R.E.M. borrowed the title for its 1992 album, "Automatic For the People," from the motto of this Athens soul food restaurant, and although legions of music fans and locals have passed through its doors since, rumors of the closure of Weaver D’s Delicious Fine Foods have been swirling. For now, owner Dexter Weaver is hanging in there and serving up plates of signature dishes including fried chicken, collard greens and mac and cheese at the 25-year-old establishment.
