Sometimes, your team wants to throw health foods and diets to the wind and chow down on good old fashioned greasy spoon meals. Not that salads, smoothies, fresh juices and so on can’t be involved in fun lunch catering, for example on a sunny, Friday afternoon in the office, but for our purposes today, they aren’t.
Today, we’re munching on Atlanta’s best greasy spoon restaurants to make for some extra fun lunch catering. Here they are (and get ready to drool).
Greasy spoon restaurants in Atlanta for fun lunch catering
Mix Indian grilled meats with sloppy curries, masala mashed potatoes, chutneys, tikkas, and kabobs and wrap it all up in warm naan bread with a side of Desi slaw. This Indian street food will knock your office’s socks off (in a good way).

Cameli’s might serve gourmet pizza, but we’d still consider it top of the fun lunch catering list. Order their Buffalo wings with hot sauce and ranch dip alongside a few of their infamous pizzas, throw in a brownie (or several) and there you have it. Best team lunch ever.
Meat by the pound with shareable sides like mac n’ cheese and grilled Texas corn—no one said greasy spoon restaurants couldn’t be the most deliciously appealing ones out there.

Sometimes fun lunch catering comes in the easily-transportable form of a boxed lunch. Try Festivals’ namesake Jerk Chicken Sandwich boxed lunch with its sloppy mango aioli, chips, and fruit salad.
The sloppy Q plate is G.C. BBQ’s 14-hour smoked pork with chipotle BBQ sauce and a side of homemade baked beans and slaw. Need we say more? Add it (or any of their BBQ meats) to a sandwich and call it a Friday.
Hobnob’s is your one-stop-shop for partiers looking for greasy spoon restaurants and fun lunch catering. They have low country shrimp n’ grits, buttermilk chicken tenders, jumbo chicken wings, cakes, sodas, you name it.
Get a hungry team together for this one. Pijiu Belly is Atlanta’s midtown Asian fusion greasy spoon. They have Thai tater tots, cream cheese wontons, kimchi fried rice, BBQ chicken sandwich trays, Asian spice fried pickles with Sriracha, and gyozas among so many other delicious treats.
Publik Draft House’s idea of a house burger with fries are two all-natural Allen Brothers beef patties, the usual toppings with a pickle and cajun fries. Yum. Add an order of Korean-style chicken wings with hot sauce and that’s what we call fun lunch catering.
This wouldn’t be a greasy spoon restaurant of Atlanta blog post if we didn’t mention an all-time classic, the super-stacked sandwich. In their boxed lunches that come with Zapps chips and a cookie, they’re serving up Sammy’s like the American (turkey, ham, American cheese, lettuce and tomatoes) on white French bread or the classic on rye (roast beef, corned beef, turkey, slaw and Thousand Island dressing).
When a restaurant’s menu starts with fried pickles dunked in chipotle ranch, you know its a greaser. Try their brisket platter with mac n’ cheese and coleslaw or their tractor pulled pork, pickle, coleslaw sliders platter. Nothing screams Friday fun lunch catering quite like The Smoke Ring.
Mouth watering yet? Stay hungry!
