Family-owned and '50s-inspired, Nikki's Swirl Shoppe specializes in self-serve frozen yogurt, custom milkshakes, and customized sundaes. Salted caramel, creamy cheesecake, chilled cubes of fresh pineapple, and whole blueberries and rasberries decorate frozen yogurt, whose flavors include strawberry, chocolate mint, hazelnut, pistachio, and pound cake. Like the color of trees and the fashion of chameleons, these flavors change with the seasons, with eggnog and pumpkin making appearances in the colder months. In addition to sating singular sweet teeth, Nikki's Swirl Shoppe hosts parties for all occasions.

The eatery's eco-conscious, community-centered mentality carries over into the building itself, which is partially made from recycled materials, and the dining room walls bear the work of local artists.

Start by slamming a quick cow workout with some sliced-beef brisket on the big barbecue sandwich, served with pickles, onions, and Dickey's famous sweet-and-spicy barbecue sauce, which took three years, two fist-fights, and one small kitchen fire to develop ($5). Otherwise, go with the Quarter plate, a 1/4-pound of your favorite meat served with pickles, onions, a roll, and two other homestyle sides ($7 total, sides $1.75 each when purchased separately).

Armed with just a single, generations-old cookie recipe, Great American Cookies opened its first store in 1977, and the rest is history. Today, the franchise boasts locations in malls across the country and nabbed a coveted spot on Entrepreneur magazine’s 2012 Top 500 Franchises in the baked-goods category. As the shop’s reputation grew, so did its menu as chefs churned out a mouthwatering roster of gourmet-cookie recipes, each created and carefully tested in Atlanta. The tempting options now include snickerdoodle, peanut butter with M&Ms, and chewy pecan supreme, as well as freshly baked fudge and cheesecake brownies, and cookie sandwiches stuffed with frosting. The real show-stoppers, however, are the giant chocolate-chip cookie cakes, which can be customized with sweet, celebratory messages or shopping lists penned in colorful icing.
Since John Galardi opened the first Wienerschnitzel location in 1961, the brand has become something of an icon in parts of the country, boasting one of the earliest drive-thrus, partnering in an ad campaign with Baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, and sponsoring popular dachshund races in various cities. Even though the company has grown to hundreds of locations, the menu has remained charmingly simple. Its "world-famous" hot dogs include versions heaped in chili, wrapped in bacon, and topped with sauerkraut. Guests can customize their dogs with Angus-beef franks and pretzel buns, and order combo meals that pair them with chili cheeseburgers or corn dogs. Since 1999, the brand has been partnered with Tastee Freez, so it also serves those famous ice-cream treats.
