Maepole is the Southern version of those BYO salad and grain bowl chains. But this Summerhill spot adds topping options like collards, hoppin' john, and mac and cheese to appeal to our Georgia taste buds. And we thank them for their service—especially since we can get a quick, filling meal that won't slow us down the way fast food usually does. Moving down the assembly line selecting toppings and protein makes us feel like our childhood school cafeteria got a serious upgrade, and we aren’t complaining. The natural light cascading into the casual dining area is perfect when we need a break from staring at a screen midday, but it’s rare to find many people eating there so grab-and-go is the move.
