Rick Tanner’s in Vickery

A few years ago I met a friend at Rick Tanner’s Bar & Grill in Vickery Village for breakfast; my initial reaction was one of distrust – a pub, known for its home-brewed beer, sandwiches and general bar food, had breakfast?

Rick Tanner's French ToastI was pleasantly surprised to find out that Tanner’s has a great breakfast! Mine consisted of bacon and French toast – both were delicious! There’s really something about good bacon. Plus, the coffee was always freshly brewed.

In 1986, after many years in the restaurant business with major chains, Rick Tanner created and began to grow a chicken rotisserie concept in Atlanta, Georgia. Soon after Rick opened his first location, he called up his longtime friend “CT” and together they grew Tanner’s into a successful concept. Now with Rick’s children, Nick and Alisa, they have taken the company to a whole new level.

With a menu featuring whole rotisserie chickens, world famous chicken fingers, ribs, sandwiches, large salads, homemade veggies and more, they have always insisted that all items be prepared fresh and from scratch.

I decided to try Tanner’s for lunch also, and was not disappointed at all. The burgers were great – grilled to juicy perfection. Having tasted a few grilled burgers over the years at various pubs in California, Florida, the Virgin Islands, New York, and Atlanta, it was nice to enjoy a good burger close to home. Tanner’s also offers a well-rounded bar and grill menu, too.

Tanner’s wants to provide the highest quality food and make a customer’s busy life a bit easier. Food is available to go and they also provide catering services.

Over the years Rick Tanner’s Bar & Grill has become a favorite, and it helps that the bacon is always perfectly crisp!
