Manly Restaurants – March Madness

Every Friday, Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series I like to call Foodie Friday.

Let’s get ready to rumble! March Madness is approaching so how about a tournament-style restaurant review contest? I’ll pit restaurants in head-to-head match ups to see who moves on. Don’t expect a full review, but do expect a straight up comparison. The theme… manly food! Here’s how it will shape up and how you can help.

I expect to have a field of 16 restaurants. Sorry, 64 isn’t realistic. Initially the field will be divided into four groups; barbecue, pub food, burgers and pizza. That’s pretty much my four main food groups, right? Each group will have four restaurants seeded based on Urban Spoon rating. A post will be dedicated to each group, pitting restaurants against each other to see who advances in the bracket. At the end, the winners of each bracket will square off for the title of Most Manly Restaurant in Alpharetta.

How can you help? Next week will be our selection show. I need my readers’ help selecting four restaurants in each group. They should all be located roughly in my geographic area; Alpharetta, Milton, Johns Creek and south Forsyth. I know, there are tons of great eats in Roswell, I just don’t get down that way much. Sometimes I even don’t hit the boundaries of my own area (for example, I almost never get over to Crabapple).

We all have personal favorites in each category, so I want to hear about yours. And being a March Madness theme, I’d like to have a few Cinderella stories thrown in. You never know what’ll happen, right? Let’s go through the categories.


Last summer I published a series of Q reviews. My readers kinda know where I stand on this. But please feel free to suggest something not on this list. The field includes:

  • Slopes
  • Woody’s
  • ‘Cue
  • Smokejack
  • Jim ‘N Nicks
  • Dickey’s
  • Shane’s

Yes, I threw Shane’s in there. Perhaps they are the Cinderella story? I’m sure Duke Smokejack will slaughter them in the opening round.

Pub Food

I’m overall disappointed in this category but we’ll include it. First of all, I’m going to rule out  English/Irish joints and gastropubs. Sorry Tifosi’s.

I expect these joints to make a mean chicken wing, know how to fry up some appetizers and have a decent beer selection. I will rate food here only, not atmosphere, games, number of TVs, nightlife, etc. Some suggestions might be:

  • Miller’s Ale House
  • Taco Mac (various locations)
  • Wild Wing
  • Buffalo’s Wild Wing
  • Montana’s
  • Hudson’s
  • Mulligan’s
  • TJ’s Sports Bar
  • Loco’s Deli
  • Jeffery’s


Everyone has a burger on their menu, but they all can’t make this list. I’m looking for joints where the burger is king on their menu. Here’s the field…

  • Cheeseburger Bobby’s
  • The Spot
  • Scratch Fresh
  • BB’s Best Burgers
  • The Counter
  • Five Guys (various locations)
  • Ted’s Montana Grill
  • Flippin’ Out

I put Flippin’ Out here to make a statement. Had they not closed last month, I’m pretty sure they would have easily won this part of the tournament (and perhaps the whole shebang).


This is a crowded field, I can’t mention them all. I’d like to see pizzerias that crank out some seriously awesome pies. I know my favorites, what are yours?

Here’s the schedule of posts you can expect:

  • Selection Show – Friday March 4
  • Barbecue – Friday March 11
  • Pizza – Friday March 18
  • Burgers – Friday March 18
  • Pubs – Friday March 25
  • Final Four – Friday April 1

So next week I’ll announce the field of 16. I’m sure there will be disappointments. Everyone questions the selection committee, right? Let me know who you think should be included and why. Let the big dance begin!

Alpharetta Bloggers

I love finding new or undiscovered blogs. I continue to think this area is under-served by the blogsphere. That’s slowly starting to change. Today I thought I would highlight a few blogs that fly beneath the radar. I subscribe to the RSS feeds for all of these blogs and I encourage my readers to as well.

Hyper-Local Bloggers

Bacon Wrapped Rob

I love Rob’s new blog for several reasons. The name cracks me up. His food photography is quite good, and it’s difficult to photograph food. Rob is reviewing local restaurants like mad right now. Pay attention or you’re miss a lot! Follow his comments and you might see he and I bantering on local eateries.

