I'm headed over the first week of April and looks like Keeneland doesn't get rolling until that weekend. Too bad.
Looks like I already have a hot date in Nashville, though... Drunken SF meets are the best.
Ok so I'm basically a lurker here, but I can't let someone go to Fatt Matt's. That place is awful. They boil the ribs before slightly smoking/grilling it, so they don't develop a nice smokey flavor. It's also often underdone and chewy. There aren't amazing BBQ places in the city, but Fox Bros would be the best.
For burgers check our Farm Burger in Decatur or Buckhead, that's the best place in town. I also really enjoy Grindhouse which is near Piedmont Park.
Oh, I forgot to mention H&F when talking about burgers. They definitely have the best I've ever had, but it's hard to get. They sell out every day and the lines for Sunday brunch (in which they also serve it) can be crazy.
However I also think that it's the best restaurant in the city so net getting a burger could turn out to be a good thing.
This place Bocado basically makes the same exact burger (including getting bread from H&F) and they serve it for lunch and dinner every day.
