Unlike most bars uptown, The Pigskin totes its food just as much as its nightlife. The drink specials are only part of the deal, the grill makes a variety of foods to go along with its football theme. Recently renovated, Pigskin offers an all new menu with better-than-average bar foods — barbecue ribs and fish among them. Pigskin’s main specialty is barbecue, though it has a large choice of other bar food. The backbone of its menu, of course, are a variety of burgers.
Though it has almost no online presence, the Burrito Buggy has solidified is niche in Athens as one of the most well-known places to come and eat. Die-hard food buggy fans swear by it, and thousands have flocked to its Facebook fan page. The little cart even generated a movement of upset customers when its old owner sold it, leaving the future of the buggy in doubt. Needless to say, the buggy is back on the streets today, selling burritos at all hours. It’s one of the first questions alumni ask me…”Is the buggy still there?”
