Home of one of my favorite sandwiches in the city, the Mad Italian - Elliott Street features sandwiches on a variety of rolls & feature fresh herbs. Don't let the dive bar vibe fool you. It's located just across the bridge from downtown in Castleberry Hills
Bottle Rockets & Crossbows – The address is in the name of the place, and I’ve been here a number of times, but my haphazard internal GPS still has trouble finding it. It’s Elliot Street Pub and down a dead end street, it’s nestled in a creepy corner of Castleberry Hills. It’s a tiny bar that takes pride in its obscurity. A kind of place with cups, a keg, and chalk board by the door that trusts the regulars on the honor system.
Cramped in this pint-sized bar shoulder to shoulder, It's more like a walk-in closet with a liquor permit. But the warmth is comforting, it’s like we’re in this together.
I’ve once seen the owners out in the street on a summer’s afternoon shooting bottle rockets at street signs, vermin, and each other. This is a good thing. Trust.
On another occasion, I’m informed this place has a basement. I felt like Pee Wee Herman finding out The Alamo does in fact have a basement! Down a confidential stairwell, in a dingy romper room with a full bar, an R&B band, and a crossbow propped in the corner. Brilliant.
This is a terrific place to take a date. You'll get points for knowing about something so cool, but maybe make a practice run the day before- you'll look like a clown if you get lost getting there.
Remember kids, tip well and tip often... they have a crossbow.
Hidden Gem – Great place to grab a sandwich and a beer! Shorter beer list, but enough to meet the needs of anyone into hops. You never know who you will meet here. The owners, Mike and Pete, are genuine and truly care about their regulars.
Best Sandwiches in Town – Nestled in Castleberry Hill, Elliot Street is a Cheers-like pub and deli that is haven-like for residents of the area, and a gem-to-be-discovered for people who have not yet encountered it. In a loft-like renovated building, Elliot Street offers great sandwiches and cold drinks. My favorite is the Turkey Slaw-wich. It is awesome! Also, the owners take into account both health and the environment, and only use fresh ingredients and shipped in daily breads (clearly, I have been there a lot to know that!.. ;). In regards to the environment, it is my understanding they only use recycled plateware as well.
If you like a laid-back place that offers sandwiches, or even if you are looking for a chill bar to kick back with some friends in the Atlanta area, definitely check this place out.
Studly sandwiches and a good-yet-simple beer list make this hidden Castleberry watering hole a place to call your own. – In Short
Tucked onto a side street of downtown 'hood Castleberry Hill, Elliott's is a hidden, pint-sized artist dive. Burly brothers Pete and Michael Jakob opened the bar in 2006 and live in the apartment upstairs. A choice beer selection and homemade sandwiches wrapped in wax paper ooze a vibe that is personal and heartwarming. Limited seating along the L-shaped bar help first-timers get to know each other while the surprisingly sweet biker-channeling owners entice you to come back.
