Food & Drink

Hit the Ten Spot

Rumbling tum, meet economy. Delicious meals, meet Mr. Hamilton. When it comes to cheap eats in this town, pickings are anything but slim.

1. Oak Grove Market: The dollar breakfast bar (sausage, eggs, grits) and daily lunch special (2757 Lavista Road, 404-315-9831).

2. Alon’s: Single-serving Nutella? Pinch us. Grab a few up front, order some bread, and splurge on good coffee (1394 North Highland Avenue, 404-872-6000; 4505 Ashford Dunwoody Road, 678-397-1781).

3. Holy Taco: Oye como cheap. Grab a gazpacho cup and pork belly torta and wash ’em down with a ginormous sweet tea (1314 Glenwood Avenue, 404-230-6177).

4. M Bar: Chicken sliders are marinated with orange rum, lime, and ginger, topped with lettuce and tomato, and served on grilled flatbread (257 Peters Street, 404-523-1555).

5. Quattro: Sit parkside with a huge plate of fresh hummus and a summer brew (1071 Piedmont Avenue, 404-881-0000).

6. Ceviche Taqueria: Hit the road (okay, GA-400) for poblano soup topped with shrimp and crab and served with jalapeno cornbread (963 Canton Street, 678-461-4025).

7. SunO: Not an Asian dessert. It’s a state of mind. Shovel a gourd of shaved ice milk topped with just about any fruit under the sun (1291 Old Peachtree Road, 770-497-1567).

8. Super H Mart Food Court: Pork to-go comes with rice, bok choy, and relish. Unless you want a whole roast duck. They sell those, too (2550 Pleasant Hill Road, 770-495-7522).

9. Pig-N-Chik: Napkins are free. Meaty options for ribs, wings, and turkey are close enough (5071 Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, 770-451-1112; 4920 Roswell Road, 404-255-6368).

10. Cameli’s: The monster slice lives up to its name. The newly spiffed bar and drinks don’t hurt either (699 Ponce de Leon Avenue, 404-249-9020).
