So, my best friend (Atlanta newcomer) and I walked into Paschal's on a Monday afternoon starving to death! We both had been pretty busy for most of the day and I couldn't wait to show off the legendary Paschal's! When the basket of cornbread & butter came to the table she knew she was in for a surprise.... aside from sweet tea, it's the most southern perfection to pair with the best food south of the Mason Dixon.
We ordered the sweet & savory platter to start. We chose the Cajun dry rub wings, voodoo shrimp, and calamari. First off, those are the juiciest, crispiest, wings ever in life! The flavor, omg Best wings in Atlanta!! The shrimp were HUGE and super succulent, and the calamari was fried perfection. I also ordered the 1947 fried chicken, my usual favorite guilty pleasure! The chicken is seasoned to perfection, with and amazing golden coating of crispy seasoned batter & unlike the usual chicken breast, ZERO DRYNESS DECTECTED! The Mac & cheese is a cheesy, creamy, melty dollop of heaven. Definitely better than anyone's granny or auntie! Basically we literally wobbled out of there!! Everyone should visit, and order 1 of everything on the menu! Lol Paschal's will always be one of my favorite Atlanta staples!