New Urban Roswell

This blog has been around for years, it’s just new to me. I often disagree with blogger Michael Hadden. Well let’s be honest… I disagree with nearly everything he writes. That certainly doesn’t stop me from reading and respecting his opinion. He’s well versed on suburban planning. If you’re looking to chew the fat on issues like mixed-use developments, Michael is your man.

Atlanta Real Estate – Andrea Cueny

Realtors make awesome local bloggers. I recently discovered Andrea’s blog and I like what I see. She’s started a weekly blog roundup post that highlights a few recent posts from local bloggers. Posts like this are a tradition in blogging and I regret not doing it myself.

New Milton High School Blog

I’ve written about this blog before. I mention it again because school redistricting and naming are about to become hot issues. Pay attention to this blog and it’s very focused issue.

Travis Allen

I hope I’m not jumping the gun on this one. I met Milton resident Travis Allen after I started blogging. He was recently selected to chair Milton’s new Historic Preservation Commission. Travis would make a terrific hyper-local blogger, something he’s considering. Travis, consider this another encouragement on my part!

Bloggers Who Are Local

Not exactly local-themed blogs, these are blogs written by folks in our neck of the woods. I’ll mention a few new blogs of significance.

Abraham Chronicles

I’ve subscribed to Dustin Valencia’s family blog for over a year now. Abraham Chronicles is his newest creation. I’d call it a faith blog, framed against his life as a father. It seems to be really taking off. Recently his wife has started guest posting. With Jon Acuff moving away, I think Dustin could become one of Alpharetta’s preeminent faith bloggers.

Chris Rouse

While we’re on the topic of faith bloggers… Chris is a young man in the sound and visual worship business. He covers a lot in his blog, including technology, worship and photography. His recent pics from church mission projects are amazing.

Sundown and Payday

I may have saved the best for last. John Pruett is a professional counselor who recently started this blog. He’s an exceptional writer. A lot of his early writing dealt with the elder care issues he’s working through with his parents. It is humorous and at times poignant. I can appreciate the inspiration for the blog’s name. If you asked his father if he needed anything, the answer would be “Sundown and Payday.” Amen to that!

The Taco Stand – Alpharetta

Every Friday, Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series I like to call Foodie Friday.

Let’s talk college dive bars for a moment. No, I’m not a UGA grad. I went to Clemson and we had some killer college joints. I’m a big fan of this genre of eatery. Doesn’t matter really which college town you’re talking about, they all have character that is hard to capture.

However, God forbid if someone attempted to franchise one of my favorite college dive bars and plop a location down in the burbs. I’m sure I’d be critical of every aspect of the new location. There are probably many UGA grads who cringe at the thought of The Taco Stand being here. Then again, they’ve been in franchise mode for a few years now, with some locations crashing and burning. Will this Alpharetta location make it?

Strike one for The Taco Stand is location. They are on the corner of Mansell and the Old Alabama Connector. This spot has ruined a few restaurants over the years. I don’t get down this way much at all. Unless you happen to work on east Mansell, I doubt it is convenient to you either. It also isn’t easily seen from the road.

However, the layout inside is pretty cool. The bar is separated from the rest of the restaurant, almost like at Wild Wing on Windward. It helps to keep any rowdy boozers away from the families next door (not that I saw any rowdy types on my visit, but who knows). The decor is that of a UGA sportsbar. Shocker, right?

The menu sounds similar to what I’ve read about the original Athens location. You’ll find typical bar favorites like wings (baked and fried) and burgers but also some Americanized Mexican grub like tacos and burritos. Some of their food is locally sourced including the Angus hamburger meat. Otherwise it is a very simple menu, almost too much so. Nothing jumped out saying “try me!” The prices are very affordable for these parts except for the kids meals. At $4 a pop, they are expensive relative to the cheaper adult meals.

I’m not going to talk too much about my visit last week. They clearly have a lot of new restaurant jitters to work through. The front of the house executed well on my visit but the kitchen was way off. I’m giving them a pass on any additional criticism at this point considering how new they are. Nevertheless, I’d give them a few more weeks or months to get things ironed out.

