There are those who like fish tacos and those who shrug them off, but either way the huge, deliciously succulent fillets used for the fish tacos here are likely to impress.

Good food. The adobe chicken tacos, the burritos, and the black bean cuban are wonderful. As to what to watch out for, well, that would be speed of service. They are not always the most prompt. Sunday brunch is a great price for the food you get. Oh, try the jalapeno grits - I wish they were stone ground, but for not being so, very good!

Regarding parking - you are in a neighborhood. It is not an issue, as street parking is plentiful. If you are opposed to walking a block, then maybe you should go to Waffle House.

Cheers,

Pros: Food prices, great for kids early (all 3), drink prices

Cons: Service time could be better

Great place. The service is excellent. A bit of a family-type place, but I got over that quickly considering the PBR pitchers were $4. That made everything excellent. Forgive the grammatical errors, I did take advantage of the $4 PBR pitchers, did I mention that? Ha, anyways the service was prompt, the location was in a somewhat quiet part of Cabbagetown, I guess? The food was better than other restaurants that are bars. Overall, give this place a chance. I had the Philly Cheese Chicken Style Sandwich, with Asian Coleslaw, and it was excellent. Again, the $4 PBR pitchers, holy S$it. Nice restroom, might I add.

Pros: Cheap pitchers, and decent food.

Cons: Um, I guess it is a little more family oriented early on, but just come later, no problem!

We go far and wide in search of good veggie sandwiches, and Dakota's black bean Cuban is a winner. Great little lunch spot as an alternative to the pizza place across the street.

I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dakota Blue. I went with 5 of my friends to brunch last Saturday at 11:00 AM. We were promptly seated even though we had a large party. The server was VERY friendly. Our food was amazing! I had a thing called a Salvador Dali...it was kind of like eggs benedict but vegetarian and on home made bread, it rocked! One of my friends had crabcakes benedict and she loved them, another friend had some yummy blueberry pancakes! Bloody Mary's were also excellent!! Check it out you won't be disappointed.

Pros: Great outdoor seating, no wait for seat at brunch

Cons: parking

.

This place has a great menu especially for brunch. However, the service is painfully slow and the servers have no idea how to pre-bus. For a place being as small as it is, there should be NO problem with this. The past few times that I have dined I sat at the bar alone and the server was rude and impatient. I have seen the owner on occasion and he seems to be a nice man. Because the food is good I recommend this place for for to-go ONLY!!!

Pros: food, brunch, in my neighborhood

Cons: slow and rude service

We lived in Grant Park for 2 years, and miss "DB" as we call it the most. They have much more than burritos- and we love getting the Super Nachos with vegetarian chili the most. Their little sauces that come with chips are also fabulous- they come in squeeze bottles, and there are 3 flavors. I love the chipotle flavored one. And their chips are really good, as well. The service is great- they are just an all-around perfect little neighborhood eatery. Highly recommended on the weekend when the weather is nice- you can sit outside and enjoy the neighborhood. Also, they feature local artists' work on the walls inside, which is a wonderful touch.

Dakota Blue is one of our favorite casual restaurants in all of Atlanta, and certainly our favorite in the Grant Park area. It's a relaxed & casual atmosphere where you get consistently good food & drinks. The owners, Alan & GiGi, and the staff, especially Anne & Elizabeth, are the friendliest, cooolest people you'll ever meet. Chef Tony's specials are always good; quite often they're downright amazing. Everything is extremely reasoably-priced. On weekends you can enjoy the amazing brunch - Crab Cakes Benedict is my personal fave item. If the weather's nice the sidewalk tables are wonderful. As Grant Park residents, we especially enjoy being able to walk to & from Dakota. It can be fairly crowded with kids & families, but after about 7:30/8:00 pm it's mostly adults. If you're not a "kid" person be aware of that. We take friends & family to Dakota when they're in town and they always enjoy it as much as we do.

