And The Winners Are…

In creating categories and nominees, I used two simple rules. One- I had to dine at the establishment in 2005. Two- I needed to dine at more than one establishment in the category in order to make an award for that category. As you will see from this list, its been a great year. Happy Holidays to everyone and I’ll be back in 2006! So without
further ado, here are the 2005 Best of Steakhead awards…

I've heard really good things about the Piebar. What is the average price on a meal for two?

Steakhead I am definitely putting a few of these spots on my list. After you steered me to Sam and Dave's, I believe every word you say..........

Utopia- one of the great things about Piebar is their fairly simplistic approach to pricing. For instance, wine is $7 glass, and there are many options to choose from. Antipasto is grouped into 3 categories of pricing ranging from $7 to over $10, small plates grouped into 4 groups ranging from $4 to over $10, and the pizzas are all the same price- $8 for half and $14 for a whole. So you can spend as little or as much as you like. I would recommned trying a bunch of things, a basic antipasto, two small plates and 2 1/2 pizzas. That should get you to $40-50 before wine.

L1- I appreciate the faith and let me know of any finds you come across.

Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays to you!

Piebar -easily one of the worst meals I had all year. Terrible, costly pies.

Ick.

Although I totally agree with you on Rathbun's. My favorite restaurant on Planet Earth. =)

I have to disagree with NY Pizza Exchange. Every time I have ordered the Sicilian pizza, it is barely cooked, and the cheese is still cold. I have to vote for Bellas.

I disagree with you on some of your choices read below:

Best ‘All You Can Eat’ Experience under $15- couple of nominations:
Wild Wing lunc buffett, Rusan Sushi Lunch Buffet, Swapna Indian Buffet

Best Restaurant to People Watch- any Waffle House around 4am on a Friday night

Best BBQ- Swallow at the Hallow

Best Pizza- Bellas
Best Sports Bar- I would only say Frankie’s if you want to watch people and not the game. Have yet to find a good one in Atlanta

Best New Restaurant- Piebar (I agree with other poster Piebar over priced and the food not that great)

DW- cant take serious anyone who says RuSan's is good and I won't even dignify your Waffle House suggestion. I prefer to look at good-looking people.
