Eating in ATL {Home grown Atlanta}

It's been a while since my last "Eating in ATL" post because I've been saving money by eating out less. But on Friday, I stepped out into the beautiful world of Atlanta eats and had lunch with my friend Casey at a place I'd never been. Home grown Atlanta is just about five minutes away from my job at the Capitol, so I can't believe I hadn't tried this incredible restaurant before!

If you love delicious soul food & southern cooking…you have to try Home grown. As soon as I walked in and saw the bright colored bar, old southern diner set up, and random southern artifacts on the wall…I was hooked. And then I saw waiters bringing out plates of food…I was ready to grub.

They serve locally grown, fresh ingredients and hearty portions. It's also in an area of Atlanta that not many people get to explore.

Casey got the pink eyed peas, mac & cheese, and green beans. 
She said it was awesome!

I ordered the fried chicken sandwich (fried chicken, spinach, tomatoes, ranch-like 
sauce all on Texas toast) and fried green tomatoes. 

When I got back to work, I couldn't stop talking about how great my meal was. And I told Casey that I'm going back to order something else as soon as possible. The sweet tea also gets an A+ rating from me, yum!

What's your favorite southern dish?
