We were told upon arriving that they don't take open table reservations, but could seat us. I showed them my reservation on my phone and they said they stopped two weeks ago. Anyway, the hostess seated us at a table next to a large, very loud group. That, combined with the loud music, was awful. We asked to be moved to a table outside. That was ok and the service was adequate. Food ok. Don't accept Discover cards, so my friend had to use his cc. when he checked his account 2 days later, he found they had run his card twice. Got it resolved, but it was annoying. Will definitely not return.

This restaurant was great. The service was beyond amazing and so was the food. I had the chicken quesadilla and my date had the shrimp tacos. We both had a drink as well, which was great. All of their drinks are made with fresh fruit... and they were strong. We were very pleased and we plan on going back soon.

We went to Escorpion after the Atlanta United game. It was a great atmosphere and very festive. The margaritas were great. Try the Escorpion. And the food was great too. We were glad we had made a reservation on Open Table since the wait for walk-ins was 30 minutes at 9:30pm.

We stopped in prior to an Atlanta United game. The service was great but the food was just okay. The Margarita was great!

The food was good. But for the price, ehhh. What really made me upset is that when I checked my bank account a few days later, the waiter added an extra $10 tip to my bill!! What is that?! There was not a gratuity charge or anything because it was only 2 of us. I don't like shady service. Will not return.

Such a great experience. Perfect location. Attentive staff. Great food. It is our theater 'go to' whenever we have date night at the Fox or ASO. We took our daughter, 19y this time and she LOVED it.

Very good service. Walking distance to the FOX THEATER. Fabulous margaritas. Food was pretty good. My enchiladas were not hot (temperature) enough.

Upscale Mexican food. We have not had a bad meal we have taken over a dozen friends here and co-workers and they all loved it. Grilled shrimp tacos and grilled veggies are a personal fav. If you like tequila you will love this place an impressive and extensive list of tequila and mescal.

Best Mexican food I have had in my travels! Seasonings were tasty and everything with our fajitas and tacos was fresh.

This was disappointing. Bad service and mediocre food. Convenient to The Fox is all they have going for them. Won't go back.
