2. Chef Henry’s Louisiana Grill
Incredible Cajun cuisine! The food is always good and the service is wonderful! Chef Henry is a world-class chef who is inventive and brings fresh Cajun cooking to the North Atlanta area.
OOH LA LA! is one of the top dishes served by Chef Henry. It has oysters, shrimp, and crawfish that are flash fried and tossed with Tasso, spinach and roasted garlic in Henry's spicy cream sauce. Served over angel hair pasta, this is worth the drive to Acworth, Georgia.

Tucked into Roswell’s Historic District is Ceviche. The fresh ingredients and authentic Mexican cuisine are cooked to order and priced right. Elsa’s Chicken Enchiladas Verde is very popular with guests. The tender pulled chicken is wrapped in three corn tortillas and smothered in their signature green tomatilla sauce. It is topped with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions, avocado and cotija cheese. The Fish Tacos are also very delicious and filling.

4. Sam and Dave’s BBQ1

Sam and Dave's BBQ1 was named as best BBQ in Atlanta in the Zagat 2008/09 restaurant guide. Since it's mostly takeout, it's usually Dave or Sam waiting on you. Whether you prefer beef or pork, you can’t go wrong. The brisket is exceptionally good and is slow-cooked for hours. BBQ1’s pulled pork is giant shreds of pork that are smoky and tender. Try it on a sandwich with huge slices of Texas toast. If you like sauce on your BBQ meat, try the North Carolina vinegar-style, it’s both sweet and spicy.
