NOTHING GUILTY ABOUT IT: Our Picks for the Best “Guilty Pleasure” Food in LaGrange

The truth is a little grease never hurt anybody… It usually just makes things better. No need to look any further for your greasy meal of choice in LaGrange. We’ve done the hard part and found the fan-favorite spots for you to best indulge in the local dining scene.

With Southern summertime in full swing, you might be reaching for watermelon and BLTs, but we’re here to tell you that summer vacation is for really treating yourself. LaGrange is a hotspot for your favorite guilty pleasure foods-we’re talking a greasy, smothered, covered and possibly dripping type situation. Whether your meal of choice is a thick rack of ribs or a loaded chili dog, we’ve got you covered this summer. Check out our top picks below and add a little more grease to your weekend plans: 

Did Someone Say Ribs?

The Secrets In The Sauce

Nothing says summer in Georgia (well, besides peaches) quite like barbecue. Roger’s Barbecue has been around since 1945, so it’s pretty safe to say they know their way around a smoker. Start with fried green tomatoes or a plate of fries topped with pulled pork and melted cheddar. For the main event check out the beef brisket or baby back ribs. You won’t be disappointed. 

Try Something New

Familiar Favorites With a Twist

Beacon Brewing Co. takes your traditional guilty pleasure foods and gives them a makeover, the most unique on our list of greasy picks. Burgers, grilled cheeses and hot dogs line the menu, but they are far from ordinary. Choose from a juicy burger with sriracha aioli and marinated bulgogi beef, a thick grilled cheese with pork belly and fried tomatoes or a cajun hot dog smothered in crawfish etouffee. They take everything to the next level.

It’s Mighty Mighty

Just Letting It All Hang Out, This Is How The Story Goes

Brickhouse Grille has every kind of indulgent food you can think of and then some. The perfect place to treat yourself, opt for the tater tot nachos piled high with queso and bacon, fries topped with Philly ribeye steak or a beer-battered shrimp basket. Sweet tooth more of your thing? Then you’ve come to the right place. Choose from a high-rise New York-style cheesecake or a colossal triple chocolate cake topped with vanilla ice cream… you really can’t go wrong. 

For The Big Game

… And Your Appetite

With ½ priced wings on Mondays and Soul Food Sundays, you may find yourself at Global Sports Bar to watch a big game, but it’s the food that will make you stay. Their menu boasts crispy fried chicken, stuffed full shrimp po’boys, and fried green tomatoes drizzled with ranch and bacon… need we say more? Well, there’s one more thing we should mention. Global Sports is one of the best spots to eat wings in town. After all, what sports bar is complete without a good wing selection? Wing and sports enthusiasts can have their fill of all the good stuff at Global.

Just Like Mama Makes It

Tried And True, Never Lets You Down

If you are looking for classic southern soul food, you’ve come to the right place. Ask the regulars about their favorite items on the menu. Staples like fried catfish and barbecue chicken regularly make an appearance at the Good Ol’ Country Buffet. Take your pick from faithful favorites like homemade mac-n-cheese, fried okra or squash casserole to keep your catfish company. (And of course, never forget to pile on the gravy). While you load up your plate, make sure to add a heap of homemade peach cobbler if it’s on the menu. 

Life is way too short to spend your summer eating salads. If you ask our stance, in most instances, the more grease, the better.
