FOOD REVIEW: Salt Factory Pub, Roswell GA

FOOD REVIEW: Salt Factory Pub, Roswell GA

Salt Factory Pub sits on Canton Street in historic Roswell in the center of what’s happening in North Fulton. Not only was Salt Factory Pub totally packed out, so was everything else around – including the parking. TIP: If you can’t get parking at the Antique market, go one block east toward Alpharetta St. (Hwy 9) and you should be able to find something within a short walking distance.

When we arrived at Salt Factory Pub we were told that the wait was 35-40 minutes, but we were seated within 20 and had a great table in the corner from where we could observe the entire restaurant.

FOOD REVIEW: Marietta Diner, Marietta GA

FOOD REVIEW: Marietta Diner, Marietta GA

We’ve had Marietta Diner on our radar for quite some time. This Saturday night it was COLD, COLD , COLD and I was happy to find a parking place close but our troubles were not over.

THE PLACE WAS PACKED! Normally I take this as a good sign that the food must be incredible, the service impeccable and certainly worth any wait we could experience. Unfortunately, this was not the case.
