Our favorites are their Roasted Portabella Mushroom Melt and Sunflower Burger!

The General Muir

The Gun Show has created one of the most unique dining experience you will have during your trip to Atlanta. With roving Chinese dim sum carts, a kitchen that is amid the dining area and sprawling cafeteria style seating, you’ll never want to leave.

Kimball House

Stroll into Kimball House to experience that southern hospitality that Georgia is known for. The inviting atmosphere is reminiscent of a classic tavern and the drinks are like nothing you’ve had before.
