I last visited this place better than a decade ago maybe(???) with my brother and his wife. We stopped in for dessert, ordered the Carrot Cake. Loved.It. Came back this go around, went to the take out side, saw chicken wings and Carrot Cake! To go! Could not leave the oh-so-ridiculous parking lot without a bite. Fried chicken was delicious.Ate the Carrot Cake at home. After savoring the first bite of that cake, I remembered why I had to make that stop. Don't change a thing! (Except that ludicrous parking lot)

I have eaten at the OK so many times I can't even count and I have never been disappointed. It's nothing fancy, just a lot of comfort food that feels like mama is in the kitchen cooking. Many of the wait staff have been working there for years, and the vibe is like a 1950s diner. You may have to wait for up to an hour if you go during busy times, so it's best to avoid the weekend dinner or lunch times. They do have some booths and tables that will accommodate groups of 6-8 people, and there is an OK Take-Away section where you can get your food to go. They also have refrigerated/frozen items so that you can stock up for future OK cravings.

Couldn't decide on 3 or 4 on the rating. It's crowded especially in the waiting area where the redesign of the restaurant didn't take care of the problem. Once seated and food ordered, it seemed to take a while getting it. Vegetables were good and not over salted which a lot of places seem to do. Tuna salad had too much vinegar on it which I suppose depends on who is putting it on the lettuce on a daily basis. Turkey sandwich was good. Portions are good and prices seem reasonable. It did seem like the old cafe was better. There is a deli to take out food with a couple of bar stools if you wanted it eat it there. Service was friendly.

Visited this place today for lunch as I'd heard so many positive things about OK Cafe. Inside was really nice, comfy seating and clean. However, the food was really basic stuff and nothing special although it tasted ok. To summarize we all agreed the OK Cafe food was overpriced for what was served. Glad I visited with friends, but sadly won't be back.

Been here a lot of the years and the food is usually very good especially the sides. On this trip found the service to be a little sassy and the meatloaf less than satisfactory. My wife enjoyed her turkey with dressing and we both loved the sides of green beans, mashed potatoes and kernel corn. May give them another chance down the road as this is an ATL favorite for many.
