrito world domination

Unmentioned is Tomatillos in EAV, another joint offering mission-style burritos in the vein of Tortillas.

Re: “Slow and low

Dont waste your money at Old Brick Pit. The day I want there, the staff were standing around not doing much of anything, could have bee because we were the only customers in the place. The BBQ tasted like it had been standing around just as long. It was very dry and did not have the "SMOKE" flavor this place seems to be known for. I dont mind the small choice of sides as that is not what I go to a BBQ place for anyways. I will not be making a return visit.

Re: “A look at Buford Highway Farmers Market, a multicultural shopping mecca

"...including a growing organics section..."

The section may be growing (almost as big as the Russian butter section now!) but I still never see anyone except in-town hipster tourists shopping organic.

Re: “Is there an Atlanta barbecue?

I've eaten at most of the places named in the article.

I think almost all barbecue is pretty good and almost none of it is great.

But that's kind of the whole idea behind smoking and adding tons of spices and/or flavor sauce to a slow-cooked piece of cheap meat, right?

Re: “Is there an Atlanta barbecue?

Alas, how soon we forget the BBQ of Harold's in Lakewood Hights. This iconic business was around when my parents were daiting in the early 40s. Then it became my BBQ place when I was dating in high school in the late 50s. Harold's is no longer around, as the family run business finally shut its doors a few years ago. But ask any ole timer who worked in the state offices downtown and they will tell you, the state employees visited often. Harold's had, in my and others opinion, the best Brunswick stew and cracklin cornbread of any others. I'm still searching for that stew in today's market.

Re: “A brief history of Atlanta farmers markets

Great story, its nice to see that vendors with the right community connections are allowed to sell throughout the city. For the record, there is no evidence to believe local foods are either healthier or any better for the environment. These local growers have hijacked any community efforts to promote healthy, sustainable eating. Can we start seeing the prices at these markets lowered by allowing non-local produce? The local thing is great for the local farmers but bad for consumers. Why not use these markets to get healthy food on the streets at an affordable price?

Re: “Atlanta, Tortillas, and the path to burrito world domination

Ugh -- what a painful reminder of the loss of Bell Street Burritos in the Old Fourth Ward. I still hold out hope that they'll find a way to return.

Re: “R.I.P., Lunacy Black Market

The wine prices doubled with in weeks of Paul & Cynthia departing. Let's face it , interacting with Paul was better then eating the food.
