Our Southern Menu

Not many things have changed since we first opened our doors in 1945 – down to shucking bushels of corn and snapping fresh green beans by hand in our kitchen. Every morning, we bake our own scrumptious breads and desserts, like old fashioned banana pudding and fresh Georgia peach cobbler, and brew up the best sweet tea -- “Table Wine of the South”. Our foods include the crispiest, juiciest fried chicken you’ll ever taste and more than thirty fresh vegetables, including favorites like Fried Okra, new creations such as Tomato Pie, our world-famous Fried Green Tomatoes, and more. Many of our recipes were documented by former owner Margaret Lupo in the 1960s, while others have been passed down from family members over the years.

Seven decades

Of history and tradition

Today, Mary Mac’s is the last of sixteen tea rooms that once dotted intown Atlanta in the 1940s. The food is undeniably comforting, the atmosphere feels as familiar as your grandmother’s kitchen, and our staff treats every customer as if they were serving their long-lost cousin a holiday meal. We welcome you to come enjoy Atlanta’s Dining Room, where we have proudly served classic Southern cooking and hospitality since 1945! If it’s your first visit to Mary Mac’s, be sure to ask for your complimentary cup of pot likker and cornbread!
