I was hoping for the "famous" turkey burger but they were unavailable that night but what I had was tasty. The people were friendly. I hope to eat there again.

We enjoyed pur meal. When we were presented with the bill, it had an automatic 15 percent"covid surcharge". It was explained to me the it insurred that the wait staff would get tipped. To bad because I give 20-25 percent.

I’m guessing it’s location, because the food was excellent, the drinks were great and the service was wonderful.

There was a guy inside slowly moving chairs off the table, but never came to the door to ask if we needed anything. Ended up going next door that opened early.

Staff inside who could see us. Finally, at 12:02PM, the waitress cracked the door and said, "We aren't going to open for another 45 minutes or so. I guess it was really busy last night, and they didn't prep for today." I said, "We have a noon reservation." To this, she replied, "Yea, I don't know what to tell you about that." From there, she stared at us until we threw our hands up and walked away. I have never had a more unprofessional encounter in my life! I would never recommend this establishment to anyone.

The food is good, but it's not unusual. The chef was willing to adapt our orders to our diet at no extra charge. There is a wide range of standard Mexican dishes. Service was very good - friendly and attentive without being overly attentive. We were able to order and eat within an hour which was important for our schedule. This is a restaurant I would go to if it were convenient, and I would enjoy it, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here.

On the day of the big event when everyone arrived they were closed due to the holiday. Nobody from Big Kahuna staff bothered to call and let me know. Their website even showed that they were open. If you have a reservation double check before arriving!

If you are look for good tacos or salads, would suggest stopping by.

I thought the price for burger, fries and soda was a little on the high side, but it's downtown Atlanta, so probably reasonable, considering the area. Nice casual place. Diverse menu. I'll go again...

The service was immediate as well as the food. The lightly battered fried oysters were fresh and hot. The drinks were great. Overall the menu covered the spectrum of food but we settled for the steak,shrimp and chicken fajita. Wonderful. One note: If it gets crowded it will be because there are too many tables in a small space.
