Mexican at Heart -- The Best of Atlanta

A travel journal to Atlanta by sflannigan

Quote: Love Mexican food? Here's a guide to the best Mexican joints in Atlanta.
In the outskirts of the city, lies the greatest Mexican food in Atlanta. Nuevo Laredo Cantina is situated in an industrial area of the city, but close enough to 75/85 Highway that it draws large crowds- very large crowds. If going with a large group make reservations,and it's best to go on weekday nights. This colorful Mexican restaurant strays away from Tex-Mex, and stays closer to authentic-style dishes (their mole sauce is delicious). My favorite dish is the steak tacos; although simple, this has great flavor. This has been the winner of Best Mexican in Atlanta numerous time---a well-deserved award in my mind.
