My complaint lies with the owner. My 6/4/2012

My complaint lies with the owner. My friend and I decided to go do Downwind, have some beers, and enjoy our Saturday afternoon catching up. We arrived there at 3pm, found a table on the porch, and proceeded to have a great time ordering Coronas. Then things changed drastically: We were approached by our waitress who informed us that the owner (who was also bar tending) asked us to leave our table and finish our beers at the bar so ""people waiting inside can have our table."" We were both in shock. This is first time that either of us have ever been asked to physically get up from our table, come inside, and sit at the bar. The most insulting part is that we spent more money on our drinks ($60) than the majority of the families there who came in and ordered food. Think twice before dining here . . . more

Downwind is so wonderful! 11/3/2010

Downwind has been making moussaka on Wednesdays for the last few weeks and I tried it last night. It was the best moussaka I've ever had in thirty years as a moussaka fan! Thick, creamy, cheesy bechamel sauce baked on top just the way I love it. more

great burgers; super friendly 5/10/2010

My wife and son checked Downwind out on a rainy day. I can't believe I've missed this place despite living in Dunwoody the past 15 years. The burgers were fantastic and the service was good. My son loved it and we'll be back! more

Best burgers and beer; Have no fear. 3/25/2008

Friendly place with great burgers and cold beer. What more could you want? Service is friendly and efficient, and the extension deck over looks the runways. Pros: Its uniqueness and Blue cheese Burgers. Cons: Occasional whiff of jet fuel. more

Best family friendly burger joint in Atlanta. 5/7/2006

Can't go wrong with Downwind. Once you experience it, you'll be wishing you had discovered it years before. Just don't tell everyone you know. We want to keep it a secret, sort of. Best Burgers in Atlanta with a good menu to satify everyones desires. more

PAYING FOR HOSTILITY 10/29/2004

My fiancee and I were served food that clearly was not fit for eating-in both of our opinions. When we very politely and quietly let the owner's daughter know that there was something wrong with what we were served we were met with hostility, not gratitude. We will not return to this restaurant. more

Come for the Atmosphere 10/22/2004

My husband and I loved the atmosphere of this place, right next to Dekalb Peachtree Airport and its colorful lights and small planes. The service was cheerful and friendly, was not very impressed with the food though. Granted, we didn't try the burgers and fries that Downwind is known for. Instead I opted for the spanikopita, I liked it, pastry, spinach and cheese can't go wrong with me. My husband ordered the grilled shrimp, it was definitely nothing to brag about and was served on a small plate, not worth the price. The calamari appetizer was good, the rings are cut larger than normal, but again, for its price, we could get a much bigger plate at a more upscale establishment. I left feeling I paid too much, but my husband said he would come again because of the atmosphere. That was what we were paying for, not the food. Pros: view Cons: , not good value more

The burgers and fries and to die for!!!! 9/26/2004

When I first went to this place with my co-workers, I thought it was some rinky dink place but as soon as we entered, we were greeted with warm welcomes and friendly service. The atmosphere is really cool and the food is delicious. Every last one of my co-workers emphasized how tasty their food was. I'm a loyal customer now. Thanks Downwind!!!! Pros: Food , Service, Atmosphere more

My FAVORITE!! 6/27/2004

This is one of my very favorite resturants. I eat lunch here at least once a week. The specials are always wonderful and you can't beat the burgers. The owner makes you feel like you are a member of his family. The deck is perfect for an afternoon beer. Pros: Value, Wonderful Food, Friendly Staff more

great outdoor burgers..with a view 8/13/2002

This place is FUN!! The food is well prepared and fresh and the service is good. If you like airplanes and good food at a great price, you'll love the Downwind. If you choose to eat outside you can watch the planes come and go every few minutes. Its a good place for the family and is fun for the kids as well, because most of them do like to see the planes. Though they have a very good menu that caters to more than burger lovers, the burger is still my choice when eating there. It's all a Hamburger or Cheeseburger should be at more than a reasonable price considering the very friendly service and the atmosphere that is laid back and easy going. Pros: Fun place to eat, Can fly in for lunch, Inexpensive but good Cons: can be crowded more
