Good food - but why do all the white people work in the front, and African Americans in the kitchen? Feb 20, 2014
Food is delicious; all the typical and stereotypical southern dishes you could dream of, along with all of the butter (Paula Deen would approve, even if this isn't her restaurant). Macaroni and Cheese, Cornbread, Fried Chicken, Grits, Biscuits and Gravy... and all the "fixins", literally. It was PACKED and there was hardly any seating, although they probably easily seat 200+ at a time, and the wait wasn't long at all. I sat at the counter and got to watch them prepare my food and listen to the staff banter back and forth and observe customers who were obviously regulars, there every day.

Downside: It really bothered me that cooks, busboys, and a couple servers were primarily African American, while the majority of the servers, managers, and clientele were White/Caucasian. It didn't help that everyone was running around saying "Yessah!" and "Yessem!", either. :( I suppose it's the neighborhood -- Buckhead is a traditionally well-to-do, upper class White neighborhood; however, it screams of the lack of change in racial equality in Georgia.

No Worries...Everythings OK at OK Cafe and Take-Away! Good fresh food for cheap! Aug 26, 2008
No Worries...Everything's OK at OK Cafe and Take-Away! Good fresh food for cheap at a trendy diner-type place just north of downtown Atlanta! This was the site of our mini TB meet-up with Robin (robingaf), so we recommend for the atmosphere when meeting someone new. The menu is HUGE and all the food is prepared fresh and homemade--just like Southern style cooking! It was a bit tricky to find for us but right off the I-75 freeway. You can't miss the colorful facade and diner-like seating. We all ate our fill and prices were cheap (hopefully...Robin picked up the tab!) at least according to the menu. The lunch sandwiches were great tasting and they had many breakfast items as well. They also specialize in take-away as their name suggestes with plenty of parking. The wait staff was friendly and the entire atmosphere was definitely "Southern hospitality!" Recommend for small gatherings and great food!
