Bone Lick BBQ (from the P'cheen people) is scheduled to open this coming week (if I recall correctly) on the Westside on Huff. I've heard and read good things about the BBQ nights at P'cheen, so I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

I had Bone Lick BBQ today for lunch, they opened up today. Not sure what to make it so far, just that the BBQ sandwich and mac n' cheese left my mouth burning. Quite spicy.

Definitely will be going back, especially when they have beer.

I ate dinner there today. I thought it was good, but not exactly what I want in terms of BBQ. I'm not exactly sure how to describe my experience, but I kind of felt it was too refined for BBQ.

The (pork & pork &) beans were good, but I didn't love my pork sandwich. The ratio of slaw and picks to pork was too high. Less slaw and pickles and more meat, and I would have liked it more.

It was their first day open, and I know not to make any judgments on such a small sampling on opening day, so I won't form any sort of permanent opinion yet. Anyway, I'm happy to have another BBQ place near home and will probably be visit with some regularity.

Was it just me, or was the sandwiches packed with jalapeņos? I was burning up after the mac n' cheese and sandwich. I also felt there was way too much of the cole slaw on top (and under) of the meat. Sneaky sneaky.

No, it's really just that people were pretty inconsiderate when walking around, leaving their carts in the middle of aisles, cutting in front of others, etc. I guess some lady bumped into her in the bathroom and yelled at her for some reason. It was very crowded and I think it just flustered her. I didn't really have a problem besides being mildly annoyed that carts were blocking of a majority of the produce section.

That's my feeling on the place - its busy. If you're used to going to Publix in Roswell or Alpharetta, the Farmers Market is going to be a major change in pace.

I've gone there three times already. IT OWNS IT OWNS IT OWNS. I can't recommend it enough. The cocktails were very reasonable and very good. I had the bourbon sour; the foam from the egg white was the right consistency and I liked the added chili powder to balance out the sweet/sour flavor in a normal sour.

This is fantastic. I have a friend who actually just got a job there, so now I've got more reasons to stop by and check it out. Sounds like the place gets pretty crazy though on weekend nights.

Went to Krog Street Market tonight for dinner. Yalla was the only place that was serving meals, so they were very, very busy. I got in line before they opened and there were probably 20+ people ahead of me. Since they're brand new, they weren't exactly cranking out food. I had two pitas, one shwarma, and the other sabich. Both were good. I also had two of their house sodas, which I have enjoyed many times at The General Muir. When I got my food the line was even longer than when I first got in it.

How early were you there?

I swung by around 5:20pm and picked up some steak from Spotted Trotter, a treat from Little Tart, and some ice cream from Jeni's. Wasn't in the mood for Yalla, there was only five or so people in line then.

Illegal Food is back in business. The team behind the former Joystick Gamebar pop-up is opening its first full-service restaurant tonight in the old Bar Meatball space in Virginia-Highland. In addition to the regular burger menu, featuring The Hank, one of Atlanta's favorites, there is an ever-changing list of weekly specials from chef/co-owner Steven Lingenfelter.

Each week, Lingenfelter receives at least a half-cow from Brasstown Beef, which he butchers, leaving minimal waste, to create the burgers and specials. Think of dishes such as beef tartare, steaks, charcuterie, and oxtail. Vegetables and desserts, such as banana pudding ice cream, will come out of the kitchen as well. Behind the bar, look for wine, craft beer in cans and bottles and on draft, and some playful cocktails like the $25 Martini, which is simply a glass of Monkey 47 Gin and actually costs $25.

Illegal Food, located at 1044 Greenwood Avenue, is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Get a preview via the above gallery and menu below.
