1. 302 South Street- Printer's Ale Beer

The Squire Shop Carrollton, GA / Via

302 South Street has been a town favorite for 6 years now! I love hanging out on their front porch on a Friday Night, listening to live music and chowing down on one of their Famous Sandwiches like the Eiffel Tower, the Gold Fever Pork Grilled Cheese, or the Hotlanta wrap... all while washing it down with an ice cold beer! Our favorite beer to sip on (or chug) is a local beer from Printer's Ale Brewery! They use Hibiscus Lime as one of their ingredients, which makes it EXTREMELY TASTY! Tell our Favorite Bartender, Ryan, that we said he can be VERY generous with his pour! ;)

2. Little Hawaiian- Sangria

Little Hawaiian is an Award Winning Restaurant that has been open for 14 years. They are known for their amazing seafood, and really anything on the menu! Dishes are prepared with locally-grown organic vegetables and freshly flown-in seafood. The "Goodness" doesn't stop at the Food Menu! Their drinks are AhhhhMazing! Our Favorite Summer drink is their Signature Sangria which is House‐made with red wine & fresh seasonal fruits! Go see our new bartender friend Sydney for this refreshing cocktail!

The Tavern has been completely renovated and transformed into one of our favorite Bars/Eateries! Their menu is full of local favorites such as their Pimento Cheese Nachos and Grilled Kielbasa Sausage Platter! YUUUUMMM!

La Trattoria (pronounced La Tra-tor-ia) is quickly becoming one of our Favorite Italian Eateries! They offer a full menu of traditional pastas and a killer lasagna in half or whole portions! BTW their Olive Salad is to TO DIE FOR for all you Olive Lovers! The cool thing about La Trattoria is that they let you CHOOSE the beers on your Beer Flight, so there's never that, "I liked all but 1 beer" type of chatter!
