I admit that I am hard on Mexican Restaurants. I grew up eating homemade Mexican food every day of my life. I do not like Mexican restaurants that sell food smothered in some sauce or cheese and try to pass that off as Mexican cuisine. Take it from this skeptic, this place has the BEST Mexican food around. And the drinks are outstanding too.
This is always a solid choice for dinner in downtown Atlanta. The drinks are wonderful. Many different, artfully crafted margaritas and a nice wine selection. Great strawberry guac (yes it's odd but wonderful)!! The tacos are unique and delicious. I've never had a bad meal in my over 10 visits. Defiantly highly recommended.
My drink was a great start and was like a citrus margarita with jalapeño so was a nice kick and not too sweet. My husband had the steak tacos which were well seasoned and perfectly cooked, I had the Mexican White Shrimp which had a light, very flavorful slightly spicy sauce and the greens and white beans which was the perfect side and the kale was fresh and healthy and not over cooked.
They have an excellent gluten free menu! I have Celiac Disney and did not get sick eating here. The only thing I wished was different was where we sat. We were seated in between a big group of businessmen and a lovey dovey couple that couldn't keep their hands off each other. I would have stayed for dessert (which looked wonderful!) but they made me feel uncomfortable. There were many other tables in the restaurant we could have been seated at, minor thing that didn't take away from how wonderful their food was! LOVED the guacamole and salsa sampler! They food was a little bit more pricey than I'm used to. The decorations were so cool too. If I'm ever in Atlanta again I would definitely come back!
The best Mexican restaurant hands down in the downtown. The food is of high quality. It's a little on the pricey side but usually worth it.
