If you go on a Sunday, I recommend getting there around 1:30p as the parking lot can fill up pretty quickly. I got there about that time, but when I left (3:45ish), I noticed a lot of people circling the lot. I've never tried alligator so decided that this would be the place to have a taste. It was very good. Seasoned well and the dipping sauce was delicious. Someone suggested that I get the side dish of dirty rice. Let me just say that the rice was excellent, but I had no idea how HUGE the sides were. Three people could've easily eaten it. I took the rice to go and had it the following evening (it reheated and tasted just as good) and I still could not finish it. I had an entree. It was grouper stuffed with crabmeat, cheese andouille sausage grits and spinach smothered in a lemon butter sauce. It had a good taste to it. The cheese & andouille sausage grits were AMAZING and added to the dish well. The grouper was well seasoned and the crab meat was an added extra. Since it was just me dining, I sat at the bar. The bar keeps were friendly and even let me sample an oyster on the half shell. I've never had raw oysters, nor had the inclination to try them. But I did try them here. They are shucked fresh right at the bar and I must say it was pretty good. I probably won't have oysters again anytime soon, but it was good. Not sandy and it didn't have a "pond" taste to it. Very good. When and if I return to Atlanta, this will be on my to do list again. It's only about 7 miles from downtown Atlanta, if that. This was one of the highlights of my vacation.
