Busy Bee Cafe: "Best Southern Homestyle Restaurant" Atlanta Restaurant Tip by TexasDave

Atlanta Restaurants: 347 reviews and 337 photos


Serving Southern/Soul food since 1947, this little restaurant is consistently voted 'best of' by local newspapers and magazines. It is predominantly an African-American scene, but everyone is welcome and this is a true down home Atlanta experience.

Oddly, they are open Sunday- Friday, closed on Saturday. It gets very busy at lunch time all six days, so expect somewhat of a wait.

Favorite Dish: Fried Chicken, followed by pork chops.
