About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

The crew was very accommodating to our group. The wait staff was amazing. Each dish that was ordered was very delicious and matched the description from the menu perfectly. You will be on our list of places to return.

We were on time for our reservation, it took about 10-15 minutes before we were acknowledged at the hostess stand, then we had to wait as no tables were available. After being seated it was another 15 minutes before our drink order was taken. After another 15-20 minutes of not seeing our server much less getting a drink of water we left. Horrible - Way under staffed obviously. Wont try again.

I was very disappointed in the food. We ordered three different kinds of tacos, beans, rice, and chips with queso. The food was bland and VERY salty. I won't go back.

The food was not up to its normal high standard. The executive taco meat tasted funny and I ended up with an upset stomach

The chips were great. But I have never been to a Mexican style restaurant that charged for chips and salsa. The food was only ok.

A very poor overall dining experience. The tacos were mini in size, the chicken was very bland and the salad was nothing special. Unquestionably, will not return to Tin Lizzy’s. A real disappointment.

Totally unrelated to the food..... but the music playing at Tin Lizzy's seems to be chosen by whoever brought their iPod to work that day. The last several times I've been, they've been playing heavy metal music, which doesn't fit the tex-mex vibe at all. It's almost distracting.

We've always enjoyed the food. Many different tacos to choose from, just wish you didn't have to choose 3. My friend and I decided to go with the skillets this time. They were pretty tasty. I had grilled chicken, she had the steak. Husband and friend's husband had the 3 taco plate. It comes with no sides. They're an extra cost. Great drink menu with many choices of margaritas. Their salads are pretty good too, but large.

Went for date night. Food was ok but felt rushed even though it wasn’t that busy. Really loud and they didn’t log my reservation through open table so I didn’t even get my point.

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Tin Lizzy’s. We used Open Table for reservations on a Friday night and there was no wait. The food came quickly and was prepared as ordered. The service was excellent. We will be dining here often as we come to town to visit our daughter.

We had a large party, but we had 2 brand new servers. They were not prompt with getting our orders or getting our drinks out. One of the servers even got into an argument with one of my friends when he had not gotten his beer after 20 minutes. They had no idea who ordered what...calling out orders. I don't even think we were charged for everything. They didn't a check to one of my friends when he asked several times. Needless to say, we won't be back.

Ordered 3 tacos. The low country boil and the fish taco were good. The southern comfort
taco was so hot (spicy) I could not eat it. I've had that same taco before and it was okay,
but this time it was TERRIBLE! The heat appeared to be in the bbq sauce. I gave it to my
wife, who likes hot food more than I do, and she complained that it was too hot, also.

We've been there before and enjoyed it; however, we sat at a table and waited for over 20 minutes without even being greeted. We tried unsuccessfully to get a waiter's attention and finally left. No one ever came to our table after we were seated. We ended up leaving and going to another restaurant nearby.

Obnoxious kid in booth beside us. Asked waitress to dal with; she handed off to manager. He flaked out but did pay for our app and drinks. Thankfully the mom and kid weren’t there too long. Why do you take a 2-3 year old to a Mex Tex bar type atmosphere? Smh

My friend and I both enjoyed the Trifecta - three taco - meal. Believe the server when she says the sauce is hot on the Korean BBQ and other options. Overall our meal was enjoyable.
