We had some time to kill while waiting for a show across the street so we popped in to Cescas for a snack and drinks. Food was great and drinks were awesome. Service tonight was fabulous! Can’t wait to return.

A regular feature for me in Andersonville. The food is good, and the wait staff very friendly. And, now with their liquor license the place is complete with great margaritas.
