    55555 by Beatrix Balogh

    55555 by Alex Petralia

  • Greysn KThe bar tenders were very nice, and even after finding out I was under 21 continued having conversation with me. Genuine girls, and the service was impeccable.

    33333 by Christine Wilson

  • K8 L.A must in Atlanta! Try the queso and the chicken enchiladas. Service is good, beer is cold! I come here for dinner every time I'm in town.

    55555 by K8 L.

  • Creative Loafing AtlantaCreated by mixologists Adam Fox and Gilberto Marquez, the selection is built almost exclusively on tequila and mezcal — but don't let that fool you into thinking this is all lime juice and sunrises.

    55555 by Creative Loafing Atlanta

  • Creative Loafing AtlantaSeta, the vegetarian option, is full of huitlacoche, the sweet and woodsy mushroom-like fungus, as well as corn, poblano peppers, and portobellos.

  • Tom TLive a little, give the lengua (beef tongue) taco a shot, it's not bad. Also get yourself a Tequila Flight, I'm a big fan of the Tour of Mexico.

    55555 by Tom T

  • TJA nice little spot to get some tacos. Pretty good. Complimentary valet parking as well.

    55555 by TJ

  • Daniel R.Carnitas, shrimp and baja fish tacos are really good.

    55555 by Daniel R.

  • Tom W.At the risk of sounding old, this place was way to freaking loud! Having to yell across the table all night is not what I want to do at dinner. That being said the food was OK, nothing special.

    22222 by Tom W.

    33333 by Deep G.

    55555 by Eugene F.

    33333 by Tommy F.

  • Lala L.Make sure Miguel or Ivana make your drink.

    55555 by Lala L.

  • Michael F.I've been here twice. Both times the service was horrible. 1st time the server tried to take extra tip off my card. 2nd time I called in the order but they never put it in meaning I had to wait. Sad

    11111 by Michael F.

  • Stephan M.Terrible service, but the food is absolutely incredible.

    33333 by Stephan M.

    55555 by Michael S.


    55555 by Tracy T.

  • Pamela O.Skip the guajillo rice.

    55555 by Pamela O.

  • Ashley B.El diablo is fantastic! Don't be deterred by the sweet ingredients...it's not very sweet (good thing!) and it's pretty strong!

    55555 by Ashley B.

  • EaterEven if you don't think tequila is your thing, tequila should be your thing here. A smoky Mezcal Mule with rhubarb jam and ginger beer is one of many wild forays into the merits of Mexican hooch.

    55555 by Eater

  • Violet B.Romaine salad w/salmon is one of the best

    55555 by Violet B.

  • Kelli M.Great place to eat before going to the Foxx!

    55555 by Kelli M.

    55555 by Sarah B.

  • Nic R.No wait for lunch, then again, there's good reason for it.

    33333 by Nic R.

  • Mary CatherineCarne Asada Quesadilla. Delish.

    55555 by Mary Catherine

  • C C.Don't be a pussy...try the lengua taco. It's delicious.

  • 360 MediaSpend your Saturday afternoon sipping specialty cocktails and chowing down on tacos on the patio.

    55555 by 360 Media

  • Kelly Anne A.Best margaritas in ATL!

    55555 by Kelly Anne A.

  • Alex C.This place is better than most of the reviews I read but not as good as some. Skirt Steak was pretty good

    33333 by Alex C.

  • Merriah C.Pretty good food. However, the service is "almost" horrible. Our waitress somehow salvaged the total apathy the hostess presented. (Note: This was 4 hours before closing)

    22222 by Merriah C.

  • Rickey JThe Paloma with chile salt is the best tequila cocktail in Atlanta.

    55555 by Rickey J

  • JP S.Get the BBQ Pork Tacos...will not disappoint!

    55555 by JP S.

  • Rockwell H.Like others have said, the service is slow. The food is ok. Nothing to write home about. For some odd reason they will not let you create a plate with different types of tacos.

    33333 by Rockwell H.

  • Stephanie P.Delicious shrimp quesadillas, and the margaritas totally give you your money worth! I'm definitely buzzin after one!

    55555 by Stephanie P.

  • wylie AWAAY to expensive for just some good Mexican food. Robbery. I was just stupid enough to give in.

    22222 by wylie A

  • Kimberly W.To continue! Had dirty plates stacked for an hr, no water or drink refills, would walk up to the table and just look at us. Im guessing that was code for "DO u need something!" And it wasn't even BUSY

    11111 by Kimberly W.

