1) Taqueria La Oaxaquena

Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “No place serves the mystery that is masa as well as this real-deal joint in Jonesboro. This is soul food, Mexican-style, and specializing in the wonders of Oaxaca.” See her complete round-up for more on each of these Mexican marvels.

Definitely El Jinete in Snellville on Highway 124. My family has been going there for years. The wait staff is excellent — we have one waiter who greets us when we walk in. The food is consisently good and the margaritas are excellent.

There is only one place to go for the hands-down BEST gourmet Mexican – “The Bridge” in Alpharetta. It’s OMG good!!! The sauces and gravies are like nothing you’ve ever tasted!! Simply the best. I crave it!

Nuevo Laredo must pay for every post with its name. B/c U take the workers from the back and turn them into greeters and waiters does not make it a “authentic” Mexican restaurant. Overpriced menu for fast food quality is the only thing NL can boost. Mr. Chance Evans you need to try La Oaxaquena (605 Mt. Zion Rd. Jonesboro 30236). Can we say in-house handmade tortillas; VARITY of fresh salsas made daily, and guess what Mexicans actually eat there.

I’m not crazy about tex-mex food (which is what the ‘mexican’ food in the US really is) but I will go to No Más – great ambiance, great food.

If you don’t have tacos al pastor, you don’t have an authentic Mexican restaurant.

Nuevo Laredo. We took a friend from Mexico who had been away from home for a while and she was so happy with all the great authentic food that she was about to cry! Nuevo Laredo is our favorite!

The Bridge is authentic gourmet mexican. Everything we have ever eaten has been to die for. Everything is made fresh including the taco salad shell. Best I’ve ever had.

The Bridge Gourmet in Roswell, GA is the best Mexican food I have eaten. The food is cooked to order, so your food is fresh and hot. The Texas margarita’s are the best also. Go for a visit and I think you will keep returning. The staff is the greatest as well.

So many Mexican restaurants, it’s difficult to stand out. One restaurant that does is The Bridge in Roswell. Very tasty selections (chicken tamales are awesome!) and everything is made from very fresh ingredients. If you’re looking for fresh, gourmet Mexican, The Bridge is the best around!

The Bridge Mexican Restaurant in Roswell is the best I’ve found in Atlanta. Family owned and operated — VERY fresh ingredients – near toxic margaritas — everything you want and more.

Adobo Taqueria and Tequila Bar in Alpharetta is by far the best OTP Mexican restaurant around! I’ve eaten at Nuevo Laredo many times, but Adobo beats NL hands down! Adobo’s food is consistently fresh, perfectly cooked, expertly seasoned and reasonably priced. The margaritas are delicious. What more could you want from a Mexican restaurant? Oh, and their chips and salsa are perfect… as is their flan… and their tapas… and lunch specials… and dinner specials… and wait staff… and atmosphere (kid friendly).

Chepe’s Mexican grill for sure Wife and I have been there 4 times in the past 6 weeks. Really great authentic Mexican food. Everything is fresh. My wife’s “test” dish at Mexican restaurants has been the Chiles Rellenos . These passed her test with flying colors. Wait staff is very friendly. Prices are very reasonable with excellent value. The Mexican shrimp soup came loaded with shrimp. We will be back… again and again.
