The Joint: Taco Criss Mexican Restaurant & Bakery


From Staff Reports

Everyone has their “go-to” place to eat. It might be with linen tablecloths and waiters in ties, or where you throw peanuts on the floor and carve your initials in the wooden tables. Whatever and wherever, it’s your “joint.”

There are lots of these places around here, and we’re out to find them all in The Joints column. This month – it’s Taco Criss Mexican Restaurant & Bakery in Newnan.

Taco Criss Mexican Restaurant & Bakery

Let’s just start off by saying you’re not going to find a Lunch No. 9 special or a Speedy Gonzales – not that we have a problem with either, mind you. What you will find are some upscale authentic dishes that will have your mouth watering just reading the descriptions.

At first glance, one would think it is just a bakery. But Taco Criss Mexican Restaurant & Bakery is a whole lot more. We can honestly say there are several dishes we have not had before, and they were all delicious.

Especially enjoyed their tortas, which is pretty much a taco supreme in a killer hamburger-like bread. Their tacos, served with onions, cilantro and lime, come in a lot of flavors: steak, beef tongue, chicken, chorizo, seasoned pork, fried pork and more.

Fact is, you can pick your favorite protein with just about any dish. And that would include fajitas, sincronizadas and several of their house specialties. Don’t forget to check the latter out.

With a screened in porch, it’s a perfect place for a date out, lunch or dinner. And don’t forget about the bakery for dessert. A great “joint” we visit often.
