Best milkshake in and around Atlanta

YOUR PICKS

Chick-fil-A's hand-spun shakes

Chick-fil-A's hand-spun shakes

1) Chick-fil-A

You said, “None of the fancy places can touch their shakes!”

2) Steak and Shake

3) Flip Burger Boutique

4) Zesto

5) OK Café

OUR PICKS

1) Rita’s

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “The power-packed punch of mango ice with vanilla custard from this Philly-based chain (I like mine better without the cookies) will elevate your mood so much that you’re bound to burn some extra calories just by drinking it.”

2) 10 Degrees South’s “Don Pedro”

3) The Varsity’s F.O. (frosted orange)

4) Flip Burger Boutique

Krispy Kreme is overrated. Go for the pistachio.

5) Dairy Queen

Specifically, the “banana cream pie dream pie” Blizzard

Best milkshake is Burger King hands down. Best hamburger is McDonalds. How do they make it taste so flavorful. Best Chicken: Publix – Hell yeah. That’s all you need to know when in Atlanta. Get you a tasty Milkshake, burger and some fried chicken and life is good!!

For Knowitall, you are lost and don’t have a clue! If that’s your idea of “the best” anywhere you need to get out more!!!!! McDonalds, Publix, Burger King, I am sorry, because you MUST be joking. hahahaha Whoooo thought you were serious for a moment!!!! My bad!!!!

Dairy Queen always had and still does the best milkshakes but the Blizzard is “out of this world” good! Cannot believe nobody else mentioned the Dairy Queen.

Way to go all who picked uncreative chain restaurants for their submission. Sure could go for a mass-produced, processed, chain-shake about now! While you are at it, who has the best sandwich? Let me guess: subway? What about pizza: Dominoe’s? Seafood: Red Lobster?

Check out the OK Cafe at West Paces and Northside. Served in a tall glass with whipped cream. They also bring the extra to the table still in the stainless steel cup it was made in. Fab!

FLIP…. the Krispy Kreme and the Nutella milkshakes are the best in Atlanta. If you haven’t been to Flip, don’t go, I’m tired of it being full everytime I’m there.
