Flip Burger's New Menu


Flip Burger's New Menu

Flip Burger unveiled its new menu created by Chef Christian Norton this week, showcasing several exciting new burgers and dishes including a Kobe Burger topped with an egg, Caprese Burger, Pork Belly Burger, Butterfish sandwich, Vietnamese Chicken Wings, and Pork Belly served with Brussels Sprouts Kimchi. 

Everything was delicious! The cocktails are also excellent and feature dry ice. Flip Burger is famous for their thick milkshakes, too. We saw a S'mores Milkshake with marshmallows which were toasted with a blowtorch. Flip Burger remains on the cutting edge of burger cuisine, and we will definitely be back. Highly recommended!

Righteous Que BBQ Restaurant Review - Marietta, GA


Righteous Que BBQ Restaurant Review - Marietta, GA

1050 E Piedmont Rd, Marietta, GA 30062
(678) 221-4783

I tried a new BBQ joint today with my family called Righteous Que. I came away impressed with this small restaurant in suburban Atlanta.


What did you order? How was your food?

We ordered Brisket and Greens. Brisket comes lean or fatty. We chose lean. We also had a kids' meal Hot Dog with a side of Mac & Cheese. Drinks were canned Coca-Cola and Lemonade. The food was well-seasoned and flavorful. The Mac & Cheese was outstanding. Brisket comes in large slabs of meat which was a nice touch.


Describe your impressions of the service. Was anything exceptionally good (or bad) about the quality of service you received? 

Three very affable and knowledgeable young men staffed the restaurant. They told me the establishment has been there three years.


What do you think of the décor and atmosphere? 

Modern casual, very simple. Perfect atmosphere for a small BBQ joint.



Do you consider this a good value for the money you spent? If no, why not? 

Yes, reasonable prices and plenty of food for the money.


This restaurant is best for... 

Casual lunches and dining, family meals, take-out.



Final Review

Atlanta Foodies gives Righteous Que 5 peaches for authentic, delicious BBQ right next door.

Jinya Ramen Bar Review - Atlanta / Sandy Springs



JINYA Atlanta ~ Sandy Springs
TEL : 404-600-6974
5975 Roswell Road, Suite B217
Sandy Springs, Georgia 30328

My foodie friend Alma and I tried Jinya with her friend Flor the other day. Alma covered the bill. I'll have to treat her next time. Here is my review!

What did you order? How was your food?

I ordered Chicken Won Ton Ramen, and Alma ordered the Spicy Chicken Ramen. I got a Pork Chashu Bowl on the side, and Alma got Pork Gyoza. We both had side salads. Flor had a Pork Chashu Bowl. We got Green Tea Mochi for dessert.

I have never tried a "real" ramen bowl before. I've only had Maruchan or Nissin in the past. I remember loving my chicken ramen cup at the ice skating rink when I was a skater. Ramen is delicious - salty and savory, especially when you are cold. Jinya Ramen was a delightful new experience for me. The broth was flavorful, the noodles cooked perfectly, and the wontons delicious. The scallions and spices were just right. We all adored the pork chashu, gyoza, and the dessert mochi!

Describe your impressions of the service. Was anything exceptionally good (or bad) about the quality of service you received? 

Young, super-friendly, helpful and professional waiters.

What do you think of the décor and atmosphere? 

Modern, causal, simple and beautiful like Japanese style. The restaurant was very busy. There was a line, but we were helped promptly and seated. We sat outside, and it was windy and chilly, but the ramen warmed us up.


Do you consider this a good value for the money you spent? If no, why not? 

I don't know, ask my friend Alma! She paid. I'm just kidding, it is very reasonable for such tasty food.

This restaurant is best for... 

Business Lunches, Casual Dining, Healthy Fare


Final Review

Atlanta Foodies gives Jinya Ramen 5 peaches for giving us a delicious, authentic, Japanese Ramen experience in the south. Thank you, Jinya! We'll be back soon!
