"Really good burgers. High-quality ingredients. Friendly and accommodating staff. Clean, well-decorated restaurant. I've been here three times and ordered three different burgers (Haus burger, B&B Burger, Wild Turkey) and they were all very good. I also had a bite of my wife's andouille sausage dog and it was very tasty. The first time I tried the fries I thought they were average but the last time I had them they were seasoned with cracked pepper and were much better. They also have milkshakes, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. I have not had one of their alcoholic shakes yet but the Oreo shake was incredible." - Yelp

For some time now, Augusta's River Region has been missing a place that would cater to those who yearned for more exotic cuisine; those who wanted to step outside the box of burgers and fries or burritos and tortilla chips. Laziza Mediterranean Grill was born with that in mind. When you first walk into Laziza, you’ll discover a huge skewer of flavorful, marinated chicken rotating slowly on a vertical broiler. We slice it thin, wrap it in a warm pita, and top it with fresh toppings. Or, perhaps you’d prefer kebabs of seasoned ground beef or flame-broiled chicken served on a bed of steamed rice. At Laziza, the important thing to remember is that whether you choose the juicy shawarma, crispy falafel, or one of the four flavors of homemade hummus, everything is made FRESH when you order, with only the freshest ingredients.

This New American/Asian Fusion restaurant is in the heart of downtown Augusta."The bar has a really nice vibe and atmosphere. The whiskey menu is very diverse, but the beer selection is a little lacking.  The food is very unique, but good. I would highly recommend this place for anyone that's looking for a nice place to sit down, have a good drink, and enjoy some good food with some friends." - Yelp
