Get in[edit]

MARTA Rail East-West Line stops in Edgewood/Candler Park Station (E4) and East Lake Station (E5). Interstate 20 is also close.





  • Holy Taco, 1314 Glenwood Ave. Hipsters and local families fill this casual Mexican restaurant.
  • The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave SE. A bar/grill that locals flock to for the burgers and beer.
  • Ann's Snack Bar, 1615 Memorial Dr (I-20 Eastbound to exit 61A, Maynard Terrace; one block west on Memorial Dr), +1 404 687-9207. Mo-Sa 11AM-7PM. A dive located in an industrial part of East Atlanta where for 44 years the surly but likeable "Ms. Ann" served up her specialty, the "Ghetto Burger," which was rated the "Best Burger in America" by Raymond Sokolov in the Wall Street Journal. The building only seats 8 people, but a screened patio was added after the WSJ article caused a surge in popularity. It's common to have a 2-3 hour wait, but many people think it's worth it since the lines have been that long for years. Ms. Ann passed away in 2015, but the restaurant is still going thanks to a handful of staff who took over in the last few years and continue to enforce Ms. Ann's famous 8 rules, including "no cursing in the snack bar". Ghetto Burger with fries $9.50.
