Mellow Mushroom: Keep on Shrooming
This chain of restaurants have spread through the South East. They do excellent pizzas at good prices and also have great bars. We've been in 4 now I think: Columbia SC, Charleston SC, Savannah and Athens. In Columbia we walked in on a Buck a Pint night. No reason to go anywhere else.
Very popular with students surprisingly. And me.
Hope they've spread out West when we go there next year.
Favorite Dish: The Calzone was enormous

Porterhouse Grill: Gorgeous Steak
We've eaten twice now, both times we've been to Athens. I believe I called the steak the first time, the best I'd ever had. The second wasn't bad either. I wish I could eat there tonight.
Favorite Dish: The Porterhouse Steak
Five Star Day Cafe: My Favorite Resturaunt
Five Star is my favorite resturaunt for many reasons.
First off, I love the food. It can best be described as 'gourmet southern'. It is southern with a twist. Basically they take southern standards and make them a little crazy and a little different.
Favorite Dish: Hmmm....Meatloaf.
Wow, they take this creation and make it incredible!

Their cakes are great too.
