Just a short 45min. drive outside Atlanta, on the way to Augusta, is Social Circle, GA. And this is one small town Sherman missed. This is such a casual laid-back little town, chock full of large Gone With The Wind era mansions. And the Blue Willow Inn, is one of our favorite places to dine on Southern Homestyle Cookin! The home has been beautifully restored. We always request seating in the Lewis Grizzard Room, with Bulldog artifacts, so dear to the late AJC columnist. Grab our plates, and on to the buffet, Fried Chicken, Chicken Livers, Roast Beef, and the bounty of Southern style prepared veggies-Collards, Fried Green Tomatoes, Corn, Lima Beans, and homestyle Cranberry Salad. The Peanut Butter Pie is not to be missed. Another glass of sweet tea, please.
Pros: Traditional Southern Buffet! Beautiful Southern Mansion!
Cons: It's A Forty-Five Minute Drive From The City!
