North of Atlanta, you'll find one of the fastest growing cities in the United States — Smyrna, Georgia. Combining a small town atmosphere with the convenience of being only 10 miles from a major metropolitan center, Smyrna offers its residents the best of both city and country living.
If you're in the Smyrna area and you'd like to catch some lunch, we've got some great ideas. Here are three of the best spots for lunch in Smyrna.
Muss & Turners
Muss & Turners
is a classic American restaurant with something for everyone. Whether you are looking for chicken, pork, beef, seafood, or even vegetarian options, this place has them all. Located on the Cumberland Parkway, Muss & Turners has an incredible selection of sandwiches and salads perfect for a sit-down meal or getting takeout on the run.
Make sure to try The Burger, a beef patty with poblano pepper, cilantro aioli, and melted cheddar cheese. With Thanksgiving coming up, The Gobbler is another excellent selection, combining turkey breast, a Ritz cracker stuffing, lingonberry coulis, and a thyme aioli that will get you in the holiday spirit by the time you finish your first bite. Muss & Turners is open from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Monday through Saturday.
Mezza Luna Trattoria
If you're in the mood for a wonderful Italian meal that will make you think you're in Rome, look no further than Mezza Luna Trattoria
on Spring Road. Inspired by classical Italian dishes from Puglia and Lazio, there's no better place in town to get some delightfully fresh pasta or a succulent seafood dish.
There are numerous pasta options for those looking for an Italian lunch. Pasta is plentiful, from a traditional spaghetti pomodoro to a rich, creamy fettuccine alfredo. Entrees include a moist and tender chicken parmigiana or a delightfully roasted salmon dish served with broccoli and a garlic spaghetti. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every day except Sunday, where they serve dinner all day starting at noon.
On the Bayou
You never thought you'd find a taste of Louisiana in the heart of Georgia, right? Well, Chef Kevin Ruttley was born and bred on the Bayou, and he has made it his mission to bring delicious Cajun delicacies to Smyrna.
Located on South Cobb Drive and open at 11 a.m. each day with lunch running until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, On the Bayou delivers an authentic Louisiana experience. In fact, part of what makes the restaurant so authentic is the seafood brought in from the Gulf and bread that Chef Ruttley has shipped in from the famous Leidenheimer Bread Company in New Orleans. You'll want to try a bowl of the special corn and crabmeat soup. Pair it with any of the eight signature po'boys and you'll end up with a lunch that's fit for a king.
