To all my of sausage-eating, beer-drinking comrades: You haven’t lived until you’ve tried Banger’s.
It’s one of the busiest spots on Rainey Street, and for more reasons than you’d think.
Their chef really knows his stuff.
Apart from focusing on the freshest ingredients, most innovative sausages, and having shockingly excellent vegetarian items, Banger’s also boasts regular live music, and a dog-run. (Yes! It’s practically a miniature dog park!)
The menu’s focus on the best possible ingredients at the peak of freshness allows them to rotate things, and mix up the offerings.
The bread, meat, and produce are always top-notch, and though I’ve eaten my way through an alarming amount of their menu, I have a hard time finding a fave, but trust me when I say that I wouldn’t miss their shrimp-n-grits inspired sausage. In fact, I’d say their focus is very clearly Southern, and they do it well.

Did I mention that just about, if not everything is made in-house? They operate a bit of a deli-counter set up where you can take uncooked sausages and deli pickles home!
They even have dessert. (And an incredible one at that. It’s not easy to get me on sweets.)
Now, I wouldn’t be able to complete this post without mentioning one of Banger’s arguably greatest draws: The enormous beer list! I’ve never seen so many taps in my life! From hard to find craft beer to their weekend offerings of a ‘Man-mosa’ (it’s pretty much a pitcher of mimosa, which who wouldn’t love?) they have something for everyone, and yes, they do a decent wine list as well. Grab some friends on a sunny day, and head out to their impressively large patio for music, bites, and far too many foamy, alcoholic beverages. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
