With the opening of Deadwood Saloon at 66 12th St NE, the Crescent Ave restaurant strip just got a little more crowded (again). Deadwood has moved into the space that formerly housed Twisted Taco and opened with an attempt to bring something “unique” to Atlanta. Strip away the cow-covered chairs, Captain Morgan statue, and kitschy thematics, what you have is a bar hiding out as a restaurant.
The layout of the space is essentially the same; however, the patio out front is a little more refined and there is now an upstairs deck. The latter might have been there before, but I was never sober during previous visits to the space to confirm or deny that. So far, the menu looks like a mish-mash of funkified Tex-Mex and basic American food. Details after I sample it. The website is up, but still getting filled in.
