The Little Cantina that could (or should)

It is located in an affluent neighborhood with affluent people who should know better. A landscape that is peppered by fast food and chain restaurants, Star City Cantina’s status as an independent goes unnoticed by those who would rather drive thirty miles to eat within the Big City limits.

This wonderful place, is my home for Sunday nights. I wait tables on Sunday. I’ve found a good weekday job, but this restaurant is one I can believe in, one I want to succeed.

After work today,  my little family went there for dinner. Although I’ve tasted some of the food on their menu, to sit and enjoy it at our leisure was wonderful. For a Friday night, it wasn’t that busy, but much busier than it is on my Sunday night shift. They serve a la carte tacos and many other dishes, but I love some street tacos. I ordered one of these for my husband and I to share:

  • Fried Chicken Taco
  • Carne Asada Taco
  • Baked Grouper Taco
  • Mojo Pork Carnitas Taco
  • Side of Plantains (Maduros)

I was blown away at the quality and flavor profile of these taco wonders. I would expect that kind of bang downtown. My hubs is smitten with the salsa verde, I have to bring that home with me at the end of my shift. Incidentally, all salsa are made in house. My boss, the owner, brought a big bowl of verde to our table. My boss is a really good guy.

That’s why I don’t understand. The Chili’s located a mile away has an hour wait to get in on Friday night. I think Chili’s food is crap. Who wouldn’t want to support a local independent in favor of mundane?

So, if you find yourself heading to Northern Suburban Atlanta, I know a great joint I’d like to recommend…

  1. I don’t know why people don’t support independent stores and restaurant more often. I think part of it is impatience. The chains produce their meals much quicker and it’s not as fresh or healthy. That’s our trade off for time. So sad.

  2. Next time we cruise through Atlanta (considering another relocation there perhaps), I will have to ask you…I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD!!!


  3. What can I say but there’s no accounting for taste. Some people don’t know what good food taste like.
