Fodor's Expert Review Home grown

$ Sweet Auburn, the Old Fourth Ward, and East Atlanta American

Southern comfort food at its finest can be found at this bright, old-school diner. Cheese grits with a good cheddar bite, fluffy biscuits that can be stuffed with anything from sausage and gravy to perfectly fried chicken, and hunks of made-from-scratch cake are just a few of the reasons locals flock to Home grown. Before you leave, browse the in-house thrift store—an appropriate backdrop to the eclectic atmosphere and crowd at this restaurant.

Arrive before 11 for the shortest wait, or grab a seat at the counter.
