TV’s ‘Atlanta Eats’ coming to Sprayberry’s

by Bradley Hartsell

Peachtree TV’s “Atlanta Eats” is coming to the original Sprayberry’s Bar-B-Que on Jackson Street in Newnan for filming of an upcoming episode.

Sprayberry’s has been family owned and operated since 1926 and along with its second location on Highway 34 East/ Bullsboro Drive has become a staple of the Newnan dining scene, so much so that they caught the attention of Peachtree TV to do an episode.

“We’re real excited,” said Stephen Sprayberry. “We’re looking for a good turnout. It’ll be very exciting for us and good exposure.” Sprayberry noted business would go on as usual and that everything they do will be normal, besides the film crew interviewing them and some of their customers.

The film crew is setting up in the morning and is scheduled to be at Sprayberry’s until 12:15 p.m.

“Atlanta Eats” airs 10:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday and features restaurants in the Atlanta metro area. The episode air-date isn’t scheduled as of yet.
