I love Eats. It is not pretentious, and never tries to be something it's not. You decide - pasta or chicken with veggies (or a veggie plate). Then you order and wait until it's ready. The prices are fantastic, and the food is ALWAYS good.

The only con -- parking. The parking lot at Eats is a nightmare to navigate, especially when the restaurant is busy, so be prepared. They take cash only, but do have an ATM on site.

This place ROCKS! My husband introduced this place to me when we lived no where near. I fell in love with it. Now we live 10 minutes away. Perfect! All of the veggies are fresh and so tasty. Not over cooked. My husband loves the jerk chicken. Its very spicy but they give you have a chicken. Plenty to share or take home. I haven't had the pasta side yet. But everytime we go there are plenty of people that have ordered from that line.

Eats is a very casual place with some very good food. Pick your line - pasta or chicken. They make some great jerk chicken that comes with black beans and rice. The other line is pasta which is also good. You won't leave hungry.

If you want relatively healthy food and are on a tight budget, come here. Most places charge insane prices for pasta, which is by definition cheap unless it is homemade. There are also meat and vegetable choices, and the veggies actually still taste like veggies.

At Eats, reminisce your school days by picking up a red plastic tray and choosing from a pasta station where you can pick your sauce and noodles and add toppings or a meat and twos or threes station. They also offer a variety of vegetarian options and side dishes. Beer and wine are also available. My husband loves the jerk chicken, and I always steal his cornbread. Can you say lots of good food for cheap.

If you are tired of the processed foods offered by most "casual dining" restaurants then Eats is the place for yo. It is healthy eating at an affordable price.

So when you are a college student looking for a good bite to eat, do you turn to the school cafeteria? Most don't. What about a businessman/woman wanting to entertain some new clients but not wanting to go anywhere upscale simply because they don't feel like getting all fancy.

Eats.

It's cheap, tasty, VERY filling, healthy, and laid-back. Go in there and you will see all walks of life. College students, people on dates, families with kids, businesspeople, aspiring musicians, failing musicians, skaters, bikers,... you name it, you can find them there.

PROS: Cheap, tasty, filling
CONS: None I can see

Eats is becoming somewhat of a legend.

Excellent food; low prices; kitschy atmosphere. What more can you ask for?

What I don't get is how they can make super-simple things like a sweet potato so darn good. I mean just a plain baked sweet

The BBQ chicken was tender and flavorful but the macaroni-n-cheese was a little bland. The cornbread and collards were ok. I brought the turkey lasagna home to my son and he loved it, I wished I had a taste but he ate every morsel. It

Every time I come back to Virginia Highlands I always go to eats three or fout times a week for lunch, BEFORE or AFTER the crowds set in. The crew is always happy and always grill my garlic bread the way I want it. I go for the green pasta with turkey sauce and a side of pesto, or the jerk chicken with greens and beans. Bob the owner is always on the floor bussing tables and there is a great mix of suits, blue collar, and students. I get a kick from the black chicks dressed to the nines. So it's not fancy, but always clean. If you have a hard time getting on to Ponce take a left out of the parking lot and go through the neighborhood to Monroe and go left to head to Boulevard and downtown. Turn left on Ponce from Monroe to head east toward Decatur. They do take plastic, contrary to other reviews and if you need some resturant to make you feel important or to kiss your a*s please go somewhere else away from the neighborhood because we don't want you here. I'd like a place like this in my new town.

My friend dragged me to this place last week and I had one of the most enjoyable dining experiences in my life. Their food selection was really enticing and I had a very hard time choosing which entre to order. Their friendly wait staff recommended their best-sellers, which was very awesome. It was so flavorful. I really liked it a lot. I was definitely pleased with both the food and the service.

HI This restaurant is really the best ever. Start with the minute you walk in the door the workers are so friendly and so willing to walk a first timer through the menu and the set up. We were there on a Sunday and all workers were young guys with great smiles and very upbeat attitudes. The food that Chef Steven Bacon presents is totally over the top. Start with portion size. It is normally super sized. The Taste is total heaven and you can taste that this food is made with this mans heart and soul plus his natural talent. The menu is simple and straight forward and there REALLY is something for everyone of ALL ages. This restaurant is a "foodies" heaven. There are so many choices you can spend forever mixing and matching the combos and never get tired of it. Even the salad dressings are fantastic. I recommend "EATS" to everyone and anyone who wants excellent food, great friendly service and fantastic low prices. An added bonus is that it really is a great family place too. I give "EATS" a New York 5 Star Rating!!!!!!!!!!

