    My husband and I have several favorites: The Olive Tree in Villa Rica, La Fiesta at I-20 & Thornton Rd. and Cabin Fever Roasters. What do they all have in common? GREAT service and WONDERFUL food!!

    Can’t beat Taqueria Jalisco next to Longhorn on Fairburn Rd, the staff is so friendly and the food is authentic Mexican. The Vine in downtown Douglasville has some nice vegetarian choices along with smoothies and naan pizzas, the chicken panini was excellent. You can’t beat fresh ingredients and the staff could not be nicer.

  8. Candi on July 9, 2017 at 4:22 pm

    American pie!! They have the best pizza ever and the butter balls are to die for

  9. Michelle Dooley on July 9, 2017 at 2:53 pm

    It all depends on the mood…Gumbeaux’s is amazing food and a wide variety; but for southern home cooking hands down to “Bankhead Diner”

  10. Melissa on July 9, 2017 at 11:16 am

    I absolutely love the Chick-fil-A in Carrollton!! In Villa Rica I love love love Los Cowboys! Amazing food, drinks, and the service is awesome!

  11. Julie on July 9, 2017 at 10:52 am

    We enjoy Wasabi, Gumbeaux’s and LA Fiesta. The service and food is great at all three.

  12. Peggy on July 9, 2017 at 10:14 am

    #1 place to go is Gumbeaux. You get two meals for one, the portions is so large you have lunch for the next day. I always bring our out of town friends here and they love it and want to come back.

  13. Katherine Streetman on July 9, 2017 at 10:12 am

    Gabe’s Downtown is by far the best around! The French Cajun flavors are delicious & Chef Gabe plates everything so beautifully. The portions are large & the specials are always changing. I love the $3 tapas & happy hour options at the bar. If you haven’t tries Gabe’s, what are you waiting for?!

  14. Stephanie Parson on July 9, 2017 at 9:29 am

    We have several but one of the best steaks is at Backwoods in Tallapoosa (hope y’all consider this west GA area). We also enjoy Plates on the square in Carrollton and Hudsons in Douglasville.

    • Allison on July 9, 2017 at 10:47 am

      Absolutely,Tallapoosa is definitely part of West Georgia. I have heard about Backwoods over the years, but have never dined there.

      • Tim Collins on July 9, 2017 at 12:28 pm

        I have been curious about that one too.

  15. Heather Hardy on July 9, 2017 at 9:28 am

    My favorite West Georgia eatery is the Courthouse Café located at 312 Newnan St., downtown Carrollton. They are open 6am – 2pm and are a great stop for breakfast or lunch. I love their breakfast menu and have always enjoyed their fresh, made to order omelettes. It’s charm comes from its southern atmosphere and can take you back to simpler times.

  16. Nianya Hoel on July 9, 2017 at 9:21 am

    El Ranchito Mexican Restaurant – 634 Carrollton Villa Rica Hwy. They are very courteous and have fantastic fajitas. They can easily accommodate my gluten free diet and they even made me special salsa without jalapenos due to allergy.

  17. Jennifer on July 9, 2017 at 9:17 am

    Gumbeaux is where I have made the best memories with friends.

  18. Mark on July 9, 2017 at 8:25 am

    The OthersideAt Uncorked on Main in Villa Rica may still be the best kept secret in the area. Business is steady but not a long wait time. The regular menu items include delicious shrimp and grits, ribeye, and an awesome pork chop. Watch for specials depending on availability and what Chef Eric Reed wants to add. The Bacon Cheddar Meatloaf special is one of a kind, great taste, and a substantial portion.

  19. Linda on July 9, 2017 at 8:20 am

    My all time favorite is Gumbeaux in Douglasville then we have Hudson and lafista Mexican yummy

    • Linda D Scates on July 9, 2017 at 10:51 am

      Gumbeaux food is so tasty and add the wonderful service what more do you need

  20. Chancie on July 9, 2017 at 8:01 am

    I would have to say Gumbeaux downtown Douglasville. Food is always fresh and I always have something to take home!!!

  21. Holly on July 9, 2017 at 7:35 am

    I have to brag on one of the best darn coffee houses in Douglasville…Cabin Fever Roasters. My husband and I have been in several different times for coffee and the knowledge of their coffee is incredible! You get a mini crash course in flavors and let’s you smell the beans etc. Always been a fan! Yesterday a friend and business parter decided to go there for lunch after an event we did In Douglasville. I ordered the soup and 1/2 sandwich and had the most incredible lobster bisque! My friend had the fried Mac and Cheese Sammy and she loved it! Can’t wait to go back again for lunch ! Try it out and you can thank me later!

    • Tim Collins on July 16, 2017 at 9:03 pm

      I really like this one too. Their sandwiches are great!

  22. Selena Bauman on July 8, 2017 at 3:08 pm

  27. Tiffany Esch on July 8, 2017 at 12:32 am

    i know it’s considered fast food. But chick fil a is a favorite in our house (especially our Villa Rica CFA). Love a cup of chicken salad and a lemonade to make a summer day great! Not to mention the staff there under Justin Day are always looking for ways to help you enjoy your day. First place we took my sis from Canada was to a chick fil a. She loves it now. ❤️

  28. Gisele D. on July 8, 2017 at 12:11 am

    A favorite restaurant of mine is the Cookout in Carrollton. Not only do they have great food,a clean restaurant and fast service. They are faith based which is so important to me! My favorite combo meal is BBQ sandwich,fries ,coleslaw and coke for $4,99!

  35. Linda Miller on July 7, 2017 at 5:28 pm

    We have several favorites in our area – Sam and Rosco’s, Little Hawaiian, La Salsa but for our favorite family fun dinner we love Daruma because it’s fun to watch the chef and because its 4 course meal we have time to socialize and have a good time.

    I have several restaurants that I love in Villa Rica,Carrollton, and Douglasville. My all time favorite is Gumbeaux in Douglasville.

  40. Allison on July 7, 2017 at 2:57 pm

    I have several well-loved restaurants around the West Georgia area, but will just mention one for now because it is fairly new. The Brown Dog, A Charleston Eatery is fabulous! It’s located just off of the square in Carrollton. I enjoy the atmosphere and choose the outdoor seating every time. The Fried Chicharrones (Pork Skin Nachos) are out of this world! If you are a seafood lover, go with the She Crab Soup. You can read more about the Brown Dog and view the menu on their Facebook page

  41. Tim Collins on July 7, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    I think the restaurant we enjoy most here, in Villa Rica, is Trading Post Cafe. They offer a big menu, and the food always seems fresh, and the prices are relatively reasonable. My personal favorite things to order are the Teriyaki Chicken with a side salad and cucumber salad, and I also really like the Hawaiian burger. Their menu is online at There are a lot of other restaurants I enjoy though, so I’ll probably add some more as we go along. I just wanted to get it started.
