Get the Tango Taco! Amazing! just try all the Tacos in general, my friends and I haven't come across a bad one yet. Try the quesidillas as well. Awesome music on Friday's and Saturdays. On Staurdays you can get away with dancing the night away...at least until 1am, then you gots to go. Don't get the quinoa Salad, its cold. The staff is super nice and super down to earth. You feel at home here. Its the best for late night after a play, its right down the street from the Fox Theatre - Valet! Check it out, you will not be disappoint...ooooh yeah and sit on the patio and see the Atlanta sights.

Love the Churros and the Margaritas
Best deal in town for a picture of great margaritas. The service has always been exceptional and I love the tacos. Stay away from the rice - pretty dry and unappetizing. But, the churros are the best that I've ever had - DO have dessert!!

well above average
Mexican food afficianados in Atlanta will have eaten at least a dozen mediocre-to-outright-bad undistinguished and indistingushable Mexican spots here. I'm pleased to say that Escorpion is at least one notch above this level. My wife and I took advantage of the Midtown restaurant week pris fixe menu to enjoy flautas de chorizo, a romaine salad, and tacos with carnitas and braised chicken. Sadly, this isn't that Atlanta unicorn, the restaurant with good traditional carnitas, but the braised pork in my carnitas tacos was tasty enough, and the other three items were all delicious. The mandatory Mexican kitsch decor is also less kitschy and more edgy than most. "Complementary" ($1 + tip) valet parking is a plus in this part of Midtown.

Great Overall Experience
I dined at Escorpion with a friend about two hours before a concert at the Woodruff Arts Center nearby. The food was great (had the shrimp enchiladas, queso fundido, and Flan) the price was about right for the type of cuisine and the service was good. The restaurant sits on a corner lot, so if you're dining outside, beware of noise from street traffic (motorcycles and honking horns)

Perfect Midtown Eatery and Bar
I loved this place. The food was great, the service was very friendly and attentive.
They have two nice sidewalk patios, one loud and energetic on Peachtree, and a quiter side patio where smoking is allowed. It seems like it has a lot of local patrons, which bodes well for its quality.
Overall, a great place for drinks, friends, and delicious Mexican meal!

Food is amazing
If you have been to this restaurant before you owe it to yourself to try it again. There is a new chef and the food is amazing. Best ceviche in Atlanta.

Ate my goat and ran...
My wife and I went to Escorpion before a play nearby at the Fox. Our waiter really worked to accommodate us on time, which made the meal much more relaxing. The chicken empanada was the best thing we had- delicious. The pork tamale was also good, and spicy. The goat taco was interesting, and nice, but not great. I give them credit for offering something that is rare outside of Buford Highway. I have had better fried fish tacos, but not bad.

Maya was an excellent server.
Maya was an excellent server. Hosts were very accommodating bc they didn't have written down that I increased the number of people the week before but still made a bigger table happen quickly.
