Good food. High prices.

Really good Mexican food and the salsa. But everything a few dollars higher than what you'd expect, unless you're used to this price range in Atlanta. Had the brisket Barbacoa and it was pleasant-boiled or stewed somehow. It's not as good as proper smoked brisket BBQ, but I wasn't expecting that... read more

Just got back from this spot and wanted to write this review. I have to concur with the majority of folks and say that was some of the best quality Mexican food that I have ever had. My wife and I are "foodies" and we know quality when we see it...My wife had the Crab Enchiladas and I had the... More

Best authentic Tex mex in town. I took my mom who was visiting from out of town for lunch and it was the best Mexican food she had ever had. The lobster tacos and brisket burrito are the best and you can only get it here. Go during lunch to be seated right away. Service is fast and friendly.

We ate at Nuevo Laredo at the recommendation of a friend prior to a college football game in Atlanta. What a treat! The food was delicious! And the margaritas were even better! I understand the place is packed at night. We were able to get in on a crowded Saturday, but the service was excellent nevertheless.

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.
