Strickland's Restaurant has again been left off a list of restaurants in Athens. Address: 4723 Atlanta Hwy, Athens, GA 30606. 6am - 2pm Mon-Fri. Sat 6 -11:30. Closed Sunday. Open and serving. No I am not affiliated with them, but I have eaten there for 20 years and sad to see a place that has been here since the 60s being left out.
