AUSTELL, Ga. - For local Mexican restaurants, it's the biggest day of the year. Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexico's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla back in 1862, and you can bet one of the biggest parties in Georgia today will be happening in Austell.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at Casa Grande Bar and Grill, the new Mexican restaurant opened by the family behind Marietta Diner and Marietta Fish Market. Owner Gus Tselios says he's been counting down the days to Cinco de Mayo, and plans on serving plenty of authentic Mexican dishes all day, along with some special entertainment for guests. Menu specialties include the Chipotle-Pesto Chimichanga (which includes shrimp and lobster meat) and the Casa Grande Chicken.
Casa Grande Bar and Grill is located at 2810 East-West Connector in Austell. Click here for more information!
