Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Since 2013, 1910 Public House has melded traditional Southern cuisine with a modern seasonal and sustainable approach. It is in a historic building that creates a unique and comfortable atmosphere. It has over 20 beers on tap and hand-crafted cocktails, so there is something new to try with each visit.

Considered a premier Mexican restaurant in the Atlanta area, Taqueria Los Hermanos serves authentic south-of-the-border cuisine, with a nod to Georgia and California. The results are as delicious as they are diverse, including burritos, tacos, enchiladas, and fusion-inspired brisket enchiladas. The meal can be capped by a cocktail or a sweet treat such as the crave-able pastel de tres leches, a sponge cake with mixed fruit.

For almost thirty years, Antiques in Old Town has embraced seasonal themes and timeless pieces. The shop demonstrates a genuine love for those special items that catch your eye and hold your focus. It’s a pleasant stroll down memory lane. Whether perusing or purchasing, you’ll enjoy this store’s thoughtful presentation and knowledgeable individuals.

Things to Do

The ten-acre Lilburn City Park is an ideal space to embrace nature in a relaxing manner. The park includes a loop accessible by bicycle, skateboard, or walking. It is an excellent location for leashed pets and provides areas to get some light exercise into their day.

It may sound like all fun and games, and it still is, but the Lilburn Cornhole League takes tossing bags to the next competitive level. Spring, summer, and fall leagues take this backyard pastime into a bigger arena, pushing the pace of friendly competition.

Rock the Park is a concert series that has food trucks and vendors. Patrons can also bring their drinks and picnic with lawn chairs and blankets. The music is diverse with something for everyone. It also has reggae music events.

Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church hosts Lilburn Farmers Market on Fridays from May through August. Purveyors sell various international cuisine, fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, pet treats, baked goods, artisan jellies, soaps, honey, and more. The market is an excellent way to wind down the work week and refreshingly head into the weekend.

Come to the park on the second Tuesday of every month from May through October for Food Truck Tuesday. With an eclectic selection of sophisticated cuisine orchestrated courtesy of the mobile culinary scene and accompanied by music from the bandshell, it is a monthly event you will enjoy each time.
