Neighborhood: Eastside, Decatur
Address: 3771 Covington Hwy. Decatur, GA 30032
DECATUR, GA!!! Once a quiet eastern suburb in Metro Atlanta, now a heavily populated, fairly rough urban terrain. It's home sweet home to myself and, at one time or another, home to several of ATL's most famous hitmakers like B.O.B, Lloyd, Travis Porter, Gucci Mane, and more. Now, I'm not talking about the more friendly confines of Downtown Decatur. I'm referring to unincorporated DeKalb County and streets like Candler Rd, Wesley Chapel, Glenwood, and Covington Hwy. And, it's on Covington Highway that you will find my absolute FAVORITE breakfast spot, Demitris Restaurant.
|Busy day at Demitris|
I was actually introduced to this place by my big homey Block (VP at Sony Records and CEO of Block Enterainment - Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, Boyz In Da Hood). Located within minutes of infamous DeKalb County landmarks like Club Primetime (nightclub for 18 and up crowd), The Cave (after hours spot), the 285 Flea Market, and, of course, the DeKalb County Jail, this place seemingly sits at the center of the hood. But, when you walk in the door, the warmth and friendliness of a true down home, southern diner shine through.

The menu is short and sweet. They serve both breakfast and lunch items. Breakfast, they serve all day. Perfect for us late risers!!! And that's what you'll see most of the patrons ordering. Every now and then, you'll see a sandwich sneak out the kitchen. I saw a beautiful, fresh grilled chicken salad delivered a table on my last visit.

So, if you're ever in the area, hit me up on Twitter. I'll meet you over there. I'm ALWAYS down to grab a bite to eat at Demitris!!! Tell Tracy and Dias that you heard about them on ATL Bite Life.
