The food was great and sitting outside was awesome. Our service was just sort of slow. Didn't get several things until really too late or had asked for them multiple times.

The food was seriously disappointing. The guacamole was so full of fillers ( too many onions) that you could not taste the avocado. The chicken was TOUGH! Disappointing all the way around.

Very very loud. Could not hold a conversation. Waiter dumped three glasses of water on my son. Waiter was new and didn't know menu to answer basic questions.

Our waiter, Francisco, was superb.
He explained the dishes offered and even the chips and salsa were warm and delicious.

The fajitas were outstanding and keep serving everything can tell the difference when the
chips and food is not reheated.
But Francisco was the most pleasant server ever!
Keep him happy.

Cinco has the best jalapeño margaritas! The food is great and the staff are always friendly and helpful. They had a raffle for Braves tickets and we got them. Good seats too! Thanks Cinco

Had a GREAT time here. The drinks were incredible and LOVE all the food options. Our waitress was so nice and worked hard to make sure that we were happy the whole time we were there. I am very impressed and will re-visit over and over. The only downside is that it is always packed so the rooftop seating, which is awesome, is almost impossible to get. We might try to go a little earlier next time to see if we can get up there for the live music and bar.

Food is great. Service is good. They would need to increase the amount of salsa with the chip.

I have been to Cinco for lunch several times before, but it was great for our big group last week meeting for dinner. The hostess was accommodating, having a large table ready for our party of 6, and they even set it for 8, as we were unsure if 2 more would join us. It was a slower week in ATL being the 4th of July holiday week, so maybe that is why the noise level was manageable for our mini-reunion, but it was great to be able to catch up. The guacamole is always so fresh here, and there are several menu options without meat. The beer list had a moderate number of choices, but I did not check out the wines. We ordered everything from traditional quesadillas, to "bowls", to salmon, to tuna at the table. I recommend one of their bowls: the one I had with beans, vegetables, and fresh avocado on top was very tasty.

Cinco is our go-to for quick slightly upscale Mexican. The Texas margaritas are just $5 on Friday nights. This time we tried one of their new burrito bowls (steak and bleu cheese) and it was quite tasty. Husband got shrimp fajitas, with plenty of contents for the number of totillas. Good vaue, quick and tasty.

Cinco has great ambience to eat with family or a simple date. I was here a week ago and had to bring my family back as they love Mexican food and this was something different. I will be hanging out here more. Need to check out your rooftop bar soon.

Fresh Guac is excellent! The wait staff tries hard to make the experience enjoyable. We like the grilled chicken entries with signature sauces...

We have been going to Cinco for many years and the brunch this Mother's Day was disappointing. The price has continuted to rise, but the quality of the food has not. We arrived about 1:15 and noticed that several of the entrees were very low or not refilled. We still enjoy going to Cinco to dine, but would not spend almost $22 each for brunch that's not at the level of the food they serve at dinner. Since Ava and Rob have departed, the service and food are not the same.

This restaurant has great food and drinks. It definitely has a vibrant environment and not ideal for quiet conversation.

Great service and delicious food! We came to Cinco for a work team lunch and had a great time. I had originally made the reservation for 8 people and our friendly hostess happily accomodated my request to add more chairs. Our server, Kate/Kathryn:) was awesome as well! Would highly recommend for groups or anyone looking for a fun lunch or dinner spot!

I also Love the $2.50 house wine special on Wednesdays!! Will be back soon:)

We ate on the rooftop patio. It was crowded when we arrived and was a bit noisy as you would expect. Service was slow and it was a bit difficult to flag down a server. However, when we talked to a server they were nice. The patio wait staff just seemed to be a bit disorganized. As busy as they are, they need to run the tables on the patio as they do in the main dining server is assigned to a certain set of tables with organized repeated visits to the tables to accommodate patrons and there are enough servers to cover all of the tables. The food was good....definitely a step up from "hole in the wall" Mexican and the portions were fair for the prices. Would love to see a combination platter where you could pick 3 or 4 items from their large selection of tacos, enchiladas, burritos, etc. Overall a positive dining experience, they just need to do a little better on the service.

We had reservations for 4 and we are seated upon arrival. Pleasant hostesses- friendly and professional. Waitresses were attentive; food was perfectly prepared and served warm. Great first time dining experience!
