I’m not going to lie – I love food. So new restaurants is definitely one of my favorite things to check off my 30 before 30 list. But, as I believe I’ve said before, it’s sometimes difficult to make yourself go to new restaurants or take the time to research in order to find a new restaurant. Luckily all the local deals sites make it a little easier. A while ago I bought a deal to The Barrelhouse (and finally used just before expiration).

It’s on Tech Square (Georgia Tech, that is) so I expected it to be a typical college bar. That’s not a good or bad thing. But on a Monday night it was a very cozy and quiet. There are a lot of TVs and they have a diverse menu, with some good weekly specials (for example, Mondays are burger and a pint night for $6) and a large drink menu (beer, wine, and cocktails).

I had the fish n’ chips – great breading on the fish and very good tartar sauce. My friend had the fried chicken & grits – of course I had a bite and it was delicious. If you’re looking for a new laid-back, easy weekly dinner I definitely recommend it. I assume the weekends are more busy and attract more of the nearby college crowd, but I may be wrong on that!
