Still fabulous after all these years

I lived in Atlanta in the late '80's, and was in walking distance to Taxco back then. It was always tasty and cost effective. I'm thrilled to see that they are still there and still great. Their sopa de pollo spoiled me for all others, and the rest of the good is still great as well. So glad to... read more

Spouse and I stopped on the way to a concert at Chastain based on the reviews. We are Texans and hold pretty high standards for Mexican food (having moved to Atlanta from San Antonio). I thought the meal was fine, not outstanding, but good basis fare. Thought the chips were on the dry side and the salsa pretty tame. Service... More

I see lots of good reviews, but we must have gone on a bad night. We had a party of 4 adults and 6 kids so this was a fair number of orders. Plates were brought out to everyone over a period of 20 minutes, so some of us ate, some of us watched. Portions were small. The quesadilla dripped... More

Can't say enough good about this local dive - truly that after being in this location for over 30 years! Moved here about 6 months ago and several friends recommended it. We probably eat here at least twice a week - can't cook it ourselves for the price they charge. Their pico de gallo is so, so good. I haven't... More

We count on this as our go-to mexican restaurant for lunch and dinner. The chicken soup is loaded with chicken, avocado, tomatoes and rice. The burritos and tacos are as you would expect without the "canned sauce" taste. The margaritas are ok.

The food was spicy and good. More of an authentic Mexican food than perhaps across the street. The service out on the patio was not good. It was like hit or miss trying to get someone to take a drink order, dinner order, etc.

I am constantly amazed that many Mexican restaurants take a simple concept but can't implement it correctly. This place does it right. There's not a lot fancy going on. But what they do they do right. Tortilla chips come out warm. Sauce is made fresh. Burritos and tacos are just what you would expect.

Mexican food, in my opinion, is one of those varieties of food that is really hard to mess up. That being said, Taxco is great and delicious. The food is neither super cheap nor expensive. The drinks are great and beware the monster sized margarita haha. My wife got one and underestimated the size of the thing, and we ended... More

I have been told by some of the tripadvisor experts, that if you review fast food restaurants near your house on a regular basis that tripadvisor will make you a designated expert. Well since Taxco is about a mile or two from my house and it costs about $10 a person without alcohol, I think that it qualifies, so I... More
