Visitors at any of The Olive Tree Restaurant?s three locations bask in the tantalizing aroma of garlic drifting from the kitchen, which bustles with a lineup of expert chefs. Seated at a cozy table, guests dig into an array of traditional Greek and Italian dishes, taking alternating bites of veal parmesan and grecian scallops. And their mouth-watering Maryland crab cakes come from a special family recipe that was perfected at their sister restaurant Olive Grove in Maryland. Hosting outdoor dining, the Villa Rica restaurant shelters patrons beneath an awning-protected patio, and the Hiram location houses them in a quaint brick terrace flanked by lattices and the tendrils of hanging plants, which often sneak bites of baked pasta over diners' shoulders. The Hiram location further entertains the senses with live music during dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. At all three locations, patrons can wash down savory bites with wine, draft beer, and specialty cocktails from the full bar, and can request takeout or catering for special events and weddings.
Big, bold flavors abound at Buffalo Joe's Eatery, where cooks grill italian sausages over open flames, toss chicken wings with Georgia Heat hot sauce, and pile half-pound burgers with toppings such as thick-cut bacon and grilled tomatoes. The menu is peppered with signature touches; for example, patrons can order freshly fried pork skins as a side, or spice up beer-battered cod sandwiches with jalapeños that are pickled in-house. Large sheets of paper line the eatery's tables, encouraging visitors to doodle while they dine.
Cold treats are the headliners at Yogiberrys, where you can help yourself to servings of delicious frozen yogurt. But the shop also serves up warm, gooey cookies fresh from the oven. A toppings bar is fully stocked with candy and other life-enhancing sweet things.
With roots that trace back decades to its first location on the Syracuse University campus, it's not surprising that Johnny's Pizza chooses to continue perfecting their New York-style pies here in Georgia. The chefs' hand-tossed dough can be topped with the fresh ingredients of your choosing or made into one of 16 specialty pizzas, including the steak and cheese with onions, mushrooms, and green peppers. Pizza dough also doubles as the shell for calzones and stromboli, while 10.5-inch personal pizzas come in a gluten-free version. Oven-baked subs are layered with meatballs or Italian sausage and pasta dinners feature home-cooked classics such as lasagna and chicken parmigiana, but without the smoke-filled kitchen that comes with so many home-cooked meals.
Since 1964, Blimpie has filled patrons' bellies with submarines packed with freshly sliced meats and quality toppings. Each of the coast-to-coast franchise's locations offers an assortment of bread-based eats ranging from classic deli subs to paninis served between warm ciabatta buns festooned with grill stripes or uneven tan lines. Subsmiths roll up fresh wraps and keep waistlines in check with items approved by Healthy Dining Finder. Kids' meals satiate the appetites of youngsters 12 years old and younger or adults with fake IDs.
