“Best margaritas! Quick service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I live around the corner from Los Bravos & it's the best neighborhood restuarant to enjoy in the area. The staff can quickly accommodate for large crowds & separate checks, the food's a Mexican delight, & the margaritas are strong! Their Thursday $2.50 8oz margaritas are a steal & sometimes perfect for a smaller dose of a drink to avoid so many calories. I would suggest the Quesadilla Renena or mixed fajitas.

“Decent Mexican option if you so desire”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

If you are looking for Mexican food and at a decent price, Los Bravos is a good choice. We dropped by at lunch and sampled their food. For what it is, you can't complain.

I went with the Tacos de Carne Asada which were delicious.

“Very good for what it is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

Los Bravos serves basic Mexican dishes and does so decently. It is not gourmet Mexican cuisine and it is not where you would take someone on a first date. But, it is a place you can come to and relax on a regular basis, where the staff will remember you and offer you a smile, and (with one exception) you have very friendly staff. I can usually get them to replace the rice and beans for just avocado and no one gives me any drama. If you have kids, no one will look at you weird if they happen to be having a "moment".

I dont honestly understand the reviewer who says the staff cannot speak English. I have been going to THIS location for 5 yrs+ and the language has never been a barrier. Do they have an accent? Yes. But if that makes someone not speak English in someone's mind, what can you do.

“The food was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

I had a taste for some Mexican food and a friend recommended Los Bravos in Smyrna, Georgia. I went and was happily surprised at the taste of the food. It was so god that I went back the following day.

The shrimp were huge and tasty! The food was seasoned well but not too seasoned. The portions of food was well worth the value.

The food reminded you of home!

“Dirty and greasy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2008

Los Bravos got a B on the health test and it is pretty clear that the resaturant is not very clean. The waiters and waitresses do not speak much English, so it is hard to communicate with them but they have never gotten an order wrong. The food seems like it is frozen because it is often cold and the chesse dip always gets hard. I always feel sick after I eat there. There are definitely better Mexican resaturants in Atlanta.
