Soul Food and Down Ho
Even with its specific commercial and residential areas, Mableton is still a community with a lively culinary scene. Varied dining choices line the main thoroughfare, with a selection of establishments sprinkled throughout the community's smaller retail districts. Several down-home cooking and soul food joints are among the town's best, including Fatt Dapp's Smokehouse, Trina's Soul Kitchen, and Jr. Crickets, where Deep South traditions are alive and well. Pearl's Country Kitchen and Jolly Joe's Cafe serve up mouthwatering, southern comfort foods to satisfy any appetite, but if it is biscuits and gravy you are craving, Martin's Restaurant always hits the spot.
Silver Comet Trail
Despite its rapid growth, Mableton expertly balances urban living and natural beauty. The city's public parks are gorgeous, open spaces, and much of the region's natural woodlands, populated by mature evergreen and hardwood trees, remain untouched. Miles of hiking, walking, and biking trails wind through this landscape with the Silver Comet traversing the breadth of the city north of Veteran's Memorial Highway. More than 60 miles from state to finish, the paved trail runs from Smyrna on the west to the eastern state line. You will spy the occasional horseback rider here, but walkers, cyclists, rollerbladers, hikers, and dog walkers are much more common.
