Here's what 24/7 Wall St. had to say about Georgia's "must-visit" restaurant:
"In 2011, the Georgia House of Representatives officially named Mary Mac's 'Atlanta's Dining Room.' The fare is mostly Southern at this genteel, unpretentious, but always lively restaurant — fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese, chicken and dumplings, shrimp and cheese grits, and more."
