On my most recent trip to Atlanta, I had the chance to visit Delia’s Chicken and Sausage Stand. Like any other place that calls itself a “stand,” Delia’s is a little building with outdoor seating along the side of a very busy street. Don’t let the lack of indoor accommodations scare you away; this place is worth the trip!
Having placed our orders, we went outside to grab a table. The seating area is covered which means that you will not bake in the sun and if it is raining, you can still sit down at a table and eat-personally, I hate eating a meal in the car!The staff is friendly and were a pleasure to deal with-they even let me take photos!
Judging by the location of these seats, they must get pretty busy. These seats are near the parking area and in full sun during lunch.
By now you must be wondering what chicken sausage is. The short answer; ground chicken with spices and herbs which is cooked up and tastes a lot like an Italian sausage but isn’t nearly as greasy. We both chose to order The Chickie Philly Classic which is chicken sausage with onions and peppers with classic sauce (cheese sauce) and chipotle mayo on a hoagie roll.
However, I had mine without the cheese sauce-I just do not like cheese on my Philly sandwiches!The sandwiches are large and filling but those fries…my weakness for seasoned fries well documented. These were too good to pass up.
When I said the sandwiches were large, I wasn’t kidding! We were glad to have spent a couple hours walking on the Dolls Head Trail because it made eating a lunch this big seem less decadent!
After lunch, we headed over to Highland Row in search of a piece of furniture. While we were not successful in that search, we did find quite a few creepy doll heads and dolls that would have been a perfect fit for the Doll’s Head Trail if they allowed you to bring in new stuff. The rule is that you cannot bring in stuff, you can only use things found in the park to make displays for the trail.
She looks so innocent…
These were just so weird. The way they sat upside down…
These were just creepy. The one on the right almost looks like a real baby while the one in the middle looks like an alien in need of new eyes!
Since we are knee deep in the move, the house is on the market, everything I own is packed up and the garden has been tilled over and seeded with grass, I do not have much in the way of baking to share here-or gardening for that matter! There are still a few things about that trip to Atlanta that I will try to share with you. In the mean time, please keep your fingers crossed that this move goes quickly and smoothly!