The Taco Stand is located at 10595 Old Alabama Road Connector behind Spa Sydell.

New/Closed Restaurants – February 2011

Every Friday, Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series I like to call Foodie Friday.

We’ve lost two outstanding restaurants recently. I hate to see them go and wish my best to those who might be out of a job. Yet at the same time there are some interesting new restaurants in the works for Alpharetta.

Flippin’ Out – Closed

Easily my favorite hamburger in the area. Flippin Out was the only joint cooking burgers on wood/charcoal and they were amazing. But this joint faced two serious problems. First, their location sucked. They were not visible from State Bridge or Jones Bridge even though they were close to the intersection. Second, service was hit or miss.

I exchanged a few emails with one of the former owners/managers. He suggested that this concept could return if they find better real estate. But in the meantime, they plan to open…

Gorilla Burrito – Johns Creek

Yep. I thought he was kidding at first. Close north Fulton’s best burger joint and open a burrito place? That’s the plan. And from what I’m told it won’t take them long to get this off the ground. Expect it to open in March.

Spice Brick Oven Kitchen – North Point

This one is in the very early stages. I don’t know much about them, except that they have their eye on the old Joe’s Crab Shack location on the corner of Haynes Bridge and North Point.

River Tavern of Milton – Closed?

The restaurant appears to be closed. The windows and doors are covered up with no signs of life. It is possible that renovations are in the works, but I doubt it. I think this gastropub is a goner.

Legends Deli and Cafe – McGinnis Ferry

They are building out in the old Bada Bing Wings location on McGinnis Ferry. Based on their facebook page, it seems they are nearing completion and should be open soon. Expect deli sandwiches, burgers, dogs, etc.

Shiraz Café – McGinnis Ferry

Just down McGinnis Ferry from Legends will be Shiraz Cafe. They are building in a small stand-alone restaurant near Publix. It’s a terrible location really, hidden from the road. I don’t know much more about this place. There was the similarly named Shiraz Persian Cuisine not far from here down Jones Bridge that closed a while back. Not sure if this place is related.

Mango’s Cuban Cuisine – Closed

Thanks to Chris Rouse for pointing this one out to me. I was never impressed with Mango’s. Pretty sad that they couldn’t stand out in the culinary wasteland that is North Point. Adios.

Tifosi Gastropub – Alpharetta

It’s gonna be hard to shake the KFC vibe. The guys behind Tifosi knew this going into their new concept, which they built within Alpharetta’s abandoned KCF on South Main. I exchanged a few emails with the owners during their buildout way back in November and was assured the space would look nothing like its former self. For the most part they were right, although it would have been kind of funny to leave the life-sized Colonel Sanders statue. (yes, I’m ashamed to admit I dined at this KFC once or twice)

Tifosi Gastropub opened a little less than two weeks ago. They’ve done remarkable work inside this small space. The brickwork on the walls is beautiful and is framed by wood floors below and exposed rafters. I never knew an old fastfood joint could look so cool. The bar, near where the drive thru window used to be, is warm and inviting with a decent beer selection. Unfortunately they didn’t do much with the outside of the building, something they should consider in the future.

The menu is typical for gastropubs in the burbs but with a touch of Italian influence. You’ll find stuff like braised short ribs, fried mac and cheese, risotto fritters, ravioli (which I almost picked) and an array of sandwiches. Unfortunately most of the menu is priced outside of my typical lunch range, with the exception of sandwiches and salads. If you’re on an expense account or entertaining clients then no problemo.

My wife and I split two sandwiches. The first was the rosso chicken sandwich which was suggested by our waitress. The chicken breast was tender and juicy and brought a little bit of a spice kick. The thyme aioli cut the spice and the ciabatta was perfect. I might put this sammich in the same league as Wildflour. Tifosi’s side items stole the show. Parmesan risotto… amazing. The rice was cooked a perfect al dente and was wonderfully creamy. I could eat buckets of the stuff. Even the garlic mashed tatters were off the hook.

New restaurant jitters were something I didn’t observe at Tifosi for the most part. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The kitchen missed execution on one sandwich which I didn’t bring up… but the manager took notice of it. He took care of it without any prompting whatsoever. All in all, it was very professional, especially for a joint opened for all of eight days.

