Matt’s Take

photoEvery community needs a gathering place. A spot somewhere in the center of town to take a load off, have a couple of beers and watch the game. The Local No. 7 is that spot for the people of Tucker. Located on Main St. directly across from the train tracks, The Local No. 7 has the perfect balance of sports bar and family dining.

Walking into The Local No. 7 gives you the classic feel of the local town bar. Wooden booths, high top tables and a long bar gives patrons plenty of seating within view of one of several flat screen TVs playing whatever sports game is currently on. The bartender stands in front of an extensive selection of bottled beer and rotating drafts waiting to pour you a glass and a small stage in the opposite corner is waiting for the next local act to play their new song or lead the bar in a sing-a-long of your favorite classics.

The menu stays pretty close to traditional bar food. A wide variety of wings, burgers, hotdogs, cold-cut sandwiches and plenty of fried sides leaves your mouth watering before you are able to order. After getting the rundown of the popular menu items I set my sights on the Cannonball Express: A half-pound Angus burger served with grilled jalapenos, jack cheese and their own house-made 7 Sauce. This burger is STACKED. A delicious tower of meat, chesses, peppers and garden veggies sits next to my tots. If you don’t like spice, this burger isn’t your cup of tea. Plenty of jalapenos lay on top of melted pepper jack cheese to ready to kick you right in the taste buds.

Looking for something a little more extreme? Try the John Henry Challenge. This thing is a beast of a burger. The John Henry contains 7 half-pound burgers, 7 slices of cheese, bacon and a fried egg. If you are able to finish this burger, and the mountain of fries surrounding it, in under an hour it’s free. If you are up for the challenge, you must call ahead to schedule an appointment so the kitchen can prepare.

The Local No. 7 has events and drink specials throughout the week for the community. Come out for live music, trivia, kids dinner specials, and every sports game you can think of. Whether you are a local, or just passing through looking for some delicious bar food, The Local No. 7 is the perfect pub.

Barry’s Take

IMG_2111The Local 7 is a nice little tavern/restaurant on Main Street in Tucker, not far off I-285. During recent years, the few blocks that make up Main Street went through a complete renovation and the area is now bustling with restaurants, independent shops as well as a weekly Farmers Market.

A local gathering spot is important to bring the community together and the Local 7 does a good job of offering a comfortable setting to get to know the locals. Inside you’ll find a very casual, relaxed atmosphere with better than normal bar food. They tend to get a lot of traffic from local businesses during the weekdays. It is family friendly by day and a nighttime gathering point for adults of all ages.

I thoroughly enjoyed a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with a pickle on Texas toast with lots of fries. The sandwich was thick and made a nice, filling lunch. Just a little messy, which is how good BBQ should be. Next time I would like to try one of their original hamburgers. Their Tater Tots are also very popular with the regulars.

The Local 7 looks like a fun place to hang out during the weekends and mingle with the locals. They have a comfortable outdoor seating area where you may have to talk a bit louder when the trains coming rolling past every 30 minutes or so. Bonus Points for the bench at the front entrance with the repurposed tailgate from an old Ford Truck.

The Local No. 7 is located at 2316 Main St, Tucker, GA 30084
