My husband and I want to explore more of the ethnic food restaurants in the Buford Highway area, but we aren't sure where to start. I'd be interested in knowing what are some of the excellent choices in the area.

Here are three of my favorites so far -

New Orleans style seafood - Crawfish Shack - 4337 Buford Highway
Dim Sum - China Delight - 2390 Chamblee Tucker Road
Lebanese - Lawrence's Cafe - 2888 Buford Highway

    Lots of reviews and food photos here - http://blissfulglutton.com/category/n...

    maybe too many but you can bookmark/save it and check it at your leisure. Lots of older articles. You could also search by cuisine instead of neighborhood. Ethnic searches will often take you to Buford Hwy., especially Asian and Mexican.

      Also, El Rey Del Tacos- I love their fish tacos, and the sauces they bring to the table. Be prepared that it's very loud.

        Wan Lai is excellent Cantonese. The casseroles and the 3 kind dumpling soup are fantastic. The beef chow fun dry style is a favorite comfort food.

        It's BYOB, just so you know.

              I recommend Rincon Latino for pupusas and other Salvadorean food.
