Francar’s is well known for having some of the best chicken wings in Macon. Now try the Mercer Village restaurant’s Sunday brunch, which includes chicken and waffles, French toast, fish and grits, biscuits and staples like bacon, sausage and eggs.
You would not expect to find a place like this in a strip mall in Gray, but you’re in for a surprise. Entering SurReal Grill gave me flashbacks of Disney World, with its slick decor and uplit plants. The food and service match the bar set by the interior, with a sensibly diverse menu and knowledgeable waitresses who attend culinary school.
The farm-to-table movement in Macon now has an Italian contender, and it is a glorious thing. Considering that fresh, local food is a large part of the appeal of Italian food, it’s no wonder Pietro’s is quickly becoming the hottest restaurant in town.
Goodie Gallery in Milledgeville has been around for more than 25 years and now has a new owner. While many of the favorite bakery items are still there, the menu has been expanded to include breakfast, lunch and even light dinner options.
What happens when someone from a long line of excellent cooks goes to culinary school? You get Memaw’s at LG’s Restaurant, a little dive of a place on Mumford Road that serves up some of the best Southern food I’ve ever had.
Located near the Korean-based Kumho Tire plant on Ga. 247, Kum O Jung is currently operating on a very limited menu. Some of the items they offered when they first opened have been crossed off until the owners feel satisfied with the quality of those items.
I do love a good breakfast, and Local Yolkal Cafe in Milledgeville sure knows how to do it. They have a convivial atmosphere that feels almost like Athens, filled with students and locals alike. The waitstaff is knowledgable and extremely friendly, but in a casual way like you're just over at a friend's house having breakfast.
The lesson here is, "don't judge a book by its cover." The Watson Boulevard strip mall in Warner Robins, where Asian House is located, is nothing to look at, but this was some of the best Asian food we've tried in is area, for an exceptional price.
What a gorgeous place! If you've been waiting for an upscale version of an English pub, downtown Macon now has one. Bearfoot Tavern has moved to Second Street with a new and much improved look and feel as compared to its Cherry Street incarnation.
Macon Pizza Company is not only a local business, it's completely family run. On our visit, a very with-it young lady took our order, made suggestions and answered the phone without missing a beat. When our food was ready, a different cutie on wheels skated over to deliver everything with friendly and efficient service. Dad works the kitchen and mom makes sure it all gets done correctly.
