I love Fontaine’s! Every time I’ve gone, I’ve gotten consistently great service, and trust me I can really, really, really appreciate that! I’m not sure if you know this, but Fontaine’s has weekday happy hour specials– so being in law school, I have the perk of checking them out. Last year I enjoyed an awesome seafood spread of crab legs, shrimp, & oysters! I loved it!
This year I headed back with some girlfriends. We had an awesome time: talking and munching away. Our server was great (I wish I could give her a shoutout — but I don’t know her name- she was incredibly attentive, even though we just ordered waters and gorged on the happy hour deals).
Here is what we ordered:
Shrimp Boil! I love getting them & I love making them! They’re an incredibly easy appetizer to make for a dinner party/luncheon/girls night. All you need to do is boil a tablespoon of Old Bay seasoning (per pound of shrimp) , half of lemon and other seasonings you like with a pot full of water. After the water is done boiling add your skin on shrimp! Once the water re-boils remove the shrimp from the pot on to a platter and now you have boiled-peel and eat shrimp!
Have you been to Fontaine’s? Do you love it? Tell me what you think people!
Loved it and ordered way more than I could eat. Two tacos max.
I would make it a point to try the steak and shrimp!
What to wear: extremely casual. Around lunch time office people from Pepsi are hurrying in & it is extremely crowded. You can also see students from GA state, Emory and GA tech making an appearance in their relaxed hipster looks.
Last night my Iftaar consisted of Taqueria Del Sol (TDS)! OMG. If you live in or near Atlanta you really need to go to TDS. It’s one of my favorite quick & cheap mexican places, and the food never fails. Some of my personal staples are the:
Roasted chicken enchiladas with the beef red chili, the corn and shrimp soup, the fish tacos, and this turnip green side they offer (which is cooked in a chicken broth, and has a nice kick to it).

I have been going to TDS for over 5 years now- at least since 2009! My sister first took me to TDS when I was in college, and we use to go to town on the queso. I do not drink, but my friends tell me that they love the margaritas. It’s a family friendly place, PERFECT for dining with a platonic friend — seeing as no one will have to fight for the check or awkwardly ask to split the check (you pay at the counter when you order).
