Had the quesadillas. HUGE portions! Delicious! The customer service was just so so. Our waitress was waiting tables AND running the bar, so she was not very attentive due to how busy she was.

The service was great and the food was good and well priced. A cute fun atmosphere added on. Inside or Outside patio dining with a nice street view if you are into people watching. It was overall a pleasant place to eat and even better if you need a good place with the kids.

Service although friendly was slow. It wasn't crowded either. Outdoor balcony seating was nice. Food was good but didn't have much flavor.

We were looking for late afternoon spot where business colleagues could have a drink and some food to hold us over to dinner. As Texans, we weren't expecting great Mexican food in Atlanta, but liked the second floor balcony overlooking Peachtree on a lovely afternoon, and figured we could get a decent cocktail and some nachos. The cocktails were fine,... More

My meal cost $28 - one main and one alcoholic beverage. The meal was enormous and tasty. The drink came in a plastic glass which was pretty unimpressive! Service was friendly and reasonably fast (they were not busy). By far the most memorable part of the meal was sitting outside on the balcony on a warm autumn's evening, enjoying the... More

I have eaten here a few times and food is always fresh and good. The service is always a little slow. This evening that I went, there was no one at the hostess stand and we had to wait. Once we were seated our waitress that came to the table was much stronger in Spanish than English. I had a... More

Not the worst Mexican food I've ever had, but a far cry from the best! Flavorless, watery salsa with the chips (not complimentary, which we are used to getting). I got the chicken burrito. Meat was tender, but Ranchero sauce was again flavorless and the tortilla itself (as well as the rice) was mush. Hubby got steak tacos devoid of... More

Visited during a work layover whilst staying at the nearby peach tree plaza. My friend and I had the frozen margarita with the upturned bottle of corona in it. Tasty drink and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony people watching. Would go here again for drinks next time I'm in ATL.

Customer is definitely not a priority at this place! The only time we saw our server is when she took the order and that was it! The food was horrible - in which universe do you just throw a raw onion and tomatoes on the nachos??? We couldn't get extra plates or silverware on time. If it wasn't for a... More

We had one night in Atlanta only, so Jalapeno Charlie was an obvious Downtown dinner solution. (Hard Rock Café and Hooters on the opposite corners). Nice view from the upper floor balcony and excellent food. Very nice and friendly waitress as well, hence an over-all great experience and a nice evening-out in Atlanta.
