Restaurants in Georgia

These are some of the restaurants in Georgia where we have eaten.

Tifton, GA restaurants are on a separate page.

Main Hua Chinese Restaurant
255 East Monroe Ave.
Ashburn, GA 31714
Ph: 229-567-9069

We first went to Main Hua Chinese Restaurant back in 1995. We went there so often, in fact, that we ate our completely through the menu -- each time trying something new, until we had ordered each entrée at least once. We returned to Ashburn more than 25 years later, wondering if they would still be open and if it would still be the same owner. Yes! The owner is still there, working diligently to provide good food and good service. The restaurant has expanded, and now offers a Chinese buffet for lunch and dinner. It's a bargain. You'll find Main Hua in a small strip mall, sharing a large, RV friendly parking with the Piggly Wiggly grocery store.

Bubba Jax Crab Shack
1700 W Hill Ave
Valdosta, GA 31601
Phone: (229) 469-4368

Bubba Jax Crab Shack. Go there. Have oysters. That could easily be the review for Bubba Jax Crab Shack. Except, then you might miss out on the shrimp grits, and po boys, and crab cakes, and all the other scrumptious offerings. Everything we ate there was excellent. The service was better than good. Prices for the fresh seafood dishes aren't much more than fast food joint places. But, back to the oysters. They were succulent, almost buttery, with no grittiness and no fishy taste. Bubba Jax Crab Shack has reasonable RV parking.

Tri-County Seafood Market and Restaurant
401 S Pecan St., Unit H
Cordele, GA 31015
Ph: 229-513-3397

You’ll find Tri-County Seafood Market and Restaurant tucked away in a Cordele strip mall. It’s not fancy. However, the seafood is fresh, the service very good, and the prices are decent. We had oysters and catfish, both fried to perfection. My onion rings had a crispy cornmeal coating. Bob said his carrot raisin salad was the best he’s had in years. Other diners had plates with shrimp and clusters of crab legs, and it sure looked as though they were enjoying them. Tri-County Seafood Market and Restaurant is a homespun café, friendly for lunch or a casual dinner. The parking lot can easily accommodate even large RVs.

Passage 2 India
2910 N Ashley St
Valdosta, GA 31602

Passage 2 India offers an Indian food lunch buffet, which we enjoyed. They also have a menu, and are open for dinner. The cafe is in a strip mall, behind Captain D’s. Although it has an Ashley Street address, we find it easier to get there from Patterson Street. If going in from Patterson St., look for the sign with Brother’s Grill and Indian buffet – that’s where you want to turn into the parking lot. There is plenty of parking, even for large motorhomes and fifth wheels.

Rancho Grande of Fitzgerald
708 S Grant St #3
Fitzgerald, GA 31750
Phone: (229) 423-2323

The lunch buffet at the Rancho Grande of Fitzgerald surpassed our expectations! More than a few basics, it included specialty items, too. We were happy to find the food closer to authentic Mexican than what is often served in Mexican restaurants in the U.S.A. Rancho Grande is busy with a lunch rush. If you are in a large RV, plan to arrive before or after the peak lunch and dinner hours, and parking should be fine.

Esparza's Mexican Restaurant
611 N Irwin Ave
Ocilla, GA 31774
Phone: (229) 468-7037

Esparza's Mexican Restaurant is a small town Mexican restaurant, with excellent food and service. The atmosphere is jovial, with customers and staff visiting and having a good time. I highly recommend the chile relleno. Esparza's Mexican Restaurant is located in a strip mall, with adequate parking for RVers.

La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant
247 E Monroe Ave
Ashburn, GA 31714   
Phone: (229) 566-0278

La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant served us a very good dinner. My chile rellenos were stuffed with meat and cheese, and came with a large tossed salad, instead of the usual beans and rice. Bob had a combination of some sorts, and it was huge. We had enough left to take home for a tasty Mexican food lunch the next day. The service was good. As with many restaurants, lunch prices are less than dinner prices. La Hacienda Mexican Restaurant is in a strip mall that shares a large parking lot with a grocery store. There is ample parking for even the largest motorhomes and trailer combinations.

Los Compadres Mexican Restaurant
1005 8th St.
Tifton, GA 31794
Phone: (229) 387-0790

Los Compadres Mexican Restaurant serves delicious Mexican food. Service is friendly and efficient. Atmosphere is quiet and pleasant. Prices are very reasonable. The lunch specials are downright inexpensive! My chile relleno came with a ground beef and cheese sauce on top, and a generous side of guacamole. Even the rice is flavorful! Los Compadres Mexican Restaurant is RV friendly, with plenty of parking.

Morehead's Country Store
1962 GA Highway 32 W
Ocilla, Georgia 31774
Phone: (229) 831-5557
Physical Location: Irwinville, Georgia

Morehead's Country Store has a hot food bar. Some folks refer to it as a buffet or a buffet bar, but it is not a serve yourself, eat all you want buffet. You select from whatever meats and side dishes are available when you are there, telling the clerk what you'd like, and she dishes it up for you. It seems most meals are to-go. However, they have long rows of community tables, if you want to stay and eat there. Breakfast is best early; get the brown link sausage! The fried oysters on the Friday night seafood "buffet" are some of the best I've ever eaten. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We're becoming regulars at Morehead's Country Store! There's plenty of room for RV parking.

