was a real "art" to where we shared a meal
while in Atlanta. This is Mary Mac's Tea Room,
located on Ponce De Leon Avenue in Midtown.
The restaurant was started by Mary McKinsey
in 1945, and has been serving Southern favorites
ever since. It was wrapped up, but we were seated
and served quickly, and the food was scrumptious.
You fill out your own menu card and the waitress
returns with your selections, hot and delicious.
That's some fried chicken strips, sweet potato
casserole, hopping john (peas and rice) and
some shrimp and grits, fried okra, and creamed
corn...yum. There are over 30 side orders to choose
from: fried green tomatoes, butter beans, turnip
greens, etc. And they bring a bread basket with
yeast rolls, cornbread, and homemade cinnamon
rolls (which they also sell by the dozen!) Can you
tell I really enjoyed it? If you are ever in town, make
sure you go....you will be glad you did!
