    We had a really good time here. The best thing was the burgers were really thick and served nice and hot. I had the bacon cheddar bugger, nice.

    I don't normally play pool, but there's that too. The sound system is no big deal either. It's just a great big sports bar place that's not too high and right nearby. Give it a shot.

    Man I've had some good times at this place. Great pool tables, t.v.'s and beer. Haven't been in a while but would love to have that Famous experience again!

    Sports and Drinking

    If your only purpose is to drink, play pool and watch sports this is the place. Food and drinks pretty cheap by ATL standards and there are plenty of TVs and pool tables. Not a place to pick up women. Very smoky and dark.

    I wouldn't go here again if you paid me. My burger still had marks where the jockey was hitting it. I saw two heated exchanges involving pool games, and thought a brawl may erupt at any moment.

    This is a great place to eat drink and watch sports. Plenty of TVs so everyone gets to watch their game.

    The Famous

    Excellent for happy hour, big game sports, pool and general social drinking. Yeah, it's a funny space and yeah it's smoky but they stay packed. They have a good beer and bar selection. I generally like to stay in the back which may seem less smoky because of the high ceiling. They have some good video games too but not a lot. I don't normally play pool, but there's that too. The sound system is no big deal either. It's just a great big sports bar place that's not too high and right nearby. Give it a shot.

    Great Sportsbar
    popedonmega (23 reviews)

    The first thing that you notice when you walk in is the smell of cigarettes, but you quickly forget about that when you look up and see the massive TVs everywhere. This is a great spot to watch your favorite sporting event, especially on the weekend. Lots of trash talking going around b/c this place is usually filled with rabid fans. After the game, its still a great place to chill and play some pool or drink some cheap beer with your friends. Usually a younger crowd and dress is very casual - great place to hide from the wife on gameday!

    A guys' place
    dixiecrystal (57 reviews)
    3/03/2006

    This place has been popular for years and I'm not sure why except that it's the only large bar for games and pool around. Food is mediocre and it always smells sour. Dingy and dark. Most women will not appreciate it but all my guy friends love it.

    Reviews: 31

    odd feel
    Howard (31 reviews)
    1/13/2006

    large space with lots of games and activities - the place has an odd feel (lighting) and mix of people (old, young, yuppie, families), so although I have frequented many times over the years, it has never been a regular hangout. The food is marginal also.
