Athens-Clarke County

Who doesn’t get a little giddy at the thought of an Athens court appearance? Weekday jaunts to this hip college town are a great way to liven up the pathetically dull court schedule as well as enjoy some truly amazing lunchtime eats. In addition to the eclectic eateries and legendary soul food joints, there are also a couple culinary pioneers here generating national attention for their New American cuisine. All within walking distance of the courthouse.
