OK Cafe in Atlanta, Georgia

Whenever I’m in Atlanta, I like to eat at least one meal with Billy (owner of NFA Burger) and my best bud in the food world, Droolius (we go way back). I suggest we grab breakfast at OK Cafe on the morning of my book signing at Big Sky Buckhead. Billy was also doing a burger popup.

I like this chair…a lot!

Unfortunately, or fortunately for my wife Marcela (it depends on how you look at it), there will be a lot of burger talk.

OK Cafe Money Tree

It had been over ten years since my last visit to the OK Cafe. There are two things that I was looking forward to: the giant Money Tree and the crispy bacon.

Marcela and I arrive before my burger bros, so we’ll need some bacon to tide us over until they arrive. It was just as crispy and tasty as I had remembered it.

Our waitress suggested the fried cheese grits, which was another winner. You’ll brighten up your life with an order of these fellas.

Burger Talk with Burger Buddies

By the time Billy and Droolius arrive, I’ve decided. The Pimento Cheeseburger will find a permanent home inside of my stomach. Marcela orders a breakfast platter while Droolius gets some pancakes and bacon.

Billy and I agree to split the Pimento Cheeseburger, but Droolius does sneak a bite. It’s a solid burger, but it couldn’t compete with the company I had.

We always have a great time when we get together, and OK Cafe was the right spot for our meating.
