A very good friend pointed us in the direction of Tres Amigos at 4793 Battlefield Parkway. They’ve been there about a year, next to CVS. The restaurant is nice and clean with a welcoming décor.

Wayne and I went for a late Saturday afternoon lunch and found them to be quite busy. The chips were fresh and the salsa was good. In fact, Wayne really liked their hot salsa and I had to agree, the taste was better than most of the other hot salsas we have tried. It had a better flavor and was full of onions and pieces of cilantro.

Tres Amigos has a large assortment of nachos priced from $3.50 to $11, as well as salads and appetizers. The menu consists of quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas, combinations (thirty different combinations) and specials, along with children’s plates and desserts. The restaurant also offers a vegetarian menu.

Wayne decided to order the Texas Fajitas ($12.50) featuring strips of grilled steak, chicken and shrimp, served with rice, beans, three tortilla wrappers, guacamole salad, sour cream and tomatoes. I ordered the luncheon fajitas ($6). For the luncheon special you have a choice of grilled chicken or beef. These are also served with rice and beans. If you want the guacamole salad, it is $2.75 extra. There was no pico de gallo as part of the accompaniment.

The food was delivered extremely hot and very fresh and they certainly didn’t skimp on the guacamole. The rice was moist and the tortillas had a nice flavor. I was a bit surprised by that, since to me all tortillas seem pretty much alike. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Lunch specials are served from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday with prices ranging from $4.24 to $6.

We really enjoyed our visit to Tres Amigos and feel certain that we will go back. If you are in the Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe area, you might want to stop in and check them out.

Hours for Tres Amigos are seven days a week from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.

In Agreement With Rep. Womick's Bill

I agree wholeheartedly with the bill by Rep. Womick that county clerks only marry couples of the opposite sex, but I doubt that the present Supreme Stupids would change the position of the court and fear that the time, energy and money spent to defend a legal action brought by the liberal supporters of the present state of the law would be for nothing.  There is a higher ...

Roy Exum: A Very Silly Apology

It didn’t get a lot of attention, as well it should not have, but when I heard Japanese giant Mitsubishi was offered an apology for heinous war crimes that took place during World War II, I thought it was an ill-conceived publicity stunt. But, no, in a solemn ceremony last month hosted by the Museum of Tolerance at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles, that is exactly what ... (click for more)
