I ordered a two-egg breakfast that was accompanied by my choice of hash browns or home fries, grits or gravy, and either a biscuit or toast. I chose hash browns, grits, and a biscuit. I was feeling pretty hungry, so I ordered a single pancake as well. The food was cooked to order, and made right in front of us. They have a setup very similar to the Waffle House. Although I had to add salt and pepper to my meal, it was still pretty good. It was definitely like having a home cooked meal. I am very specific when ordering, and everything came out perfectly. The serving sizes were good. The pancake was the size of the plate, and was light and fluffy. It was delicious! I drank coffee, and had no complaints there either.
The service was awesome. We were greeted as soon as we came in. The cooks and cashier were very nice and helpful. They cracked a few jokes, and made the dining experience excellent. We didn’t have to wait long for our orders to be taken or to receive our food. We were often checked on, and our glasses remained full.
The restaurant is set up like a typical diner with booths, tables and counter seats. The seating is limited. I like diners because they always seem to have a comfortable and inviting setting. This diner was no different.
Overall, I enjoyed my experience. The food was good, the service was great, and I loved the diner atmosphere. Not to mention, the prices were just right. I would most certainly recommend this restaurant.
Thanksgiving is just two days away! I definitely look forward to eating, and spending time with my loved ones. In light of the holiday, I decided to make a list of the top 5 things I am thankful for. Trust me, I have a lot more to be thankful for, but for the purpose of this post, I will limit it to 5.
1. I am thankful for the many blessings and mercy God has shown me in my life.
2. I am thankful for my family. They are my backbone, and have provided me with a strong foundation. Our bond is impenetrable.
3. I am thankful for my true friends. My true friends are supportive of me, and put in as much effort to preserve our friendship as I do.
4. I am thankful for the young man in my life. Love is a beautiful thing.
5. I am thankful for the necessities in life, i.e. a job, car, home, and food. These are the basic things that so many people take for granted. I don’t. Life is unpredictable, and any of these things can be taken away. Cherish the things you do have, and work hard for the things you don’t.
People who live the most fulfilling lives are the ones who are always rejoicing at what they have. —Richard Carlson
What are some of the things you’re thankful for?
Listen here. If you plan to visit Atlanta and want to have brunch, please visit Chequers. This restaurant offers a Sunday brunch for $25. It is definitely worth every penny. The brunch is all you can eat, and drinks (juices) are included too. There were so many things to choose from. They had waffles, creme brulee, sushi, made-to-order omelets, and so much more. Everything tasted very fresh and well-prepared. The buffet was constantly restocked; none of the trays were ever empty.
I ate just about everything they had out. Not really, but the best thing I ate was the Louisiana-style bread pudding. It was so good!! I wish I knew of a local restaurant that makes bread pudding like the one I experienced in Atlanta .
The restaurant is very nice and is comparable to a Maggiano’s type atmosphere. The only downside of the entire experience, was our server. He wasn’t very good. My glass was empty for a significant amount of time. He passed our table several times without asking if we needed anything or if we’d like a refill. It got to the point that we had to ask for a refill. I will say that our table stayed clear of dirty dishes, but that was only because the busser came by often.
Although the service wasn’t the best, the food definitely made up for it. I would highly recommend this restaurant specifically for the Sunday brunch. I Googled Chequers to see if it has other locations and it does, but under partnering names like Devon.
