Carrabba’s in Morrow has great service. I’ve been going there quite regularly for years. Always friendly and great service. I can even get in and out of there in 40 minutes if I’m trying to catch a movie, all you have to do is let them know you’re in a hurry and they work with you go get the food out quick!! Never had a bad experience.

The folks at Nuevo Laredo are exceptional. They understand that the space is limited and people are hungry and anxious to eat. Food arrives at the table quickly and hot, there are no mistakes with orders and subsequent trips to the table help the experience move smoothly.

Shorty’s Pizza on North Druid Hills. As was said by another, it’s a small space but the food and service are outstanding. There’s a lot of talent in that room!

Gordon at Haven in Brookhaven is the best server EVER! He raises the bar for the entire fine staff.

Having been involved in the foodservice trade for over 30 years, I can tell you that Houston’s trains their staff as well as anyone. The service is excellent but I will admit it can be annoying sometimes. They are train to turn the table within 30 to 35 minutes so they come to check back on you a little too often sometimes.

I love most of the order takers and food deliverers at Taqueria del Sol on Huff, especially Maggie and Sondra, and George at the Cheshire Bridge location.

Also love the lovely, homey way I’m treated at Colonnade Restaurant. And I usually get a really good server at Cheesecake Factory at Perimeter Mall.

We had an amazing waiter at Abbatoir. And restaurant Eugene is probably the best wait staff overall.
