Chili dogs at Nu-Way Weiners in Macon; crispy flounder in Darien at Skipper’s Fish Camp; peach ice cream from Dickey’s Peach Farm in Musella — these are three of the 100 Plates Locals Love, a new feature on Georgia’s tourism department website. It’s not all regional specific food, by any means — you’ll find listings for things like great poutine, tacos, and cannoli — but so what? Those are plenty interesting and useful too.
That said, we love the sound of so many of the more Georgia-specific dishes: The Mayberry from home.made in Athens piles fried chicken, pimento cheese, bacon, and pepper jelly on a homemade biscuit! The Perfect Pear in Perry serves something called pecan pie bread pudding! Dinglewood Pharmacy‘s scrambled dog! Enough exclamation points. Suffice it to say there’s plenty here to keep the culinarily curious captivated and on the road for a long, long time.
