You could go there for the great barbeque alone, but Anderson's also serves delicious veggie sides and something that might sound bizarre to a few: a pig ear sandwich. It's a tiny shack where you place your order through a window and wait for your meal, which could include fresh collards, macaroni & cheese, sweet potato soufflé and fruit cobbler. If you're in the mood for a meat feast, check out the King Platter where you get pork and beef ribs, plus chicken. Talk about a stuffing!!

The crowd, which includes college students from the nearby Atlanta University Center, flocks to the no-frills cafeteria for breakfast, lunch or dinner that might include baked chicken, ham hocks, squash, beets, sweet potato soufflé, turkey wings, Cornish hens or baked salmon. On Tuesdays, all meals are $5.99 and include a meat, two sides and a mini corn bread cake. Its a really busy place and no wonder the food is so so good... beware :)

Busy Bee Cafe

recommendation by dropboy

Since 1947, yes, 1947......the Busy Bee Cafe has been one of Atlanta's best soul food restaurants. Busy Bee is about as attractive as a soul food joint is going to be--which means recognizable signage, structured parking, even celebrity photographs and table service. With long waits at lunch, the tiny cafe sports a medley: city councilmen, cops, students and soul food junkies. Service is friendly and the restaurant is busy and cheerful. Eat a piece of history !!
