At Tin Lizzy's Cantina, we're known for our refreshing margaritas, friendly service, lively music and of course, our FlexMex cuisine. What is FlexMex you ask? It's similar to what people call Tex-Mex, but with a little more flair. Not only does it perfectly describe our menu, which is comprised of and influenced by many cultures, FlexMex is also an attitude or experience that evokes a feeling of belonging and pure awesomeness. We are proud of our Atlanta-based roots and we have locations all over the city to serve you over 25 gourmet soft tacos, shareable dips, crisp salads, hot skillets, specialty margaritas and more. Join us for lunch, dinner or late-night drinks, and catch the latest sports action on our HDTVs or stop by five nights a week for live music.

fun, casual spot

great drink menu, good food- don't really consider this a mexican restaurant- more of a taco, nacho, quesadilla place. It got a bit loud at one point but a fun place overall

This is a great location for a quick lunch. The servers understand when you have more time to relax and when you need to hurry. The tacos and salads are delicious. I highly recommend the guacamole here!

We visited Tin Lizzy’s on a Saturday evening. We arrived with a party of 6 at around 5:00pm. We were told it would be about 15 minutes and that’s fine. 30 minutes later no word from anyone. We stopped the hostess and asked again. She said we would be seated shortly. Another 10 minutes passes and we bypass the hostess... More

If you're looking for amazing tacos, there's much better. If you're looking to drink lots of beer while watching football and sop it up with some pretty good bar food, this'll do.

I've been hearing about this place from friends, finally was able to try it when I was in town 2 months ago. Food and drink is superb, Margarita was delicious! We tried the skillets as well and it was amazing! The southern comfort skillet is my favorite!!! This place is a walking distance from our hotel and the concert venue... More

My friend's and I ate here while at DragonCon. We LOVED it. We split some Korean BBQ nachos and each got a taco. I can't recall what taco I had but it was good and the nachos are a must in my book! I'll definitely come back.

First of all, I work across the street and find myself here a couple times a week. Still have not tried all the different tacos...but, now they have chili. Oh, the chili is really good. Have a cold beer at the bar with Jess and be sure to say hi to Aaron, the GM. Plenty of tequila and the chips... More

Went here for a business dinner. Chips and queso for appetizer were great. There is a spice on the chips that I was not used to. Chicken quesadilla was so so. Food seemed pretty expensive for a Mexican restaurant. Staff was attentive and could not have been more helpful. Manager came over several times to make sure that all was... More

Tin Lizzy's was a short walk from our hotel in midtown. The food was delicious. I had veggie tacos and they were very flavorful and a great vegetarian option. The staff could have been more attentive, but other than that it was great. If you get hot easily, do not sit outside. It was only about 68 degrees outside and... More
