Here are some of my favorites in Metro Atlanta:
Son's Place in Inman Park - caffeteria style food- they serve breakfast and lunch only
The Collonade on Cheshire Bridge - a long time favorite in Atlanta
Eat's on Ponce De Leon - yummy collard greens, jerk chicken, black beans and rice - cheap too!
OK Cafe on West Paces - very yummy for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Whitehouse on Peachtree in Buckhead - a must for breakfast!
Southcity Kitchen in Midtown is a higher-end restaurant
Silver Skillet in Midtown on Monroe Dr - meat and three - delicious!
Thumbs Up Diner on Edgewood has hearty breakfasts but long lines if you don't get there early!

I have the Silver Skillet on my list and have also wanted to try the West Egg on Howell Mill.
Here>>>
West Egg Cafe - Atlanta, GA, 30318 - Citysearch

The menu sounds 'Nouvelle South' for lack of a better descriptor--'lemon poppy seed french toast'.

I think the Horseradish Grill was on Rachel Ray's tour of Atlanta.

We enjoyed a detailed tour of the city by trolley, a wonderful ghost tour (the one associated with a former producer/director of "Scariest Places on Earth", ask for tour guide Dawn) and spent a day at Tybee Island. The history of this city is intriguing and fascinating. The homes,buildings, squares and gardens were just too beautiful. My kids had a blast visiting all of the little boutiques and gift shops. The food was amazing! I had the best pralines in the world at a sweet store that I couldn't get my kids out of. I was less than impressed with one famous brewery though. The beers were all warm and the food was not so great. Oh well, not everything can be perfect but our trip was pretty darn close to it. We can't wait to go back! The beach at Tybee Island was wonderful and my kids couldn't get enough of the waves. What a beautiful place. I am well into the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" as I didn't have a chance to read it before our trip but couldn't wait to get home and read it after hearing so much about it while in Savannah.

Thanks so much for all of the great suggestions for authentic southern food. My stomach is growling and mouth watering just reading about all of them.

If you haven't been to Charleston, SC yet, you'll love it. It's even more beautiful than Savannah.

St. Augustine, FL is worth a trip, too.

I agree...Charlestown and St Augustine are definitely places to put on your "to-do" list. I have been to both...but it has been awhile since St Augustine.

I have never been to Savannah, but I may try to get to it when I am there this summer. My husband says...who has been to both Savannah and Charleston...charleston definitely has more of a vibe. I love Charlestown. The historical areas are gorgeous. I love the low country with the moss covered oaks.

I agree with liking historical areas of Charleston and St. Augustine. Anyone visiting St. Augustine be sure and take or rent bicycles (and bring a good cable lock) as there are many convenient alleyways and places to explore by bike. I have been to Savannah. Try the slow country boil while visiting the Tybee Island area. The historic tourist area in Savannah is smallish, but do go have a meal and a cold cup of sweet tea after strolling around. If you smell a yucky odor in the air it might be the paper mill way off near the river - it will pass (~:
