A must-do experience – Eats is becoming somewhat of a legend.
Excellent food; low prices; kitschy atmosphere. What more can you ask for?
What I don't get is how they can make super-simple things like a sweet potato so darn good. I mean just a plain baked sweet potato, but it's somehow just excellent. Maybe their secret is that they don't mess it up with fancy gunk or cheap ingredients, but just deliver real, wholesome food.
The food is wonderful!
Parking is horrible...
If you have a disable person with you forget going there.
Ok food, might try again – The BBQ chicken was tender and flavorful but the macaroni-n-cheese was a little bland. The cornbread and collards were ok. I brought the turkey lasagna home to my son and he loved it, I wished I had a taste but he ate every morsel. It smelled delicious. The staff is not rude, but I would not call them friendly either. I might go again to try other dishes but I live in Alpharetta, so it is not worth a special trip.
I've loved eats since the day they opened it – Every time I come back to Virginia Highlands I always go to eats three or fout times a week for lunch, BEFORE or AFTER the crowds set in. The crew is always happy and always grill my garlic bread the way I want it. I go for the green pasta with turkey sauce and a side of pesto, or the jerk chicken with greens and beans. Bob the owner is always on the floor bussing tables and there is a great mix of suits, blue collar, and students. I get a kick from the black chicks dressed to the nines. So it's not fancy, but always clean. If you have a hard time getting on to Ponce take a left out of the parking lot and go through the neighborhood to Monroe and go left to head to Boulevard and downtown. Turn left on Ponce from Monroe to head east toward Decatur. They do take plastic, contrary to other reviews and if you need some resturant to make you feel important or to kiss your a*s please go somewhere else away from the neighborhood because we don't want you here. I'd like a place like this in my new town.
one of my most enjoyable dining experiences – My friend dragged me to this place last week and I had one of the most enjoyable dining experiences in my life. Their food selection was really enticing and I had a very hard time choosing which entrée to order. Their friendly wait staff recommended their best-sellers, which was very awesome. It was so flavorful. I really liked it a lot. I was definitely pleased with both the food and the service.
5 STAR FOOD AND SERVICE – HI This restaurant is really the best ever. Start with the minute you walk in the door the workers are so friendly and so willing to walk a first timer through the menu and the set up. We were there on a Sunday and all workers were young guys with great smiles and very upbeat attitudes. The food that Chef Steven Bacon presents is totally over the top. Start with portion size. It is normally super sized. The Taste is total heaven and you can taste that this food is made with this mans heart and soul plus his natural talent. The menu is simple and straight forward and there REALLY is something for everyone of ALL ages. This restaurant is a "foodies" heaven. There are so many choices you can spend forever mixing and matching the combos and never get tired of it. Even the salad dressings are fantastic. I recommend "EATS" to everyone and anyone who wants excellent food, great friendly service and fantastic low prices. An added bonus is that it really is a great family place too. I give "EATS" a New York 5 Star Rating!!!!!!!!!!
BEST PLACE EVER – OMG!!!!! THE FOOD IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
THE PEOPLE ARE GREAT!!!!!!!!!
Don't judge the book by its cover! – Get the chili or pasta! YUM! I am going back for sure!
Eats – Two lines of menu: Pasta line, offering even spinach pasta, with your choice of sauces. Meat & veggie line offering my personal fav of Jjerk chicken, black beans & rice, cornbread. Very wonderful. Of course there is more meats and veggies such as meatloaf, sweet potato, collard greens, mac&cheese. They do have a dessert line but I never eat it because I am too full. If that isn't enough to please your senses the crowd always provide entertainment.
*Funny... this review site would not let me spell Jjerk the regular way because it was offensive so I had to misspell it :)
