To be honest, I have been working on this one for a while. I have two favorites, so, that was making it tough. Fox Bros. BBQ and Community Q are my favorites. and
Fox Bros. has the Totinator – Tatertots covered in Brisket chili and smothered in cheese. They have awesome wings too.They also have fried ribs, yep, how wonderful….
Then I love Community Q’s BarBQue too. Their ribs are great and I love their brisket. The BEST thing they have is the Mac n Cheese…It’s this longer thicker rigatoni pasta with so much cheese gooeyness. It will bring tears to your eyes.
But then I had my eye on The Greater Good BBQ in Tucker. Their ribs are amazing. I order them dry, because I want to taste the smoke, then if I want to sauce them I can pick the amount and flavor. I didn’t try their mac n cheese. But their greens are the best I have had in town.Their onion rings were awesome also…They were light but held together to the bite.
The recap is this, I have to pick in order of the best ribs, #1 – Fox Brothers, #2 – The Greater Good, #3 – Community Q.
(I did try DBA BBQ today and their ribs are a little dry, but, they have the best fried pickles I have ever had, with two pieces of fried bacon on top OMG)
I read on Thrillist the best chicken wings in Atlanta were at Sobban. So I went and tried them and they are excellent. They are big wonderful tasty bites of joy! But I decided to try a few other places, so, I went to the Rusty Nail next. These were very good, just different, the kind you expect when you order wings. (side note, I had the Gumbo to start, that was out of this world GREAT).
The Quest continues, on to Downwind Restaurant at Peachtree DeKalb Airport. I usually get the cheeseburger here, it is just that good, one of the best in the city IMHO. These were so crispy and then juicy and I would order them again. It didn’t hurt that it was a beautiful day.My neighbors told me of a place I need to try and I love Hooters, wings that is! Let me know if you have a favorite. I would love some new ideas!
It’s back, Quest for the Best – Fajitas. I took a brief break from the Fajita Road for a few weeks and I came back strong, I thought I had a great contender. Red Pepper Tacqueria is a great Mexican restaurant near me with at least one other restaurant. All of the tacos I have had there in the past have been great! So, it was time to test their fajitas. The first fajita was excellent. They had a good amount of flavor in the chicken itself, then they used Zucchini and Yellow Squash along with peppers and onions (I personally would have liked a garlic flavor in there too). The guacamole was excellent! But, as I have stated in previous blogs the problem is the cut the chicken before it could rest and all of the juices run out and the flavor goes with it. So, fajita number two was disappointing. It was sad because it could be great and the rest of their food is very good, to great.
I started with the Tortilla Soup. It was a huge cup of deliciousness. Lot’s of veggies in there with strips of chicken and a full lovely broth.
So, the quest continues, more later!
Eduardo’s Mexican Grill is off of LaVista Road behind the Red Lobster in Tucker. (Near Northlake Mall)
Cheese dip good, not a huge fan of the salsa. I am not sure if it was an off day or if I just don’t care for it. I have been here before and I don’t remember the salsa not being good but hey I will go back and let you know. Now, onto fajitas, Plenty of onions and green peppers, the chicken is well seasoned, but you know and can see, the chicken has been grilled and then cut, so, a little dry. It would have been really good it had a great flavor base. It is a cute family business that I will enjoy going back to try some other things. I wonder if family businesses or chains for that matter want to listen to criticism or input, what do you think?
