Tuesday’s Treats #197

La Hacienda

Location: Suwanee, Georgia

This place is great! The salsa has a kick. The chips are fresh. The sweet tea is Southern style, and the meat is delicious. It’s a pretty new restaurant; so, go check it out.

The steak fajitas, chicken hacienda and molcajete are some of our favorites! To be honest, I wasn’t crazy about their bacon wrapped shrimp, but to each their own. The salmon chipotle looked amazing. I might try that next time.

Bravo’s Cantina and Grill

Location: Sugar Hill, Ga

(Note: this is the location at 5965 Cumming Hwy. There is another Bravo’s, but it is a smaller, more fast food type restaurant.)

The atmosphere here is good, and the wait staff are friendly. It seems they went through a bit of a slump last year and had a few rude waiters, but it seems they’ve gotten past that now.

The fajitas and this chicken pictured is delicious. I’m sorry I don’t have the name, but it’s chicken on top of grilled veggies, topped with cheese sauce, served on a sizzling platter. It is absolutely amazing! The steak tacos, rice and beans and chips and salsa are all great, but that is all we’ve had on the menu; so, if you like something else, you might just have to drop by and see for yourself. 😉

I haven’t found a good website for them; so, I am sharing the Facebook site, as well as, the trip advisor rating page. Maybe these will help you with locations and other interests.

Emiliano’s Mexican Grill

Location: Pigeon Forge, Tn

This is a great little Mexican restaurant in Pigeon Forge. Honestly, from the outside, it doesn’t look like much, and we’ve only eaten there once; however, the chips and salsa, sweet tea, beans and rice and Fajita Nachos were delicious. 

So, look here for more info, or look them up on trip advisor, and go give them a try while you’re recouping from the go cart riding across the street. 😉

Holston’s Kitchen

Location: Sevierville, Tn

This is the place to get incredible steaks while you are in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area. There are many great choices on the menu, and quite the variety from fried chicken to pasta to fajitas, but the steaks are probably my favorite. They are seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is really cool, and the staff is always helpful and courteous. 

If you’re in Tn to visit Dollywood, the music theaters or the Great Smokies, be sure to add this to your “must visit” list for a great lunch or dinner. Oh, they apparently have a brunch on Saturday’s as well. 😉

El Ranchero Mexican

Location: Grayson, Ga

This is a great, festive Mexican restaurant just on the west end of Grayson. It’s bright and airy and fun. The chips and salsa and sweet tea are all great. The fajitas, Fajita Nachos with chicken and steak, beans and rice are great, too. They could have loaded the fajitas with a bit more meat, but it was tasty. 

We’ve only been here once; so, I don’t have more menu items to recommend, but these are good choices to start. Here is the Facebook page for you to check out the menu. 

Tuesday’s Treats #64

Twisted Taco

Location: Several Atlanta/sub-Atlanta areas

This is a great Tex Mex restaurant. Ok, so I know this is a franchise restaurant, but I review those every once in a while to give some variety, and this place is well worth it! It has the coolest atmosphere. You can sit in a jail cell to eat your meal and even watch a movie, too. 

The food is great, too. Be sure to start off with the Twisted Taco Queso. Oh. My. Word. YUM. Our party of four got steak fajitas and rice and beans, and the last time my husband and son went, he got steak tacos. Everything was delicious. Just be aware that if you’re going to split fajitas for two, be sure and get the full pound order. Our waitress said the lunch special of fajitas (half pound) would be enough for two, but it was a little short on  delivery. We were ok, because we had the queso and twisted pickles prior to the meal, but we could have stood for a little more meat. 

There were several more choices on the menu, and everything looked delicious. We will definitely be back again!

Cocina Fuentes (Mexican)

Location: Monroe, Ga

 This place is probably the absolute BEST Mexican restaurant we have been to! It’s in the cute little town of Monroe, Georgia, and after you enjoy your meal, you can head downtown and the surrounding areas to find some great antique shops. The atmosphere here is great, and the service is always spot on.

The food is always made perfect to order, and everything tastes fresh and prepared with care. The steak seems to be of higher quality than most Mexican restaurants, and everything else is just perfect. They have quite an extensive menu from which to choose, and I do wish I had more pics to share with you.

My husband usually gets the Taco Quaintes (spelling?), and it is always delicious. I apologize that I don’t have the name of the meal above, but I can say it was also delicious! I have looked online for their website; however, there doesn’t seem to be one listed. However, they do have a facebook page, and here is a copy of their lunch menu.

Oh, and I do hope you don’t think me rude for posting a pic of the bathroom, but I wanted to be able to share the attention they give to details. Most places just stick a sink in there to get the job done, but this is actually stylish and beautiful. Their attention to details shows in everything they do. Drop by, and check them out!
