Tilted Kilts Opens in Buford,Ga

Tilted Kilts Opens in Buford,Ga

Tilted Kilts is a new Irish Pub located in Buford,Ga. I had the pleasure of going there yesterday to try the food and let me tell yah it was great! Their grand opening was held in March and when you walk in, its full of great spirits and lively entertainment. The space is filled with flat screen tv’s that give you that sports bar atmosphere.It was crowded ,so thats always a good sign. Two pretty hostesses sat me and my son at our table and their outfits were too cute. I normally wouldn’t take my son to an establishment like Tilted Kilts because the ladies uniforms were a bit risky but I was already there and didn’t feel like going to McDonald’s. Trust me, my son was smiling and the ladies loved him and made him feel welcome.
