The Atlas, A Local's Favorite Spot – As an Iowa City local, The Atlas is my favorite lunch spot. I love their lunch special--a you pick two-- I like the Mixed Greens with a Jamaican Chicken wrap. Tasty, flavorful, and light. They always have a large selection of specials, even at lunch, if you want to mix things up. And if you want a splurge on calories, their molten centered chocolate cake is to die for. I go every year on my birthday, just for that.
I've also had a number of dinners at the Atlas. It never disappoints. They have everything from Blackened Catfish to a decadent four cheese Mac and Cheese. There are also lots of steak and pork options for the meat lovers in your life. The Atlas is located in the hub of downtown, right around the corner from my favorite book store, Prairie Lights, where you can catch a reading almost any night of the week. It is also close to several theaters like the Englert, Riverside, and Hancher. If you're a local, or just in for a few nights, The Atlas is one you shouldn't miss.
The price point at lunch is about $10 and at dinner $15-25.
