Foursquare Tips

  • meat entrees - fried chicken
  • Calm down & get the banana puddin
  • The wonderful fried chicken tops the menu every day. Marinated for 12 hours, lightly breaded and well-seasoned, its deep-fried in peanut oil.
  • Get the fried Whiting!! That Broccoli and cheese is Super Dope!
  • The food is good, but the service is hit or miss.
  • Since 1947, the Busy Bee Cafe has been one of Atlanta's best soul food restaurants. Service is friendly and the restaurant is busy and cheerful. Atlanta hearts Soul Food!
  • 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
  • Get the Banana Pudding
  • One of my fav soul food spots in ATL..
  • Walk home to get the weight of all that food off ... Cause u just gained 5lbs
  • Get the fried whiting!!! Nothing like it!!!
  • Crackly fried chicken, pork chop, and homespun sides are delivered non-stop by no nonsense servers who call every one baby. [Eater 38 Member]
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Tilapia was fried to perfection! Sweet Potato fries were fantastic!
  • Try the catfish
  • 2 greasy, finger-lickin thumbs up
  • 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.