First off I don't usually write reviews but one of the later "reveiws" got to me. Please disregard jiiterbug's tale. It's just not true. Been a regular since the early days and the place just has gotten better and better. I often meet my friends from the neighborhood there. The food is anyhting but greasy. have had the best of experiences with the Burgers, brunch, Specials and the new menu addtions, which keep coming.
IMO owners and staff are giving Grant Park a much needed restaurant that sparkles with life, and with a great affordable menu.

Pros: Food, Owner & Staff, Prices

Cons: That guy who always is hanging out at the Bar

My wife & I have been regulars for the past 3 years at Dakota Blue and absolutely love the place. It's just what we need in Grant Park - a neighborhood restaurant that has fantastic owners, the friendliest staff known to man, cheap drinks and last but not least, surprisingly good food at incredible prices. We started going for the chips, homemade guacamole & burritos but quickly ventured out to try some of the specials. Crabcakes for $10? Best for the money we've ever had. And you can NEVER go wrong with a burger - I'd put them up against the fabled Vortex anyday. Margaritas are awesome - surprising Tequila selection for place of this size, but for some reason we always seem to opt for a pitcher of Sangria. If you like sangria at all, this is right up your alley. And did I mention inexpensive? <$20 for a pitcher??? Crazy stuff.

The real secret to this place though is the brunch. Pancakes. Oh my God. Pancakes like you've never had before or will after. They're the size of a small child (three fill a platter!) and are lighter than a cloud over the desert in summer. And if you're adventurous (like me!) give a try to the Eggs Salvador Dali - a take on Eggs Benedict with spinach and a spicy chipotle sauce. Mmmmm.

I give great kudos to Dakota Blue and look forward to dining there week after week after week.

My husband and I have been to Dakota Blue many many times. I hate the feeling that I get everytime I leave that place. ( Money Wasted ) I think they try too hard to create these crazy new things, but give it up people, sometimes, it just isn't good. I hate knowing that I have to avoid anything that is fried or even requires butter because grease will be OVERWHELMING!! The time it takes to have your order get to the table is ridiculous! Just make sure you're in good company. If the food takes under 30 minutes then something is undercooked. Whether its the beans or the hamburgers that are ordered Medium. Now I'm not a picky eater, and a hip mexican shin-dig which this place wants to be appeared as is really below my standards. I just expected more. The location no doubt is awesome. Which helps. The staff, while really nice, is crazy enough slow too. I have had the opportunity to meet the owner and I was very pleased with his attitude. He is a very nice man. I just hope the food starts to match his and his staffs personality. OVER-THE-TOP.

Dakota Blue is a real neat place. The relaxed atmosphere and good eats and drinks bodes well for this revitalized part of Atlanta. The owners are extremely nice people and interact with the customers. Try the great margaritas at a great price. This place was a real find!

My wife and I love brunch, but I am an impatient fella. I just won't wait for mor than 10 minutes. A friend told us about Dakota Blue's brunch. We got there around 10:30 AM and were promptly seated. I really like a good cupof coffee. I couldn't tell what brand they served, but it was clearly a little better quality than I have gotten at some places. I ordered something called Eggs Salvador Dali. It came with jalapeno cheese grits. My wife had chocolate chip pancakes. My dish was incredible, especially the grits. My wife also enjoyed her pancakes. I would definitely recommend the brunch to anyone.

Pros: No wait, unique menu items, value

I've upgraded my rating significantly due to improvements noticed in 2006.

PROS:
-Food is always VERY good & made FRESH!
-Creative specials everyday. I've tried a few and was always pleased.
-Servers are typically very friendly and fun to chat with.
-Drink pricing is excellent. Good Margaritas and great prices on draft beer.
-STELLA currently on TAP!! Yea, my favorite.
-Great location with some outside seating (love it in nice weather).
-No waiting to get in.

CONS:
-SLOW service (maybe we all need to slow down,....here is the place to do it)
-Air Conditioning is weak (it is usually rather warm inside on hot days)
-Noisy

OVERALL: Good choice if you are not in a hurry. If they could only improve the speed of the service a bit this place would be awesome!

This is a great addition to an area starving for a good burrito joint. Not only is the food fresh, but they serve up some monster margarita's for cheap. They also have checkerboards painted on the tables and many board games available. Definitely check this place out!
