Proving that Atlanta isn’t the only city in Georgia where visitors are guaranteed both great Southern fare and authentic Asian flavors, the small, often overlooked city of Newnan is home to a plethora of exceptional local restaurants providing food-loving locals with the finest home-cooked dishes imaginable. In doubt? Read on to discover 10 of Newnan’s most celebrated restaurants.
Regularly referred to as the best Southern food in the state, Mother’s Kitchen serves traditional home-cooked hearty dishes big enough – and tasty enough – to satisfy even the largest of appetites. Fried chicken is one of the foods most associated with the Southern states and it is by far the most sought-after dish at Mother’s Kitchen. Best enjoyed with a side of mac ‘n’ cheese, a spoonful of greens and a slab of cornbread, this is the sort of meal that will keep you going all day long. Diners lucky enough to meet Mother herself are in for a treat, as the lady is as warm and welcoming as her delicious dishes.

Connected to The Alamo, Fabiano’s Pizzeria is perfectly situated for an early supper before enjoying all of the nighttime entertainment The Alamo brings, or for a late night pizza after the show is over. On the menu is a selection of appetizers, soups, salads, pizza, hoagies, burgers, entrees and desserts. A great spot for groups of friends, the basket of 40 teriyaki jumbo buffalo wings is the tastiest in town. Wash the wings down with a monster slice of your favorite pizza or for something a little wackier but equally delicious, try the 20-inch loaded baked potato. A sour cream-based potato salad covered with cheddar cheese and bacon, this is far from an ordinary pizza (and it is found on the pizza menu) but it is certainly just as good.

Locals return week after week to try the ever-changing burger and cocktail specials at Meat N Greet.

Previous burgers of the week specials have included the Ranchero – a beef patty topped with chorizo, smoked Gouda cheese, sambal mayonnaise, lettuce, pico de gallo and a sunny side up egg, and the Double Double – a beef patty grilled with mustard and topped with double bacon, double cheese, grilled onions, fry sauce, lettuce, tomato and pickles. If that’s not enough to tempt you, elsewhere on the menu you will find a delicious selection of gluten-free sandwiches, whole fried okra, chicken wings and hot dogs.
