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.

We had a 6:30 reservation, we were on time & were told they hadn’t been taking reservations, despite my emailed confirmation. The hostess was exceptionally rude & told me my confirmed reservation wasn’t his problem & he didn’t have a seat for us. AVOID THIS PLACE!!!

The wait person (female) was very accommodating and provided a little extra when requested.

It wasn't very busy, but the waitress was spread thin and we had to wait a while for drinks and then refills. When you're dropping $160 for a party of 4, you expect exceptional service. You also don't expect the waitress to slap the bill down without asking how it should be split or any other questions. I have been here before and usually see waitresses all over, however, we only saw maybe 2 waitresses in the whole place and it was a Sunday evening at 6 PM.

Booked this reservation using a Dining Reward and restaurant manager refused to accept the voucher. I had previously used another Dining Reward at this restaurant. Extremely disappointed that the information listed on the Open Table website was false.

Birthday dinner for my wife. Seated immediately. Waitress was outstanding. Food was amazing. You pay for chips and salsa, guacamole and queso dip, however it was amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant. We will visit again.

This place is a great for grabbing a drink or a casual meal. The food was good, service was mediocre, and ambiance is very energetic. It is generally very loud inside on the weekends. We enjoy sitting on the patio when the weather is nice!

Tin Lizzy's is a fun place to eat, with good food at reasonable prices. The noise can be a problem, but servers are nice and helpful. You may want to rely on MARTA - the #5 route goes right past this place - because parking is a bit scanty. If you're looking for a fun and energetic place to meet with some friends, and can stand a little noise, drop in.

I’ve been going to Tin Lizzy’s for a long time and almost always order the skillet with flour tortillas on the side.
Yesterday the waitress decided to charge me extra for the tortillas - which NEVER happened before. When I asked her if that’s a new thing they were doing she just said ‘no, it’s been like this forever’. Even though it wasn’t a big deal, I felt lied to because I know it’s not true, I was at the same location few days earlier and wasn’t charged extra - so I know it’s not a location thing either!
On top of that she stop passing by our table to get us water or see if we needed anything else halfway through dinner.
I’d still go to Tin Lizzy’s but definitely NOT this location!

We have visited the Perimeter location several times and really enjoy the Tin Lizzy's menu. We decided to try the Buckhead location because it is closer to our home. We will NEVER go back there. The place was not busy AT ALL. We ordered chips and a combo guacamole, salsa, queso appetizer. There were 3 of us and we ran out of chips quickly. Our server never did refill our chips so a large portion of our appetizer went uneaten. We ordered our entrees and they were brought promptly and were delicious .... but our server (Daniele) never did come check on us. I drank my water and my husband's water as well. We were totally forgotten the entire time we were there. Seriously, there were only 3 other people in the area where we were and a few people outside. We sat for awhile after finishing then finally flagged someone down to get our server to return to give us our check. Beers, water, chips never did get refreshed. While we were waiting for our check someone, maybe he was the manager, came by and just said, "Good times!" Didn't ask how things were or give us the opportunity to respond. Perhaps he should have had a better command of what was going on. No wonder it was not very crowded. Our meal was very good but the service was so bad we will drive a little further to go to another location.

I reserved a table for 10 for a business dinner. I was NOT told it was outside in the sun in 90 degree weather but we had no choice since everyone was there. I had to ask 4 times for napkins. I finally got a beer and asked for a glass or mug and after the 3rd request she brought one. I have been to Tin Lizzy's Perimeter and have had great experiences so this was very disappointing since our company just moved down the street. Hopefully when a reservation is made and it is outdoors you notify the party in advance.
thanks.

We came for lunch. Our server obviously had a problem waiting on us. She was rude, non-attentive, and not at all helpful. We weren’t offered to-go drinks, but we noticed other girls were. The buffalo chicken nachos are a HUGE waste of money. I saw THREE minuscule bites of chicken in the whole order. I was excited about this because I had heard great things about it, but honestly, I’ve had better service & food at Taco Bell.

We had a great time! Our server, Ramsey, was on her A game and made great recommendations and never left us thirsty. The Korean bbq and lobster tacos were both delicious. You can’t beat the Texas margaritas either.

Had a great time and loved the ease of making reservations for a birthday celebration for a co-worker. Our server Simone was very nice and made sure we were taken care of - we were a tad involved as a group but she made sure that drinks were filled and that the food taken care of. Will recommend this location every time.
