The Silver Skillet is basically the Springsteen of breakfast joints. It's been around since 1956 (Springsteen picked up his first guitar in 1962) and today The Silver Skillet has lines out the door with their great and unchanged menu on the weekends while "The Boss" is still selling out his three hour shows. I have a hard time imagining a world without either.
When you arrive at the Silver Skillet, there will almost certainly be await and there is no hostess or number taking. The line to get a table is 100% dependant on the honor system.
|If you come on the weekend, bring your appetite, but more importantly bring your patience|
|Even the walls ooze with history|
The patrons are a true collage of soceity. There are nearby Georgia Tech Students, tourists or locals such as myself and my daughter.
|My Belle loves her biscuits and bacon|
|"Hey man, is that Freedom Rock Man?"|
|Country Ham and Red Eye Gravy|
|They are serving their 4th generation today.|
If you like R&B, you have to tune into Paladia's "Daryl's House." It's filmed at Daryl Hall's farm house in Connecticut and he brings in well known musicians to jam. It has a very intimate feel to it and some of the conversations over lunch and between songs bring a great amount of levity to the show.
Here he is with Smokey Robinson performing "Tears of a Clown"
With Cee Lo performing "I Can't Go for That"
With Smokey again performing "Sarah Smile"
