El Alazan Mexican restaurant reopens in Evans

  • Follow Local Business

A Mexican restaurant has reopened in the metro area.

After a yearlong hiatus, El Alazan Mexican restaurant has opened in a new location, in the Food Lion shopping center on Evans to Locks Road.

Previously in the Earth Fare shopping center on Furys Ferry Road, the restaurant closed in 2010 when owner Leo Garcia moved to open a new restaurant.

After one year, however, Garcia moved back to the Augusta area and said he is glad to be back in town.

"We missed our friends and the warm weather," Garcia said.

He and his parents, Jesus and Elena Garcia, and his sister, Stacy Garcia, own the restaurant.

Leo said the family chose the new Evans to Lock Road location because it is close to their home, and also close to many of their customers.

"It's a really nice area," he said. "A lot of people know us already, and that makes a big difference."

El Alazan employs eight people and could grow because the new location is larger than the previous one.

The shopping center opened in 2009 with the construction of a Food Lion anchor store.

Just what the area needs, yet

Just what the area needs, yet ANOTHER Mexican restaurant. Kind of ironic this news comes the same day that we learn people are getting fatter around here. The plethora of mexican joints around here probably has something to do with that. Its almost impossible to order anything in a Mexican restaurant that is under 1000 calories. Even the taco salads are chock full of calories and fat. Could we please get more healthy eating options around here that are reasonably priced?

Emery: don't blame the mexicans. Blame people's mouths for refusing to slow down eating.

That's like walking into a candy shoppe and complaining there isn't enough sugar-free candy!

I recently had a grilled chicken salad in a Mexican restaurant with blue cheese dressing. It was probably one of the healthiest meals I've found in a restaurant. Low carb, nothing breaded, lots of vegs.

If you don't like the

If you don't like the options, then cook and eat at home. That's the only way to stay healthy. It's not the restaurants' fault that people eat to much! and love Mexican food!!
