Damn, I'm about to eat my friggin arm. There is this Brazilian steakhouse that opened in Atlanta (From the matches they have some in Texas also) called Foga da Chow.
Man, let me tell you. They slow roast big sides of beef. All cuts. You get a coin to put on your table, and when you want them to stop shaving beef on to your plate you flip the coin over to red. Need more? Just flip it back to green. It never ends. Prime Rib, Top Sirloin, Ribeye, Fillet Minjon, lamb, chicken, on and on.
I'll airborne you a fried peach pie too. That sounds good El Negro. At Manuel Tavern they have a peppercorn chicken burger. They ground up chicken breastm mix peppercorns into the patty and grill it. Heaven!!!!
Pearl Jam must mean bacon & cheese in Prague.
I've heard that in Tennessee they make a deep fried burger! Damn, I bet that is good. Varsity burgers are pretty damn good. It's the worlds largest drive-in burger joint. The onion rings are so greasy that you can place them on the city of Atlanta white pages, and within 5 minutes see through the entire phone book!
Damn, I sure do love burgers. Especially with bacon. If you are in the Atlanta area, I would recomend the following burgers:
1. Wings and Witches
2. The Vortex (Bacon & Gouda!)
3. Highland Pub
4. Frontpage News
6. Highland Tap
7. The Varsity (Greasy and Cheap!)
8. Manuel's Tavern
