FOOD REVIEW: Marietta Diner, Marietta GA

FOOD REVIEW: Marietta Diner, Marietta GA

We’ve had Marietta Diner on our radar for quite some time. This Saturday night it was COLD, COLD , COLD and I was happy to find a parking place close but our troubles were not over.

The large venue and frigid conditions make it the perfect place to test the skills of Texas Roadhouse master meat cutters from six states, including Georgia. The competition will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

The meat cutters will showcase their skills during a timed "cut-off," during which each individual receives 50 pounds of beef consisting of two top-butts, two tenderloins and one rib loin.
