Lunch at the Ted
It was fun to walk around and think about some of the memories I made while I was a student and it was funny to see how other people are now making their own college memories. For a town that is known for being different, it’s funny how much Athens remains the same.
I saw artists trying show off their craft to anyone that walked by. I saw sorority girls who were taking advantage of an opportunity for a shopping spree with their parents in town. And I saw guys stumbling around who probably couldn’t remember anything about the previous night. It’s the same scene that has been taking place in Athens for the past few decades.
Fortunately, the dining scene in Downtown Athens is not one of the things that stays the same. There are constantly new restaurants popping up and quite a few have opened since I graduated – one of those being Ted’s Most Best. In the mood to try something new, we went to Ted’s Most Best for lunch.
The layout at Ted’s is very unique. The restaurant took over an old auto repair garage and they managed to keep the garage feel while creating a very cool atmosphere. You order at a counter and then one side of the restaurant is an open kitchen with a brick oven. The wall at the entrance to the restaurant features glass garage doors that open up to a large patio with outdoor seating. Because the weather was AMAZING on Saturday afternoon, we sat at table outside on the patio. It was a great set up.
The pizza had a thin crust and it was a good amount of toppings. I liked the flavor of the sauce and I also liked that there wasn’t too much sauce on it. There were also plenty of toppings that were evenly distributed to all four slices. Everything had good flavor, but I would have preferred it to cook in the oven for a couple more minutes. The cheese wasn’t quite as golden-brown as I normally cook it and I think a little more time in the oven would have made the crust and little more crispy, which I love in a pizza. In all though, they did a nice job.
We sat outside and enjoyed our food and the beautiful weather and remembered our great experiences in Athens. And it’s always fun to return and enjoy some new exciting experiences in Athens. Go Dawgs!
