Description: At Tin Lizzy's Cantina, we're known for our refreshing margaritas, friendly service, lively music and of course, our FlexMex cuisine. What is FlexMex you ask? It's similar to what people call Tex-Mex, but with a little more flair. Not only does it perfectly describe our menu, which is comprised of and influenced by many cultures, FlexMex is also an attitude or experience that evokes a feeling of belonging and pure awesomeness. We are proud of our Atlanta-based roots and we have locations all over the city to serve you over 25 gourmet soft tacos, shareable dips, crisp salads, hot skillets, specialty margaritas and more. Join us for lunch, dinner or late-night drinks, and catch the latest sports action on our HDTVs or stop by five nights a week for live music.

“Awesome chips & salsa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

After hearing about this restaurant from our favorite DJs, we decided to stop by on a Sunday for a quick lunch and to watch some football. We sat outside. The weather was amazing and so was the people watching. The chips are not complimentary but SO worth the money. We ordered items that supported "Bert's Big Adventure". The food was very good, service was so-so. We would like to go again.

“Good service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This is a casual restaurant whose prices are reasonable; both the service and the food are good.
We've been for both lunch and dinner and prefer lunch b/c it's not as crowded. Lots of drink choices + some pretty creative tacos!
If you go on a night when there is live music, it's great to sit outside, but often impossible to have a conversation. (As is often the case.) We enjoy their outdoor area, and we've always had good service AND food!

“The Most Fun Dinner (almost ever)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Was at Tin Lizzy's on trivia night and sat on the porch upstairs overlooking Oakwood Cemetary. Really good "bar food" and great trivia night and fun "retro" music the night we were there.

“Fun and Good Eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Great Mexican restaurant within walking distance of many of the hotels in the Dunwoody area. The atmoshpere was great, the drink specials were nicely priced, and the food was excellent. I'd defnitely eat there again.

“Good Food, a "B+" experience at Perimeter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This was the first visit to Tin Lizzy's for my wife and I. We were seated promptly on a busy Saturday night. We orered the chips and guacamole. We didn't care for the seasoning n the tortilla chips and the waitress promptly brought us unseasoned ones. The three tacos I had were good and my wife's Philly quesadillas were tasty. The waitress did forget to bring my Coke Zero. It was very loud as several college football games were going on but this didn't bother us. Overall, a good experience and I think we'll give Tin Lizzy's another spin in the future.
