A taste of historic Roswell

As a recent Auburn transplant, I had no idea of what to expect when I set out to explore my new neighborhood of East Cobb. I was on a quest for delicious food … and drinks! Just a short drive from my house, and Buckhead for that matter, I stumbled upon historic Roswell. I knew that the Atlanta area would be full of wonderful surprises for this small town, Carolina girl, and Roswell’s quaint charm has definitely been one of them. I had a slew of authentic eateries and bars at my fingertips, all nestled among enchanting antebellum buildings and estates. Two of my favorite things in one place””the beauty of old buildings and the draw of delectable foods and beverages!

My first stop: Ceviche Taqueria & Margarita Bar.
(963 Canton St.)

This family-operated restaurant serves up a relaxed atmosphere with genuine Mexican cuisine and libations at an affordable price.

My second stop: INC. Street Food
(948 Canton Street)

Unfortunately, I was full after my Ceviche fajitas. But, of course, not too full to indulge in this spot’s dangerously delicious spicy watermelon margarita!

Although I only had the chance to visit two restaurants in Roswell, I caught sights from all ends of the cuisine spectrum””seafood to Italian, barbecue to Tex-Mex. There’s something there for everyone, and all within walking distance of each other. This little gem of a town is certainly worth the short drive.
