This time we waited 1.5 hrs on a Saturday night, and once again it was 100% worth it. The lobster tacos are our go-to. As you can see from my photo, I dove in and destroyed one of them before remembering to take a picture. They stuff so much lobster meat into them that they could actually charge more than... More

We recently visited some friends in Atlanta and when they suggested Mexican we were not sure haha but this has to be one of the best Mexican restaurants we have been to in a long time. The salsa is great and the chips are fresh. The staff is super fast and friendly. On the outside it does not look like... More

This is always a favorite place for Mexican food. The Margarita's are very good and the menu is big. They offer everything and the service is very good.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food in a great atmosphere then Nuevo Laredo is where you need to go. Hands down the best Mexican food in Atlanta and perhaps in the Southeast. Do yourself a favor and eat here, right now!!

The service was excellent, the food was amazing & authentic. We just beat the evening rush. We were in awe as to how many people were waiting and I see why now. I recommend this place to anyone. They will see me again very soon.

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

...although the margaritas were way overpriced (32 bucks for a pitcher). OK. Every o need I asked raved about this place and I couldn't wait to try it. Turns out that wasn't true. 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.
