4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Cowtippers is a good choice for comfortable lunch or dinner. It has been an Atlanta Institution for the Gay Community Diners for many years, but is also enjoyed by everyone. Food is simple and well prepared. Sandwiches, salads and light dishes.

The atmosphere is very relaxed. Perhaps a mix of sports bar and bbq place feel. The server (Dean) was excellent. Everyone is very fast and professional. A daily special is offered and Dean offered some food tips based on what we were in the mood for. Went around 2pm on a Sunday and ample parking as well as seating was... More

I was hooked on my first visit about 17 years ago. Rarely has it let me down. The burgers are some of the best, accompanied by awesome fries. We usually start withe the white queso, follow that with the Guacamole BJ burgers and fries (with mayo). If we plan ahead and split a burger, scrumptious cake follows, ideally the rainbow... More

We love this place and always stop by when we're in town. Classic burgers and amazing loaded mashed potatoes. Our waiter was very attentive and made us feel right at home. There seems to be a lot of locals who come here. A very eclectic crowd! See you next time we're in town!

After a long day in Atlanta we found Cowtippers by accident, just driving by. After a long hot day, we just wanted a drink (or two) and a good meal. I had a great sirloin and my wife really enjoyed her fried catfish special. We really didn't know anything about the restaurant, including the fact that it was a gay... More

Good food, good service, and good prices - can't ask for much more than that. Atmosphere was casual, nice paneling, and we were able to get a nice table.

1) Great service. 2) Good food. 3) The price is right. What else can you ask for? This is a go-to location when I'm in Atlanta. It's just a fun place with good, solid food. There's a "Hawaiian luau steak" (teriyaki glaze) that I get every time I'm there. This place is right on Piedmont near Ansley and Monroe, so... More
