Hosted at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, the 2016 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game promises to be an exciting start to this year’s college football season.
If you’re in town for the game, consider checking out any of these restaurants for a meal and dining experience you won’t be disappointed with.
1. Taco Mac
100 Techwood Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Taco Mac is a major hit in downtown Atlanta on any night, and it’s sure to be that way come September 3 for the Chick-Fil-A Kick-Off Game. Taco Mac has many tasty food choices to satisfy any palate. Along with many beers on tap and multiple wide-screen televisions throughout, Taco Mac is sure to treat most to great times with friends. Plus, Taco Mac is just steps away from the Dome. Be warned though, Taco Mac will be EXTREMELY crowded throughout that particular weekend, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time.
2. Hudson Grille
120 Marietta Street, Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Competing with Taco Mac as a sports bar and grill nearby the Georgia Dome, Hudson Grille serves a variety of dishes for its clientele, with plenty to please virtually every palate. The one slight drawback about this Hudson Grille is the amount of space inside the restaurant. Despite the smaller space, this is still a great spot within walking distance of the Dome for a meal. Be warned, Hudson Grille, like Taco Mac, should be busy on game day, so plan accordingly.
3. Legal Sea Foods
275 Baker Street NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30313
Legal Sea Foods is a seafood restaurant in the area of the Georgia Dome. Located within the Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown, Legal Sea Foods has all kinds of specialties for those seeking something from the sea. Though a bit more pricey than Taco Mac or Hudson Grille, with its spectacular views of downtown Atlanta and an extensive menu, guests are sure to find something to dive into at Legal Sea Foods.
4. McCormick and Schmick’s Seafood and Steaks
190 Marietta Street, Atlanta, Georgia 30303
For those looking for something more upscale than Legal Sea Foods, McCormick and Schmick’s provides high-end steaks and seafood options to its patrons within a convenient location inside the CNN Center. Being a steak and seafood restaurant, McCormick and Schmick’s is a pricer choice for a meal before/after the Chick-Fil-A Kick-Off Game, but it may be less crowded than the other options presented above.
1 CNN Center #269 Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Dantanna’s is another place inside CNN Center in downtown Atlanta that should be a spot to consider for a meal either before or after the Chick-Fil-A Kick-Off Game.
