Buckhead Diner Restaurant Review: Using neon, stainless steel, enamel and vinyl, designer Pat Kuleto gave this place a classic diner look. The signature appetizer, homemade potato chips with warm Maytag blue cheese, remains popular, although we think some newer starters give it a run for its money, such as the sweet potato soup. Buckhead Diner has always managed to work rock shrimp, a hard-to-find crustacean, into its menu, and the pair of tacos that they fill are light and delectable, acting as a main dish when paired with a salad. Veal meatloaf with celery mashed potatoes has been a standard since day one, and it's appropriate as wintertime comfort food. In summer, go with the grilled chicken paillard topped with arugula, split cherry tomatoes and medium diced potatoes. Banana cream pie is a mainstay dessert, but we opted for a peach custard with peaches that lacked flavor and ripeness. The wine list emphasizes American and southern hemisphere value-priced selections and frankly lacks all excitement.
