New Restaurants on the Island!

Check out these two new food options on the island: California Tortilla and Fire Grill. Both of these restaurants are located in the new shopping center at the corner of Folly and Fort Johnson (where the new Publix is). California Tortilla is a national chain that specializes in fresh, Mexican burritos, bowls, and tacos. During my visit I was impressed with their cheerful and quick service as I moved through their build your own meal counter set-up. Here is a picture of my delicious fish tacos.  Across the way, you will find Fire Grill.  This is also counter service.  My kids love the hibachi with Yum Yum sauce and I enjoyed the Olgethorpe roll (vegetarian sushi).


"Katie was engaged, caring and communicative throughout the entire selling and buying process. We were aware she had other clients but at the same time felt like we were the only ones. I can't say enough positive things about working with Katie. In a profession that has a lot of fly by night people taking advantage of a hot market, Katie's professionalism and industry knowledge made her not only stand out but accelerated the selling timeline."
