Fun
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.

Food was fantastic, service was even better. Definitely a must go in downtown Atlanta! We went on Tuesday so that worked out great, since it was Taco Tuesdays. Our waiter was Shambrae at first, then waitress Shaquala finished our order, they were both excellent and very sweet!

Chips and salsa, guacamole and quezon and a bowl of chicken tortilla soup made for a nice lunch. Nothing great nothing terrible.

We waited forever for our waitress Monique who was distracted the entire time. We waited 30 minutes for water and had to ask someone to get her just to place our order. I ordered 4 tacos to go and only got 3. The tacos were made wrong and it was just a terrible experience.

I had a lunch date with my husband while visiting Atlanta for a conference. Weather was beautiful, so we sat on the patio in the back. Our server had a great sense of humor and took care of us well. The house spice on the chips was amazing, and our salads were delicious. We would definitely come back.

Made a reservation but still took 30 mins to be seated. Food/tacos are Ok. Server and bar were overwhelmed - not enough servers. Once seated, server really tried to make things better but only so much she could do. Will try again once I know staffing is adequate.

I couldn’t finish the review without rating everything. We never got to eat- we had reservations at 1- we were seated right away. The server came up and said to give her 30 seconds and she would be right back while we reviewed the menu. We waited 25 minutes before getting up and leaving because she never returned. She said her name was princess mimi- dragon con was going on.

I was w my kids but they seated us in the bar which was not ideal. Service snd good were great, though. I love how you can buy individual tacos. We got chips w queso dip, salsa and guacamole then we each had one taco w no leftovers.

We made a reservation days in advance so that after my daughter's volleyball tournament we would have a guaranteed place to eat with hungry athletes. They did not honor our reservation and the hostess was extremely rude, not only to us but to other guests trying to check in with their own reservations. Needless to say, we left.

Three of our eight food orders were wrong and needed to be returned. We did not have any special orders, just not what we had ordered. They brought out the correct orders within 5 minutes. The food itself, once it was correct, was average, good but nothing special.

They were swamped and our server was amazing. It took a little longer for him to get to us right away, but we weren’t in a rush. He had a lot of tables and was cool, calm, and collect plus greeted us with a smile every time he came to our table. Food was delicious and over satisfied with the Trio Chip basket. A lot of guac, cheese and salsa for the price.

Way too loud, servers cranked the volume on the tv and didn’t respond when we asked them to turn it down. A panhandler wandered in off the street and approached us during our meal. WILL NOT RETURN TO THIS SPOT

I visited Tin Lizzy’s the last time I was in town for DragonCon and knew I wanted to go back. The food and margaritas were excellent then & were just as good during this visit. The servers busted their butts to keep up with the massive crowds and while service was slow, that was to be expected from the sheer volume of people. Despite the craziness, our server was sweet and as efficient as anyone could be in that scenario. Great job, and I will be back next time I’m in Atlanta!

Food was ok, the waiter wasn’t very knowledgeable of the menu and with this being my first time at Tin Lizzy’s I didn't know what to choose, luckily i chose something decent. Not to mention, the cook cooked everything that i didn't want in my skillet, in my skillet, whole order was messed up! I wouldn’t recommend this location at all!!

Server was very nice and accommodating, but was a little “skittish” when interacting with us. We had some special requests that were accurately and happily honored. No issues there. The food that came out was just not good. It wasn’t hot. It didn’t taste fresh. Every bite I took of the steak in my skillet had so much grissle I was pulling it out of my mouth. The queso was runny and flavorless. Price was ok. Fried pickles were ok. Nothing that happened that night would make me want to go back. This location is in downtown Atlanta where I’ve been working extensively since May, and there are always sketchy people hanging outside the entrance to this place. There are lots of places to eat downtown. This one is no longer on my list.

It took forever for us to get seated even though there were tables in front of us that were empty. Took forever for the waitress to come over and even get our drinks. Took 45 minutes to get the food. And it took ever to get the check to come back to us so we can pay it and leave. We were in from out of town and we were suggested to this restaurant and I would never suggest it to anybody else

This downtown location thrives on convention attendees, business travelers & tourists. Trust that you will receive lackluster service. It’s never improved. The food is great, but don’t expect a server to be attentive, refill your beverage or offer exemplary service. Just. Not. Going. To. Happen.
