Patch's weekly look at a nearby restaurant that you might want to check out.
Let's get this clear right off the bat. There's nothing fancy about this place. Not that it's a dive, either. This space on Mountain Industrial Boulevard used to be a Taco Mac and the decor may not have changed much since then, but the food certainly has. More on that momentarily. They have poker night, bingo night, pool tables and so forth. The music is pretty loud. Lots of television screens, all tuned to sports channels. But you can bring your children here - and people do. There's a large non-smoking section away from the bar and the noise that is family friendly. This is what I would recommend if you're bringing the little ones. The kids' menu has what you might expect. They can partake of mini corn dogs, grilled cheese, or a …

Each week Patch takes a look at a nearby restaurant that is worth checking out. This week's choice is Bonefish Grill.
I'm not really one for chain restaurants, and actually I'm starting to be somewhat of a food snob. I refuse to eat at most big, sit-down chain restaurants that shall remain nameless because of generally poor service and food that's way too pedestrian. I'm not all that keen on any fast food; the smell of it is just way too much for me. (Besides, chicken nuggets aren't chicken nuggets at all. Umm, I'll grab a smoothie instead. Thanks.) And, I don't really do places that look dirty. Enter Bonefish Grill. My boyfriend (now ex, long story) took me once, and I don't even do fish. (I'm allergic to shellfish, and tend to run away from all things fishy, even people.) But, when we walked in I was pleasantly surprised. It was soooooo nicely set up. …

In Snellville for just two weeks, this barbecue restaurant aims to be the local go-to spot.
Each week Patch stops by a local restaurant to find a great place to grab a bite. Check out this week's pick. This week we chose: Still Water's Restaurant. Carlyn and Anthony Butts recently moved their restaurant from Grayson to Snellville. The previous spot, which also had been home to the old Grayson House Restaurant, was too small, and too old. The 1890s Victorian-style home needed a lot of improvements, Carlyn Butts said. So, two weeks ago, the Butts Family moved their business to Snellville. Getting There: If you don't travel beyond Snellville's gateway intersection at Main Street and Scenic Highway, or you spend all your time shopping closer to Ronald Reagan Parkway (Ulta, Old Navy, Target, etc.), then you will miss Still Waters …

Results of recent Gwinnett County restaurant inspections in Snellville by East Metro Public Health with a synopsis of deficiencies found by the inspector. These are reports over the past week.
