Restaurants in Thomson, GA

“Camellia City of the South” and home to the far-famed Belle Meade hunt club, Thomson is a great place to stop when hungry on the road between Augusta and Atlanta. There’s excellent BBQ, at weekend-only Neal’s and at Poppa’s Finest, where meat virtually falls off rib bones with no force more than gravity. For a cornucopia of southern fare dished out cafeteria-style, Sweet T’s is one of the best sources anywhere. Meat and three? At Sweet T’s, you want meat and five. Sweet T’s hometown food is all the more delightful eaten in a room where decor is a wall-to-wall ode to Elvis. Ivery’s is another good place to eat local food with the locals. Chicken — fried or baked — is the specialty.
