Tin Lizzy’s Georgia Restaurant Neighbor Award
Tin Lizzy’s Cantina is a 2015 Georgia Restaurant Neighbor Award winner, affirming what Atlantans already know: their favorite friendly, fast casual cantina takes its good-neighbor role seriously. The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation honors restaurants across the U.S.A. with its Restaurant Neighbor Award, recognizing those that go all out to serve their communities and hoping to inspire other restaurants to do likewise. Each Tin Lizzy's Cantina works with local nonprofits in their community. For instance, the cantina celebrated National Taco Day by donating $1 for each taco sold (which chips in $7,578) to Bert’s Big Adventure to help the nonprofit group provide magical, all-expense-paid, five-day journeys to Walt Disney World for children with chronic and terminal illnesses and their families. Tin Lizzy’s donated $2,014 to help It’s the Journey and the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for breast cancer research. Additional neighborly partners include Habitat for Humanity, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Sunshine on a Ranney Day, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and others. Tin Lizzy’s, thanks for being such a good neighbor. Can we borrow a cup of queso?
