1 Day Left in Atlanta (I'm Already Here), Need Stellar Cheap Eats

Hi, I appreciate everyone's expediency on this one. I'm in Marietta, GA and plan to spend the next day doing some serious Southern-style chowhounding. I want cheap, local food, preferring shacks, diners and dives over restaurants proper. Fried chicken livers are a favorite. Please share your recommendations, post haste, for places with good eats and a ton of atmosphere. And happy holidays!

      Try Ria's Bluebird Cafe in Grant Park. Great breakfast and lunch fare; not really a dive per se but amazing food, well-priced, good service, and a great location across from Oakland Cemetery (the oldest in town).
