Roy's Cheesesteaks

Tools

For those Smyrna-bound, the first thing you see when exiting I-285 at South Cobb Drive is a long impersonal stretch of gas stations, motels, and fast-food joints. If you're stopping to get refueled food-wise, it's worth veering just slightly off the main thoroughfare toward this tidy haven of brotherly love and Philly cheese steak goodness. The brainchild of Roy Brostrand, the South Jersey native who founded the Philly Connection in the early '80s. With juicy, flavorful meat and generous portions, this restaurant may be the only Atlanta eatery to get the cheesesteak right.
Ray's on the Creek

Tools

Killer decor, but don't let that stop you. The menu is small with straightforward entrees and funky appetizers. Blue cheese heaven. Well-trimmed steaks are cooked as asked, but stay away from the greasy rack of lamb; however, if you have a business client to impress, this steakhouse is the place to go.

On one of intown's hottest blocks is a sassy cross between Einstein's volcanic be-seen scene and some laid-back cruise bar with a dinerteria menu. The mostly male crowd (all ages and types) has learned that it's best to stick with the simplest grill items: tasty gourmet burgers with fries; black-bean chili served in a cup or over a dog; sauteed spinach; and iceberg lettuce salad with crumbled blue cheese. Service varies. Beers and wines are properly chilled.
Radial Cafe

Going out to breakfast should be relaxing, and this is one of the few places left in Atlanta where jockeying for a table isn't a professional sport. The space is cozy, but not cramped. It gets a little hectic on the weekends, but the waits aren't outrageous.

Stationed downtown in Rio Bravo's ex-location, Ray's in the City typically attracts business and convention types. Ray's has a substantial variety oceanic options ranging from horseradish-crusted grouper to oyster bar and sushi offerings. Ray's won't give your wallet a workout, though some of the dishes lack that taste bud-kicking zing. That being said the raw bar rocks and the service is spectacular.
Ria's Bluebird

Tools

Wildly popular breakfast spot (that serves lunch, too), offering perfectly potent coffee, fluffy biscuits, and both creative dishes and traditional staples. Lots of vegetarian options, too.
