One of the most talked-about subjects in our Facebook group is restaurants. MIC’s Economic Development Committee decided to visit Mableton restaurants periodically, and provide some basic information about them — or in other words, “shine a spotlight” on the restaurants in our community. MIC does not endorse the restaurants; the Spotlight exists simply to introduce Mabletonians to restaurants in Mableton.
Date of visit: Thursday, October 4, 2018, around 12:30pm
Food type: Soul / Down-home Southern “comfort” food
Takeout/Delivery: Call-in available for takeout
Location: 705 South Gordon Road SW, Mableton GA 30126 (very small but has tables/booths)
Hours: Monday: closed; Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 1130am – 8pm; Wednesday: 1130am – 7pm; Saturday/Sunday: 1pm-7pm
Food Safety Score: 96, FS, 3.30.17
Ambience: Like a family kitchen, straightforward utilitarian
Experience: Super-friendly service; all food fresh daily, and the cook even came out to say hello and ask how our food was. Had delicious roasted tilapia, yellow rice, collards, cornbread, mac ‘n cheese, and rib sandwich served Texas-style (whole ribs on white sandwich bread, no sauce). Meals served in Styro boxes, all include rice, 2 sides, and cornbread or roll. Everything seasoned wonderfully. Willie B’s also caters, and operates a very busy Food Truck, present at many large events (i.e. Sweet Auburn Music Fest)…and has made the top 7 Soul Food restaurants in Atlanta in the AJC for last 5 years.
