We'd heard a lot about this restaurant and how terrific it was so we drove down from Marietta to give it a try. It was pretty good, though the tamales were a bit blah for me. I also felt like they were a bit overpriced, at least for lunch. There wasn't a thing on the menu besides the children's selection... More

Bordering on a dive, Nuevo Laredo shines in its service and food for what it may lack in appearances. It's a small, packed restaurant: hineys to elbows, almost. That being said, the food and margaritas were fantastic!

So authentic and meat was cooked perfect. I added sauteed spinach as well and it was really good. No matter wat you get all... More

Nuevo Laredo is not an elegantly appointed restaurant with a quiet atmosphere and spaced tables. It is a fun, colorful, noisy, packed in tables, restaurant in a stand alone location. It feels like you are with a bunch of friends. The shear volume of customers and wait times is a testament to the quality and value of the authentic Mexican... More

I recently visited my daughter in Atlanta. My daughter recommended that we visit Nuevo Laredo for supper. I read the trip advisor reviews and thought it looked good. My family and I arrived at approximately 4:30. My daughter had called ahead and reserved a table for six. As soon as we walked in we were seated. As I walked in... More

The food at Nuevo Laredo is excellent. Portions are very generous, and the service is fast and friendly. Be prepared for a wait to get seated, but know it's well worth it. Super fair prices, too!

Great food. Long wait for tables. Margarita were worth it. Kids enjoyed the veggie options. Guacamole was great.

I have been here many times and taken friends both for lunch and dinner. It got that casual family style dining. Home cooking is one thing that make this place outstanding. Never get tired of their tender mouth watering tasty brisket and the Texas Fajita. Don't forget the margarita too!

Without question this is the best Mexican restaurant in Atlanta. The service is very good and the food is excellent. Had enchiladas with mole sauce and it is hard to beat. Chips and salsa are very good. We took home a pint of salsa for $5.00. If you are looking for Mexican food this is your place.

My favorite Mexican restaurant! You cannot begin to imagine how god ALL the food is, and the perfect amount of spice. My favorite the white cheese dip and the chicken quesadilla, simple, tasty and spicy! It has wide variety, and every year it gets better. The environment is colorful, fast paced and all in all perfect. Sometimes it can get... More
