Weaver D’s Delicious Fine Foods, Athens, GA.
Around since 1986 and made famous when R.E.M. used his catchphrase to title their album Automatic for the People, Weaver D’s is the best of southern soul food. The definition of a dive, at Weaver D’s, you stand in the chow line to get a generous portion of pork chops on a divided paper plate with two sides like broccoli casserole, mac ‘n cheese, or collard greens. Then have a seat at one of the two communal tables, and share this sumptuous meal with your fellow man. Owner Dexter Weaver uses the same special seasoning mix (flour, garlic powder, seasoning salt, s&p) for his also-famous battered fried chicken as for his pork chops.Back to top
