Tuna Tacos

1. Garlic Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar

Bar, Restaurant, Thai, Sushi

Serving fresh and tasty authentic Thai food at pleasing prices, Garlic Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar is open for both lunch and dinner. The changing lunch specials are always big hits with the customers and include tempting noodle dishes such as mung bean noodles with a choice of chicken, vegetables, tofu or shrimp, and a gorgeous plate of bone-in lamb served with bok choy. At dinner the menu is even more extensive and the plates are presented with a colorful, artful array of fine ingredients. Nuer nam tok (spicy beef salad) is a sure favorite, and both the seafood potstickers in a spicy panang sauce and the lobster tempura roll are also superb choices.

2. Tomo Japanese

Restaurant, Japanese

A beloved restaurant so popular that it gets people driving from out of town just to get their sushi fix, Tomo Japanese is undeniably the best sushi joint in Newnan. Small and always packed, it’s worth calling ahead to try to reserve a table, and the constant stream of people going in and out of the restaurant guarantees that the fish is always the freshest it could possibly be. For non-sushi fans, delicious hibachi dishes are also available. Despite these not being cooked at the table as hibachi traditionally is, the food is still incredibly tasty and the quality excellent. Tomo Japanese also offers takeout dishes so customers can enjoy their sushi back at home or picnic-style, too.

3. Rednexican

Bar, Restaurant, Mexican, American

The place to go in Newnan for great Tex-Mex cuisine, Rednexican serves up a spicy fusion of Southern barbecue comfort foods with south-of-the-border Mexican favorites. Think mac ‘n’ cheese quesadillas, fried catfish tacos, and sloppy joeses. The menu is playful and the atmosphere here quite the same. With a bicycle sat atop the wooden bar, comedy characters adorning the beer taps and simple wooden picnic tables in the barnlike dining area, the Rednexican is a restaurant to visit with a rowdy group of friends looking for great food in a casual, fun-filled atmosphere.

Here customers serve themselves as much or as little of each dish available that they would like. A selection of tempting chicken dishes, vegetable ensembles, potato types and salads always make up the base of the menu, but different items are added every day of the week.

5. Pita By The Beirut

Restaurant, Mediterranean, Street Food

A high-end fast food restaurant specializing in fresh Mediterranean flavors, Pita by the Beirut is a family-run establishment where secret recipes are used daily in the delicious homemade dishes. For the complete Beirut experience, order as many different menu items as you and your lunch or dinner companions can manage in order to sample the full array of tasty flavors on offer. All three of the side dishes available – feta cheese with Lebanese olives, homemade hummus, and yogurt dip – are absolute must-tries and are perfect for keeping hunger pangs at bay while the main courses are cooking. After the sides have been devoured, tuck into a choice of pitas, wraps or colorful platters of meat, rice and vegetables.

6. Town and Country

Restaurant, American

Famed for its all-you-can-eat seafood buffet every third Saturday of the month, Town and Country serves family-friendly Southern favorites in a casual and welcoming atmosphere. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the most popular dishes here vary widely depending on the time of day. Tuck into a Virginia baked ham breakfast bowl or an old-fashioned cheese omelet at breakfast, a chicken tender sandwich or cheeseburger at lunch, and a fried flounder fish fillet, Applewood smoked pork chop or ribeye steak during the dinner service.

7. Fire Dragon

Restaurant, Asian

Serving an unbelievable variety of delicious Asian dishes, Fire Dragon is a huge favorite among local spice lovers. Featuring a variety of Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Malaysian dishes, this is the type of restaurant that you can visit numerous times without ever having to order the same plate twice. Each cuisine is awarded its own page in the menu so it’s quick and easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. A popular Chinese menu item is the empress chicken – a dish of deep fried battered chicken with broccoli, carrots and onion in a sweet and sour spicy sauce – while over on the Malaysian menu favorite items include curry snapper and spicy noodle soup.
