When SR Homes considers a new community, it also examines the area’s school system, local culture and popular destinations including recreation, shopping and dining options. For example, Watkinsville, Georgia serves as the Oconee County seat and offers the ultimate in small-town charm without sacrificing the conveniences of living in a major city.
Residents of this “historic heartland” enjoy a plethora of both locally owned and major dining options. Check out some of the best restaurants to enjoy near Watkinsville:
Ask any local where to grab a cup of Joe, and most will suggest Jittery Joe’s, a hip coffeehouse chain serving micro-roasted brews from around the world, as well as baked goods. Based in Athens, Georgia, Jittery Joe’s believes your cup of coffee is only as good as the beans they roast daily, and they want to make sure you receive the very best.
A lunch and dinner destination and local favorite, Chop & Hops offers a rustic atmosphere in the center of Watkinsville. Celebrating over 10 years in business, Chop & Hops features a varied menu with juicy burgers, handcrafted cocktails and tasty seafood.
Located off Greensboro Highway, The Traveling Hobo Cafe is another terrific option for delicious food. A hole-in-the-wall spot, locals enjoy the customizable menu options and build-your-burger feature, as well as Po’Boy sandwiches, salads and so much more!
Wrap up the workday with a glass of wine and classic Italian cuisine at Martino’s Italian Restaurant.
