I enjoyed the pork and beef enchiladas with refried beans and rice. There was so much food that I barely ate chips and dip and didn't touch the salad. I haven't eaten Mexican food in a long time, but it is one of my favorite cuisines. The service was good and the meal satisfactory.

On an out-of-the-way street by itself, Nuevo Laredo seems an unlikely Mexican food institution at first glance. However, the crowds waiting for a table on the deck outside the restaurant aren't wrong. Nuevo Laredo blends american preparations (free chips and salsa, large portions of rice and beans) with authentic Mexican flavors (mole), to create a familiar, yet delicious menu. Cap... More

We waited just a little over an hour....watching as similar sized parties came in and were seated ahead of us. The hostesses seemed confused and clearly the... More

I absolutely love Nuevo Laredo and visit here as often as I can. The Cadillac margarita is great -- one is all it takes for me. Their fresh salsa and brisket are wonderful.

Nuevo Laredo is by far the most authentic Southwestern food I've eaten since moving to Atlanta. The restaurant is great. It's a classic small house turned into a restaurant. The bar with 5 seats is a nice touch. I had the beef and pork enchiladas. The beef was a bit greasy, but both sauces were really good. The rice and... More

I had the chicken mole tacos, which honestly were the best I have ever enjoyed! Just the right amount of spice. Go early because it gets crowded!

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.

Thank KimsHusband
