Spirits Tavern

Back to our time in GA. Saturday was nephew's wrestling day. Apparently wrestling is a day long event so my brother suggested we spend the morning relaxing and then get some lunch before heading to the afternoon matches. So we went to Spirits Tavern. They are sort of like Burghers or Burgatory here in Pittsburgh: burgers with your choice of certified Angus beef, ground turkey, veggie patty, Springer Mountain Farms chicken, or White Oak Pastures grass fed beef. There also are a fish sandwich, crab roll, and several hot dog creations plus appetizers and soup/chili/salads.

We got there a bit after they opened for lunch and got a table next to the window.
SP really wanted a Bloody Mary. He liked it. I tried a sip and all it did was confirm that I really dislike this beverage. I stuck with my fresh iced tea.
SP ordered the Crab Roll (lump crab salad, tomato, bacon, avocado corn salsa, hoagie roll with a side of Sweet Southern Coleslaw). He said it was delicious.
I chose the Rude Awakening sandwich (cage free fried egg, white American cheese, hickory smoked
bacon, with a crispy hash brown). I chose chicken and tater tots for my side. I loved this sandwich. Really good. And the tots - oh my gosh the tots were so darn yummy. SP kept stealing them off my plate but that was OK because this was a lot of food for me for lunch. I ate half my sandwich and then ended up eating the insides of the second half (sorry delicious bun but you were just too filling) and almost finished the tots.
Maybe I should have chosen a different side since there was a hash brown on my sandwich. But if I had to choose again, I'd get the same sandwich and tots.

Spirits Tavern must be a popular place because we tried to go there the night we arrived but the wait was over an hour. It filled up with the lunch crowd by noon, so we were glad we got there a little early. Our server was friendly and answered my questions but somewhat sadly, she did forget our fried green tomatoes appetizer. I say somewhat sadly because when our food arrived and we saw how huge the sandwiches were, we figured we didn't need an appetizer as well. There was no way we could have eaten an appetizer as well. Maybe at dinner time, but not lunch time.

Next time we visit my brother, we'll be sure to stop by Spirits. I want more tater tots!
