The OK Cafe opened its doors July 8, 1987 and so great was the longing for a true southern restaurant that by the end of the first week it had become an Atlanta phenomenon with crowds standing in line to get in. Today it serves more customers than any other full service restaurant in Georgia. People come to the OK Cafe for the quality of the food and the sort of menu your grandmother would make for Sunday dinner, if you had a grandma who could cook that is. Mix in an uncle who was a short order cook at the best grill in town, and you've got the family recipes that make the OK Cafe so popular. Add to the family tree an aunt with a sense of fun who created an art-filled environment, and it's easy to see how this ongoing party, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, became the home-away-from-home for so many.The OK Cafe opened its doors July 8, 1987 and so great was the longing for a true southern restaurant that by the end of the first week it had become an Atlanta phenomenon with crowds standing in line to get in.

Back open after almost a year, and it was worth the wait. Most of their staff that has been with them for years is back with bright smiling faces and serving up the same delicious southern comfort food they have for decades. Try it all!

This is my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. I have been coming here since I was a kid. Never had something here I didn't like. My favorite things are the sweet potato fries, mac n cheese, and the country fried steak. Pumped they reopened.

Great meat and three

OK Cafe is southern cooking at it's best without being too greasy. I've enjoyed pretty much everything I've had here - fried chicken, pot roast and delicious veggies for dinner; omelettes and waffles for breakfast/runch and great milkshakes for dessert. The joint has a laid back retro vibe which is a nice change of pace in Atlanta. Another plus is their cafeteria style takeaway service. Great for when you just have to get home. The only negative is the long on the weekends but they seem to manage the crowds well and there's a digital sign as you drive up telling you how long the wait is so you can make the decision to wait before you even get out of the car.

OK is not enough

Southern foods servered in an upscale diner atmosphere. The desserts are excellent and the waitresses are always freindly. Be prepared to wait at peak times.
