Buckhead Diner is everything you picture when you think of a classic diner, from the aluminum exterior to the bright neon signs, but without the harsh lighting and small, cramped booths. They serve some old school classics with modern twists, like a brisket and short rib burger and four cheese macaroni, in a more upscale space than you’d expect, with wooden (and more spacious) booths and white tablecloths. Get the famous meatloaf and a few desserts to share.
