Eater Atlanta’s Top Takeout Standbys of 2020

From birria tacos and wings to sushi, barbecue, and vegan cakes, these were frequent stops for takeout this year

View as Map

Over the course of 2020, the Eater Atlanta team has eaten a lot of takeout from restaurants (some of which never previously offered the service before the pandemic began in March.) Eater asked a couple of regular contributors to the site, an Atlanta chef, and the president and CEO of several well-known restaurants around town for their takeout standbys this year. The list of restaurants below features everything from birria tacos and wings to sushi, barbecue, and vegan cakes.

Disclaimer: A number of restaurants on this map have resumed dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases, please visit the Georgia Department of Health. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.

Chef Ali Mesghali and his team offer diners an elegant experience paired with tight service, good wine, and Persian flavors which simply transport. Jennifer Zyman suggests ordering the stewed eggplant, cornish hen, and any of Rumi’s rice dishes for takeout. A third location opens at Colony Square in Midtown next year. Order online for pick-up.
