6 Restaurants to Try in Douglas, GA

Flying Cowboy

I’m eating my way around Douglas, Georgia, and now you can too! Here are some restaurants you should try in Douglas: 

1. Flying Cowboy

In front of the Flying Cowboy restaurant is a crashed airplane, and the Douglas Municipal Airport’s runway runs along the back of the building. They’ve got a menu with a little bit of everything on it and, maybe most importantly, they’re the “Home of the Free Scoop” — you get a free scoop of ice cream with your meal!

Hours: M-Th 11 a.m. — 9 p.m.; F-Sat 11 a.m. — 10 p.m.

1645 S Peterson Ave, Douglas, GA 31535

2. El 1800 Mexican Restaurant

You can’t go wrong with a Mexican restaurant named for a tequila! El 1800 Mexican Restaurant serves classic Mexican food, famed margaritas, and has live music throughout the week.

Hours: Sun-W 11 a.m. — 10 p.m.; Th-Sat 11 a.m. — 11 p.m.

1600 S Peterson Ave, Douglas, GA 31535

3. The Fern Bank Bar & Grille

Located in Historic Downtown Douglas, The Fern Bank Bar & Grille is the place to go to get a great steak or angus beef burger. Don’t be put off by the use of plastic plates and utensils — the place knows how to cook! You can step out back and watch them grill your steak to be sure.

Hours: W-Sat 4 p.m. — 10 p.m.

235 S Peterson Ave, Douglas, GA 31533

4. Johnny’s Pizza

A New York-style pizza chain, what’s on the menu at Johnny’s New York Style Pizza is pretty self-explanatory. In addition to pizza, they also have pasta, calzones, sub sandwiches — all the New York foods!

Hours: M-Th 11 a.m. — 9 p.m.; F-Sat 11 a.m. — 10 p.m.

329 S Peterson Ave, Douglas, GA 31533

5. Peking House

Peking House is a Chinese buffet restaurant in Douglas. Their selection includes classics like sweet-and-sour chicken, sesame chicken, and shrimp as well as some classic Southern foods like fried chicken and mashed potatoes.

Hours: M 10:30 a.m. — 9:30 p.m.; T-Th 11 a.m. — 10 p.m.; F-Sat 10:30 a.m. — 10:30 p.m.; Sun 11 a.m. — 10 p.m.

907 S Peterson Ave, Douglas, GA 31533

6. Dairy Queen

Because this is where Kevin worked in high school, apparently I’m obligated to include it. Diary Queen is, of course, the classic ice cream and burger fast food chain, but this particular location was the first fast food place in Douglas and was also opened by a former Douglas mayor.

Hours: M-Th 11 a.m. — 10 p.m.; F-Sat 11 a.m. — 11 p.m.; Sun 2 p.m. — 10 p.m.
