    This friendly café has been serving up crunchy, juicy, fried-chicken ecstasy since 1947. The birds soak in a secret marinade before getting a light toss in flour and a bath in hot peanut oil. Mehr erfahren

    Go for oxtail, chitlins, some of the best fried chicken in Atlanta, not to mention Georgia peach cobbler. Always check out the daily vegetable specials. The fresh turnip greens are worth the trip. Mehr erfahren

    In business since the '40s, this Vine City staple serves some of Atlanta's best fried chicken alongside an assortment of other meat-and-three staples. Mehr erfahren

    Sink into some soul food at The Busy Bee Cafe. If you're feeling saucy, go for the smothered version, simmered in pan gravy, and wash it down with a glass of their refreshing sweet tea. Mehr erfahren

    Fried chicken has been the star since 1947. If you're feeling saucy, get the smothered version, simmered in an addictive pan gravy. Sweet tea and sides of collard greens and candied yams are a must. Mehr erfahren

    This is serious Southern soul food. The chickens are brined for a day, floured and fried in peanut oil, just as they have been since the café opened its doors back in 1947. Mehr erfahren

    Loved it! A celebrity walked in while we were eating! Food was excellent. Had fried chicken, Mac and cheese, and sweet potato pie. The sweet tea was perfect! Wish we had it this good in Kansas City.

    Everything is good here! A little shady outside, but everyone is friendly inside! Staff reminds you of the good ole southern charm! Small, and often no room, so be patient. It's worth the wait!

    The wonderful fried chicken tops the menu every day. Marinated for 12 hours, lightly breaded and well-seasoned, it’s deep-fried in peanut oil. Mehr erfahren

    The fried chicken is good but the smothered chicken is yummy! I had purchased the high priced small banana pudding. Glad that I bought it. Broccoli and cheese casserole and the carrot souffle are yum.

    The red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting is a popular choice at $5 per slice. Just be prepared, you may have to wait in line to get inside the famous Busy Bee! Mehr erfahren

    An Atlanta institution. Definitely enjoyed the fried chicken, mac and cheese, and green beans. If you go during lunch, get there early or go later.

    Crackly fried chicken, pork chop, and homespun sides are delivered non-stop by no nonsense servers who call every one “baby.” [Eater 38 Member]

    Their fried chicken is very good. I love the sides - I had collard greens and baked beans. Our waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable.

    #OVERRATED #OVERPRICED seasoning is decent, portions are minimal and the pork chop was NOT smothered!!! It was fried (tough) and dipped in gravy!! 😐 Poor representation of southern soul food...

    The fried chicken is some of the best I've ever had. Greens & Yams were great as well. Skip the Peach Cobbler-it's disappointing.

    A crackly and simple breading coats each piece of uncomplicated fried chicken. Not a trace of grease in sight, every juicy, salty bite will fulfill your Southern-fried food dreams. Mehr erfahren

    Busy Bee lets you know that it holds a hallowed place in Atlanta dining history, and fried chicken is a big part of that history. Mehr erfahren

    Love the Food! But the service leaves much to be desired. They MUST adjust to their level of business! I waited in a line for take-out on this past Sunday for one hour and 30 mins. Had to leave.

    They charge a 4% fee for take-out orders, and the food is served in polystyrene boxes with plasticware. I understand a surcharge for compostables, but for styrofoam...?!

    Food is good but outrageously priced. My wallet felt like I had just done at a 5 star restaurant. Fried chicken dinner 20 bucks. Wow

    Food is good. Not happy that there is a surcharge for takeout. For a small business setup, staff is very uncoordinated.

    Great place to take out-of-towners. Not to be missed: the "beelicious" fried chicken and banana pudding. I'm still dreaming about it. Get there early or be prepared to wait.

    I was there at 10:50 am, so I waited as this was my 1st visit. Well at 11:10 they still had not opened. I was disappointed as their sign states they open @ 11. I left prior to eating.

    Meh...this place is all hype. The parking is terrible, and the food is normal or un-extraordinary. This place is definitely skippable and does not live up to the hype at all.
