At nearly 50 years old, Buddy's has proven itself a neighborhood institution and a fitting rest stop for the weary. Besides being the launching point for Atlanta-favorite King of Pops, its contemporary claim to fame can be found in the recently added cooler of Frozen Pints, the local ice cream start-up made with craft beer. Speaking of which, the pit stop's craft beer selection includes brews from 21st Amendment, Left Hand Brewing Co., Abita, SweetWater, and Red Hare. Buddy's is as serious about its alcohol selection as it is about octane. The wine supply features affordable mainstay Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais all the way up to fancy Veuve Clicquot.
