Folk Art Restaurant Review

: Rough and somewhat stylishly rustic, Folk Art has a few pieces of work one could describe thus, but the phrase is designed to apply to the food, which owner Jason Hill, who also owns Wisteria on the other end of the little strip, views as simple comfort fare. Just like folk art is the house-made pimento cheese served with saltine crackers, for instance, which is good atop the double-patty burger, especially if ordered rare. Turkey, lamb and veggie are additional burger options. For brunch, we enjoy the fried chicken on biscuit, although the kitchen's definition of biscuit is rather odd --- a flat, cakey bread that, while tasty, seems quite un-biscuit-like. Dessert is either a flourless chocolate torte or whatever cupcake happens to be available. A short wine list offers decent selections, but the beer line-up is much more interesting. So are the craft sodas.

Folk Art Atlanta prides itself with horrible service!

We ate here for a late brunch on Saturday and had bad customer service. I ordered the huevos rancheros and due to the egg shortage, I couldn't order egg whites. That was fine, so I instructed the waitress to please tell the chef to fry the egg hard, so I can cut out the yolk and eat the egg whites. My husband ordered the muffaletta with a side cucumber and avocado salad. We also ordered some cocktails and benignets. We finished our benignets, but no one bussed our table to remove the dirty plates. Our food arrives, and I cut open my egg to remove the yolk, but it oozes out all over my huevos rancheros. My husband offered me some of his food and I took a bite of the cucumber and avocado salad. I bit into inedible avocado pit and stems! Apparently, the waitress did us a favor and removed the charge of the eggs from my plate. I asked to speak to the manager, and I explained to him all the issues regarding the service, food preferences, etc. but he didn’t do anything.