  • Kimberly W.BBQ tacos are super yummy! Drinks are made great! But, I warn you NOT to sit with a server named ERIC! Horrible! I had such high expectations bc of the owner but HORRIBLE SERVICE!

    33333 by Kimberly W.

  • Kimberly W.If I go off the service, I wouldn't return. Coming from someone who was a chef for 4 yrs & also was a server for 2 I feel like there are better ppl out there that can represent a company in a + way!

    33333 by Kimberly W.

  • Michelle PThe fried fish taco was the only edible one out of the 4 we tried... Steak and both Pork. Drinks were just ok. Not sure what they hype is about. Service was good.

    22222 by Michelle P

  • G V.Service isn't the best but goddamn I love their salsa

    55555 by G V.

    55555 by Dylan B.

  • Sheryl GAsk for Ryan- great waiter!

    55555 by Sheryl G

  • Shalya F.The best thing about this place is the wish bone in my enchilada....

    33333 by Shalya F.

  • Michael DiazAmazing chicken enchiladas and ceviche. Everything was very fresh

    55555 by Michael Diaz

  • jarvis w RThis place is to die for...where else can you get a beef tongue taco, a braised goat taco, and mahi mahi taco, with fresh ceviche for under 20 bucks?

    55555 by jarvis w R

  • Creative Loafing AtlantaEric Celeste, editor-in-chief, fancies the La Tradicional margarita at Escorpion—"simple, cheap, and the right ingredients."

    55555 by Creative Loafing Atlanta

  • Sophia M.Good service. Terrible drinks

    22222 by Sophia M.

  • Matt EHorrible service. Ok food. Don't waste your time or money.

    11111 by Matt E

  • Violet B.Skirt steak and grilled spring onions ftw

    55555 by Violet B.

  • John T.Get the unadvertised pitcher of margs. So strong and will do the trick.

    33333 by John T.

  • Jamie T.Looks like a happening place. The service is friendly. Lots of energy. My wife is digging it.

    55555 by Jamie T.

  • Dhaval KChicken quesadillas are fantastic, and for desert, the churros are worth every calorie!

    55555 by Dhaval K

  • Stu BBest items: fried shrimp tacos and seta quesadilla; the quinoa salad is light and refreshing on a hot summer day. ' traditional' margarita kind of meh.

    55555 by Stu B

  • Sophia C.You have got to try bbq pork taco!

    55555 by Sophia C.

  • Walter SHave given them four chances and this place is disgusting.

    11111 by Walter S

  • Praful G.Try the Portobello Mushroom Tacos - Tacos look real good and Mexican rice as a side

    55555 by Praful G.

  • David T.The Florida de catarina w/ cucumber foam. Yummy yummy

    55555 by David T.

  • Jake C.Bland, boring, and blisteringly expensive. Stay away.

    11111 by Jake C.

  • Mike LitherlandHad a great time - get the 5 skull margarita

    55555 by Mike Litherland

  • BuckyCarnita tacos r great. Queso Fundido has runny cream like sauce under the queso and good stuff so it is not queso fundido! But the cheesy top layer is good!

    55555 by Bucky

  • Creative Loafing AtlantaThe tacos are there to pad your belly for more booze. Use them for this purpose. Top picks: grilled shrimp, seta, queso fundido, salmon ceviche, and the quinoa dishes.

    55555 by Creative Loafing Atlanta

  • Jared D.Abandon hope all ye who try to drink here. Bartenders make ignoring you into an art form.

    55555 by Jared D.

  • Toney DavisGreat Place ! Try the de Flores Orange Margarita!

    55555 by Toney Davis

  • Trudy B.Slow service even when there's no one there. Don't bother if you expect the server to be there when you run out of something. And REALLY don't bother if you're in a hurry.

    22222 by Trudy B.

  • Savory ExposureGet the grilled shrimp tacos!

    55555 by Savory Exposure

  • Jessie MGreat drinks and friendly staff. Ask for John- he is skilled in the art of picking your perfect drink.

    55555 by Jessie M

  • Social E.Smoked tequilas, a gourmet Mexican menu that includes vegetarian options. If you don't love Mexican this place will change your mind!

    55555 by Social E.

  • Soccer D.We've seen plenty of places come and go at this location; here's hoping this one stays. The Seta Tacos were fantastic.

    55555 by Soccer D.

  • Timothy P A.So glad that this place opened.....Good atmosphere/staff

    55555 by Timothy P A.

  • Social E.A real gourmet Mexican Tequila Resto in Atlanta. Food pairings were distinctively crafted & married to Tequilas from all over the place. If you've an astute tequila palette you just found your mecca!
