    I can't say that Atlanta has a "signature dish", but here's a thread on cheap eats ideas that might help for your budget: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/757389

    I guess trying a typical meat & three would be a good, typical experience, but that's not Atlanta-specific, just Southern.

      Try Ann's Snack Bar for a burger (1615 Memorial Dr).
      And Carver's Country Kitchen...can't get that anywhere else.

        The Varsity serves slaw dogs - Atlanta is the only city I've visited that serves cole slaw on hot dogs. Should fit your budget too.
