My yorkie has stayed at Rex and Roxy's many times. I love the fact they have separate play areas for large and small dogs. I also love that I can watch him on-line while away. However, every time I've taken him there he comes back sick. The last time his respiratory infection was so bad he had to have multiple costly xrays. The staff are friendly and seem to care about the animals. However, given his recurring illness I can't justify taking him there any longer.
A great spot for brunch near Zoo Atlanta, Solstice Cafe offers customers a nice environment and good food/drinks. The warm steak salad is one of my favorites and never fails to be yummy. I also am a fan of their Bloody Marys. Definitely recommend sitting outside if the weather is nice.
Hands down one of my most favorite bars. It is a consistently good place to go when you're not certain where to go next. The prices are great the food is above and beyond your typical bar fair. They have all you can eat crab legs on Tuesday for 19.99 well worth the price. A great crowd. A great patio. Definitely a great consistent affordable and welcoming bar.
I recently purchased a 2009 Jeep Wrangler from Carmax Crysler Jeep. Their selection is hands down one of the most selective in Atlanta. I picked out the color I wanted (which they had available) test drove it, and financed it all within a few hours. They were friendly even when I had some challenges related to my down payment. I was nothing but satisfied with my service.
Be warned - you will want a cinnamon roll. If not that, one of the many muffins, cup cakes, or other sweet goodness that makes your mouth water when you walk into this place.
Brunch is amazing. It's so amazing you might want to walk in with your elastic pants on. Hell, just don't wear pants it'll give you more room to enjoy the variety of brunch items that exist on their menu. I highly recommend this on a short list of great brunch spots in Atlanta.
Home to a friendly gathering named Margarita Mondays, Los Loros offers a much more diverse menu then your typical mexican restaurants do. The margaritas are decent and currently are on special at $2.50 from M-W. My favorite dish: the Seafood Chile Poblano stands out as a winner amongst the competition. Definitely a place to check out every now and again.
A small quant location that provides consistently good service and food, Gato Bizco stands out among strong brunch competition in Atlanta. Located across the street from the over crowded Flying Biscuit, Gato Bizco wins in food quality, price, and timeliness hands down in comparison to its near neighbor. It likely pulls ahead as one of my favorite spots to brunch in Atlanta. Note: They do not serve alcohol so be prepared to skip to mimosas or bloody marys, but I have witnessed them bring out the chocolate syrup is you order chocolate milk.
When it's patio season this is a great spot to hang out. The patio is dog friendly and most of the time not overly crowded. The food is good with special recommendations to their salads. The inside is smoke friendly so be warned if that's not your thing. I could sit hours out on the patio drinking beer and enjoying the weather. Cabbagetown is a cute neighborhood to walk around as well.
Edgewood Avenue has come a long way in the last year. Nestled not far from the highway the Bureau is a real gym that gets little attention. It is two levels with the downstairs allowing smoking. The bartenders are consistently amazing and always very friendly and fun to talk to. The food is better than most bars and I recommend substituting any side for the unbelievable brussel sprouts. A fun place to hang.
Good food, extensive tequila menu and first class waiters make this a spot to go to every now and again. The tequila bar is lengthy so if that's you're thing this is likely a good spot for you. The food is good, but a bit on the pricey side. Definitely a spot to hit every now and again, but not really a routine hang out.
