Change isn’t always good, especially when it’s to something we like. So when the new Blu Cantina opened in East Atlanta Village earlier this year after the original location’s roof collapsed, we weren’t sure how we would feel about it. Thankfully, while the space is bigger, brighter, and a little further east than before, they still serve the same great Tex-Mex. Everything on the menu is consistent and solid, but regardless of whether you post up at the bar with a friend, have a margarita on the patio, or just grab something to-go, make sure to order the steak fajitas and the wings, which are some of the best in the city.
