American Food

Big Sky Buckhead (Atlanta, GA)

During my trip to Atlanta, I came to the conclusion that Buckhead has an advantage over all major cities in the United States.  Where else can you find a mega mansion for $17.58?  That same mansion will be found in Los Angeles, New York, or Washington, D.C. for a $100,000,000.00.  That sucks.  The only disadvantage they have is the overall food scene that they have.  Most of Atlanta’s food is centered around soul-food.  Soul food is great, but if you live in an area where Shrimp and Grits are on every minute you tend to become immune to it.  I decided to go to this restaurant on the word of a fellow foodie, so I was excited to see what Big Sky had to offer.

Big Sky is located off of Cain Hills Place, and offers a contemporary eatery & bar featuring Latin and Asian inspired comfort food.  If you’re looking for a place to go to to watch your favorite sports team, then this is the place for you.  It’s a sports bar, and the interior is built as such.  Huge TV’s, a vibrant bar area, and high top tables.

During my visit to Big Sky Buckhead I was able to order two dishes.  The first dish was the Fried Chicken Benedict and the second being the breakfast tacos.  I’ll start off with the Fried Chicken Benedict.  It consisted of fresh sauteed spinach, grilled tomatoes, fried chicken breast, poached eggs, chipotle hollandaise sauce, and a homemade biscuit.  This dish had all of the ingredients and fixings of what would’ve been the perfect benedict.  Sadly, this dish was a disappointment.  The Fried Chicken tasted like it was baked after it was fried, in other words it was soggy, and the poached egg was overcooked.  The excitement of having a poached egg attached to any dish is the ability to watch the yolk drip when you cut into it.  The tomato was pretty good as it provided a little crunchiness to the dish, and the spinach was bland.  I had such high expectations for this dish, so therefore I expected much more.

The second dish that was ordered were the Chorizo breakfast tacos.  It consisted of cheddar cheese, avocado salsa, and pico de galo.  The dish also consisted of bacon but I substituted it for shrimp.  The tacos were pretty good and flavorful.  There’s not much wrong you can do with tacos, so my expectations weren’t as high.  The shrimp wasn’t too rubbery and was cooked well.  It had a buttery, smoky taste to it which worked well with the onion flavor of the pico de galo.

Overall, this restaurant is a pass.  Not a hard pass because I’m sure there maybe other things on the menu that you can order.  This place wasn’t my favorite, but if you decide to go let me know your thoughts.
