The Battery at SunTrust Park is set to get its newest tenant this month.
Ford Fry's Tex-Mex restaurant The El Felix will open for lunch and dinner on Nov. 20. Chef Kevin Maxey's menu will offer Mexican-inspired staples found on The El Felix menu at Avalon in Alpharetta , as well as special menu items for The Battery eatery.
The restaurant will feature a 1947 Raymond Lowey-inspired taco truck built into the design of the restaurant, offering nachos with spicy brisket chili, queso, sour cream and jalapenos escabeche; hot tamales; steak and chicken tacos al carbon; and margaritas, allowing customers to take food and beverages into The Battery and the ballpark. Other menu items will include tacos de carnitas, made with slow-cooked pork shoulder with cilantro, onions and salsa cremosa; and an assortment of tacos dorados, pan-fried tacos stuffed with shrimp, mushrooms and cheese and enchiladas suizas.
The restaurant will be open to the public pre- and post-game, as well as during the off-season for:
- Monday – Friday: 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
- Monday – Thursday: 5 -10 p.m.
- Friday: 5-11 p.m.
- Saturday and game days: 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
- Sunday 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
