Regardless of the name change to Redlands, this is still just J. Alexanders, albeit with a substantial price increase. This is a Houston's wannabe, but they are a bit under water on that. I went there the other night only because a friend picked it as our dining destination. This has never been, nor will be in the future, a "rota" restaurant for my family. The food is decent, but nothing special. I had not been there in nearly a year, so I checked the menu on-line. The French Dip sandwich at $14 looked promising, or perhaps the $10 burger. When there I ordered the $19 French Dip and not the $14 burger. The French Dip was good, but Marlow's French Dip sandwiches are bigger and better and priced at only $15. Marlow's Tavern Burger is first rate at only $10. Why go to J. Alexander's? I'm quite sure I don't know!

Mavericks Cantina is a family owned and operated, So-Cal Mexican Cantina offering fresh cuisine in a casual atmosphere.
We went for dinner. Margaritas were excellent! My husband had cheeseburger tacos and I had steak tacos. Both were excellent! We also got the delicious guacamole and street corn!
We love Antebellum so we were so excited to try the cantina and we were not disappointed! Wow!!Give it a try! You won’t be sorry!

This amazing place is not on any gf review site (that I've found anyway), but luckily a gf friend went for a family celebration and found out they had a nice selection of gf menu options. The au gratin potatoes are out of this world and worth the drive from anywhere in the ATL. Of course, for most guests, the steaks are the star of the show, but when you typically can't have something simple like au gratin potatoes, you appreciate it more than most. GF menu items are noted and while there are many choices, some items can also be modified so be sure to ask if there is anything special you're interested in.
The service, food quality (and presentation) and ambiance is perfect for a date night or outing with good friends. Most people must agree it's best to leave the kids at home as we didn't see even one, but I'm not aware of a rule banning kids there. If you're tired of driving into BH for a special meal, check out Pampas...steak lovers and gluten-free diners will not be disappointed! Oh!....the Bananas Foster here is the best in the ATL!

Egg Harbor Cafe is one of our favourite stops when we're visiting family in Georgia.
Unfortunately they really don't know how to make proper coffee. By all means keep the current bottomless cheap coffee for people who don't mind, but please add the option of good coffee. For an investment of just few hundred dollars you can get a decent burr grinder (e.g. Baratza Virtuoso). Combine that with good beans and you'll have way better coffee even using your current drip coffee makers.

This was my third trip to Sugo over about 5 years time. The first trip was amazing. The second was impressive. However, this time was pretty blah despite the hefty price. I found my stuffed pork tenderloin to be dry and I seriously suspect that it was pork loin, not tenderloin. Sorry, Sugo. I think that was my last visit. The main obstacle was getting service. From the time we were hoping to get our check and leave, it was another 45 minutes. That is just not acceptable service.

We arrived at noon on a weekday and we were surprised that the restaurant was nearly empty. Our waitress was friendly and when a colleague said that she had special requests (plural!), our waitress was quick to take notes.
The menu is mostly American food with a twist. I ordered the brisket quesadilla with a side of fries. It was a hearty meal. Not only was the brisket delicious, but the quesadilla was chockful of fresh, grilled vegetables. My colleagues both ordered the brisket philly, which they told me was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I have been back twice for lunch after my initial visit and I cannot wait to try other items on their menu. However, the service could be improved upon. At times, we did not see our waitress. Other patrons were flagging down waitresses that were not their own to try to get a refill on their drinks, more condiments, or an update on their meal.

Taqueria del Mar is a fast casual grill and bar featuring fresh, fast, affordable southwestern cuisine with hand crafted margaritas, cocktails, beer and wine. Located in Peachtree Corners, Georgia (formerly Norcross, GA) - we are open 7 days a week for lunch, dinner and brunch - served all day every day.
I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. Most recently, my wife and I came with another couple for an early dinner. We were seated and served quickly and efficiently. Chips and drinks came right away and were replenished without our asking. My go-to dish is the chicken tamarind burrito with beans and rice--I've never had it anywhere else and it is consistently good. One of my fellow diners had it as well and shared my opinion.. All of our portions were large and the bill was very reasonable.
You have to look a little bit for this restaurant--it is inconspicuously nestled in a strip mall just north of the Forum shopping area in Peachtree Corners. Worth noting: when I've come here in the past, later in the evening, there was more of a cantina (i.e., drinking as well as dining) atmosphere, even on a weeknight. Plus, it usually is packed at this time. On this recent visit, during the early dinner hour, it was far less crowded (although it had started to fill up by the time we left) and there were several families with small children.

I had such high hopes for this restaurant based on the reviews and I still believe it has potential but we were not exactly bowled over on our first visit. We had reservations for 7:15 and were seated quickly. It took some time to get menus and place settings...and yes the the menus were sticky, as other reviewers have complained. If the first impression is a sticky menu, it makes you wonder about overall cleanliness. The table could have been wiped down better as well. And it didn't help that a fly kept circling around. (I realize you can't totally avoid the random fly but it's still gross when it lands on your food or on the rim of your wine.)
Our waiter was very nice. He brought us waters (but no ice, so water was warm). It took a while longer to get our drinks. Most of the staff in the restaurant had a general look of confusion about them. I don't know if everyone is new or if that's just a unique requirement of the job, but nothing really seemed to flow easily. We had to ask for the garlic rolls twice (which, by the way, were very good). The young man who sat us offered to bring us some, but forgot. Then we had to ask the waiter twice because he forgot. Meals took a little while, but our server kept us to date on the progress and let us know he didn't forget us. However, the rest of my family's meals came out first, so they were essentially finished before I got mine. A well-run restaurant should be able to serve meals at the same time. Having said that, the waiter took the entree off the bill without any prompting from us, so that alone would make me give this place another try.
As far as the food goes, the margarita pizza was pretty soggy on the bottom...not sure if it would have been decent if it cooked properly. The braised short rib pappardelle was smothered in sauce (had a hard time finding the pappardelle) and generally lacking in flavor. However, my husband's veal was good.
So while we didn't have a great first-time experience, we would give it another try, order some different menu items, and hope for the best. I'd really like to see this little neighborhood Italian restaurant succeed.

A warm welcome from smiling face greets you as pleasing aromas preview the finest Thai cuisine. We believed that the variety of excotic Thai dishes which our menu offers, together with delicate balance of spices and fresh ingredients will create a sophisicated, delicious & a unique dining experience.
Visiting this spot about 6 times in the last few months. Great service. Good Thai. Nice outdoor seating. Nice portions. Heat levels are as ordered. Duck is amazing. Pad Thai and Drunken noodles are lovely.
