Village Taqueria & Tequila Bar, formerly known as Lime Taqueria, balances a menu of tacos, burritos, and Mexican entrees with tangy sips from the large tequila and cocktail list and rakes in praise from publications such as the Marietta Daily Journal. Chef Oscar Mendivil runs the kitchen, where he perfects the culinary art of tacos with perfectly braised barbacoa, fire-roasted poblano chilies, and grilled shrimp. The burrito de langosta—packed with sautéed lobster and manchego grits—makes fancy fare portable without the mess of wrapping crème brûlée in a sheet of gold leaf. A dozen margaritas and Latin cocktails grace the drink menu, sharing space with nearly 100 types of tequila.
Springing from the mindparts of CEO and founder John Kunkel, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill combines the tasty flavor of Mexican fare with a dedication to healthy eating and responsible food sourcing. After cutting its teeth in the mean streets of Miami's South Beach, Lime Fresh spread its delicious message across the country, stuffing organic beans, colorful veggies, homemade salsas, and humanely raised meats into tortillas made from non-GMO corn and flour. Chefs grill quesadillas, roll burritos, and sizzle fajitas before customers' eyes, and they can easily convert each item on the menu into a vegetarian-friendly feast or a makeshift futon. As guests content themselves with mouthfuls of flavorful tacos, fresh salads, and cheesy scoops of nachos, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill's dedicated staff works hard behind the scenes to build strong community relationships through contributions to local charities and nonprofits.
Newly opened Taqueria Tsunami's enlightened chefs ignite human biting mechanisms with a casually inventive menu of tacos, bowls, and salads. Foodie flocks can start with one or two appetizers, which include shrimp de fuego, a combination of fried shrimp and fried jalapeños destined for synchronized swims through sweet-and-spicy thai sauce; and queso, a white cheese dip that might be able to reverse stubborn salsa stains if accidentally dribbled mid-conversation. In a culturally divergent All American bowl, white rice provides a sounding board for the musings of grilled steak, onions, and opinionated shiitake mushrooms underneath the golden luminescence of a fried egg's yolk. Diners seeking variety can choose two tacos, such as the barbecue short rib and the Pacific Rim with chili-crusted mahi-mahi, to enjoy alongside one side in a Tsunami trio. Like normal-looking diary thieves, vegetarian tacos also exist. Rinse down edibles with cocktails made from premium liquors and fresh fruits; adult sips include sake sangria and the Patrón-fortified Tsunami wave margarita.
Hairstylist Kris Lawler and Robin Boyar have honed their approach over several decades, and for the last two of these, they've been the proud owners of Studio 305. Inside the clean, modern salon, they lead a team of experienced stylists and color technicians as they transform hair with color and styling products, or buff and polish nails during mani-pedis. Redken, Moroccan Oil, and Pureology products aid them in their quest to tame hair and throw off the scent of any roaming hair collectors. Though the pair always aims to make folks feel pretty, that mission is particularly important to them when offering pro-bono services to victims of domestic violence.
If you step inside Rock 'N Taco, you're bound to see a rock star shrieking into a microphone or playing guitar with whips of his hair. That's because this raucous taco-and-tequila joint plays rock videos on the flat-screen televisions that line its interior. Within this music-themed space, groups down shots of tequila, potent margaritas, and gourmet tacos. Those tacos come stuffed with authentic morsels, such as carne asada and barbacoa, as well as inventive fusion-style ingredients, including buttermilk fried chicken and slow-roasted pulled pork.
