Tex-Mex
In 2005 four longtime Florida State graduates 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 TexMex 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 and especially back to Tallahassee.

Tin Lizzy's gets a 5 star rating due to the service. We came in last week when FSU was back in session and the place was packed. We ordered some appetizers and ordered food about 10 minutes later. The server was very attentive and was checking on us frequently and refilling waters. He realized the food was taking a long time so brought us extra chips, guac and salsa without us asking. The food took about 45 minutes and before it arrived the manager, John, came over to apologize and tell us the entire meal was comp'd. WOW. We hadn't complained or even questioned the delay because we knew they were busy and I am sure not had a crowd like this in a long time. I told him he didn't need to do that but he felt bad for our wait. He noted many of the kitchen staff were new and adjusting to the volume of orders. For them to offer to comp the meal for 6 people goes above and beyond my expectations. The food was good and we will certainly go back. Service can make all the difference!

Great food and service! LOVE the diversity of the menu. They also are doing a good job with keeping tables spaced for social distancing. All servers were wearing masks. We will be back!

Food is very good. Tacos and homemade tortilla chips are fresh and tasty. We went on a Sunday night and service was poor. It was very busy. We were seated because we had reservations. People waiting outside. The busyness made service drop. Tables clean but seats not. Out of certain food items. Bathrooms messy. 30 minutes to get tacos. So it made for a subpar experience. Took away from the good good. Prices are also good.

We went during covid. Our waiter was awesome. The margarita was ok. They didn’t have any fish (except shrimp) or guacamole. We al ordered the skillets. I got one with grilled veggies and shrimp. The shrimp were way overcooked. My husband and son got another skillet they were ok. We also got the chips, salsa and queso. The salsa wasn’t great. The queso was fine

Vegan taco was wrong and it took so long to get the replacement that we had to get it to go

Beer was served in a broken glass, glad we caught it before it hurt someone

Hit the place with a party of 16 after an FSU basketball win. Excellent service (thanks Saul!) food was outstanding, well laid out facility. College crowd here so noise may be an issue for some...

Service was slow as our server didn't have much to do and would sit in a booth with someone she knew chatting and on their phones. Food was good, as usual, and there was hardly anyone in the restaurant so noise level was low.

It was Friday night prior to a home FSU Football game with a huge street party in "CollageTown" the FSU party street. They sat us ahead of our reservation ahead of a long line of people trying to get in.
Had a wonderful time and excellent dinner.

Never going back. My daughter and I ordered the same 2 tacos. All 4 came out with half the ingredients missing from each of them. My margarita tasted like a dirty bar rag. Nachos had barely any toppings. Mostly dry chips. Horrible. Was not busy when we arrived either. Actually feel sick today from what I did eat. Sorry to write such a poor review but I was shocked at what was served to us.

We ate here two days in a row when visiting our son at FSU. It’s in a great location right next to campus and the food was so good! We’ll definitely go back next time we go for a visit!

Food was really good a little different from your regular Mexican restaurant. Service was fast even though the restaurant was very busy. It was very noisy, hardly able to hear the person sitting in front of you.

Tin Lizzy's offers a great atmosphere for a fun dinner out with friends and family. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating options with an overall relaxed feel. The service was quick, and everyone on the wait staff was friendly. The food is a spin off of Tex-Mex with its own unique flair. I would highly recommend this place and plan to go there again.

Made reservations well in advance for 15 people to sit out side, even confirmed my opentable reservation a few days before the date. When we arrived the outside was reserved for a private party - received no communication for Tin Lizzys about the difference in seating. We left and was perfectly accommodated by Coosh’s across the street. An update would of been greatly appreciated since we rented a limo for my daughter’s birthday to go there, but we made the best of it with all the other awesome choices at College Town.

Great little find in the heart of College Town! Awesome selection of unique tacos. Definitely try the bacon cheeseburger one! Service was great. We have been here a few times and whether for a social outing, drinks on the patio, or a casual dinner it is always a home-run!
