Let’s be honest here for a second, sometimes it’s rough to cook dinner on Monday night. As much as I try to grocery shop on the weekends and prepare my dinner menu for the week, stuff happens and take-out is a must. I wanted to share with you my list of my favorite (and guy approved) take-out/delivery options in Atlanta.
Whole Foods Market or The Fresh Market
I love The Fresh Market and Whole Foods Market’s prepared food (aka the hot bar). There are so many options to choose from, and it is so easy to swing by one of these stores on my way home from work. Warning: it’s really easy to pile up your box and have a $20 bill… I suggest sharing with a friend/spouse/significant other or saving half for lunch/dinner the next day. I’m a sucker for Whole Foods Market’s sushi and The Fresh Market’s Waldorf chicken salad.
Slice of Brookhaven
This quaint pizza parlor in my neighborhood of Brookhaven is one of my new favorite locations. When you first see the building, you may want to run away. Slice of Brookhaven is literally in a shed, but do not fear- the food is delicious and worth stopping in for! They were also one of the only restaurants open during Atlanta’s Snowpocalypse a few months ago.. I may or may not have survived on their pizza and beer that week. You can swing by and pick up a pizza or order delivery.
Willy’s Mexicana Grill
If you are a fan of Moe’s Southwest Grill, you will absolutely LOVE Willy’s Mexicana Grill. Located only in the state of Georgia, Willy’s has been a favorite take-out dinner of mine since early high school days (aka for many years). Their ingredients are fresh and healthier than other mexican take-out options. Willy’s queso is my favorite queso in Atlanta.
Momma Goldberg’s Deli
The moment I discovered Momma Goldberg’s was opening in Midtown, I began counting down the days! Momma G’s opened in Auburn, AL and quickly grew to several restaurants around Alabama. In college, I survived off of their Turkey Delite sandwich and Momma’s Nachos #sorryimnotsorry. If you haven’t experienced Momma G’s yet, YOU MUST! The new Midtown location (the ONLY one in Atlanta by the way) is located off 12th street, and best of all (besides a basket of nachos) is free parking!
If you are looking for a fancier tex-mex take-out option, I highly suggest you try Verde Taqueria. Verde is usually packed on the weekends, so take-out on a Friday night is a great option (minus the fact that you cannot get margaritas to go). I recommend the buffalo chicken quesadilla and the grilled fish taco. The tacos are on the smaller side, so I recommend ordering two or three!
Located in Dunwoody, Gyro Gyro is a wonderful option if you are craving Greek food! Their service has outstanding quality with a fast delivery time. They can usually have your order ready within 5-10 minutes. The traditional lamb gyro wrap is my favorite!
Newk’s Eatery is another favorite restaurant of mine that I have been a loyal customer of since college. Newk’s has it all- soups, salads, pizza, sandwiches, mac & cheese, etc.! I, on the reg, crave their corn and crab chowder and Newk’s Q sandwich. They now offer a 600 calorie menu that I cannot wait to try out!
