We stopped in Atlanta for a night on our way down to Florida. I booked a hotel in downtown Atlanta so we could be close to the Zoo and so we could experience the downtown experience and walk around and hopefully find a good restaurant to eat. That is how we landed at Ted's Montana Grill and thank goodness we did.
We were greeted with a smile when we walked in the door and seated right away. The hostesses and waitresses were very nice to us and fell in love with our kids right away.
They took our drink order and put some fresh cucumbers on our table for a free appetizer. The cucumbers were something different then I am use to for a free appetizer, but they were fresh and hit the spot. I ordered a local IPA that was on tap and enjoyed it very much. I wish I could remember the name of the beer.
My wife and I both ordered burgers and got mac and cheese and fries for the kids. Luckily the waitress told us how big the mac and cheese was because we were going to order them both their own. One was plenty for the both of them to share and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The burgers were fantastic! We both were amazed at the quality and couldn't get over how good they were. The meat was mouth watering and would fall apart in your mouth. They were so big that I couldn't even finish the whole thing.
Another thing that was awesome about the experience was that when we were waiting for our food after we had ordered, our waitress came over to us and asked us if we liked Strawberries. My daughter LOVES strawberries and was very thankful that she had brought them for us to eat while we waited, at no additional charge. The strawberries were so fresh and some of the best I had ever had (which is weird to say about strawberries, but it was true). It made my wife want to order there tower of strawberry shortcake, but since she couldn't eat another bite, we passed on getting the dessert.
The whole experience was great, the best experience we had at a restaurant the entire trip. I would recommend this place to anyone that was passing through Atlanta and I hope to go back there myself. They did mention to me that there are other Ted's around the country and to check to see if we have any in our area. It looks like there is one in both Columbus and Lexington, so I will have to make a road trip to one of these places. I hope the customer service is just as good as the one in Atlanta though.
