Growing up in Atlanta, Manuel’s Tavern signifies more than the average run-of-the-mill neighborhood bar. It represents a community with deep roots.
According to the website, Manuel Maloof was a world war two veteran who envisioned a bar in Atlanta based on bars he had seen in England during the war. Eventually Manuel became the CEO of Dekalb County, which intertwined Manuel’s Tavern with Georgia Democratic Politics, and soon Manuel’s Tavern became a social hub.
The menu at Manuel’s Tavern doesn’t leave much to be desired. They offer the full spectrum of food. From Gyros to Pork Chops to Jerk Chicken and everything in between. This is the spot to take that picky eater who is tough to please. While they eat the Nutella Sandwich, you can enjoy a nice Ribeye.
As you can see from the pictures, we enjoyed a variety of menu items. The French Dip was great, but the highlight was the Lasagne. I had previously never before tried the Lasagna, but it turned out delicious.
I am always a fan of Manuel’s wings. Get them extra crispy, and any sauce and you are good to go. If you have never tried the Terry Sauce ( the house sauce) you should at least give it a whirl. It’s kind of like Chick-Fil-A sauce if you’ve ever tried it.
How could we leave out the drink selection? Manuel’s Tavern also happens to be a bar, which has some of Atlanta’s finest brews on tap. I mean they have craft brews, traditional brews, and even blends. I am partial to the Black and Tan which is Bass mixed with Guinness.
