At first glance, Cuban cuisine may not be the first thing to come to mind when you move to Ellijay, but the Country Corner Kitchen serves up just about the best Cuban sandwiches in northern Georgia. This modest "hole-in-the-wall" eatery also boasts a huge breakfast menu and dozens of fresh-made dishes, as well as some of the best burgers around.
At Shane's Rib Shack, diners say that the smoked chicken is so tender and tasty that no sauce is needed and they would be right. This is a chain restaurant that delivers BBQ like it is a locally-owned BBQ joint. Along with generous portions of ribs, chicken, Brunswick stew, and a whole heaping selection of sides, Shane's serves up a quirky atmosphere with its off the wall décor and loud country music.
Hot dogs and hamburgers are the epitome of American cuisine and in Ellijay, nobody does them better than Chili Dog on Industrial Boulevard. Chili Dog serves up insanely good hot dogs and burgers of all varieties and arguably the best fries and shakes in Gilmer County. Top it off with an excellent breakfast menu and Chili Dog is a great place to visit any time of day.
At Mucho Kaliente Mexican Restaurant in East Ellijay, you can enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine at very affordable prices. The menu is packed with all of your south-of-the-border favorites, including enchiladas, fajitas, chimichanga, nachos, and more. Also available is a generous margarita selection and the service and atmosphere are equally as genuine.
Surprisingly, East Ellijay has one of the best Chinese restaurants in the county with Happy Family II. This small, comfortable restaurant serves up excellent, made-to-order dishes in the American-Chinese style. The staff is friendly and the service is as excellent as its menu of delicious dishes. The chef can even accommodate every special dietary need upon request.
The Cantaberry Restaurant on River Street is one of the best places to enjoy a fresh, steaming mug of joe and slice of homemade pie or cake. But, don't let that stop you from trying the rest of the menu. From its selection of homemade soups to its delicious sandwiches and salads, the Cantaberry Restaurant specializes in serving fresh-made diner classics. The tomato basil soup is an all-time customer favorite.
