We’ve tried them all. We’ve gone here and there all over Atlanta, gobbling up the grease. But we keep coming back to POT AND PAN RESTAURANT. We have to confess we like this breakfast joint because the cooks go relatively light on the grease in preparing traditional Southern faves. The weekend crowd is diverse, to say the least. Imagine that Fellini decided to stage Satyricon in an Atlanta diner with some extras from Macon. less...

Silver Grill
As any good greasy spoon should be, SILVER GRILL has been family-owned and operated since 1945.

As any good greasy spoon should be, SILVER GRILL has been family-owned and operated since 1945. A swinging screen porch-style door, cozy lunch counter, Coca-Cola in tiny glass bottles and service that couldn't be friendlier heighten the old-timey, neighborhood feel. A slab of dense meatloaf sticky with ketchup will keep your tummy loaded all day. Homemade peach cobbler and coconut cake may make you pine for the lemonade-filled days of a lazy Southern childhood, but the sandwich of country-fried steak wedged between two slices of squishy white bread with mayo is really what Silver Grill's all about.

We were tempted to put names of greasy spoons on a dartboard to make this decision. Grease is grease, right? But then we thought about our own habits. Every Saturday and Sunday morning, we may be found at the bar at POT AND PAN RESTAURANT swilling mediocre coffee with mascara-stained drag queens, bawling brats, circuit boys with cell phones glued to their ears and families who would rather eat grits than go to church. Standard order: two eggs scrambled with feta cheese, grits, biscuits and a double order of jerky-like bacon. The pan-Asian/American staff rocks. "1865 Piedmont Ave., 404-874-0340." less...

We'd love to be P.C. and give this to some mom-and-pop operation, but, truth be told, the WAFFLE HOUSE is hands-down the best greasy spoon.

We'd love to be P.C. and give this to some mom-and-pop operation, but, truth be told, the WAFFLE HOUSE is hands-down the best greasy spoon. Sassy waitresses and cooks busting out orders tickle our blue- collar roots pink. And there's universal ohm comfort in the fact that you can go to any location at any time of day, order the BLT plate with hash browns scattered, smothered and covered and have it turn out the same: familiarly delicious.

1031 Ponce de Leon Ave. 404-875-0276 True, the gentrification of the Poncey-Highland area has made a visit to the Majestic less the anthropological expedition it once was. But it's still the best place to stagger into while under the influence and barely coherent or hung over with a post-coital glow imparted by a purple-haired and pierced love thing. We stick to breakfast and burgers, and we love to pick fights with the sometimes surly staff. less...

174 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur 404-377-5623 Decatur's favorite diner relocated not long ago, but still retains its neighborhood atmosphere, 1950s-style charm and diverse, frequently yummy menu. Entrees can range from trendy sandwiches, omelettes and quesadillas to more traditional breakfast fare like whole wheat hotcakes. It's incumbent on you to try its signature breakfast dish, the aptly named Heap, which comes in a skillet with potatoes, cheese and two eggs any style, with one version featuring sauteed vegetables and another, aptly dubbed "The Elvis, coming with smoked chicken. Eat an entire one and your stomach will take on the dimensions of a full moon, not a crescent. less...

But we like it. We like the people there. They have a little attitude. It feels like home to me. It feels like the greater New York area. less...

With spaceship windows that make you feel as though you're a potato knish in a deli case, Landmark's menu seems to be as dated as it is extensive. Unaffected by the advent of fusion cuisine, you may begin your meal with either soup or a salad and a dinner roll, before proceeding to entree and accompanying vegetable sides. For vegetarians, there are also pasta dishes and salads. Save room for dessert: Cases of picture-perfect puff pastries will assail your saliva glands coming and going. less...