How does Tifosi’s stack up? It’s a little too early to tell. I’d rank them ahead of River Tavern in Milton and behind Kozmo’s. They have the potential to rival Kozmo’s if they can be creative with the menu and execute. However I don’t think they will ever match the sexy atmosphere at Kozmo’s. In the meantime, I think Tifosi will be a hit; a welcomed addition to Alpharetta’s struggling downtown scene. It won’t be long before people know them as something other than “that new place where KFC used to be.”

Tifosi Gastropub is located… (where KFC used to be) at 102 South Main Street near downtown Alpharetta.

Disclosure: After I wrote this review I received a free tasting from Erwoods, Tifosi’s sister restaurant.

Alpharetta Jobs – February 2011

Around the middle of each month I survey the career websites of Alpharetta’s largest employers. I count the number of openings and tally them up here, trending the numbers month to month.

Brisk hiring continues among Alpharetta’s largest employers. HP’s numbers are down slightly yet most of their openings have been posted in the last month. I believe their numbers will continue to trend at about a hundred openings. McKesson has added openings, the most I’ve seen on Marconi Drive in over a year. Yet the biggest gains are at Alpharetta’s telecom companies. Verizon went from 3 openings in January to 51 this month. I haven’t seen anything in the press about them ramping up operations here. Perhaps an announcement is forthcoming?

I’d love to hear from folks who have resumes out to some of these companies. Are you getting call backs? Interviews?

Restaurant Inspections – February 2011

Every Friday, Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series I like to call Foodie Friday.

Big kudos are due to the Georgia Department of Community Health. They finally have an online application to search for restaurant inspections. Oh, you thought this information had been available for a long time? Not really. In March of last year I wrote about how difficult it was to obtain timely and detailed restaurant inspections. As a blogger I wished to write about restaurants earning poor scores. I now have that ability.

The restaurant inspection system in Georgia isn’t perfect. Is it possible for clean and well-managed restaurants to earn a poor score from time to time? Absolutely. Nevertheless, this is the only system restaurant patrons have to rely on.

Thus I introduce the first of an irregular series I plan to write on local restaurants who score poorly on recent inspections. It is only the joints that score a C or lower that concern me. I will note each of these along with the inspector’s raw (and unedited) notes. I promise to offer no other commentary on the restaurants themselves, letting only the facts speak. I will cover restaurants in Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton and Roswell. At this point in time, Forsyth County is not included in this application.

Restuarant Loyalty Cards

Every Friday, Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series called Foodie Friday.

Today I’m writing to restaurant owners, specifically restaurants that have loyalty programs. Who doesn’t want to encourage and reward your most loyal customers? It’s not exactly a new concept, it just bugs me to see you spending money on junk like this…

These are all the loyalty cards in my wallet today. I probably could have more if I wished. Notice that I have two cards from Qdoba plus a key chain card. Allow me to make an example out of them. Keep in mind that I kinda like Qdoba. I eat there maybe once a month.

On my second to last visit to Qdoba, the manager gave me my first card. He explained that I can earn points of some kind. On certain days I can earn double points. Sounds complicated. I didn’t think much of it and put the card in my wallet. I don’t really have the time to figure out their system and I probably don’t visit often enough to make it worth my effort.

Fast forward to this week when I was there with my wife for lunch. I pulled out my trusty Qdoba card to earn a few more “valuable” points, right? I was told that there was a new card and system. I could simply go online and transfer my points from one to another using the code on the back. Fail!

I suppose Qdoba’s system is a little more high-tech than a stamp or punch card system that restaurants have used for decades. I just cringe to think of the costs involved to implement something like this. I also don’t like these cards taking up space in my wallet; space that I could fill with maxed out credit cards. How can we fix this problem?

Here’s your loyalty program! Yep, the trusty smart phone. Sure, not everyone has one, but if you’re running a restaurant in Alpharetta then most of your customers have smart phones. This is especially true if your customers are cubicle dwellers.

Before I begin let me say that I’m not a social networking expert. I’m just a fella who observes. Here are some programs I think work and cost next to nothing.

