Taco T's off Atlanta Road Smyrna (go for a burrito or quesadilla), and Dai Nam (Pho) off Jimmy Carter in Norcross. Both are ridiculously good.
Check out Sabores del Plata in Norcross. Argentine restaurant where you can get a little grill full of meat. Sides aren’t as generous, but you can get enough meat for multiple people. My mom (from Argentina) always insists that we go when she comes to visit.
Ooooo Amo a la comida de Argentina, no sabia que habia un lugar aqui en Atlanta donde se da carnes Argentinos.
Si, es una parrillada de verdad!!
Thaicoon on Briarcliff. If you get a Thai lunch special it will cost around $10 and last 2-3 meals (and you get soup or a salad with the entree).
I second that. I a little expensive for takeout tho
Oh yeah, everybody's all about the atmosphere these days.
Get a torta from El Dorado in Duluth. You’ll eat for at least 2 meals, full, and it’s like $7. Also comes with free chips and salsa if you dine in.
I’m near Duluth and always stop by here when I can, great spot!
If you’re in Duluth, Las Costas Nayaritas is really good and has huge portions. Don Pedro and Pollo Pelón are also worth checking out and are on the same road.
I've been getting La Mei Zi for takeout the past few weeks and my entrees are always enough for dinner plus two nights of left overs.
All of the La Fonda (cuban food) locations give hefty portions and are reasonably priced!
They do not wear their masks properly in the kitchen.
I mean... I've just come to accept that there's a subset of restaurant workers who don't wear their masks or masks properly. It is what it is. If that means you take your patronage elsewhere, more power to ya, but don't get ahead of yourself unless you're giving each kitchen an ocular pat-down, or haven't eaten out in 10 months.
I wear masks everywhere I go, but as someone who used to work in kitchens....wearing a mask and cooking is terrible. For one, it's usually a thousand degrees in there. Also, you need to taste the food you're making, so that means constantly taking off and putting back on your mask (and constantly touching your face isn't a good thing) as well as removing it to drink water. I'm all for the front of the house staff wearing it and for employees to wear it when they're not in the kitchen, but it isn't practical to enforce mask wearing on the cooks.
If you said you live near Duluth, there are a plethora of Korean restaurants. I’ve never been disappointed anywhere I’ve been. My favorite casual lunch spot of Dan Moo Ji. They give out pretty normal banchan for a lunch spot. I can get a meal in the $12 range and have leftovers.
For a more full restaurant experience- my favorite is Jang Su Jang. All of their dishes are excellent. You get a ton of banchan as well. I usually end up spending more here, only because I want to try so many things. My kids love the seafood pancake. Their tofu soups are to die for as is the king beef rib soup.
Jang Su Jang is a good one. I can get 3 meals out of the ramen tofu soup, with all the banchan and rice it comes with
Mamak, LanZhou Ramen, Pho Bac, Masterpiece, La Mei Zi, Woo Nam Jeong Stone Bowl House
If you’re looking for AYCE, Beef Grille in Roswell is $15 for a Brazilian grilled meats.
I prefer Rios steakhouse for a dollar more
Raging Burrito. The triple dip is great in its portion/cost.
Surin of Thailand has solid portions, same with top spice
Check out Atlanta Chinatown! They have a few restaurants which are reasonably priced and they are outstanding. At some of the restaurants, you might be able to make two meals out of one.
Ming’s bbq (get the honey bbq pork), Mamak, and Sushiology come to mind
Which Ming's were you referring to? I think there is one in Doraville and Duluth.
I’ve only been to the one in Doraville
Came to say mings as well!
I was going to say Ming's too! Definitely getting a huge portion for the price
Every Jamaican restaurant in Atlanta givers absolutely insane portions.
Sushi kiku in Buckhead does 1/2 priced rolls. So rolls are around $4 for 6-8 pieces. Specialty rolls around $6-$7
Taqueria at Supermercado el Sol. It’s a grocery store with a small restaurant in it. You will need a to go box for this one. And it’s Delicious.!
Most food court options in Asian grocery store have good portions. Jusgo, hmart, etc
Harue fried chicken right outside of doraville hmart if you are into Korean fried chicken
Many pho places in the area too
In fact, now that I think about it, most Asian restaurants in that area are relatively inexpensive compared to the food I usually eat out here in Cumming and Alpharetta
Oh shit Korean Fried Chicken? The true KFC?? I have to try this
el jinete in Snellville
LaFonda. My favorite
Fried Rice King in Clarkston gives an insane amount of food for the price. Most spots in Duluth do pretty well in terms of portions and are delicious. Thank You Chicken and Quickly are my go-tos
Casa Grande in Austell.
El Pollo Dorado. They have two locations, acworth and marietta. Crazy big portions of delicious chicken!
Love that place!
I know it’s a stretch but choochoo in Athens gives you an inordinate amount of food
A Choo Choo Express also opened fairly recently off of Satellite Blvd. in Duluth (near Gwinnett Place).
Did not know that. That’s awesome I’m in Atlanta now Thanks!
Athens is perfect, i’m 30 mins away and go there all the time to visit with friends at UGA, definitely gonna check it out
The sandwiches at little Italy are also very hefty
Cali n' titos is a must then.
i'm a big fan of Las Delicias De La Abuela for columbian food.
Nuevo Laredo! ....and it’s the best non-authentic mexican you can get soooo....
It's very close to what a Mexican tourist town restaurant which caters to Americans would serve.... So I guess you're almost right?
