MAP: 5 restaurants that deserve your attention in College Park

Eating in College Park is an all-chill, no-frills experience. Nothing about this place is contrived. Rather, it’s a refreshing pocket of Atlanta, one filled with people who couldn’t care less about the tragically hip — and overpriced — Inman Quarter, or the glitz and glamour of Buckhead. Here, it is locals, and perhaps airport workers, just looking to fill up.

And you can fill up in College Park — be it over a plate of barbecue (Barbecue Kitchen), takeout from a crab shack (Crab Pot), a pint and loaded fries at a pub easily mistaken for a cottage (the Manchester Arms) or with daily specials and a menu board of sides at a diner (Lunch on Main Street).

Check out the five places to try in College Park on the map below, and read here for what dishes to try and what to expect when you visit.
