38 "Casual Weeknight Dinner" restaurants in Atlanta.
A good casual weeknight dinner spot is hard to find. It’s a step above a make-your-own bowl place, but not somewhere you’ll need a reservation. It shouldn’t be too expensive, you should be able to talk instead of shout, and your dinner shouldn’t take more than an hour. These spots do it all.
Terra Terroir might be in a strip mall, but once you get a glass of wine and sit on the back patio, you’d never know.
Head to Woods Chapel BBQ, a huge restaurant in Summer Hill, for big platters of smoked meats, picnic tables, and lawn games.
This comic book-themed pizza spot in Little Five Points is a great place to share a pie with friends or to bring the family.
Atkins Park in Virginia Highlands is one of the oldest bars in Atlanta, and it’s great for a beer and a burger.
Usually when food and airplanes mix you’re left disappointed, but Downwind is right next to the Dekalb Airport and serves great pub classics.
Rising Son, Avondale Estates’ restaurant, serves dishes made with seasonal produce from local farms in a fun and quirky space.
With a long menu of Chinese and Thai dishes, Little Bangkok is always an easy spot to bring a group for a casual weeknight dinner in Cheshire Bridge.
The rooftop at Six Feet Under in West Midtown is one of the best places to eat some seafood and drink a few beers.
Upbeet in West Midtown is a bright space serving healthy options like bowls, smoothies, and toasts.
El Super Pan's location in the Battery has an expanded menu and more seating options than their PCM stall, but you'll still find the Cuban sandwich.
Antico Pizza in the Battery only has pizza and calzones on its menu, and you'll be happiest sitting at one of the communal tables eating both.
There are few things we like more than showing up to Gus's downtown with a big group and ordering the 20 piece family meal with a bunch of sides.
We’d go to The Porter just for the Belgian fries, but they also have a long list of beers and lots of great vegetarian options too.
Head to Papi’s Midtown location for some great Cuban food and quick service.
Cypress is one of the only spots in Midtown with an outdoor area, so come for some sun and definitely their burger.
