With roots that trace back decades to its first location on the Syracuse University campus, it's not surprising that Johnny's Pizza chooses to continue perfecting their New York-style pies here in Georgia. The chefs' hand-tossed dough can be topped with the fresh ingredients of your choosing or made into one of 16 specialty pizzas, including the steak and cheese with onions, mushrooms, and green peppers. Pizza dough also doubles as the shell for calzones and stromboli, while 10.5-inch personal pizzas come in a gluten-free version. Oven-baked subs are layered with meatballs or Italian sausage and pasta dinners feature home-cooked classics such as lasagna and chicken parmigiana, but without the smoke-filled kitchen that comes with so many home-cooked meals.

Margaritas Mexican Cantina hardly needs a sign to identify itself. The exterior shouts its affiliations with a tableaux of brightly colored murals depicting margarita glasses, limes, and cacti. This same vibrant motif of orange and lime-green hues sprawls across the interior, highlighting the spacious restaurant's Mexican-themed decor and lending crucial context for the sombrero-wearing diners. Piping-hot platters of enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas cover wooden tables as friendly waiters deliver glasses brimming with house margaritas. Back at the fully stocked bar, bartenders pour out an array of tequilas, such as Patrón and Don Julio, and top off beer glasses with a selection of domestic and imported brews. Flat-screen TVs add another layer of illumination to the interior of the cantina, while on the covered outdoor patio, diners relax beneath strings of lights.
Visitors at any of The Olive Tree Restaurant’s three locations bask in the tantalizing aroma of garlic drifting from the kitchen, which bustles with a lineup of expert chefs. Seated at a cozy table, guests dig into an array of traditional Greek and Italian dishes, taking alternating bites of veal parmesan and grecian scallops. Hosting outdoor dining, the Villa Rica restaurant shelters patrons beneath an awning-protected patio, and the Hiram location houses them in a quaint brick terrace flanked by lattices and the tendrils of hanging plants, which often sneak bites of baked pasta over diners' shoulders. The Hiram location further entertains the senses with live music during dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. At all three locations, patrons can wash down savory bites with wine, draft beer, and specialty cocktails from the full bar, and can request takeout or catering for special events and weddings.
