This week in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jon Watson visits McKinnon's Louisiane. More of a tribute than a review, the piece praises the customer service of the restaurant and highlights the fact that little has changed since Billy McKinnon opened its doors forty years ago. It's the kind of place with truly regular regulars— especially on Wednesday Cabernet nights— and Watson says that it's "a time capsule of old-school Atlanta dining, with a feel that couldn't be recreated if you tried." He also says that there's "an authentic sense of community at McKinnon's that can only develop organically, through years of a shared experience. And that is something Atlanta restaurants could use more of these days."
