Eating in ATL {Mary Mac's}

Confession. I've been to Mary Mac's Tea Room at least 20 times. I've even celebrated some birthdays there. So I'm not sure why I'm just now blogging about it. Maybe because every time I visit, I'm so excited about eating that I completely forget about blogging... #oops

Last week, I went to Mary Mac's with my friend Elana - it was her first visit (whaaaat?!) And now, she's a big fan :)

When tourists visit Atlanta, Mary Mac's is a hot spot for anyone seeking delicious and authentic southern cooking. And most locals love it too, especially after church on Sundays.

You write down your order on this little sheet, give it to your waiter, and magically...

What you ordered appears in front of you shortly after. This time, I got turnips (one of my favorite sides), fried chicken strips, and macaroni & cheese (another favorite).

Elana got the chicken breast, sweet potato souffle, and fried okra.

The sweet tea, cinnamon rolls, and fried green tomatoes are my favorite items.

Mary Mac's is great for dates, family dinners, or events/parties - I've attended several dinner parties for college organizations at Mary Mac's and the buffet is insane.

What's your favorite southern dish?


  1. This looks soo good, I love restaurants like this!

  2. I don't know if I have a favorite southern dish.

    The food looks amazing though. Completely craving Mac and cheese.

  3. Good lord those chicken fnigers look amazing LOL

  4. I can't think of anything I eat that could be labeled strictly southern.

  5. All these Atlanta restaurants look soooo good!

  6. Oh my goodness, they have cinnamon rolls. Ohhhh... I must come to Atlanta and eat. LOL... I was telling my mom how I've never been to Atlanta and she went, "I beg your pardon..." (we're southern too, you know!)... And I said, "Oh"? And she said, "When your dad was stationed in Virginia we went there for a week with a friend of ours."

    My dad was stationed in Virginia when I was one year old. For some reason, I don't remember that trip! LOL

  7. that good looks delicious!! My stomach just grumbled...I wish I could go to ATL to eat that!!

  8. I am def going to make myself a note to try this place the next time I am in Atl!! Looks so good. In Columbia we have Lizard's Thicket and it is hit or miss. Sometimes its good, other times not so much.

  9. Oh my gosh, I learned about Mary Macs right before I moved from Atlanta to Tennessee and never got to go! Now I'm reallllly sad because that macaroni and those cinnamon rolls look heavenly! Next time I'm in town I'm definitely going to have to give it a try! :)

  10. Mary Macs sounds great, I will have to try it next time I am in ATL! Those cinnamon roll look so delicious!
