OUR PICKS
1. (tie) Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and South City Kitchen
The AJC dining team’s specialist in Southern and Neighborhood Fare Jenny Turknett says, “For traditional banana pudding, it’s hard to beat the nostalgic version served at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q. This thick banana-studded pudding topped with crumbled vanilla cookies will remind you of your grandmother’s specialty on a good day.
“The banana pudding at South City Kitchen is the highfalutin cousin to the one at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q. SCK’s trifle-style pudding, layered with whipped cream, banana slices and sugar cookie chards, puts the velvety custard center stage. The banana flavor is less prominent in this version than some, creating a more balanced composition.”

Smokehouse BBQ in Oakwood, Georgia has phenomenal banana pudding. It’s a cooked custard recipe that is served warm and the pudding alone is enough to make the trip up there.

It’s not exactly banana pudding, but the banana dessert at Bahama breeze is fab! 4 slices warm banana bread, sauteed banana slices, hot caramel sauce, sliced almonds, whipped cream – makes my mouth water to think about it.

Not even close — John’s Fine Foods on Jonesboro Road. Everything on their line is great, but the banana pudding is why I drive from Midtown for lunch.

Maybe a little too far to be considered “around Atlanta”, but some of the best ‘nannar puddin’ I’ve ever had was at Country’s BBQ in LaGrange.

It’s always good anywhere it’s layered and BAKED. That northern style cold banana pudding is so-o-o-o-o-o….disrespecful.

Try Dockery’s Meat and Two in Alpharetta. Banana Pudding on Thursdays. Not bad at all.

Fox Brothers is probably my favorite. I’m not going to say “hands down” or “without a doubt” because I feel like those phrases are getting a little over used.

It’s not metro ATL, but Countrys BBQ in Columbus (the one downtown with the Bus) has the best I ever et. Served in mason jars with absolutely perfect meringue on top. Made for years by the same woman daily.

I had Mathews in Tucker a couple of weeks ago and it was good, but I think Mary Mac’s has got them.
