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.”

Don’t have a nominee. But I really appreciate your various “Best of Atlanta” blogs. I frequently travel to Altanta and your blogs have led me to some terrific restaurants that I would have never found on my own.

@bhorsoft I grew up in Columbus, and we ate at Country’s a lot! You’ve just made me want to take another trip to visit family, and go out to eat for dinner!!! (OK, that didn’t come out right, but I’m not going to change it. LOL I just got back Saturday night from a visit with family – I don’t just go down there when I want to eat at Country’s.)

Amazing how many people like Mary Mac’s. It was good once, about 20 years ago.

“Amazing how many people like Mary Mac’s. It was good once, about 20 years ago.”

That is because they have not eaten there in twenty years. Most folks occasionally visit based on what they once were not what they have become.

Banana pudding is fattening. Try eating some fresh vegetables instead!

Swallow at the Hollow in Roswell on Green Street. They serve theirs with a warm chocolate chip cookie and homemade whipped cream. I didn’t even like banana pudding until I had theirs.

I’m not a fan of cold banana pudding, but once you nuke the BP at Fox Brothers for about 40 seconds its DIVINE!
