Atlanta Eats, a weekly 30-minute TV show hosted by Steak Shapiro, launched last October on CBS Atlanta and Peachtree TV. The show is currently in its second season and has featured dozens of great restaurants in and around Atlanta.
I recently discovered that past segments can be found on the Atlanta Eats You Tube channel. If you’re in the mood for BBQ, check out these Georgia BBQ joints that have been featured:
Swallow at the Hollow
Bone Lick BBQ
Fatt Matt’s Rib Shack
Williamson Bros. (Started in Alabama)
Atlanta Eats airs every Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. on PeachtreeTV and Noon on CBS Atlanta. For more information, visit www.atlantaeats.com
Bone Lick BBQ is celebrating Independence Day with live music, a whole hog roast, a Twinkie eating competition, kiddie pools and more starting at 12 p.m. on July 4th atop the Apex building. Stick around at night for 360-degree views of some of Atlanta’s best fireworks displays.
“How much for just one rib?” That’s the name of one of the bar snacks available at Bone Lick BBQ which opens on Tuesday, August 14 in the retail shops at Apex West Midtown. Bone Lick BBQ is a spin off of P’cheen International Bistro and Pub’s popular weekly offering – Mike’s Monday Night Bone Lick BBQ – featuring pitmaster and chef Mike LaSage’s award-winning barbecue.
The menu offers a huge variety of bar snacks, sandwiches and entrees ranging from $3 starters to $25 for a whole rack of ribs with Texas toast and a side. Some of the menu highlights include the Smoke ‘em if Ya Got ‘em – 48-hour marinated wings, slow smoked naked or double dipped; The Legendary Pulled Pork Sammy; The Austin-tacious chopped brisket sandwich; and a selection of entrees that can be combined in traditional meat and two, three, four and even five samplers are also available.
If you enjoy an adult beverage as much as I do, Bone Lick BBQ will have only Georgia beers on tap along with a large American craft brew selection in bottles showcasing as many local brands as possible. Local wine, small batch American whiskeys, and a moonshine selection inspired by P’cheen will also be offered.
Bone Lick BBQ joins a couple other restaurant in the development including The Corner Tavern and Slice at 1133 Huff Road at Apex West Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia. Bone Lick BBQ will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday at 11 a.m. The kitchen will close for dinner nightly at 11 p.m. Parking is available on the street and in a large parking deck accessible by an entrance located between Slice and Bone Lick BBQ.
