I must have missed something. No way this is a good Mexican place. It's hot, loud, dirty, loud, crowded, loud and dirty. Bugs on the wall. Bugs on our booth. Bugs on the table. Nasty.
Salsa was good. Tons of lobster in the quesadilla, the only really tasty item we had. The lobster tacos came out soaking wet and mushy.
I have to say, if this was once something....it's not anymore.

Excellent food and always a crowd. Get there early if you don't want to wait a while - although if the weather is nice, then they have alrge deck to sit outside and enjoy a beverage while you wait.

This place has authentic Mexican food with margaritas that are to die for. The only problem is that they don't take reservations, so be ready to wait! My favorites include the lobster taco, fish taco, cheese plate (w pico and chorrizo), and several of the specialty platters. We haven't found anything bad. You will enjoy it!

Wow, who knew this place has been around for years. I was In ATL visiting family over July 4th. I had lived in ATL for 8 years and visit often, but never been to NUEVO LAREDO CANTINA. I had real tamales baked in corn husks with beans and rice. Loved the salsa and put it on everything. It is in what seemed to be an old house with classic Mexican history and celebrity pictures on the wall. Several large parties going on and people waiting outside. Beats the Texmex chain restaurants every day.
