If all goes as planned, there will soon be another alcohol vendor in Tucker.
A local businessman has applied to DeKalb County for a license to open a beer growler in Tucker. Laurie Morrison, co-owner of the building at 2323 Main Street, told Tucker Patch that an application has been submitted to the county for part of her premises to be used as a beer dispenser and that it should open by March 2013. "He's started working on the space, but doesn't want to go too far before he gets the go-ahead," Morrison said. She added that it shouldn't be a problem and that the Main Street Tucker Alliance is "all for it." Morrison, who runs the Main Street School of Art, described the applicant as a "family man who's lived in Tucker for ages" and said this will be his first venture in the growing growler trend.

New Mexican eatery gets kudos from the popular online service.
Las Colinas Mexican Grill, which opened on Main Street in May, is getting attention from Scoutmob, the website and phone app responsible for offering stellar deals on restaurant meals, among other things.

The grill's owner, Juan …

The new Las Colinas Mexican Grill on Main Street is already developing a loyal fan base.
Tucker is spicing up its local cuisine with the fresh arrival of Las Colinas. Located on Main Street, Las Colinas is a Tex-Mex fusion that will excite your taste buds and leave you wanting more. “It's Mexican food, but at the same time we try to incorporate things so that it is Americanized,” said Juan Ramirez, General Manager at Las Colinas. “We can't have too many spices. We have a lot of Anglo people that aren't used to it. But at the same time, we have the Mexican taste to it – so it is Tex-Mex.” Native to Georgia, Las Colinas has graced the Lithonia area for twenty-three years before deciding to take on the challenge of expansion to Tucker. “It's a family owned restaurant. Las Colinas has been around... [s]ince 1989. I think it was …
