Its no secret that Gabe and I love good grub, so our last two dates were to test out some local spots. We share a mutual obsession with guacamole. The best we ever had was on our honeymoon in Cabo where they had giant plates full for $5.00. Since being back in Atlanta, we have been testing guacamole at various Mexican restaurants to find the best guac. We still have a few places to check out, but Tin Lizzy's is on the top of our list so far. Served in a tin with seasoned crispy chips, their guacamole had just the right kick.....killer. Not to mention the rest of the food served was pretty fantastic. This is a well known popular place to go in the Buckhead/Atlanta area, so there is always a wait. Gabe and I managed to get beautiful weather and minimal wait for back patio seating on a Saturday night. A miracle.

Our next goal was to try out a local hole in the wall that was rumored to have amazing gyros. Well folks, lets just say I was not ashamed of the sauce dribbling down my chin as I gobbled the thing down in 5. Amazingness. You would never know by looking at this joint (which is practically hidden next to a Shell gas station) that it was a pretty nice pace inside with friendly Greek waitors and the best darn gyro you can probably get in the south.
I tell you its the local mom and pop places that turn out to be the best!
Experienced any in your area lately?
