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.

Great Mexican Food

Excellent place for drinks and dinner. You can't beat their $4 margaritas! The menu offers a wide variety and their chicken tortilla soup is the best I have ever had. The skillets are good too!

Their selections are good. I had a couple of different tacos. They were good. Nothing special. Great service, though.

I loved the Chop Chop Shrimp tacos and also the Santa Fe Chicken tacos - both very unusual and very good! Would definitely return to Tin Lizzy's on a future trip to Atlanta!

Great seasoned chips, salsa was good also. Good menu with lots of choices. Staff was friendly and GM came around and introduced himself and asked if there was anything he could do to make us more comfortable. Would definitely come back!

Got a table right away, found parking, enjoyed the live music and drinks. I wished the Margaritas came in Margarita glasses though.

We got tacos and they were just ok - nothing special and needed some sauce, but they have great prices.

This was another "First" Visit for us. We were greeted warmly and chose to eat on the deck, which was charming with colorful umbrellas. Our server, "Yasmeen", took our orders promptly, with a smile, cheerful menu recommendations and answers to our questions. I ordered the Cantina Skillet (Gluten Free excluding tortilla strips), which included Veggie rice, grilled onions and red... More

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!
