Yes, it’s that time again. Let’s talk about pizza.

It’s been almost two-and-a-half years since we last asked about pizza in Atlanta, so we definitely need to update this one.

It’s said that even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good. But why eat bad pizza when there’s so much good stuff out there? First, we need to know where to find that amazing pizza. That’s where you come in. Whether it’s thin and crispy or thick and chewy, we want to hear about your favorite place for a slice (or a whole pie).

Tell us your pick for the best place to get pizza in and around Atlanta, and what makes it so special.

Best burger

IMG_2659KirbyG’s Diner and Pub (formerly Chevy’s Diner) in McDonough was the readers’ pick for best burger in and around Atlanta. It might be a surprise winner for those unfamiliar with it, but this restaurant’s fans are passionate about the Henry County spot.

1. KirbyG’s Diner and Pub
You say, “KirbyG’s (used to be Chevy’s) in McDonough. Big and juicy burgers on a toasted and buttered bun – Delicious! Vortex used to be my favorite, so Vortex-lovers don’t knock KirbyG’s (because of all the nominations it’s getting) until you’ve tried it. It’s worth the trip” and “By the way no shilling here. Just a lot of locals that LOVE to eat at KirbyG’s…..Do not say bad things unless you have tried it!!! Love the Ole Blue Eyes. I do not have to drive into downtown traffic to get an awesome burger.”
