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.
Welcome to Macon and the Cherry Blossom Festival! Macon has become a mecca of independent restaurants and we've selected places where you can eat like a local. Restaurants are a great way to build special memories of your visit to the Cherry Blossom Capital of the World -- at a chain restaurant, you might as well be at home!
Are you always looking for a good deal? Can you overlook small problems if it gets you something good for less? Then Edgar's Bistro in the old Sam's Club building on Eisenhower Parkway is your kind of place.
Ichiban means "No. 1" in Japanese, but its sister restaurant Dai-Ichi also means "No. 1". Then there's their other sister restaurant, Zen, also in Warner Robins. They all share the familiar formula of a "hibachi" or teppanyaki restaurant: peaceful decor, sushi bar and several teppanyaki tables where your dinner is made in front of you.
Milo and Ronda's Homestyle Cookin' is a cute little cafe tucked into the corner of a plaza on Arkwright Road. When we came, it was very quiet, with several customers stopping by to take meals home -- probably regular customers who just stop by to grab dinner on the way home.
You know you've found a good spot when the place is popping for lunch and it's the first day back after a holiday week off. J&F Caribbean Delight is off of Mercer University Drive near the Macon Mall and it's nothing fancy, but the food is the star of the show.
Sometimes you have to look at more than just the usual elements to find the appeal of a place. While Polly's La Mesa may have started as a Mexican restaurant back in 1976, it has become an icon for the folks who have been loyally coming back for 40 years.
Benson's Steak and Sushi looks very "Orlando" from the outside -- large, glamorous and dramatic. Inside, it's a little less polished, but it's still very unusual and dramatic compared to your usual steak and sushi restaurants.
Don't let the location fool you -- this quiet little Mexican restaurant near the Macon Mall packs a solid punch. The prices at El Dorado are reasonable, the service is personable, and the food is as good as any other Mexican restaurant in this area.
