The Philly cheese steak at Weeyums Philly Style in Stone Mountain Village has been named one of Georgia’s “100 Plates That Locals Love.”

Weeyums, which opened in May 2000 at 900 Main St., was awarded the distinction by the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Tourism Division and is featured in the state’s new culinary guide, Georgia Eats.

Kevin Langston, the department’s deputy commissioner for tourism, said the division is celebrating the state’s culinary greatness this year.

“It’s Georgia’s outstanding local restaurants that truly showcase the state’s rich flavors that locals and visitors love,” Langston said in a July 20 statement. “Each dish on our list of ‘100 Plates That Locals Love’ epitomizes Georgia’s culinary scene with locally made and grown ingredients. These are the best of the best in Georgia and we can’t wait to share them with our visitors.”

Stone Mountain Mayor Pat Wheeler was proud of the distinction.

Weeyums has been a part of the Stone Mountain community for many years, serving up the best Philly cheese steak the state has to offer,” she said. “They deserve a ‘mountain’ of congratulations.”

As part of the designation, each restaurant is featured in the Georgia Eats official culinary guide being distributed by the 11 Visitor Information Centers statewide; on the state’s consumer tourism site, ExploreGeorgia.org; and on ExploreGeorgia.org’s 14 social media channels.

The Georgia Department of Economic Development plans, manages and mobilizes state resources to attract new business investment to the state; drive the expansion of existing industry and small business; locate new markets for Georgia products; inspire tourists to visit Georgia; and promote the state as a top destination for arts events and film, music and digital entertainment projects.
