Exactly why we are knocking them out asap. We could max out her loans and live like OT ballers for the next few years, but I know once we start having kids she won't want to work full time and I want that debt gone so she doesn't have to work if she doesn't want...

I've tried most of them, Crawfish Tyme on E 70th is my preferred.
I'm from the river parishes, so I'm not a fan of the "seasoned on the outside" style most places do up here.
Have not tried Bergeron's, but I may this weekend if they have them....

False. You can easily make it from one end of ATL to the other in under 25 minutes. I do it twice a week.
It's even easier when you have a tight connection and they pick you up. This was my ride last week:
