I have food allergies and they have so many options for me! They even have little stickers in front of food that says if it's Dairy Free, Gluten Free etc. Hands down, they have the best prepackaged ground turkey I have ever had. It lasts for at least a week in the fridge. Everything is organic and fresh. The best spaghetti squash I have ever had came from this store. Most of the time the staff are friendly and helpful.

Unless you're just a fan of several-days-old bread, or veggies cooked all day or with fatback, this Whole Foods beats every grocery chain, incl. it's own, hands down! There is parking both underground & above ground, so I dont understand the complaint someone made about parking, unless he was unaware of the underground option. As far as folks being "richie rich", I didnt see printouts of all the customers bank acct's but I shop there when I'm in Buckhead, and I made less than $20k last year. As for the food, I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the FOUR serve-yourself food bars. The salads, casseroles, veggie dishes, meats were fresher than at ANY other stores, and FAR more innovative in their culinary options. I cant even stand the site of the heavily mayo'd casseroles & salads at Kroger/Publix. They seem to only know about mayo, salt, pepper and A-1 at those stores. This WF must have had 10 different types of chicken! For every type of meat or veggie, there was roasted, baked,Italian, Asian, Mexican, Pastas, Tacos, rich or light, spicy or mild, ...a variety of herbs, spices. And the OMG dessert bar was too tempting! I got a wealth of info from one of their wine staff about the Saki's, so I could buy the right ones for two Saki-loving visitors. WF is up there in price, but Publix is more expensive than WF or Kroger for most of the specialty foods like organic, or frozen vegetarian items. I LOVE this WHOLE FOODS, even more than the other WF's.

Yes, parking sucks and the richie rich clientele are not pedestrian friendly in the parking lot. The staff is so diverse that many of them are English challenged. I refuse to go there anymore due to purchasing expired products 3 different times. I thought it was their job to check expiration dates, not mine to discover once I get the item home. I have a feeling they pay their employees so very little judging from the quality of their customer service skills. For as much as you pay, you should receive better customer service and be assured that products are fresh and not expired.

We like this store. It is a relatively new construction. The store is nice and clean. Their fresh flower section is great-many beautiful choices. Fruit yogurt is great. Organic strawberries are delicious. Parking could be a problem.

Their folks in the meat department are like old-time butchers I use to deal with in NYC. Terrific. They know their cuts and they can guide you on what to buy, how much, and how to prepare if you've questions. Scott was particularly helpful during last holiday season . . . . The prime rib roast was a hit!

... watch out for Buckhead soccer mom types talking on their cells and whizzing through the parking lot at 30MPH. They are oblivious to anyone else on the street. Also the place is full of snooty Buckhead women who think they are above everyone else. All in all, it makes for a bad shopping experience at this particular location.
