TIN LIZZY’S CANTINA BRINGS FLEXMEX FLAVOR TO COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA ON OCT. 26
Atlanta-Based Taqueria Begins Southeast Expansion with First Location Outside of Georgia
ATLANTA (October 23, 2015) – Tin Lizzy’s Cantina is coming to Columbia, South Carolina, bringing its lively atmosphere, chilled margaritas and signature FlexMex flavors to a new city and the company's first location outside of its home state of Georgia. With nine locations throughout metro Atlanta and one in Augusta, Tin Lizzy's is already well-known in the Peach State as a favorite locale for fun food, fresh flavors and specialty cocktails. Now, the cantina is ready to bring the party to the Palmetto State with its 11th location opening Oct. 26 in the newly renovated Congaree Vista area of downtown Columbia.
"Opening our first Tin Lizzy's outside of Georgia is a momentous occasion for our team," says Tory Bartlett, chief executive officer of Tin Lizzy's Cantina. "We chose Columbia because of its wonderful community. Not only is it the state capitol and home of the Gamecocks, but the city's historical Vista district fits our brand perfectly. We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming, fun environment for our guests, and we look forward to serving our new neighbors in Columbia."
"The Vista has such a great energy for shopping, dining and entertainment, and we are excited to be part of it," says Ross Waller, general manager of the new Tin Lizzy's Columbia location. "We are going to be serving up fresh, flavorful Mexican favorites and look forward to being a fun destination for lunch, dinner and other social gatherings in the district."
Located at 700 Gervais Street, Tin Lizzy's Columbia is open daily at 11 a.m. for lunch, dinner and late-night dining. Sunday through Thursday, the restaurant closes at midnight; weekend hours extend until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Free parking is available around the 700 and 800 buildings.

Tin Lizzy's nine metro Atlanta locations include Buckhead, Grant Park, Midtown, Perimeter, Emory Point, Duluth, Mall of Georgia, Downtown and Kennesaw, with a 10th Georgia location in Augusta.
