One of my favorite things about traveling is trying the local cuisine. Southern food is one of my favorites, so I couldn't leave Atlanta recently without getting a real southern meal. I found the perfect one at Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint. This place has a laid back atmosphere complete with live jazz music. One of its customers told us he travels from across town for their fried chicken, so we were in for a treat!

They specialize in homemade moonshine, so ordered some. The moonshine had raspberries and pineapple. It was amazing! For dinner, I got the "Juke Joint Fried Chicken," which comes with two of their sides. The sides include garlic steamed broccoli, steak fries, fried green tomatoes, okra, sweet potato fries, cheese grits and mac & cheese. I settled on the mac & cheese and collard greens. The food was brought to us in no time. I quickly realized this was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. The batter on the chicken was phenomenal. The mac & cheese was out of the world. I also tried some of my friend's waffle, which was so good.

Sweet Georgia's has all of the southern favorites like shrimp & grits, fried catfish, peach glazed Alaskan salmon, grilled rib eye, jambalaya pasta and a St. Louis rib rack. They all serve several vegetarian dishes including salads. Desserts include peach cobbler, banana pudding, spiced apple bread pudding and pecan pie.

If you're ever in downtown Atlanta, be sure to check out Sweet Georgia's. The food is incredible!
