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

#1.)Flip has the BEST milkshakes in Atlanta. They have a lot of creative flavors. I was first skeptical about their Krispy Creame milkshake, there are pieces of the doughnut literally in the milkshake! Sounds kind of nasty but it’s so awesome especially if your from Atlanta & grew up on Krispy Kreme. It’s not the place you can stop really fast and grab a milkshake. Plus they are not so reasonable either.
#2.)Not so outside the box. For those classic milkshakes Chick-Fil-A is definantly a close second it is fast, reasonable, & oh so delicious.
Honorable mention- Fat Burger, Steak N’ Shake, & Johnny Rockets

I’m surprised no one’s mentioned the milkshakes now being offered at Taco Bell; the bean burrito/super cheese shake can’t be missed!

The Dairy Queen (now the DQ Restaurant) in Conyers has the best hand-spun milkshakes in town and are very budget friendly! Yum Yum!

As investigators (www.eaglepiservices.com) we’ve investigated many different milkshakes. In order of preference, here’s our favorites: OK Cafe, Johnny Rockets, Bruster’s

Brusters for sure. And I’m sorry I don’t know of any non-chains that have a good shake. I love DQ too! Hate to try the ones at Flip since their burgers are so meh.

For me, it narrows down to two restaurants:

1. Chick Fil A
2. Steak n Shake (I used to work there long time ago)

But if I had to choose the best of the two, I’d go with CHICK FIL A all the way!!!!!!!!!!

By the way, DQ sucks!! Also, BK shouldn’t even be on the list of the best of anything except the Whopper.

Done!

I am an expert shake consumer. I will say that malts taste much better. Hands down Dairy Queen makes the best in Atlanta an at a very reasonable price . Notable mention is Chick-fil-a, krispy cream shake at Flip, and Woody’s (sandwich shop across from Grady stadium, but poor work hours), Wendy’s is also decent. Cheap shakes/malts are at McDonald’s , Bking

Methinks that Flip may be rigging this contest. They are interesting, but I promise you, having tried it at the owner’s last place next to the Fox Theater, that the Foi Gras is not something that more than a handful of people in Atlanta really would rate the “Best Milkshake.” Seriously. It’s another semi-overrated, trendy, new place that will most likely be gone next year, when the shine wears off, the owner moves on to his next venture, and the business settles into routine. By all mean, check it out. But don’t make a special trip just for milkshakes. Different does not always mean better.
