Such a great place to go! I enjoy the food and the atmosphere. The buckets of hot wings they bring are some of the best wings that I have ever had. The service is consistent and very friendly. Its definitely a place I like to visit when I make my way down to Georgia.

Pros: beautiful help and quick service, also great live music!

Cons: uptight older ppl who judge based on appearances

The 3 Dollar Franchise has proven successful, with locations all over the Perimeter. What they lack in drinks they make up for in consistency, with the possible exception of my last visit in early June (2005).

The Buckhead location is a great place to start and end your night, located just across the intersection of Peachtree and Pharr. Patrons are mostly mid-20's to early 30's, the jeans and t-shirt crowd who are looking to have a good time and flirt with members of the opposite sex. The drink specials make the lackluster ambience worthwhile, but the bar looks more like a shack with a fridge than a restaraunt/sports bar.

I'm a fan of dive bars, but it seems as though this 3 Dollar couldn't make up its mind on what to be. The patio is nice, though prepare to leave with stains on your jeans as it's too dark to tell if there are pools of beer/liquor already taking your seat. But don't come around if you like your Long Islands or martinis--these bartenders know shots, highballs, beer pouring, and not much else. Our bartender seemed new to the game, pouring my Long Island heavy on the tequila and missing the sour mix. But don't miss it if all you want is rough booze and frosty beer.

PROS: Good location, patio seating, decent afterhours spot to top off your night
CONS: Newbie bartenders, sketchy bathrooms
