Three Dollar Cafe Opens in Peachtree Corners

The popular eatery, with a number of locations in the metro area, has just opened its doors in Gwinnett County's newest city.

If you've been in the metro area for awhile, you're bound to be familiar with the Three Dollar Cafe restaurants.

Established in 1983, the locally owned and operated business has locations in Dunwoody, Alpharetta, Lawrenceville and Marietta to name a few. And owner Won Woo decided Peachtree Corners was the ideal place to add his ninth restaurant.

Three Dollar Cafe's newest restaurant opened Feb. 2 and is located in the Dick's Sporting Goods shopping center on S.R. 141 near the Holcomb Bridge Road intersection.

The revamped shopping center has attracted several restaurants including Corner Bakery and Cheeseburger Bobby's.

But unlike the others, Three Dollar Cafe features a full bar, 13 big screened TVs and a menu that not only includes its signature hot wings, but eight different burger choices, nine varieties of sandwiches and six entrees.

It's all served up in a sports-themed restaurant with seating to accommodate about 150 or so. The owner's son, Joseph Woo, manages the Peachtree Corners location.

"We're best known for our wings," said Woo. "But we've got great burgers, and a number of sandwiches including a steak and cheese sandwich. My personal favorite is the Buffalo Bleu."

The menu also includes seven different salads including a Southwestern and an Asian Salad with Chicken.

"We prepare everything in house, everything is fresh, nothing comes out of the bag," he added.

And if you're a beer aficionado, the 40 different brews on tap, will undoubtedly peek your interest. The full bar seats 13, plus additional high top seating and booths, which all provide a great view of the five big screen TVs mounted above the bar.

There's an outdoor patio too. When the weather warms, patio furniture and TVs will be added said Woo. He said they plan to feature live music on the patio.

"We're excited to be in the community," said Woo. "Peachtree Corners has a great community feel.

Prices range from $3.75 to $8.25 for the salads, $8.25 to $9.50 for the burgers and sandwiches, the entrees are $12.95. Desserts and a kid's menu are available too. Hours: Mon-Sun 11 a.m. - midnight.

Hmmm...a little growing pains to work through in my opinion. Was there just recently for lunch. The server had a bit of an attitude from start to finish. The TDC salad was nothing but a plate of lettuce, chopped chicken tenders rolled in sauce and placed on the side with a sprinkling of blue cheese and two unripe tomatoes - very disappointing. I ordered a basket of fries. They never came, yet I kept noticing a basket of fries sitting under the heat lamp in the kitchen for a good 25 minutes. When the check came, I mentioned the forgotten fries to the server. I told her I would like a half order now instead of the full order since we already had our salads. Instead of placing a NEW order for the fries, they took the basket under the heat lamp and dumped them in the smaller basket and served them to me. I called the manager over and explained what happened. He apologized and removed the fries from our bill. He then offered free beers. I wasn't drinking beer, I don't like beer. My friend was drinking beer, not me. We did not take him up on the free beer. The right thing to do would have been to remove the salads from our check. The server with the attitude came back to me and said, "Why didn't you say anything to me about the fries?" Sorry, I'm not the server, you are! Oh, and the fries? They were large STEAK fries, not "FRENCH" fries. Disappointing. Will try this place again, but will not have the same server.

I must confess I agree with Jennie on many points. My wife and I visited last week for dinner and I was very dissappointed as I've eaten at other TDC as has my wife and this location has some issues. The wait staff needs training, our young lady spent lots of time at a table with 3 young guys she either knew or wanted to get to know, and almost totally ignored us. We didn't drink any beer but she tried several times to get us to try a beer rather than our diet cokes. Neither of us care much for wings so we were looking forward to some of the other dinner items, almost all of which they didn't seem to have. Ended up with soup and burger, both of which were good but certainly not hot out of the kitchen. Like Jennie we will go back and try again.

Was there with my husband last night for drinks and sat at the bar. Great selection of beers! No service issues at the bar like those mentioned above. Since this is the third time TDC has opened in Norcross (in different locations), hopefully they will get their act together and stick around a while. Used to LOVE the location in Buckhead before it also closed. LOVE Mazzy's on Hilcomb Bridge/Jimmy Carter - great prices, great food and great service - better than TDC for sure.

Due to the aforementioned comments, I skipped the new PC TDC and went straight to my favorite Taco Mac in North Fulton. Somehow TDC seems to be jinxed. I lost count with how many locations folded, reappeared and folded over the years.

I posted a comment on the Patch Facebook page about the new restaurant and heard only positive remarks about the new TDC. And the comment from K Pink above was positive. The restaurant has only been open for a little over three weeks.
Jennie Swiffel March 01, 2013 at 05:20 PM
Judy, if you are saying that because a restaurant has "only been open for a little over three weeks", we paying customers should forgive lousy service and recooked, cold food? I disagree. This place should have its act together on opening day, no excuses. These days, not everyone has a vast amount of disposable income, therefore, dining out can be costly. I expect to receive good, quality food and service from a server who is actually happy to be employed, not some curt snot who feels she's doing me a favor by taking my order. I'm very happy to hear that your experience was so positive, however, mine and several others on this board, have not had good experiences, so we are sharing them. The manager tried to rectify the situation by removing the food item that was reheated and brought to our table and, he offered two free beers. While I appreciate his effort to ease our disappointment, it does not erase the fact that we received crappy service and recooked food. As I said, I will be going back to give it another try, but please, don’t make excuses because they have only been open a short time. Should I forgive a surgeon for forgetting to remove a scalpel from my body because “he’s only been in the operating room a little over three weeks”?

They were not excuses Jennie, I was only trying to illustrate that not everyone had a bad experience. Please don't take my comments the wrong way.

Hey gang, Brad Merrell here. While we do strive for perfection, the truth is restaurants are capable of making mistakes. It truly hurts my feelings when we do make a mistake in one of my restaurants; we train and drill our young people every single day to help eliminate the possibly of mistakes. I apologize about the bad experiences, but I can assure you the number of people that leave our store elated outweighs the mistakes by ten thousandfold. I would appreciate it greatly if Jennie, Steve and Robert would give us another try. Ask for Brad and introduce yourselves and I make you all my personal guests for the evening. Thank you Peachtree Corners for your patronage and making our first month an awesome one! Brad Merrell

We have been to TDC twice now and have had great experiences both times. Our kids love wings, so it is a hit with them. The fish tacos are delicious if you are not a wing eater. We love the improvements to the Dick's shopping center and look forward to many fun family nights at the various restaurants. It is great having more options so close to home!
Robert J. Nebel March 03, 2013 at 03:06 AM
Like everyone else, I will give this new TDC a try. I hope that it will be a major success. It is a much-improved shopping center.
Jennie Swiffel March 03, 2013 at 11:26 PM
Thanks Brad, I am impressed by the fact that you responded to our comments and very much appreciate your offer of patronizing TDC again.
