We are still in Atlanta, GA checking out the amazing raw food joints. On today's show we have the founder of R.Thomas Deluxe Grill restaurant in the heart of Atlanta that is open 24 hours and has a good selection of raw food items on the menu.
The founder Richard B. Thomas has been involved in the fast food industry for many years. He was a president for Kentucky Fried Chicken and he is the actual founder of Bojangles. After he retired he was board so he decided to open up R. Thomas Deluxe Grill. The original idea was for it to be a funky burger joint. After losing the keys on opening day the place was packed late at night so he decided to make it a 24-hour grill.
Eventually they started offering fresh carrot juice alongside the burgers. After a meeting with author of The Body Ecology Diet, Donna Gates, they expanded their menu to include raw foods and a wide variety of other foods.
"We treat carnivores and vegetarians with equal respect" says R, but it is more than just that. High-quality ingredients: cold pressed organic oils for cooking and dressings, fresh produce, homegrown herbs from our garden, local organic honey and bee pollen, organic grains, ocean vegetables, free-range chicken, organic-range eggs, natural-range beef and organic salmon, wild-caught tuna, powerful superfoods like kefir and raw cultured vegetables are the cornerstones of a menu that honors everyone's food choices.
I highly suggest people check out this place when you are in the Atlanta area. Their website is