Two lines of menu: Pasta line, offering even spinach pasta, with your choice of sauces. Meat & veggie line offering my personal fav of Jjerk chicken, black beans & rice, cornbread. Very wonderful. Of course there is more meats and veggies such as meatloaf, sweet potato, collard greens, mac&cheese. They do have a dessert line but I never eat it because I am too full. If that isn't enough to please your senses the crowd always provide entertainment.
*Funny... this review site would not let me spell Jjerk the regular way because it was offensive so I had to misspell it :)

Eats is great comfort food at low prices. You may be surprised at how limited the menu is, but I still don't get tired of it. Your choices are: J*rk chicken, lemon chicken, turkey meatloaf, or pasta. Plus there are several sides to choose from. The chicken is fantastic, and I also really love the tortellini with marinara sauce. My favorite sides are the collards, cous cous, and cornbread. Mac and cheese is also good. The broccoli is meh. Avoid the meatloaf at all costs. You definitely get full from the chicken dishes. The prices are kept low by the lack of tableside service. You order at the counter, then pick up your own food. Drinks, silverware, etc all self-service. A good place to go with friends or if you are short on time. Not romantic, not good for large groups. Expect to spend just over $9 for chicken plus 3 sides (includes tax).

Oh my gosh! This place was better than I expected. I ordered the erk chicken and 2 sides and was so surprised to get a real 1/2 of a chicken! It was flavorful, filling, and perfect. Their couscous is good and the service was extremely fast. My friend ordered the chicken alfredo and that was the best alfredo sauce we had ever tasted. They need to bottle it and sell it! It's not a pretty restaraunt, but you don't even notice because of the food! I can't wait to go back and try some more stuff!!

I try to get downtown at least a couple times a month to eat here.
this is my absolute favorite place to eat anywhere.

I love the inexpensive prices and the variety of pasta with several different sauces and toppings on one side of the restaurant, then homestyle fair on the other. you can get baked chicken, and turkey meatloaf along with vegetables on the other side. whatever your taste, the food is within the budget.

i absolutely disagree with the idea that Eats shouldn't be considered 'romantic'. my wife and i enjoyed our first date there, and then several years later, i saw it fitting to propose to her there. we happen to live in new york city, among any number of cliche 'romantic hot spots', but none would be as meaningful nor as close to home as the far off Eats. we miss it greatly, but always make it our first destination while visiting ATL. thanks EATS!!

Cheap eats - Basically a Meat and Two Sides or Pasta. Don't expect a five-star meal, but for the price, the food is not bad. It is far more tasty and far more healthy than any fast food chain. Service is fairly quick and easy. The best part of all is perhaps the mix of people dining in. Parking is available, but the lot is small.

Biggest Problem - Eats is Cash-Only. They've lost my business on multiple occasions because I generally don't have cash and don't care to spend the extra bucks at the ATM.

Overall a good place to grab a warm meal, just make sure you are carrying a $10.

A very good idea, well executed. The ingredients are fresh, the menu is simple, but there are lots of permutations with three meats ( My surprise favorite is the turkey meatloaf ! ), more than ten vegetables/ sides, many pastas, and six or seven sauces. Drinks and deserts, too. Busy and worn, but clean. Food is served quickly; you pick it up at the counter, and choose a table. The quality is consistent, and a very good value. It's even great for vegetarians!
It is NOT romantic, leave your snooty attitude at home, but the staff is generally pleasant and helpful. As someone else said, it's a good place to go when when you haven't got a special place in mind. Or it may be your special place if good food is more important than impressing a guest!

Food is not that cheap. I spent 30 bucks on 3 people and nobody liked their food.
The food reminded me of my old high school cafeteria. It was horrible. Chicken was
bland and dry. Pasta had no flavor. Only go to this place if you want to be reminded of
your old high school cafeteria.

