Like the city itself, the restaurants of Augusta, Georgia, are astonishingly diverse. From cutting-edge dinner at award-winning Frog Hollow Tavern to an old-time family barbecue at the legendary Perry’s Pig, and from a pool hall with fantastic hamburgers (Sports Center) to a church-supper cafeteria (Honey From the Rock Cafe [just across from the Augusta National Golf Club]), the dining options are boundless. No food-focused visit is complete without a sandwich at Hildebrandt’s, a German deli that’s been around since 1879; and it’s a must to partake of a BBQ feast at the veritable smoke-house theme park known as Sconyer’s. If you’re vegan, there’s one-of-a-kind Humanitree House; if you’ve got a raging sweet tooth, no cakes are more magnificent than those at Boll Weevil Cafe & Sweetery; and for the best Mexican food in Dixie, astound your mouth at Taqueria el Rey.
Serving Dixie cafeteria fare with spiritual purpose, Augusta's Honey from the Rock is known for baked chicken, crispy corn fritters, and peach ice cream.
Hildebrandt's is a charming a 19th century Augusta grocery store that makes tall sandwiches and carries many hard-to-find candies, sodas, and nick-nacks.
Huge layer cakes rule at Boll Weevil, a stylish cafe by Augusta's waterfront where fine southern fare shares menu space with modern salad, soup & sandwiches.
