Dinner on Sunday

Delicious beef chimichangas and a chicken dish off the specials of the house section. Stout Texas margaritas. Salsa was homemade and yummy.

This is a cute little restaurant and not trendy. The hubby and I both had margaritas which were very good. We also ordered guacamole which was the smooth and creamy kind and also good. Salsa was excellent. Everything we ate was excellent and I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good southwest Mexican food.

There are a lot of Mexican restaurants in Atlanta, but not many good ones. This is the only really good one. It's a little out of the way but worth the drive and the wait that is always there.

We drive every Sunday from the Northside down to Atlanta for Nuevo Laredo's amazing food and friendly staff. Sundays are the best days to go and enjoy a low-key lunch or early dinner without the rush of the crowds. Order a Cadillac margarita, shrimp taco, pork tacos, burrito, just about anything you want is going to be great. The waitresses... More

Good food. Friends travel from far and near to eat here, but I don't think its worth all that. Dining area is small and packed, so don't go if you're claustrophobic.

Many great Mexican restaurants in Atlanta, but we find this the most authentic. Salsa really is amazing, more than just a pre-dinner filler as you can see the spices and veggies in each bite, which keep you coming back throughout the meal. Our party of 4 enjoyed a beef burrito, fish tacos, chicken enchilada, brisket taco and tamale. Brisket was... More

Went here for the first time and found the Mexican food to be tasty and fresh. I had enchilada's with mole sauce and the mole was one of the best I had. My wife had the crab enchiladas and she too thought they were very good. For people commenting on their service as slow, it was not evident when we... More

I've been trying for years to eat here (the wait was always too long) but I finally made it Friday night with only a 30 minute wait! We were lucky to get a parking spot right in front. Normally you have to park across the street. We sat at the bar with a couple of beers while waiting for our... More