La Lomita Mexican Restaurant, Fitzgerald, GALa Lomita Mexican Restaurant, Fitzgerald, GA

La Lomita Mexican Restaurant
125 Bowens Mill Hwy
Fitzgerald, GA 31750
Phone: (229) 426-6114

La Lomita Mexican Restaurant features a lunch buffet. The sign on the door reads, "100% Authentic Mexican Food," but with French fries, fried chicken, and hot wings on the buffet, it seemed Americanized to me. The waitresses were attentive. The atmosphere was busy, with families visiting vociferously. Prices were reasonable. Parking is fine for small RVs, and should be okay for larger ones, especially if you don't arrive during peak times.

Hibachi Buffet Grill and Sushi
4025 Watson Blvd #160
Warner Robins, GA 31093
Phone: (478) 953-5077

Hibachi Buffet Grill and Sushi is all day buffet (lunch and dinner), with the addition of a hibachi grill. The buffet includes a variety of seafood dishes. I was pleasantly impressed with the stuffed crabs. We went there mid-afternoon, not usually the best time to go to a buffet, and the food still looked and tasted fresh. Bob commented that he wished it wasn’t so far from where we are staying, as he’d like to back soon.

Peacock Grill Indian Cuisine, Albany, GAFrom the Buffet at Peacock Grill Indian Cuisine

Peacock Grill Indian Cuisine
2820 Meredyth Dr
Albany, GA 31707
Phone: (229) 496-5623

Peacock Grill Indian Cuisine offers a small buffet at lunchtime. They also have menu service, for lunch and dinner. The buffet was very limited, but we enjoyed what was there. The sauce on the egg curry was particularly flavorful, not spicy hot, but rich in layered, developed flavors. Peacock Grill is in a strip mall, with plenty of parking.

Captain D's
255 Ocila Rd
Fitzgerald, GA 31750
Phone: (229) 423-0334

Captain D's is our "go to" place for inexpensive fried fish in Georgia. Make no mistake -- it's fast food, order at the counter, with plastic silverware. But when you want a cheap meal, with fish or shrimp, it's the place. We also like the stuffed crab shells and chicken tenders at Captain D's. RV parking is iffy.

Puckett's Place Hometown Diner
116 Benjamin H Hill Dr W #10
Fitzgerald, GA 31750   
Phone: (229) 423-3441

Puckett's Place Hometown Diner uses the tagline, "Fitzgerald's Newest Tradition." Located in a strip mall in the Walmart parking lot, Puckett's Place is easy to miss. They feature scrambled ground chuck burgers and hand roll hamburgers. They have interesting combinations, such as "The Burger-Que," which is a hamburger topped with pulled pork bar-b-que. The standout of our meal were the onion rings -- deep fried crisp and served hot. Puckett's Place is order at the counter, and then they bring the paper-plated food to your table. There's plenty of RV parking, after all, it shares the parking lot with Walmart.

Hibachi Buffet
246 Ocilla Hwy,
Fitzgerald, GA 31750
Phone: (229) 423-3118

Hibachi Buffet is your average, Americanized Chinese buffet, with a hibachi grill. The price is very reasonable. The hot and sour soup was particularly tasty. We are not a sushi fans, so didn't try any of it, but they do have a variety of sushi items on the buffet. Go at peak hours for the freshest food. The parking lot is large and convenient for RVs.

Denny's Restaurant #2325
Located at the Flying J
1125 Bucksnort Rd
Jackson, GA 30233
Phone: (770) 775-6670

Denny's Restaurant #2325 has the standard Denny's menu. It's convenient if you stop at the Flying J for fuel or other services. Although at a Flying J travel center, parking was crowded, even for our small motorhome.

TA Atlanta South, GA #100
Family Restaurant
122 Truckstop Way
Jackson, GA, 30233-0967
Ph: 770-775-2076

"Family Restaurant" is on the sign outside the TA Atlanta South, GA #100 TA Petro. Menu service may be available, but the wait staff strongly encourages the buffet. The TA Petro is at the exit with two other truck stops. There's plenty of RV parking in the area.

Great Wraps #68
Atlanta International Airport (ATL)
6000 N Terminal Pkwy
Atlanta, GA 30320
Ph. (770) 953-3300

We had a couple hours layover at the Atlanta airport, and after scoping out the available food court offerings, chose Great Wraps. They may specialize in wraps, but we much preferred the rice bowl.

- - - -

1266 Lakes Blvd
Lake Park, GA 31636

Krystal is a fast food chain, apparently quite popular in parts of the south. A Krystal burger is small, square, and very moist (perhaps steamed). We enjoyed the fries -- they were served hot and crisp.
