My sister & brother-in-law took us here. The food was beyond amazing!!!
Nuevo Laredo Cantina, Restaurant
1495 Chattahoochee Ave NW
Atlanta, GA 30318
The place was busy, but we didn’t wait long. The hostess walked us through the restaurant, down some stairs, and into a basement.
It felt like we were in somebody’s basement. But, I didn’t care. I was beyond excited.
If you’ve been reading awhile, you may know about my love for them & mexican food.
Plus, I knew we were in for a treat, because my sis suggested the place (she knows good food)! And also because, the basement was loud. People were seated at almost every table, happily chatting away & eating.
Chips & salsa. I could cry.
The tortillas were fried fresh. Brought to our table warm, with glints of gleaming oil. Mmm!
And the salsa…nice & tomato-y, with hints of fresh cilantro. Then comes the kick of peppers! But not too spicy. Very subtle.
Great…now I want some.
I ordered the steak tacos.
The steak was tender, well-cooked, and very flavorful. The salsa that came with it, complemented the meat & extended the flavor. Simple cilantro & onion mix topping. The flour tortilla was unexpectedly good! Very soft, fresh, with a bit of chewiness. You know how some flour shells taste like straight flour? Not these! I usually order soft shell corn tortillas, but I must’ve forgot.
I’m glad I forgot. I think this was the best steak taco I’ve ever eaten!
The refried frijoles were decent. Unfortunately, I couldn’t touch the rice. Peas.
Husband had the chicken tamales. My brother-in-law ordered the lobster tacos. And my sister-in-law had, I think it was either the chicken or steak burrito. Everyone really enjoyed their food.
If you live in the Atlanta area, you must stop by this restaurant.
If I did, I would. Often.
