The menu is somewhat promising, and the area is actually really short on decent barbecue.


Not a fan of 'Cue or SATH? Heck I've been to Smokejack only once, so it shows I'm no fanatic, but it easily exceeds "decent". In fact, I like that Yapper Stacey G and I saw he said he thought it's improved over the years, so I've had it on my long short list to return--just have not yet.

And well, I know that Alabama barbecue place brings out the emotions as much as any. Even off the boards I know peeps who love it and peeps who despise. I say "decent".

Love SATH, had Cue takeout once and it was lovely. Actually, by "the area" I was meant something slightly more confined. It takes quite a while for us to get to either Cue or SATH from the Snow Palace. Smokejack is really uneven for me, and sometimes their spices are just, well, wrong. I'm not at all a fan of Dreamland -- too smokey, too bacon-y (in a bad way for ribs), just not my thing. I'd pay good money for even a Slopes to open up within a 15 minute drive. Even the Sonny's (I know, I know) over on Alpharetta Highway closed and then randomly re-opened as a car dealership. So, if Woody's is even halfway decent I'll end up patronizing them on the regular.

Probably needs its own thread - but since I have not been yet - I will put it here.  The OTHER Havana Restaurant is now open in front of Northeast Plaza on Buford Hwy...  Like I said I have not been able to drop by yet.  Was this the brother on law or brother of the original?  I got confused...

Just to revive some info posted on the old AC board...

There's a slightly updated website available for Hugh Acheson's Empire State South which includes a brief overview of his plans for the new restaurant opening in April 2010.

http://www.empirestatesouth.com/

According to the website the opening has been pushed back until June.

According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Goldberg's is opening in Toco Hills in the next 2 months. Now that should be very interesting. I'll stay with Bagel Palace.

Rw, any chance you could provide a link to that article? I can't find reference to it on the ABC site or on Google. Many thanks in advance if so.

Atlanta Magazine's Covered Dish blog reports that:

1. New bakery called Dough will open in the former Son's Place near Little 5 Points.

2. Long closed, former Acapuelco Grill on W. Peachtree will open as The Daquiri Factory.

3. Shaun Doty's YEAH! Burger will open a 2nd locatino (I know the 1st one hasn't even opened yet) in the former gas station/current car detailing place at the intersection of Virginia and North Highland.

And a couple of different media outlets are reporting that Kevin Gillespie's oft mentioned new BBQ venture is going to occupy the onetime Brake-O shop on Piedmont Road and Piedmont Circle (around the corner from Woodfire Grill).

Somwhere (?) I read that the owner is related to Christo's pizza in Marietta.

Christo's Pizza is quite the blast from the past for me.  I grew up off of Terrell Mill @ Windy Hill and we used to frequent Christo's when i was like 5-10 probably (80-85)...  Place has been around awhile.

Bummer, I kinda liked that place.  Always seemed busy.  Anyone know what happened to them?
