Where to Eat and Drink Around Turner Field

View as Map

The Atlanta Braves are moving to Cobb County in 2017, but until then, fans still get to make the trek to Turner Field. It's no short drive for some, so why not make the trip worth it with dinner before and/or a drink after a Bravos victory? The following 10 bars and restaurants might not be within walking distance of the ballpark, but at under three miles from The Ted, they aren't out of the way and provide fine alternatives to tailgating in the Blue Lot.

Get hungry at the stadium? Here's what (and where) to find some good food. [Photo]

Tom, Dick & Hank

Copy Link

Located just across the Downtown Connector, Tom, Dick & Hank is a fan's best option for a pregame meal before a quick walk to the ballpark. The restaurant offers a variety of smoked meats, plus specialty cocktails that can be enjoyed on its rooftop patio. 0.2 miles from Turner Field.

Smoke Ring

Copy Link

At this recent addition to Atlanta’s barbecue scene, chef Jordan Wakefield serves classics like smoked chicken, pulled pork, and Flinstonian slabs of ribs. Four different sauces represent four separate barbecue traditions. (Castleberry Hill, 2.0 miles from Turner Field)

Elliott Street Deli & Pub

Copy Link

It’s a classic neighborhood dive without a single frill. There are devoted regulars, but the staff doesn’t give outsiders any guff. Comment on the Frank Zappa portrait to the right of the bar and you’ll quickly make friends. (Castleberry Hill, 1.8 miles from Turner Field) [Elliott Street]

This local favorite is an excellent date choice for any couple that prefers dinner and a game to dinner and a show. The cayenne fried chicken is a fine meeting of Southern and Mexican cuisines, and the margaritas are on point. Bonus: Get two-for-one appetizers at the bar from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Cabbagetown 1.9 miles from Turner Field) [Andy P./Foursquare]

Sweet Auburn Curb Market

Copy Link

With a group and can’t decide on one restaurant? Let everyone go their separate ways while staying under the same roof. With options like Grindhouse Killer Burgers, Bell Street Burritos, Sweet Auburn Barbeuce, and Venezuelan sandwich shop Arepa Mia, everyone should be able to find something to eat. Open until 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. (Sweet Auburn, 1.9 miles from Turner Field) [Michael B./Foursquare]

Sister Louisa’s Church

Copy Link

Atlanta’s weirdest watering hole is also one of the hottest spots in town. If you take offense to the kitschy “religious” art adorning every square inch of the walls, find distraction with a game of ping pong on the table upstairs. (Old Fourth Ward, 2.2 miles from Turner Field) [Sister Louisa's]

The Sound Table

Copy Link

After a leisurely night taking in America’s past time, a change of pace might be needed. The cocktails are impressive and the thumping house music will get the blood flowing. (Old Fourth Ward, 2.2 miles from Turner Field) [The Sound Table]

Ammazza

Copy Link

One might walk into this pizzeria and scoff at the ultra-hip vibe, but a taste of the pie will remove any doubts. There’s an extensive list of wood-fired pizzas, but the Ammazzare, with Italian sausage, Vidalia onion, fresh basil, and house mozzarella, and the Inferno, featuring a real kick from spicy sopressata and Calabrian peppers, are tough to beat. (Old Fourth Ward, 2.3 miles from Turner Field)

Booths that have personal beer taps and televisions make it easy to plant at this sports bar for a while. In fact, it’s hard to think of any reason to leave once you’ve settled in. (2.3 miles from Turner Field) [Stats]
