Buckhead -where to eat

I am going to be in Buckhead in a few weeks and my 17 year old daughter and Bf want to go somewhere good to eat- medium price range- they eat pretty much anything- can you name some places that are popular right now- and if we can make a reservation-don't want to sit around waiting on a table forever-thanks

  1. Throw a rock in any will hit a good restaurant. In Buckhead, you will never be more than two blocks from good food.

      thanks- i guess I was wanting some recommendations- plan to try Paul's or Georgia Grille

    2. My guess is that a 17 y/o might like the Buckhead Diner. You will too.

      1. Buckhead Diner is very good. There is Anis, very good. For great cuban Coco Loco.
        Houston's is a chain, but I do love everything on the menu.

          I agree Houston's is a good choice for mid price $12 - $25 entrees - be sure to get the traditional salad - with most entrees it's discounted a bit - excellent blue cheese dressing. 4 locations, 3 near Buckhead - Lenox location has valet parking which I avoid - Peachtree Rd or West Paces have easy parking - look here:
          But go early around 6PM or before to avoid waiting. I don't know if they take reservations. Reviews here:

            Should have added you can turn Houstons "mid-price" into much higher price by ordering some of some entrees and add-ons like starters, soup, salad, drink, extra veggie, dessert . Don't know about you, but 17 yo's won't be ordering beer/wine/etc. When I don't get a beer I just order water - I go for the food. The Houston's web site (above) has location maps and menus so check them out.

        2. I'd consider Nava. I took some younger people there last year and they loved it. Nava will take a reservation, Buckhead Diner will only take "priority seating". Food is great at both.

            I've made the heavenly white chocolate banana cream pie (recipe made available via Southern Living) that the Buckhead Diner made famous. One day I plan to eat there. Thanks for the link.
