Open since: 1998
Location: Georgia Diner is one block east of Interstate 85 on Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth
Hours: The restaurant is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year
Owners: Sisters Veena Bagga and Nazz Tucker have been in the restaurant industry for about 40 years and bought Georgia Diner six months after it opened in 1998. Prior to this venture, the sisters owned a Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Atmosphere: A pink stucco building gives Georgia Diner a unique look, setting it apart from the typical neutral-colored structures along Pleasant Hill Road. The unique atmosphere continues inside, with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling accented by the peachy-colored stucco walls decorated with black and white photographs. The restaurant offers booth and table seating with a larger dining area separated from a smaller, more intimate setting.
Menu: Patrons who enjoy a bevy of choices are in luck at Georgia Diner. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner 24 hours a day, diners can select from a smorgasbord of items, from Italian entrees and Greek dishes to all-American burgers and sandwiches. Georgia Diner also offers vegetarian selections and items for those watching their weight. California wines are served for $3.95 a glass.
Things you might not know: If you don't know it's there, you might miss the photograph of Bagga with Colonel Harland Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken. The picture is hanging by the cash register just as you walk into the restaurant. Georgia Diner also has a gift shop area where diners can purchase gemstone and sterling silver jewelry.
