Really tasty and healthy. Try to get there when they have the blt on special! Cash only, though.
I was never as wild about this place as everyone else seemed to be. Seemed kind of like they just made burritos that I could have made at home, which... I mean, why would I pay six bucks for the privilege?
This is the hidden treasure bar of Athens. The college kids forget about it, and the townies have largely abandoned it. Kind of the artsier theater crowd, usually. The Hot Nuts are great, but you can get served one too many and then you throw up in front of the dart board. You can get a cheap pitcher of whatever suits your fancy, though.
This is the seediest bar I've ever been to, and I loved every minute of it.
This is the low-key best spot for a date in Athens. The atmosphere is really intimate, they have AMAZING food, and they're reasonably priced. They also cater, which is delightful.
The awesome biker bar in Athens. Once, I walked past and heard an old, grizzled Hell's Angel doing "Wild World" by Cat Stevens and it blew my young mind. Caveat emptor, though: it's cash only. Cheap, but cash only.
This place is a lot better now that they're open 24/7. They're the only place in town to get deep fried oreos, and if you're just looking to cram on the west side for finals, their coffee is cheaper than Donkey. Plus the lighting is harsher, and you're less likely to fall asleep.
My roommate came back one morning, hungover and coming off an acid trip, telling me about the best chili cheese fries in the land. It turned out, not only where they the best in the land, they were possibly the best in the universe. Get the Tempest dog and some chili cheese fries, and you'll be hangover-free.
So this is the bar, in a town with 40 bars in a three block strip, that sells shots of Johnnie Walker Blue. It's catering to people basically just for homecoming weekend, when alumni with money come in. Otherwise, it's too expensive for the student budget, and the food's not worth it.
A really well-stocked health food store. Kind of tucked away in an apartment complex, but their sandwiches are amazing and you can find all the healthy stuff you could want.
