i met my son and grandson at Nuevo Laredo Cantina on a Friday, late afternoon. We got there just in time to get a table before the rush. We were promptly seated and were served by a polite, helpful and knowledgeable waitperson. The menus is extensive and predominantly Tex Mex. I tried the chicken diablo, a generous portion of white...

Very good Margaritas, great salsa and extremely well done authentic Mexican food. We keep going back for a reason, you just can't beat it. Do yourself a favor and order the Queso Flameado con Chorizo as an appetizer. Thick queso served with pico de gallo and finely chopped chorizo sausage that you eat with flour tortillas. You can split an... More

Where to start - well the pitcher of Texas Margaritas with Queso their delicious corn chips and super fresh homemade salsa. Have tried and totally recommend the brisket, beef fajita, chicken and diablos tacos!! Husband loves the burrito. Very busy place despite the off the path location. Noisy and fun. All of the sauces on the table were tasty and... More

When you have trouble finding a parking place you're generally going to get good food. That was the case here. A great menu of thing not ordered by a number. The service was very good and the Margaritas were excellent. We will return for more.

This restaurant is always crowded, especially on Friday and Saturday nights. The margaritas are excellent and the Mexican food is as good as at any restaurant in Atlanta.

Took some friends here for their first time, I have been several times. The service is really good, the food is consistently done well. The portions are huge and the price is worth every penny. The wait can be a little long especially on Friday and Saturday nights but well worth it. This evening I had the fajitas which were... More

Bartenders at the Marriott turned us on to this place and it will forever live on as a favorite place. On long weekends I find myself thinking I could hop a quick flight to Atlanta and head to Nuevo Laredo for a great meal. Like the bartender said, if you didn't know it was there, you might drive right on... More

This is a class Mexican Restaurant. It is often very busy and catching an off hour will speed your arrival at a table. The food is a complex mixture of Mexican spices and they will put so much food on your plate it will be a challenge to eat it all. Everything I have eaten here was excellent. They have... More

I've been going to, and turning people on to Nuevo Laredo for years, and I'll tell you why! To start with, MJ & the entire staff are Fabulous! Patricia makes a mean Margarita at the bar, for starters. Once you order your meal and start eating, you'll fully understand why I love this place so much. Beginning with the homemade... More
