A classic Atlanta dive! The current health score is a 72, but the food is delicious! This is a smoking bar, with an excellent jukebox. The bathroom is littered with graffiti, so I would bring a sharpie and leave your mark. Every time I come here I want to be treated like the scum of the earth by the servers.... More

It's a bar .... and smells like one. Food is pretty good but the bartendress could be more engaging. Though she was efficient. Overall its a do again. Fish and chips was tasty.

I was really looking forward to some vegetarian food and was heavily dissapointed by the vegetarian chilli. The side salad was very good though! So maybe the sandwiches and burgers are better. Atmosphere is relaxed and casual.

We didn't eat here because smoking is allowed. There is an outside area but it's small and smoking. Too bad for us. It's in a neat location.

I went to the Brookhaven location for the first time on a Sunday night. Not crowded so I'll try again on a Thursday or Friday afternoon/early evening. I had the burger and was surprised at the quality. Nice people and cold beer.

We stopped in to the Righteous Room based on reviews we had read online. It looked like it would be an interesting place, and folks had rated the food highly. However, when we got there it was clear that smoking is allowed in this bar and for that reason we decided not to stay for dinner. It's an interesting interior,... More

We found this in a little strip mall. Looking for a cheap drink and good bar food, this is the place. Very friendly staff and quick service. I was so impressed with it that we ended going there a couple of times.

Went there at the recommendation of the staff at the Highland Inn (it was one of the only places that was open late on a Sunday Night). Fabulous grilled cheese and cold beer.

We ate at the one with the tree in the bar, nice atmosphere ad pretty clean. The food was good and quite reasonably priced. The service however was lacking. Sitting at the bar was like being invisible for some reason. I'd return again, but is sit at a table with a flash light to signal for service.

I decided to try this place on Ponce for lunch based on the reviews. The bartender was friendly, but the place does smell of smoke. I has their house made veggie burger, served in a pita wrap, which as very good indeed. Vegetable of the day was sautéed spinach which was perfectly prepared. But then someone at the bar lit...
