Berto's Grill moving to Habersham Marketplace (update: It's open!)

Updated March 25: Berto's Grill opened out at Habersham this past Wednesday, and word is area residents were clamoring for it with lines out the door on Friday night.

Berto’s is open seven days a week and its hours are Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Reported February 15: Norberto Lopez is bringing his restaurant -- Berto's Grill -- to the Habersham Marketplace.

Most recently located at the Shell Point Plaza, Lopez closed that restaurant this weekend and aims to open the Marketplace location in March. Many also remember when he operated on Boundary Street in the building that now houses Bricks.

Lopez' fresh, handmade cuisine will continue to be featured at the new location: handmade corn tortillas, fresh tamales, and house recipe guacamole -- made fresh at diners' tables -- will remain staples of his menu. Newly added at his new location will be a bar featuring special Margaritas, and outdoor dining in a side courtyard. A serve-through window will provide courtyard diners easy access to the bar inside.


Training for 14 years at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Lopez learned the importance of quality food and friendly service. He brings both to Berto's Grill in the Habersham Marketplace.

The new address is 9A Market. Berto's will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. For more information, call  (843) 525-0500.
