Description: 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.

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

had tacos here, they were OK. The layout of the place is nice, waitstaff is good, but my beer was barley cold.

I really love Tin Lizzy's! The food and drinks are excellent, it's not expensive, and they often have live music. There is a rooftop bar to enjoy happy hour during those hot summer nights in Atlanta. I would definitely recommend this place to people visiting the city!

Bacon Chicken Ranch Quesadilla was the best! Went to watch the ACC Championship game, seems to be an FSU place! The service was great for us, despite the previous posts I have seen.

Was recommended this place but poor service let it down. Waited ages for several rounds of drinks and the food was only okay. Out American host tipped but As a Brit it would have need a flat zero. Avoid.

Waitstaff does not communicate with each other. No soap in ladies room- gross! Orders kept coming out wrong and our waitress just never followed up consistently to see if our party of 6 needed anything! Lost revenue for sure and we will not be back.
