Best BBQ chicken in the South!
This has, hands down, the best, crispiest skin, barbeque chicken in the world, with your choice of 3-4 sauces, but the original is the best. I eat there mostly at lunch for takeaway, and almost always get the chicken plate, for about $8, which is 1/2 a bird roasted nice on the pit with your choice of sauce on the side, and 2 sides---I always get the Brunswick Stew, and the BBQ beans, but the slaw and the onion rings are pretty good, too. If Joy is there you probably will get a hug---don't you take advantage of her, or I will come and get you! Anyways she got engaged not too long ago, so......
Great BBQ and great atmosphere----recommended highly. chicken plate with stew and beans, original.
Local family Italian fare
A good but not fancy place for a family Italian meal, or a date night. There are coupons available in the local papers and they also have an early bird special dinner price. Full bar and no TV's----kid friendly and not too expensive.
Veal, pastas, salads, sausages and more.....
Farseek - Marietta
This crazy landmark is the most prominent feature in Marietta, as you will soon discover. People tend to give directions from it to anywhere in town, or even anywhere in the area, as in "Yeah that's about ten miles down from the big chicken, first road past the highway, down about another 20 miles on the left at the end of a winding dirt road... can't miss it." In reality it is right on one of the busiest intersections in Marietta, but not everything else given in reference to it is even close.
Luckily this photo is not animated, since the chicken's eye spins around as its beak opens and shuts. Looking at it for even more than a few seconds will do your head in, which could account for quite a few things about the town, including the author's stories.
