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.

Very good atmosphere, rooftop seating at tables with umbrellas across the street from historic Atlanta cemetery, good service with good but mostly average, bland food. We all enjoyed our meal but really nothing to write home about. The biggest selling point here is the atmosphere, with the rooftop seating and bar. Meh.

Went with some family as it seemed like it might be a nice place to go eat. our waiter was courteous and on point, but the food was very mediocre for how long we had to wait for it. TheI'd salsa was quite bland, and the queso dip very store-bought tasting as well as being only just barely warm. If... More

Great food. Friendly staff. Bartender the night I visited was superb. Made for a great evening. Kudos to the staff. Reminded me why I loved being in the south - southern hospitality!

First time visitors who were NOT let down. Very relaxed atmosphere with outdoor dining available. Extensive variations on Tacos. There were three of us, so we decided on three tacos each and tried 9 different selections. Highly recommend this sampling. Each taco was distinctive in its own way and very enjoyable. While waiting, try the chips and cheese dip.

Love coming here to grab a few tacos and some drinks. The margaritas are a little on the sweet side so don't recommend drinking a lot without switching to beer (unless you just really like the hangovers that follow sickly-sweet drinks!). The tacos are pretty awesome - you really can't go wrong with any choice on the menu, but if... More

Recently visited the Tin Lizzy on Crescent. The restaurant itself was busy and had a cool/hip vibe to it. I ordered the Black Bean Soup for appetizer and the Chicken con queso tacos(2). The food was delicious but had a commercial taste(like eating at a TGIF's). Again, very good food though. Simple, clean presentation. Really enjoyed the scene.

I ordered a southwestern salad for lunch. It seemed to take forever for what was a bland a tasteless meal. I've heard some good things about this restaurant and might try it again.

We went to Tin Lizzie's as a family, and while I would describe the clientele as mostly adult bar patrons, we did not feel uncomfortable with 17 and 10yo girls. There is an outdoor as well as indoor seating area with a lot of televisions to watch sports. We ate in the bar area that has large open windows to... More

I've been to almost every location this place has in Atlanta but we went to the Suglarloaf location for lunch yesterday. This one is brand new so everything is nice and clean. This is by far the nicest, tamest location they have. That being said, I still loved everything about it, especially that it's so close to where I live.... More
