Tin Lizzy's - Downtown

Tex-Mex
In 2005 four longtime college friends opened Tin Lizzy’s in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood, giving their guests a unique taqueria with service rooted in genuine hospitality. Tin Lizzy’s quickly became a popular place to work and to meet friends for refreshing margaritas and delicious FlexMex cuisine. Soon after, other neighborhoods wanted their own Tin Lizzy’s. We are excited to bring our passion for hospitality and “friends serving friends” mission to new neighborhoods.

I couldn’t finish the review without rating everything. We never got to eat- we had reservations at 1- we were seated right away. The server came up and said to give her 30 seconds and she would be right back while we reviewed the menu. We waited 25 minutes before getting up and leaving because she never returned. She said her name was princess mimi- dragon con was going on.

I was w my kids but they seated us in the bar which was not ideal. Service snd good were great, though. I love how you can buy individual tacos. We got chips w queso dip, salsa and guacamole then we each had one taco w no leftovers.

We made a reservation days in advance so that after my daughter's volleyball tournament we would have a guaranteed place to eat with hungry athletes. They did not honor our reservation and the hostess was extremely rude, not only to us but to other guests trying to check in with their own reservations. Needless to say, we left.

Three of our eight food orders were wrong and needed to be returned. We did not have any special orders, just not what we had ordered. They brought out the correct orders within 5 minutes. The food itself, once it was correct, was average, good but nothing special.

They were swamped and our server was amazing. It took a little longer for him to get to us right away, but we weren’t in a rush. He had a lot of tables and was cool, calm, and collect plus greeted us with a smile every time he came to our table. Food was delicious and over satisfied with the Trio Chip basket. A lot of guac, cheese and salsa for the price.

Way too loud, servers cranked the volume on the tv and didn’t respond when we asked them to turn it down. A panhandler wandered in off the street and approached us during our meal. WILL NOT RETURN TO THIS SPOT

I visited Tin Lizzy’s the last time I was in town for DragonCon and knew I wanted to go back. The food and margaritas were excellent then & were just as good during this visit. The servers busted their butts to keep up with the massive crowds and while service was slow, that was to be expected from the sheer volume of people. Despite the craziness, our server was sweet and as efficient as anyone could be in that scenario. Great job, and I will be back next time I’m in Atlanta!

Food was ok, the waiter wasn’t very knowledgeable of the menu and with this being my first time at Tin Lizzy’s I didn't know what to choose, luckily i chose something decent. Not to mention, the cook cooked everything that i didn't want in my skillet, in my skillet, whole order was messed up! I wouldn’t recommend this location at all!!

Server was very nice and accommodating, but was a little “skittish” when interacting with us. We had some special requests that were accurately and happily honored. No issues there. The food that came out was just not good. It wasn’t hot. It didn’t taste fresh. Every bite I took of the steak in my skillet had so much grissle I was pulling it out of my mouth. The queso was runny and flavorless. Price was ok. Fried pickles were ok. Nothing that happened that night would make me want to go back. This location is in downtown Atlanta where I’ve been working extensively since May, and there are always sketchy people hanging outside the entrance to this place. There are lots of places to eat downtown. This one is no longer on my list.

It took forever for us to get seated even though there were tables in front of us that were empty. Took forever for the waitress to come over and even get our drinks. Took 45 minutes to get the food. And it took ever to get the check to come back to us so we can pay it and leave. We were in from out of town and we were suggested to this restaurant and I would never suggest it to anybody else

This downtown location thrives on convention attendees, business travelers & tourists. Trust that you will receive lackluster service. It’s never improved. The food is great, but don’t expect a server to be attentive, refill your beverage or offer exemplary service. Just. Not. Going. To. Happen.

The plates that were brought to us were very dirty and sticky. It took awhile to get new plates and it hurt the experience at the beginning. The manager and server apologized and got the issue fixed and the rest of the night was great. Good food!

Apparently you still have to wait 45 mins - 1 hour even with a reservation. Terrible way of running a business. I would recommend going to Truva instead since they honor your reservation time.

Tasty Tex Mex, great service with knowledgeable recommendations on menu items, and reasonable prices. A quick walk from the downtown hotels. Our group enjoyed the lobster and mahi mahi tacos. Good fresh ingredients and the food arrived hot and quickly.

Our visit to Tin Lizzy's was OK. It was very noisy & took a while to get served our drinks. They were out of lime & lemons in a Tex-Mex restaurant - can you believe it? The nachos with extra queso were great, though. Overall, it was fine.
