Do you know what happens when you are at a bar late at night talking about food? You end up visiting a place highlighted on the food network channel. Well, at least that is what happened to us this past weekend. After a long work week, we joined friends for a few beers at a nearby bar, hand-in-hand. Fun side-note, this was actually the first bar I visited when I moved to Atlanta nearly 5 years ago. Anyways, we spent the evening catching up and somehow food entered the conversation. Eric and I were complaining that the one thing we have yet to do in Atlanta is eat at a really good authentic diner. I love diners because of all of the food options and Eric likes it since breakfast is usually served 24hrs a day. Our friends mentioned a really great diner in Marietta, outside of Atlanta, that was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. The host visits low key places and so far all the ones I have visited that were featured on the show were delicious! This place is simply called, Marietta Diner.

It starts to get later in the night and my midnight munchies feeling kicks in so we decide to make the drive up to Marietta GA to check out this diner.

It definitely had the diner look from outside! I ended up ordering a small plate of pierogies and Eric decided against the usual breakfast meal and had a chicken parm sub.

Yes, it was probably completely unnecessary to eat all this so late at night and I should have just waited to try it another day but it was delicious and worth the drive out there! Thank you Guy Fieri (the show host) and our friends for helping us find a diner down here in Georgia!
