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.

There seemed to an adequate number of servers however, ours was not that great. Waited about 15 minutes for our drinks which were excellent. Our meals were excellent however one member in our party had ordered cole slaw with her tacos, asked for it several times and it finally arrived once we were completed. The food was really great. Pretty noisy so difficult to sit at a table of four with three of us and have a conversation. We would definitely go again however in spite of it. Food outweighed the substandard service.

Our food was served cold to hot, and it should have been all hot. Nachos was a plate of chips with topping only in the middle so you quickly just had a plate of chips. The black beans didn't taste cooked, but then my whole plate was cold. Also, dissappointed because I selected a restaurant indicating the staff wears mask. Only one masked staff person.

We had to leave. Went with my colleagues did not receive menus or waters or any service for 45 minutes despite trying to get servers attention. One of us finally went to find someone and bring them to our table he said he would come back with water and chips after 20 minutes he never returned even though we saw him standing in a corner chatting. Worse experience at an eatery we finally got up and left after over an hour of sitting there and not getting any service. I will never go back and I will be sure to tell everyone to avoid this restaurant location.

My colleagues and I dined here late on a Monday night. I can be a bit picky about my Mexican food, but it was really good! I loved the variety of taco options (Korean BBQ, Buffalo, etc.), and the chips were fresh. The waiter was attentive and polite without being pushy. I would dine here again.

We waited forever for our waitress Monique who was distracted the entire time. We waited 30 minutes for water and had to ask someone to get her just to place our order. I ordered 4 tacos to go and only got 3. The tacos were made wrong and it was just a terrible experience.

I had a lunch date with my husband while visiting Atlanta for a conference. Weather was beautiful, so we sat on the patio in the back. Our server had a great sense of humor and took care of us well. The house spice on the chips was amazing, and our salads were delicious. We would definitely come back.

Made a reservation but still took 30 mins to be seated. Food/tacos are Ok. Server and bar were overwhelmed - not enough servers. Once seated, server really tried to make things better but only so much she could do. Will try again once I know staffing is adequate.

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.

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.

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.
