This year, the Fourth of July calls for double the celebration. The national observance is Fri., July 3, which means a three-day weekend so you can get the celebration started a day early. Atlanta restaurants have all the beer, barbecue, and fried chicken you need to make the most of your holiday weekend. Reservations are always recommended, and don't forget to call ahead to confirm availability before heading out.
