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.

Everyone was pleased with the service and the food. It was great fun, we can there for a celebration for one of our employees. He is in the Army Reserves and is going away to South Korea, he had no idea we were going to surprise him and he likes Tin Lizzy's so this was a good way to send him off.

Food was okay but our server was incredibly slow and uncaring about anything. We got no refills the entire hour we were there. My food was incorrect and I never got a salad that I ordered. I do not recommend eating here unless the staff gets retrained or replaced.

Limited menu - no fajitas or burritos. Mostly tacos.

Tin Lizzies is a staple in Atlanta, and the midtown location like the other locations, has its own character. Amazing service, but the TVs were really loud in the area in the back near the restrooms. Having been there before, the high stool seating along with the outdoor seating is best for a quieter experience.

Brought my family here for dinner to celebrate my birthday. I was so embarrassed by the service and quality that I felt like I had to apologize multiple times. Embarrassing! I had a reservation- but was rudely told that my reservation wasn't in the system (I was even told they're system had no reservations at all which makes me think their machine is just broken) and we were told to hang out in the bar area (which had only dirty food covered tables to sit at). Sat there for 20 minutes, we saw other parties come in and get immediately sat so we went up to the host stand to ask about our table- and the host had completely forgotten us. Waited another 15 minutes in the dirty bar again and were finally sat. Then we were told my a server that the restaurant had run out of chips and several of their menu items were not available. We ordered our food anyways since we had already sunk 30 min in this place and then waited almost an hour for our food to come out. Orders were wrong and had to be remade (more waiting). They did comp us for one of the meals. But it was the worst service and worst food I've ever had at this restaurant. Finally we were leaving and I asked for parking validation. Bar tender yelled across the room that they don't validate parking (which I know they do). Had to ask for a manager and once the manager go there he immediately reached into the stand and handed me the validation. Never coming back here again. What a mortifying experience for my birthday.

Awful experience. We had a reservation and it wasn’t ready. Took an hour to get 1 drink and 30 minutes for some salsa. Never going back

My family and I get together at least one weekend per month. I’m doing so, we like to try different venues. Tin Lizzy is one I can now add to my favorite places to go since moving to Atlanta.

I've given numerous chances after being let down several times and it was disappointing again. After waiting 10 minutes for a server I had to get up and go tell the hostess no one had come to my table. After that food took forever to come out and I only have 1 hour for lunch. My queso was cold and chips were very stale. My salad was fine, but just a salad. My colleague had to leave for a call and I waited to pay the bill which was the only thing that was fast.

This is always a good midtown option. The drinks are good and getting a table is usually pretty easy but I try to reserve just in case.

Highly recommend Tin Lizzy's for a great lunch fare for any kind of gathering. Convenient location in Midtown makes it great for a reasonable lunchtime getaway from the mundane office brownbag and doesn't disappoint on flavor. Depending on the outside temp, sit outside on the covered porch, as we did. The street tacos are always my pick, and the guacamole is the best!

This location needs a major refresh!! It was “ soggy”, the food was cold and not tasty. The server got our orders wrong. I will never return.

The air did not work. They placed fans at the end of our table. The table was wobbly and the waitress came and put napkins under instead of moving us.

We purchased the street tacos. The food was dry and old. Wasn't worth the price at all. The taco shells were awful. They need to improve on the cleanliness as well. I will never come back.

We asked for a table on the patio. The music was turned up so loud that when I asked the hostess if it could be turned down she responded "huh?" because she could not understand me even though I asked the question with a loud voice. It was impossible to have a conversion on the patio and that level of noise will cause hearing damage when exposed to for prolonged periods. I know I probably sound like a senior citizen but I am 31 years old. The manager claimed to have turned the music down twice but I have the SoundPrint app and the noise level averaged 86 dB both before and after the music was "turned down". The server asked if we wanted to move inside where it was quieter and I responded that we would prefer to sit on the patio with the music lower. The manager blamed the loudness on the fact that the speaker was pointed at out table but 86dB is so far outside of what is safe and comfortable that the orientation of the speaker was not the root problem. They also used the excuse that it was "Cinco de Mayo weekend" - last I checked, Cinco de Mayo is a single day and trying to pull in the day before (5/4) is just a clear over reach of an already americanized bastardization of Cinco de Mayo. We ended up moving inside so that we could talk over our dinner (where the noise averaged 81dB). The server was friendly and the food was great but the staff really did not respect or try to resolve how harmful the music level was on the patio. I know that many restaurants think loudness correlates to fun but this is not the case when the noise is at levels that will cause hearing loss with prolonged exposure.

The Midtown Tin Lizzy's is much less 'franchise' looking inside than the other Atlanta area outlets. Gives it a nicer ambiance.

This is a pretty disgusting (dirty, smelly) bar. Our waiter ignored us for the most part. We ordered chips and salsa and tater tots as appetizers. They were good but... Didn’t ask if my husband wanted a drink. Took forever and never even took our dinner order. Got the check and left. Will not be going back. Other locations are much much better.

By far one of my favorite places to eat in Atlanta. The staff was amazing. The food was delicious. It was so good I went back the next day with another friend. This food is authentic. Would recommend the queso and Tins tacos. Their food and drinks are reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

Accommodated a 11 guest with a reservation for 8. Service was great, but drink & food orders were slow to be served. Great fish taco, but could have used more fish. Would return especially for a pre-game to a concert.
