Another delicious meal from our favorite Mexican restaurant. The brisket tacos and carne asada tacos are my fave. Queson go flamed appetizer a must. Can be noisy but fun! Quick and consistent. Love their chips and salsa and I am from Texas!

Crowded, but very good service and excellent food - make sure you get the real Margarita, not the one that uses a pre-mix (they are two different items on drink menu)!

Went with a party of 7 after a Georgia Tech football game. The place is very small but they got a table for us pretty quick. Good Mexican food. I had the brisket which was one of their house specialties. The serving was huge and a bit spicy - but very good.

First time here and we live around the corner. We have been wanting to see what all the fuss was all about because it's always packed. This was by far the best mex rest in Atlanta that I have tried so far. The fish taco was awesome and everything was fresh.

If you are going to dine here, keep in mind that the place is small and they don't take reservations. To get a seat on any day of the week, particularly for lunch, get there early or you will have a long wait. The chips are nice and crunchy and they have more of a salsa cruda rather than a... More

I would have given a four star rating but the cheese in the cheese enchilada was not melted and in fact cold even though the plate was very hot. Also, the child's quesadilla tasted burnt. The brisket burrito was very good. They make a very good mole sauce and the salsa is very tasty. The server was attentive but not... More

Heard from word of mouth that if you want authentic and amazing Mexican food then this is the place. Absolutely fell in love with the decor/ambiance, humble and wonderful staff and seriously just amazing food. Can't go wrong with any menu item. Gotta go here!!!

This was our first visit and we had high expectations. The hostess was borderline rude and tried to seat us at a table where there was no way to sit at the chair as the tables were so tight. The woman whose chair was in the way had her entire leg in a cast and could not move at all.... More
