We know Atlanta has some great restaurants. But what many outsiders don’t know is that Cumming, along with most of Forsyth County, also has some fantastic places to eat. Whether it’s a cheap hole in the wall joint or a fancy, fine dining location, there are so many places to choose from within a short driving distance that you’ll almost never need to find yourself taking the longer Atlanta drive.
But where should you go?
Everyone has different dining tastes. Below are our best 5 restaurants that we feel have earned their place in the region, along with a host of additional ideas for any dining excursion.
Best Restaurants in Forsyth County
Let’s start with the “best” according to our team here at Nextgen. Our top recommendations throughout the entirety of Forsyth County include the following:
Socks Love Barbecue – Formerly known as Catering Kitchen, Socks Love Barbecue does not sacrifice in quality and flavor. This is a local favorite here in Cumming, and it does not disappoint. As locals, you probably know this restaurant well, but for visitors this is likely one of the must-try places for those that love BBQ.
Q Korean Steak House – Most steakhouses are worth a visit. But those that also offer a little bit of cultural flavor are often even better. With its house steak, along with a host of other flavors and meat preparations, Q is definitely worth at ry.
Baba’s Gyro and Kabob– It’s hard not to like a gyro, but thankfully Baba’s is a bit more than a “like.” They have a larger menu than other gyro places and unlike many places here in Cumming that are heavily focused on meat, they also have vegetarian and vegan options here for those that need it.
Rice Restaurant and Sushi Bar– A bit harder to find compared to other items on the list, Rice Restaurant and Sushi Bar is located up towards Coal Mountain. Folks, it’s good. Considering it’s so tucked away from Cumming proper, you would think that it is just a standard, decent place, but the sushi here (and other restaurant items) are some of the best in the region. Worth the drive.
The Burger Stop –There are so many good burger places in Cumming it’s hard to really rate them at all. Each one has its great burgers and it’s good burgers. But we have to give the nod to The Burger Stop. The Burgers are good, the wings are good, the people are good, the prices are great, and it’s a good place to get food fast.
These aren’t the only great restaurants here in Cumming, but they are the ones that deserve recognition according to our team.
Other Restaurants to Consider
We don’t want to leave anyone out. If you believe your restaurant deserves a place here, we’re happy to try it out ourselves as well. But the following restaurants are also some of our top ones in the area, and we encourage you to give them a try when you decide you’d like something new:
Locals definitely have their option of different cuisines here, so chances are you can find a restaurant or two that has the perfect meal for your taste buds. If you’re a customer (current or future) and you want to give us a recommendation of a place to try, we encourage you to do so. Sometimes, the secret to loving a restaurant is just finding that one food item that makes it taste great for you. Hope this helped you find some grub. If you need a pest control company in Cumming give us a call 🙂
We’ve all had to make changes and sacrifices as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 has changed a lot about how we interact, how we explore, and what type of activities we engage in.
Everyone is saying it’s a “different world,” but what they mean is not that everything in the world is over. Rather, what it means is that we now have an opportunity to consider and change what we engage in.
New Activities, New Memories in Cumming, GA
Here at Nextgen Pest Solutions, we wanted to take the time to provide some ideas for how we can all adjust our free time in this new pandemic. While some of our past favorite activities may be more challenging, there are still so many things to do locally that we may find that there are things that we enjoy even more than what we used to do in the past.
The following are some things to do in Cumming and Forsyth County that are safer during the pandemic, allowing for things like social distancing and reduced risk of COVID-19. Once thing you’ll notice is that many of these are outdoors activities. As of this writing, current research into the coronavirus states that it is less likely to spread outdoors because of airflow and UV rays.
Luckily, Forsyth County has some amazing activities that can be enjoyed outdoors, along with a few indoors activities that may also be worth your time.
Activities in Forsyth County
Sawnee Mountain Preserve – Hiking is perhaps one of the best activities you can enjoy. It’s great for your heart and lungs. It allows for social distancing. It is budget friendly and it is fun for all ages. The Sawnee Mountain Preserve is easily one of the best places to hike in Cumming and the rest of the county, offering amazing views, a good walk, and a chance to enjoy the great outdoors.
