Time-tested Atlanta restaurants

What brings you back to the same restaurant again and again? For us, good bites and beverages matter, but the spirit and spunk of the place also play a role in turning us into repeat customers.

If you are in need of an eatery of distinction, consider these 14 spots in and around Atlanta. They range from some of the city’s most expensive food labs to joints where you can spend less than a ten-spot. They’ve all been around for a decade or longer. And if we had our druthers, we’ll get to enjoy them for years to come.
