This Mexican restaurant is great! It has a fun vibe and a great menu. Service is superior. This is a few blocks from the Fox Theatre and is a great go-to place before the show with a Pre-Show Menu.

I had the shrimp taco plate and my business associate had the vegetarian quesadilla. We enjoyed our food. There is a pretty neat patio with seating, strong with shotgun shell light strings. It is a nice quick place to grab lunch.

Party of 2 visited mid week during evening. Very comfortable, breezy patio seating despite it being summer in Atlanta. Had two great margaritas—think you probably can’t go wrong here with those! One of us ordered chicken fajitas and they were just okay. They are marinated/sizzled...More
