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.

So glad Sugarloaf is open now!

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... read more

First visit to Tin Lizzy's and I was pleasantly surprised! Great food (tacos were so good) and good drinks. Reasonable prices and a nice, rustic interior. The service was fast and our food came out very quickly! Very nice waitress as well. Can't wait to visit again soon!

I only ever go for lunch and it's good for what it is. Interesting but comfortable tacos and quesadillas. My coworkers enjoy the "scenery."

Walked right in on Friday 1/23. First time and our server Sharde was awesome. She made recommendations and ensured that our pitcher wasn't empty. We had the three amigos dip and the chips were really good/unique. We had a variety of tacos and really enjoyed the chop chop shrimp and southern comfort. The desert pear margarita was wonderful! Should have... More

The korean BBQ and Steak fiesta tacos were great. Need to add more beers on draft but good atmosphere and plenty of room for large groups.

great margaritas, excellent nachos and fast service! Around the block from the High Museum of Art, a great way to end your visit to this fantastic Atlanta cultural experience. Very reasonably priced too.

If a Mexican place can mess up a margarita, this is the place. After asking for a margarita with no sour mix, we received a pre-mixed margarita that the bartender added equal (or some other fake sweetener!) to. We asked for a 'real' margarita and specified tequila, cointreau and lime juice should be the only ingredients. Even this was awful... More

This place has everything going for it. The building itself is not much to look at, but once you walk in you'll be glad you did. The friendly hostess gave us our choice of eating inside or on the heated patio so we chose the patio. It was nice and warm due to heaters they have going. Our server was... More