Location-Aware Apps

Fourquare, Gowalla, Facebook Places, Yelp, etc. They all give business owners the opportunity to market to customers based on real-time location. In the case of Foursquare, they don’t charge businesses at this point. Yet from what I’ve read it may take forever to get a check-in program created or updated. But once set up, a Foursquare offer can do everything a physical loyalty card can do, and a lot more.

Show Us Your Tweets

Let’s make another example out of a local business. This time it is Element Coffee in Crabapple. I’ve never been to this coffee shop but I follow them on twitter. Check out this promotion:

Funny innuendo aside, I love this promotion. First, it is completely free to pull off make this happen. It only takes a twitter account. Second, when customers take advantage of this, they tell their followers on twitter. I didn’t tell any friends I was at Qdoba using their loyalty program. Third, it gives Element a way to track customers. They can circle back on twitter and count all the retweets or mentions. They could follow-up with customers on twitter to see if they enjoyed their experience. They could also maintain a list of customers on twitter that have used their specials. In short, it provides analytics and a means to communicate directly with customers. It costs absolutely nothing. And you can say “show your tweets” and giggle like a school boy.

Build Your Own App

There’s some price associated with this approach. How about develop your own iPhone or Android app for your store? If you want to cook a complicated points system into your loyalty program while maintaining smart phone coolness, then this is the way to go. You’re gonna have to find a smart phone developer and pay him handsomely. It’s an approach that’s not for the faint at heart, but could rank high on the awesomeness scale if pulled off the right way.

So to all you restaurant owners… understand that I have a loyalty program already in my pocket. It is just sitting there waiting for you to entice me. It’s also a tool I might use to give you free publicity. Use it!

Fathers and Daughters on Valentine’s Day

I don’t often post events to my blog unless there is a point or teachable moment to be shared. This is one of them.

I’m blessed to have a beautiful six year old daughter. She’s into typical girlie stuff like Barbie and Disney princesses. And thankfully she still thinks dad is a cool dude. I don’t take this part for granted because I know her teenaged version will realize how uncool I really am. So I try to take advantage of the time we can spend together today.

I also view this time as a down payment of sorts. Girls that grow up without a strong father figure often seek a replacement later in life. I don’t think I need to go into the potential unpleasant consequences of this. I also see a lot of busy corporate go-getters in the burbs that simply don’t spend much time with their kids/daughters. It all scares me.

That’s why I’m excited to talk about some of the upcoming Daddy/Daughter events for Valentine’s Day. If you have a daughter, please by all means have a date with her this year. If you have a good time then make it a yearly event. She’ll remember it for a long time and hopefully will have an idea of how a gentleman should treat her.

Alpharetta Father/Daughter Valentine Dance

This is a yearly event put on by the Alpharetta Parks and Recreation Department. This year it will be Friday February 11th, 7:00 to 9:00 at the Alpharetta Community Center. If you want to make reservations, you’d better hurry! The event features dancing and desserts to sample. My wife, Robyn Guy, is the photographer at this event. Daddies and Daughters will pose for a portrait so dress to impress! Trust me guys, your wife will enjoy having this. I know I’m biased, but I think this is worth the price of admission all by itself.

If you can’t make the Alpharetta dance, check your daughter’s school or even church. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just dress up and make it fancy!


Girls dig the ballet. Get over your fear of men in tights!

I’m always disappointed when I don’t see father’s taking daughters to ballets like the Nutcracker. Sure, it’s a Christmas event but there are others to consider throughout the year. Keep an eye on the Atlanta Ballet’s schedule for appropriate events. Next weekend they will perform Sleeping Beauty.


Don’t want to drop a ton of money? Take your daughter to the Chic-Fil-A Daddy Daughter Date Night. You’ve got to make reservations for this event, but the restaurants do it up fancy. Otherwise just dress up, buy some flowers and do her favorite restaurant. There’s nothing wrong with McDonalds in a suit and tie.

Number of the Month – Alpharetta Jobs on Twitter

Around the first of the month I publish the number of the month, a random or meaningless bit of local trivia.


The number of Alpharetta jobs advertised on Twitter in the trailing 24 hours.
