Cantina brings Mexican favorites close to home

The Salsa had a kick, the Guac was tasty, the tacos meat was seasoned and flavorful, & the margaritas are strong. Definitely hit all the right notes. Not to mention a full bar, something that is a little harder to find in this particular area. -B.Phillips

Mexican food aficionados now have a new restaurant to satisfy their passion for tacos, quesadillas, tortillas, burritos, fajitas, flautas, Spanish rice, refried or black beans – and margaritas, in the South Dekalb neighborhood of Decatur, GA.

Pesos Mexican Cantina opened on June 11 in the Village at Flat Shoals shopping center, across from Kroger on Flat Shoals Parkway in Decatur.

Paul and Robin Turner, and Lewis Roberts opened the eatery and bar, but don’t be fooled by the fact the trio are African-Americans because they know their Mexican cuisine and hired the best Mexican food chef they could find.

They have operated a string of emission-testing stations in DeKalb County since 1999, and realized they'd rather keep your belly full than your car legal. Now the three are focusing their years of business experience on the restaurant.

The cantina opened with 15 employees and word spread fast. Since the opening in June, customers have been sipping mango margaritas at the bar and filling up on their favorite dishes from the extensive menu ever since.

In addition to the regular Mexican fare, there is also a Mexican pizza built on a tortilla crust, wings with chipotle, sweet mild, and sweet hot sauces and delicious fish tacos with lightly seasoned and fried tilapia on a soft, warm corn tortilla with tartar or cucumber sauce. Entrees range from $2.39 tacos to $12.99 for steak or shrimp sizzling fajitas.

Keeping the menu economical is one of their number one goals. The lunch menu starts at $4.99 and Kids 10 and under eat from the Kid’s Menu for only $.99 on Tuesdays. Happy Hour is everyday with food and drink specials from 5 – 8pm and Wednesdays boasts $3.00 drink specials.

Plus, there are six big screen televisions. Patrons can watch all of the NFL and College football games this season. There’s something for the whole family to enjoy at Pesos Mexican Cantina.
