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
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]
Best thing about the long wait is the margarita you can drink, or two!
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
Lobster Tacos/Quesadillas are amazing. Guacamole and Queso are best i've had. And please have a Margarita
Brisket Tacos are amazing!!
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

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

Try the steak tacos or the cheeseburger (I know wierd, right!) But both are worth the long wait!
Looking for something spicy? Get the Chicken Diablo Tacos!
Brisket burrito. You're welcome.
