7. Ate Track

Serving American (New)
“This place is absolutely fantastic!! Outside of South Carolina, this place has some of the best grits I’ve come across, locally grown and harvested in GA. I had the grilled garlic chicken aioli, garlic cheese grits and grilled asparagus, and everything was matched perfectly and well balanced with subtle flavors. The food is definitely a five star across the board, you cannot wait to get back to joint! It’s kinda small, but has plenty to look at inside. I also tried a sampling of the shrimp and grits, which is a fierce competition with what I ordered. If you’re in Cartersville, y’all need, need to go here!” -Jeff from Summerville

8. Krab Kween

Serving Seafood

“Call them or check out their Facebook for current location. Fried shrimp basket was great, about 10 nice size shrimp. Fried fish was very good too, your choice of tilapia, whiting, or catfish. Star had to be the low country boil sampler, with crab legs, sausage, corn, potatoes, shrimp and garlic hard boiled egg- almost enough for two. Mother was cooking, daughter was ringing up the orders, very nice and polite. Show them some love and go visit them, you won’t be disappointed!” -David from Kennesaw

9. Zen Ramen & Sushi Burrito

Serving Ramen and Sushi

“We were skeptical but completely surprised at how good this place was! Sushi burritos, ramen, poke bowls, boba teas and edamame- we were not disappointed with a single item. Wish I could have the dragonfly thai tea every morning for breakfast, it was delicious.” -Jessica from Marietta

10. Maine Street Coastal Cuisine

Serving Seafood and Sandwiches

“First time here.  Service was outstanding. Restaurant is following CoVid 19 guidelines to a T. The food was some of the best we have had in a long time. My husband who does not care for seafood had the fish and chips and just raved about his meal the entire time he ate it.  I had the tomato linguine with shrimp. It was soooo good you could taste the fresh ingredients in it. Taking home dessert the orange creamsicle cake, and we NEVER order dessert that is how good this place is. We will return!” -Maggie from Dallas
