A former Delta pilot who missed the food from his old Atlanta to Baja route opened this place. Get a lobster taco. -Eli Kirshtein, Top Chef
Best thing about the long wait is the margarita you can drink, or two!
Try the Salsa - I could live off this salsa (via @Foodspotting)
The three classics they offer— house, Texas, and Cadillac— are strong and yummy! Food here is great as well, make sure you sit down for dinner instead of just drinking at the bar. [Eater 38 Member]
Go early unless of you have plenty of time to wait. I recommend the carne asada tacos and the margaritas...two and I'm toast.
The Cadillac Margarita is the best!!
Have a Margarita
Brisket Tacos are amazing!!
Lobster Tacos/Quesadillas are amazing. Guacamole and Queso are best i've had. And please have a Margarita
Be prepared for a wait no matter when you come on the weekends. Got here at 5:15 on a Saturday night and still waited for 30 minutes.
Lobster tacos are the truth!
Super long wait times
The food is good, but our waitress took out her own tip. I *might* come back.
Being from TX, this place rocks!!
Sit on the main level. Established crowd & atmosphere. Not my fave but everyone seems to love this place. Just be prepared to wait on a weekend night, and don't come if you're claustrophobic.
get the lobster tacos!
Best Mexican in Atlanta and one of my favorites in the US! Service is terrific, food is awesome but it is always packed so give yourself a lot of time beforehand due to your wait before being sat

Lobster tacos are one of the best items on the menu.

Amazing and authentic! Definitely get the chimi with extra black beans...texas margarita, yes please
Hands down the best Mexican restaurant in Atlanta!
Cadillac Crab Cakes and brisket quesadillas are amazing! Great enchiladas too. I'm originally from central California, so I've had REAL Mexican cuisine. Nuevo Laredo is the real deal!
Mole. It's the real deal.
The lobster tacos are the best
Try the crabcake taco! It's orgasmic.. It's like sex in your mouth
combination number 1 one is worth the drive from Mableton!!!
Try the steak tacos or the cheeseburger (I know wierd, right!) But both are worth the long wait!
Brisket burrito. You're welcome.
Lobster Tacos = Da Bomb!

It's all about the cebollitas. Grilled scallions with salt and lime. So simple. So incredible.
Vegetarian Tip: Rice is made with chicken stock.
Best steak quesadilla I've ever had. Amazing.
Don't miss the Specials on the chalk board near the bar. Delicious!
The chicken mole is also excellent!
Came highly recommended from an Atlanta local. I went I saw I conquered. Awesome food!
The special is not really a special everyone get free chips and salsa margaritas are pre-made not a fan of that.
Nom Nom Nom!
