Great, reasonable places to eat.

I'm checking out Atlanta early next year and need some really good places to eat (I love food). Unfortunately I'm on a pretty strict budget so I need to keep it cheap. I love ethnic food, but I'm open to anything, especially if it's traditional Southern food. Thanks!

Oh my gosh where do I begin???? Go to the Sweet Auburn Curb Market downtown and hit up Sweet Auburn BBQ for some BBQ with a twist! There is also a Grindhouse Killer Burgers inside as well.

Ethnic food galore is all around Buford Highway, and the prices are very reasonable. Great Korean sandwiches Lee's Bakeryand they're only about 3-3.50. Also there is a great Columbian restaurant Casa Vieja the address is 3652 Shallowford Rd. I'd go on Friday and get the lunch special. I'd also recommend Panahar Bangladeshi Cuisine. They have all you can eat lunches for $10, and they will give you a coupon for a free lunch if you tell them it's your first time there. You can use it the next time you go.

Checkout Eats if you wanna get a taste of southern food for cheap. The place features chicken as its main entree. The portions are plenty and you can choose a variety of southern side dishes. 

If you want something ethnic, checkout Lee's Bakery on Buford highway. It's a Vietnamese place with awesome pho and Bahmi sandwiches. They won a bunch of awards.

For late night snack, checkout Octopus Bar. It's a Vietnamese restaurant named So Ba by day and opens around 10:30pm. The menu is consisted of a list of crafted seasonal dishes by the chef.

You should try The Varsity.  It's fast food, but it's an experience and one of Atlanta's "must do" experiences.

If you like traditional Southern food try Mary Mac's Tea Room.   The food is fantastic and if you are lucky, you might get a back rub too.

Pappasito's Cantina is probably my favorite restaurant in Atlanta.  The prices definitely vary.  Depending on what you order you can get a good meal for cheap, or an amazing meal if you can drop 20.
