Once you get seated, the food and service are great. You can order the usual tacos, enchiladas & burrito, but why bother when there are so many more interesting items on the menu The server nikki was attentive and friendly. The flour tortillas were tasty. The cheese dip was too. Overall i rate 4.5 out of 5

We waited a little bit to be seated... Well worth the wait! How interesting to be in an authentic Mexican cantina atmosphere. Everyone was tucked in close with the fantastic aroma of salsa and chips - mouth watering. Great service- fantastic menu. The walls were covered in eclectic art works that represented the owners' life, friends, and the Mexican culture.... More

I had high hopes for this place based on it's many awards over the years. It was packed when I arrived for lunch on a Friday so I suppose people like it. I thought the ambience was a cross between shabby chic and a roadside cantina in Mexico. The salsa was fresh and excellent. The rice and beans we ordered... More

Although located in an of the beaten path location,this homey , comfortable Mexican eatery is not your typical taco and burrito joint. The Sangria is terrific and the chicken with mole sauce is perfection

Reality is iconoclastic . . . or, put another way: experience shatters expectations. I have heard of Nuevo Laredo's excellence for years. A few days ago, I visited this iconic Mexican restaurant with my family for the first time. We had a good time, and the staff is very friendly, but I have no intention of returning a second time....

We went here for a friend's birthday and there were 8 of us. The hostess will tell you that ALL of your party must be present in order to be seated. A little inconvenient, but that's their rules. Signs are posted they can split checks for credit card payments up to 4 cards. Again, a little inconvenient. We understood that... More

This funky little place offers excellent food to go with the atmosphere. The menu is large enough to satisfy the most picky eater. The food is delicious. Wine, beer, margaritas, etc. are served. Sunday afternoons tend to offer immediate seating. The prices are very fair.

First, the atmosphere and decor: you know this place is authentic Mexican, just look at the owner Chance's pictures all over the walls! Very eclectic and interesting art pictures and stuff! Secondly, the food is outstanding! I always get the queso cheese dip and carne asada tacos. Put a little dip on tacos. Salsa is out of this world! Thirdly,... More

Once you get seated, the food and service are great. You can order the usual tacos, enchiladas & burrito, but why bother when there are so many more interesting items on the menu. But I gotta tell you -- no reservations & plan on waiting 45 minutes to an hour (even at 6pm)
