Things to do in Athens
Walk up food truck. Fried or boiled seafood goodies. Catfish, shrimp, crawfish in season,etc. Some pretty good gumbo available sometimes. Good, fresh shrimp fried or boiled. Get the boiled spiced how you like it and served with potatoes and corn on the cob low country boil style. Sit outside under cover or inside if you want. A popular spot in Athens with many regulars. Worth a visit.

Excellent catfish and nice portion choices. Baked potato was hot, nice sides of cold slaw, tomato relish, onion and best hush puppies around. Fast and good attentive service.The building is not maintained. Old and ugly, but we came for the food as we were driving home from our road trip. Second stop here in the last year. You can get it to go if you aren't there for all you can eat. Good prices.
We were on a tight schedule and needed someplace close to our hotel that was open late. This place was right down the block, so we stopped and read the posted hours - the lobby was open until 10:00 PM and the drive-through until 10:30 PM. We showed up at the drive-through at 10:15 and nobody was listening. We went inside and nobody was there. We yelled a bit and a teenage girl came out from the back and said they were closed, despite the fact they were supposed to be open. Whoever was supposed to be managing that night needs to be fired. This was the evening of Sunday, September 29th.
