stopped for lunch here today, first time here, and while the place was nice enough, not impressed with the customer service: I am standing right by the register and no one asks me anything, so I ask for a menu since I don't see any, and was told to hold (which is not an issue), she assists other customers already seated and then FORGETS to give me a menu, so after standing a while and she's back and forth and around from the register, she asks if I've been helped, I said no, she asks what would I like, I say well I don't know yet because I haven't seen what's on the menu, she gets a little annoyed look on her face and said she didn't know I needed one (now how is that possible when I've been the only one standing at the cashier counter for quite a few minutes, with nothing in my hand? and why no apology at this point instead of the sour/annoyed face?), I order, and am given no direction after she charges my card, so now I have to actually ask if she wants me to wait there or where do people with take out orders usually wait for the food, so she points me to the bar, then when the food comes, I double check on my way out if she had put a fork in the bag and sure enough she had not. So, forgot me, forgot my menu, forgot my eating utensils, and no smile and no apology. North River Tavern down the road never gives me that sort of service...just as a comparison...too many options out there for anyone to dish out bad customer service. Also, it wasn't just me, I noted other people (males) who came in and had to ask where to sit for someone to acknowledge them standing there, and instead of just being shown a seat were told they can sit "wherever." One guy joked about sitting exactly where he was standing (I am sure it was a subtle hint that "wherever" is not an appropriate response) and another group just didn't move off at all after being told that, which forced whichever waitress was addressing them to show them to a seat. I don't know if it's just that they are only use to regulars but I had time to notice all of that because of how long I had to wait just for a menu. My first and last time at your cafe...
Awesome Food! Awesome Waitstaff! – Have never had a bad meal here! great to bring customers to! If you can pry yourself away from ordering the wings again, try the Grouper sandwich which is unbelieveable. Fresh, huge and tasty! They never try to pass off tilapia or catfish on you. The waitstaff is always gracious, upbeat and service oriented! Yeah for keeping this North Springs (in the good ole' days) establishment running!
Unbeatable Spicy Wings – Three dollar cafe offers an unbeatable spicy wngs.Perk up by booze,games and friends as a week ender.
Best wings I've ever had – I first started going to this place in 1985 and I've always thought the entire menu looks great. But the fact is, I've never had anything but the wings. Holy cow these wings are awesome. The perfect size, crispy and coated in the best wing sauce ever. I used to live near the Sandy Springs location and had to have wings at least once a week, often twice. Now I live two hours away and miss them really bad.
BEST WINGS IN TOWN – Three dollar cafe wings are head and shoulders above any wings in the city. They are one of the few places that actually understand what an extra crispy wing is. It means its crispy but still swimming in the best how wing sauce around. Their blue cheese is unmatched as well. I have been looking for a better wing joint for going on 10 years now and have finally decided that it just cant be done. The TDC grilled chicken sandwich with wing sauce is great as well.
best reuben in town – they had the best reubens and their cream corn casserole was to die for I used to live in atlanta and I MISS this place for those 2 food items!
One of the best spots in the burbs to down a beer and catch the game. – The Scene
The multitude of beer available serves as a theme for the restaurant's interior. Next to the televised sports games, however, beer is the sideshow. Locals come here to relax with their friends, while out-of-towners will find the low-key vibe an inviting way to spend the afternoon or evening.
The wings, a Three Dollar Cafe favorite, are meaty and fairly spicy. Other standard nibblers like mozzarella cheese sticks and fried mushrooms with horseradish sauce go great with beer and the game. Jumbo sized burgers and lighter options like the turkey and Cajun chicken wraps make a great mid-afternoon meal.
