Ballenger's
Gore, GA    15-20 miles     $9-$21     706-857-6980

Chef Herb Ballenger and his Mom have been wowing locals for years. Reservations are a must. Expect the requisite steaks and salads but be dazzled by the surprising array of adventuresome offerings. The pizzas are really nice too and be sure to save room for Mrs. Ballenger's delicious homemade deserts. I mean it, at least split one! Out in the country, 20 minutes to Mountain Grove, this is a good choice on your way in from Atlanta or Rome. Open Thursdays through Saturdays 5:00-8:30pm

From Cloudland, at the blinking light, turn right. Go down the Mountain, through the four-way stop in Menlo and into Summerville (about 8 miles). When Hwy. 48 ends, take Hwy. 27 to the right towards Rome. Go over the crest of Taylor's Ridge and as you come down the other side look for two gas stations opposite one another, just before you get to the two gas stations, look left and see a large Knife and fork hanging on a nondescript one-story building.

Park in the back and be sure and check out the fresh herbs growing along the path, you'll see them again on your plate! Open Thursday through Saturday nights for dinner. You may bring your own bottle.