I would rather go to Wendy's.

Basically, if it's one of those days where you can't decide what you want, go to Eats. They have a really good menu with everything from Caribbean-Jerk Chicken to mac and cheese (both of which are yummy). I have daydreams about their fettucini alfredo with garlic bread. And it is all SO cheap--perfect for us college students and starving artist types. Don't expect a fine dining experience, though. While Eats is more relaxed than other short-order joints, service is fast and no-nonsense.

Most restaurants I like have one or two menu items that I enjoy. At Eats, I crave any one of 6 or 7 things and always leave satisfied. The alfredo and pesto sauces are better, in my opinion, than ritzy Italian restaurants. The service is fast and no-nonsense. Don't go there if you're expecting a guy with a towel over his arm to serve you at your table. This is tasty food with a diverse crowd at a low price.

This is my 1st post, but I've been an AVID eater since birth & enjoy good, quality food!

If the price is right, even better, being that I'm a public school teacher, married to...a public school teacher.

Eats is quick-to-the pace when you step-up to order at a station. Good service is a gem!

Their jerk-chicken is fanTAStic! So are their pastas & veggies. Ginger beer has always been a nice touch with any of their entrees. The place is clean & we've never had a problem finding seating, though there are ALWAYS lots of people dining.

The only things I would ask to improve, would be to move it near to my school so someone may find it in their heart to pick-up for us OR for it to be in the N.GA mtns. so we could ride up on our bikes (motorcyclists LOVE a good ride-to-eat)!

Bonne appetite!

Best Cheap Food, crawling with Emory Students. It seems like an off campus cafeteria. Pasta is solid, jeck chicken is like 2 meals.

Seriously - you get so much for your money here. It's pretty straightforward - pasta or chicken. The pasta comes with a range of sauces and add-ons (like sausage) and you choose the pasta type itself. The chicken comes in 2 varieties, always juicy and well-spiced, and a choice of 2 sides. Saved my life many times over.

I see why this place is popular. The variety is good and jamaican (can't say the real word here, haha) chicken delish, thoughI was dissapointed that it was not as spicy as I expected...Still, I would recommend this place anyday.

Eats is not a romantic place to take a date, but if you're on a tight budget and want a large helping of yummy, fresh food, it's awesome. There are two lines, one for pasta and one for chicken and veggies. I usually go for the chicken and veggies, since places like Figo and Little Azio are doing the "mix and match" pasta deal better. The chicken is outstanding, and I also really like their corn on the cob, black beans and couscous. This is one of the best meals you can get for under $8 in the city.

Where else can you get half a chicken, rice, black beans, and cornbread for $6? The pasta is good and cheap too.

Low prices, and the Best Jerked- Chicken in the ATL! Just order at the counter for that chicken and choice of two sides. We like the black beans and rice. They also have a pasta counter, with Italian sausage and several sauces to choose from. Hole-In-The-Wall atmosphere, with the best diversified diners in the city, who know a good value. Good Eats!

EATS really is the kind of spot where you pay 5 dollars for a hot homemade meal that'll stick to your bones. Skip the pasta section; the noodles are often overdone and the sauces are pretty bland. However, the meat and veggies line is what EATS is known for--perfectly steamed greens, fresh cornbread, comforting chicken chili and great rotisserie meats. The selection of veggie sides is impressive. Don't come here expecting shiny-clean tables and muzak playing in the background, and the parking lots leaves a lot to be desired. However, the food is fresh and fast and the prices won't leave you hurting.

I visit Atlanta at least twice a year and a visit to Eats is mandatory. The food is pretty good, the ambiance is so-so, the parking sucks, but for $5-$6 and change, it's a marvel. I love the jerk chicken, greens, and of course the sweet tea. Long live Eats!

This amazing "hole in the wall" services some of the best chicken and greens in Atlanta and for some of the lowest prices. Given, it feels a bit like a soup kitchen, the food is much better than many of the more expensive restaurants in the Highlands neighborhood next door.

This bare-bones, cafeteria-style restaurant draws a crowd of diverse in-towners with its economy dining. Counter service is fast and furious; dishes are prepared while you wait and handed over on plastic trays. Despiteā€¦
