You’re probably familiar with Moe’s, Chipotle, and Diablo’s, but a new Tex-Mex restaurant is coming to Augusta.
Surcheros Fresh Mex will be located at 2907 Washington Road in Washington Crossing, a shopping center that already includes Bonefish Grill, Half-Moon Outfitters, and The Joint Chiropractic. Surcheros serves a variety of dishes, such as tacos, burritos, bowls, and salads (see photo above story). The restaurant’s menu even includes a dessert called s’mores quesadilla, which is made with a tortilla, s’mores filling, Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, and powdered sugar. Like other Tex-Mex chains, Surcheros gives customers the choice of grilled chicken, ground beef, carnitas, or sirloin steak, as well as a variety of toppings. Matthew Carter, night shift team manager for the restaurant’s Statesboro location, says Surcheros offers customers a wider variety of toppings than similar chains. “Nothing is frozen here,” states Carter. “Everything is freshly cooked and freshly marinated every day.”
Founded in 2007 by Luke Christian, the company has 20 locations, primarily in Georgia. According to the Surcheros website, new locations in Athens and Alpharetta are also scheduled to open this year. For more information, visit surcheros.com.
Surchero’s Fresh Mex competitors like Moe’s Southwest Grill has locations on Washington Road in Evans and Whiskey Road in Aiken. Chipotle Mexican Grill has two locations in the CSRA: Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway in Augusta and East Martintown Road in North Augusta. Diablo’s Southwest Grill has eight local restaurants, including Mullins Colony Drive in Evans and Wheeler Road in Augusta.
Jordan Trotter Commercial Real Estate LLC represents Washington Crossing. There are currently five spaces available in the shopping center, including a more than 41,000-square-foot anchor space that was formerly occupied by Whole Foods Market.
