Good Mexican Food in Augusta

I have lived in New Orleans, Orlando, Dallas, Nashville and Gainesville, Florida – but for some reason it is Augusta, Georgia with the best Mexican Food. There are a dozen places in Augusta that I categorize as “Cheap Mex.” Today my husband and I had lunch for $10.00 tax and tip included. So it might not be cheap on everyone’s standards, but for some reason that is just the name that has stuck with me. No disrespect meant.

The Mexican restaurants in Augusta include – Vallarta’s, Monterrey, Salsa’s, Mi Rancho and Teresa’s. Every restaurant includes free chips and salsa. Awesome. I am usually full by the time my entrée arrives, but who cares. Tonight it will be nuggets for the kids and no dinner for adults, because I will still be full from lunch. No lie.

These restaurants are common meeting places for me and my friends. The Augusta Mexican restaurants are all very fast and very kid friendly. They have a separate lunch menu and always have entrée and drink specials.

I have talked about my family before – but you should know my sister from New Jersey and my mother from Miami always want to get “Cheap Mex” when they come to Augusta, Georgia.

Rooster's Beak

I recently ate at the Rooster’s Beak with a group of people who were visiting Augusta from various places in the Southeast.  They were intrigued by the different taco options, which Rooster’s Beak is known for, and pleased with the wide variety of cocktails and beer selections.  They have over 30 specialty beers, and some standard favorites for those who aren’t as adventurous.

We started off with an appetizer of chips and three different salsas – fresh, roasted and green.  They were all delicious, but the green salsa had a little something different that gave it great flavor.

For our meals my group all went with tacos.  The favorite at my table was the Veggie which has roasted cauliflower, roasted potatoes, roasted green peppers and pumpkin seed pesto.  I ventured into the specials territory though, and was not disappointed.  My sashimi grade tuna, served on a bed of green tea soba noodles and topped with crab meat and a white curry sauce, was out of this world.  And it was presented beautifully.

Not only does the Rooster’s Beak have great beer, great tacos and great specials, they also have fantastic homemade desserts.  Ice cream options for us that night were Cheez-It, Blueberry Bacon and Smoked Plum, in addition to some more traditional options.  We tried them all and, although they may not sound it, they were good!

One of our guests tried the wine cake, complete with grape glaze and ice cream on top. It was delicious!

Be sure to check out Rooster’s Beak sometime soon.  They are open Tuesday – Saturday for lunch and dinner.  Find out more at www.feedyourbeak.com.