U-Pick Farms – Like Warbington Farm. Scientists believe that COVID-19 doesn’t survive well on surfaces, and is damaged by the sun’s rays. That means that some activities that people reduced in the early stages may be safe again, including U-Pick farms, where you can pick your own amazing fruits, avoid grocery stores, and have a wonderful day outside together.
Parks – There are so many great parks in Cumming and the nearby areas, including Fowler Park, Central Park, Mary Alice Park, and so many others. The parks here are great, and rarely are any of them crowded which makes it an excellent opportunity to feel like you’re around people, get some exercise, and have fun as a family.
Some Escape Rooms – There are several escape rooms peppered throughout Forsyth County. Keystone Escape Rooms is nearby. Escape rooms have become so much fun for friends and family, and it’s no wonder they have become so popular in the last few years. Escape rooms are also private, and many have very effective COVID-19 protection practices making them safe(r) than other indoor activities.
Paintball Atlanta – Okay, technically it is over in Alpharetta and not here in Forsyth, but it’s so close we made an exception: Paintball Atlanta. Paintball is a fun activity to do as a group. It takes place mostly outdoors and specifically involves wearing a large mask while you play, decreasing COVID risk while improving safety within the game.
Other Options: Lake Lanier, and More
There are so many activities around Forsyth County (and nearby). Lake Lanier, for example, which we could have included on this list but chose to exclude because not all of it is within the county, is a great place to enjoy the outdoors. But it can also be crowded, so try to find a secluded spot when you’re enjoying your time here or come during off hours for more space to roam and explore.
Stay Home to Stay Safe
While all of these activities are enjoyable for you and the family, the safest place you can be is at home. At Nextgen Pest Solutions, we’re here to make sure that staying home is both safer and more comfortable for your family, with comprehensive and affordable pest control Cumming For more information, please contact us today.
Our Recent Sponsorships and Associations in Cumming, GA
Nextgen Pest Solutions is a community oriented pest control company in Cumming, GA. We know our customers have their choice in pest control companies. We want them to know, and feel, that when they choose to use Nextgen Pest Solutions, they’re contributing to a company that gives something back.
We do this in several ways – hiring and training veterans of the armed forces (to give back to those that served), investing in local businesses, volunteering – but one way that we love giving back is by sponsoring and partnering with many local organizations that do great work here in the city.
Some of Our Cumming/Forsyth Sponsorships
There are so many great organizations here in Cumming. Our hope is that by sponsoring some of these companies, they can continue to bring value to the community and help this city continue to grow and solidify what made us want to be a part of it in the first place. As of this writing, some of our most recent sponsorships include:
One of our favorite organizations here in Cumming is the Forsyth County Women’s Club. Even though this is a very community focused city, we know how hard it is to make new friends, find people to connect with, and ultimately enjoy new experiences. That’s why we love the FCWC. It’s mission, it’s people – it is a great way to make sure that we all feel that support that makes so many of us live happier, more fulfilling lives.
If you live here, you’ve probably gone to at least an event or two at the Cumming Fairgrounds. Perhaps you’ve been to the Christmas Parade Festival, the July 4th Celebration, a rodeo, or something else. So much happens here, which is why we’re so glad that we were able to sponsor the Cumming Fairground and help it continue to bring back joy to the city and its neighbors.
The role that Forsyth County Schools play not only in teaching our students, but on helping bring activities and enjoyment to young lives cannot be ignored. FCS doesn’t have many sponsorship opportunities, so we wanted to give thanks to those that worked here by offering employees a chance to enjoy discounts on our pest services as a thank you for what they do for us here in the city.
Finally, of course we knew from the beginning that we had to be a member of the Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce. It’s such an important organization, especially in cities like Cumming that may not have the local strength of nearby Atlanta, and the work that they do has been fantastic for the city as a whole. We’ve been a member of the Chamber of Commerce for years, and plan to continue to be an active one in the future.
Nextgen Pest Solutions - Cumming Pest Control That Cares
In our opinion, it’s not enough to simply offer a service to the community. It’s important for the community to know that we’re also someone that gives right back. Whether it’s through local hires, volunteering, or sponsorships and discounts to great organizations, we plan to continue to show Cumming, Georgia the love and respect that it has shown us.
