Manuel’s Tavern is a Georgia political institution. It’s generally known as a hangout for those from left leaning political flavors, but Ron Paul meetups have found a stable home there more recently as well.
Manuel Maloof used to run DeKalb county and much of the state of Georgia’s Democratic machine from the bar. It was THE smoke filled room for Atlanta for a generation. It’s a living part of history.
Manuel is gone, but Manuel’s is 56 today. Per their facebook page:
In celebration we have our very simple but much loved special going back to our formative days. Your choice of a double cheeseburger or two hot dogs with fries or tots for $4.95. This special will run today through Thursday. Many thanks to all of you. Because of you, Manuel’s is blessed to a year older.
If you’re in the neighborhood, stop in and pay them a visit this week.
