Downtown Decatur’s Big Tex Cantina is must try for fans of Atlanta’s famous Fox Bros. BBQ.
Hearty HUGE portions, Southern friendliness from the servers, and a whole lotta Texas-related knicknaks make for a great environment to gorge yourself on some total gut-busting fare. Their Tex-Mex menu also features comfort food favorites like Chicken Fried Steak and Hamburgers. I’d highly recommend this place for anyone in need of curing a hangover, a pleasant patio, or a place to watch the big game.
Oh, in case you were wondering… the place is owned by real Texans. That was definitely a concern of mine outright. In fact, this is the best place for Tex-Mex in Atlanta that I’ve been to. Unlike many Mexican restaurants I’ve been to during my 11 years in ATL, Big Tex Cantina gives you sour cream, salsa, and other fixin’s with your entrees. The first time I went to Moe’s I walked away with a 14 dollar burrito because I wanted guacamole! Eff that logic!
Highlights at Big Tex Cantina include mountain of brisket enchiladas & possibly the best creamed corn in town.
