Rafferty’s Restaurant & Bar (Athens, GA)

15 Huntington Road, Athens, GA 30606, USA, T: 706-613-0045

Rafferty’s is a classic American restaurant chain, although with a slight Southern twist. It has about 20 locations in Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Georgia. The menu is a combination of burgers, salads, sandwiches, and steaks. It presents itself as a mix of a steak house and sports bar.

I start with the Chicken Finger Filets ($6.29). I get them Original, which comes with a sweet and spicy sauce on the side (you can also have them tossed in a sauce). I continue with a Backyard BBQ Burger ($7.99), which includes smoked bacon, charcoal grilled sweet onion, and bbq sauce. I add “hand-cut French fries” (+$1.99). Both taste quite good, but they are heavy and lack any hint of subtlety.

VERDICT: 80/100
Rafferty’s belong to the large amorphous group of national chains like Applebee’s, Chili’s etc. Decent American food, nothing remarkable.
