2017 March 12 - Hired Guns Hi Res - Jennifer Carroll-53.jpg

Chef Kevin Gillespie’s restaurant, Gunshow, offers a bold, interactive take on the traditional dining experience. Dishes are presented on rolling carts and trays to diners at their tables where they can then choose what to order. Pricing is a la carte. 

 Along with an innovative dining experience, the restaurant’s design is also unique. With few walls and a highly visible kitchen, Gillespie and the talented team at ai3, Inc. have created a sense of transparency throughout Gunshow.  

 The restaurant’s name is a tribute to his family. Growing up, Gillespie’s father worked seven days a week to provide a better life for his family. On the rare Sunday afternoon he had off, father and son would go to a gun show.

Gunshow is located in the Glenwood Park neighborhood of Atlanta.

FAQ

(Click the question)

+ WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME GUNSHOW?

The restaurant’s name is a tribute to owner Kevin Gillespie’s family. Growing up, his father worked seven days a week to provide a better life for his family. On the rare Sunday afternoon he had off, father and son would go to a gun show.

+ DOES GUNSHOW HAVE MENUS?

Yes, each guest receives a menu at their table that includes a list of dishes and pricing. Each time you order an item, a chef or server will mark your menu so you can keep track of what you’ve tried so far.

+ WHERE CAN I FIND THE MENU ONLINE?

The menu is updated weekly, but may not be fully accurate as some menu items are subject to change on a nightly basis. You can follow us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter for the most current menu updates and photos.

+ WILL I HAVE A SERVER?

Yes, every table has an assigned server that can answer any menu questions, fetch and refill drinks, charm snakes, etc.

+ HOW DO I ORDER?

Simply put: just let the food come to you. The person who prepared the dish will walk over to your table and describe his/her dish. Feel free to ask questions! Just nod or say yes if you’re in, and how many orders you want. Not interested? That’s ok, just pass and wait for the next dish to come along.

+ I WAITED ALL NIGHT AND NEVER GOT TO TRY (INSERT ITEM YOU LUSTED AFTER ). WHY IS LIFE SO CRUEL?

We’re sorry to hear that a dish didn’t make its way to you. We do our best to get around to every guest, but sometimes we run out of popular dishes. If you see something you have to have, you can also let your server know so he/she can try to assist.

+ WHY IS IT SO BRIGHT/LOUD INSIDE?

Gunshow was designed to have zero separation between guests and the kitchen. We felt like this would increase the quality of experience and give people a real taste of what is going on. Actually, the entire restaurant is a kitchen so whatever goes on in a kitchen (bright lights, no sound deafening panels) goes on in the entire restaurant.

+ HOW DO I MAKE A RESERVATION?

Reservations are available through Yelp Reservations for parties of 7 or less. We only take reservations for 1 month in advance of the date the reservation is made. We welcome walk-ins on a first come-first serve basis though we can not guarantee availability.

+ WHY IS A RESERVATION DIFFERENT FOR A PARTY OF 8 to 12 GUESTS?

Due to the size of the restaurant and the limited number of tables in house we do not offer reservations for parties of 8 to 12 guests online. Reservations for groups of this size can be made over the phone or via email. We offer two seating times each night, Tuesday through Saturday, at 6pm and 8:30pm. In order to ensure an enjoyable experience for our guests we customize a family style 8 course meal for the table at $70 per person, beverages and gratuity not included. Feel free to contact us for more information.

+ WHERE DO I PARK?

Parking is available in the Glenwood parking lot behind Gunshow and on the street.
