Tin Lizzys Taqueria Cantina
Location: In the front of the Avenue, where Cheeky used to be. Atmosphere: Casual and laid back. They have a nice patio where you can sit and sip your problems away, while watching the lovely EC traffic. Food/Beverages: They offer beer and cocktails, but are known for their margaritas and drinks that feature tequila. I ordered the duo for an appetizer and that features two of your choice of queso, guacamole or salsa. They also have a trio, which is all three combined. I do not know what seasoning they sprinkle on their chips, but it is like crack to me. (btw. Drugs are bad) Anyhow, I love that seasoning and it really makes the chips super flavorful. I also ordered the cantina skillet, where you can add your own toppings and proteins of your choice. I have never really been into Tin Lizzy’s when I first dined at their Perimeter location, but now I know why they are so busy. Their skillet was amazing and is served over yummy and flavorfully spiced rice. If there is one thing that you need to get it is their QUESO!!!! I usually do not like queso, but my friend wanted some so we decided to share the duo. I got my guacamole and she got her queso. So, I tried a bit of the queso because she was raving about it and boy was she right. Their queso is downright delicious! I dipped it with everything and poured it all over my cantina skillet. Sounds a bit gross, but don’t knock it until you try it. I also ordered a side of plantains, which are my favorite and guess what? The queso tasted delicious with it too. Service: Our server was super friendly and attentive. He even shared some information about plantains and how in the latin culture plantains are served at every meal. Overall: I am so stoked that we finally have a decent mexican restaurant in EC. They might not be your traditional and authentic mexican restaurant, but they are doing their food justice. Everything was delicious and I will definitely be back soon.

Rocco's European Garage
The BEST repair shop I have ever taken my car to!!!!!! The repairs performed on my car were done in a very timely manner and at a cost that was far cheaper than the dealership. I took my car to other repair shops in the area before finding Rocco's. The feeling that I was not going to be ripped off at Rocco's was almost immediate upon walking in. Johnny, one of the owners, made me feel very comfortable right off the bat. He was very professional and came across as extremely honest and sincere. It was very clear that he was extremely knowledgeable about car repairs when he took his time explaining to me in detail the issues they had found in my car. An EXCELLENT family-run, neighborhood European Auto Repair shop that I would recommend over-and-over-and-over again to anyone looking for an HONEST place to take their car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rocco's put faith back in me that there actually is people out there that are doing right by others, and not just out there to make a quick buck!

Marietta Diner
We have given this place several tries. Your best meal is either a dessert or breakfast. If you want your eggs cooked a certain way, this is not the place to go. I had ordered my eggs a certain way. (Medium) They were wrong three times. The server informed us that they have a hard time cooking eggs in the back. That is one of the first things you learn in culinary school. I have ordered the steak, and it has come out twice over cooked. The second time the manager stood over me until I cut it open. I explained to him the state has to rest at least five minutes before you cut it open otherwise all the juices come out. Finally I just cut the steak opening well all the juices came out it was a dry overcooked mess. On the positive side, the baklava is delicious. You get a small plate of spanakopita when you sit down. It is homemade it is delicious. The restaurant itself is pretty cool, the food is subpar.

Tobacco World
This place is the real deal. From the moment you walk in the door it becomes obvious - the exquisite care and detail in the world of cigars. The largest humidor in Georgia is by no accident. The caring and expertise is obvious. It's in the taste, the smoke, the essence of the finer forces of nature rolled into a package of pure pleasure. No dried tobacco, no junk fakes. It takes special concern / diligence and intelligence to weed out the impostors and attend to such detail on these works of nature. The clerks are as different as the products. They let you be so that you are free - without persuasion, opinion etc., to see for yourself what fits your needs. Ultimately this is how to find the right smoke for you. The selection is fantastic and the prices are reasonable And if you want some real conversation with some great people just sit back and relax. Places like this are rare to find.

Eiffel's Place
To the previous poster: If Eiffel found "another issue" it is because he and his team are unbelievable thorough. My Review: Eiffel is highly recommended when it comes to NSX service as well as other Honda/Acura's and Toyota/Lexus. I've taken a couple of my NSXs to him in the past. It is amazing what he will find when he checks them out. If you are buying an NSX close to him, you owe it to yourself to have him do a PPI. We also took my wife's 2005 TL for service on numerous occasions as well and have referred many friends and family members who have been delighted with his business. We have a friend who bought a new Acura over any other make specifically because she wanted to still be able to take it to Eiffel when needed. He's an honest guy running an honest business. If you want to speak personally about my experience with Eiffel, feel free to contact me.

Dubtech Automotive
Throw all the stigmas and stereotypes you have or know regarding mechanics out the window. Justin is a straight shooter and tells it as it is. I've never felt slighted or had a sense of dishonesty when taking my car there. My Mazda3 5-door and I have been customers of his for about two years now even though I know his area of expertise is VW and Audi. Aside from any maintenance and repairs I've needed I take my car there even for just oil changes. I'd rather pay the few extra $'s over a "quick lube" type of place knowing that my vehicle will be cared for as if he owned it himself. Justin has always been very accommodating with my busy schedule and always manages to find time to squeeze me in eve though he is extremely busy. I highly recommend DubTech to anyone that is looking for any type of automobile mechanic service.

JR Crickets
Have been wanting to try this location since they opened. Finally we were able to eat there last night. Ordered fried cheese as an appetizer and then the wing/chicken finger combo, and a pitcher of beer. One of the glasses was obviously chipped but no apologizes expressed when we asked for another glass. The appetizer came 2 mins before our meal. We had to ask for plates, napkins, silverware, and condiments for our food. The chicken wings were pitiful - hardly any meat on them. The chicken fingers had absolutely no taste. We've eaten at the Smyrna location and loved it. This new location is great in terms of atmosphere & comfort. We will probably give it one more try but order something different.

European Auto Repair Shop
I recently purchased a used Jaguar xtype. Two months after owning it the engine malfunction light came on and it didn't run well. After checking with several places in town, including Nalley Jaguar, I took my car to European Auto Repair Shop after being referred by a close friend. Not only did his technician Rick repair my car for a fraction of the cost that others were going to diagnose my car's troubles, but they inspected the car thoroughly and really put my mind at ease with my purchase. I highly recommend European Auto Repair Shop for all services. It is rare in this industry to find a shop that you can trust, thank you European Auto Repair Shop for restoring my faith in this industry!

Canton Tire and Auto Repair
these guys are quick.....they had what i needed and a let me look at a few other options. I told them I would walk to the gas station literally across the street and they said for me not to because it wouldn't take long and they actually had it done before i walked in the door of the gas station. The only thing I would say is do your research of other tires sizes that may fit your vehicle because some of the more standard/factory sizes are in supply and demand and they may be out of, so if there is another size you can go with they may have it but may not offer that size to you, not sure if they either don't know of just don't ask or give options.

European Auto Repair Shop
I was referred to E.A.R.S by a relative who sends his BMWs there. I am now a loyal customer of E.A.R.S. Rudy and Rick are awesome-- very knowledgeable, customer/client centered and all around great to work with. Of course BMW (and other automakers) have you scared to take your car to anyone but the dealership. I trust the staff there with my vechicle and they are very competitively priced. In fact, I live 2.5 hrs away, in South Georgia, but plan to have my car serviced and repaired at E.A.R.S whenever I am in the Marietta area b/c I believe that it is well worth it. I have since purchased a Porsche and it will be serviced by E.A.R.S as well. Thanks!
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
