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

Truly authentic the food is simple but delicious. I had the fajitas and could not finish them. The margaritas are perfect too.

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.

First time here and we live around the corner. We have been wanting to see what all the fuss was all about because it's always packed. This was by far the best mex rest in Atlanta that I have tried so far. The fish taco was awesome and everything was fresh.

If you are going to dine here, keep in mind that the place is small and they don't take reservations. To get a seat on any day of the week, particularly for lunch, get there early or you will have a long wait. The chips are nice and crunchy and they have more of a salsa cruda rather than a... More
