Welcome to Tin Lizzy’s Taco Americana, the refreshed Midtown location of Atlanta’s beloved Tin Lizzy’s Cantina. Inspired by the relaxed, breezy west coast city of Palm Springs—the desert oasis known for its mid-century modern architecture and California-cool lifestyle—you’ll be transported with thoughtful design elements. Warm white oak paneling, vibrantly colored textiles and beach-chic original artwork set the scene. We welcome you to pull up a chair in the airy dining room, at the welcoming bar or on the easygoing patio, and explore the menu.

The tacos were not very good, particularly the Mahi tacos. Our waiter was nice, but the overall service was poor. We waited at the host stand with no acknowledgement, it was really quite odd. Lots of servers and employees just looking at us and looking away. At least they could have told the host we were there? If the food would have been good it would have been fine, but would not recommend.

Our server was very nice. It seemed there were ample wait staff, however it took an hour to receive our food after we ordered it. They were very apologetic about the wait and offered us a complimentary desert. I suppose this is the new normal with staffing shortages.

Our waitress was very attentive. My daughter drank 5 glasses of water and she was there every time to fill it up. I have been to other Tin Lizzy locations and have always been pleased. This new visit to the midtown location was no diffferent.

Great outdoor eating area! Took three grandchildren (4, 10, 11) and the staff treated them just as they would any other patron. The food was delicious, too. We will be back!

The prices here are very fair especially given the quality of the food!! The service was also outstanding! The host was lovely and sat us immediately. Our waiter Coby had good menu knowledge, didn’t rush us, and was super kind. He gave great recommendations and our favorite ended up being the Korean BBQ taco! We will be back, thank you!!!

Last time we ate here was 2+ months ago. Used to go here very regularly because we live across the street. Below is abridged version of private review I left at that time. They never responded.


You must do better. You have incredible space, especially the patio. You have a fantastic location. We live across the street and come every two weeks or so, and bring others with us. We’ve seen a steady decline since you opened in this new location, and today topped it off.

What kind of Mexican place doesn’t know how to make a margarita without some overly sugary premix? I know this about the place and so I finally worked up the courage and asked our server to please make a real margarita. Nothing fancy, just lime juice and tequila and triple sec, but above all no premade mix. She literally responded, with no irony, “but that’s what a margarita is” (meaning using margarita mix). The bartender sent me lime juice and tequila. No triple sec or similar. What kind of Mexican place has servers and a bartender that don’t know what a margarita is?

The food was typical, not bad, but the skillets used to be so much better and tastier when you first opened in this new location.

Server was just horrible. She forgot the chips and salsa after we ordered. Never came, and she didn’t come back until she brought the entrees, so we asked her to cancel it. We also ordered the fried jalapeños as an appetizer. Never came. Server then kept saying “I took them off the bill for you” like she was comping them for us. But they just never came so she wasn’t doing us a favor. One person in our party drinks coffee. Server never brought him a second cup, never asked if he wanted one. I didn’t order my typical second margarita bc the first was so bad. Server was inattentive and so we could not remedy the mixups. She couldn’t even remember to bring us a box to take food home when we asked her for that. She isn’t new, we have seen her there on multiple occasions for months.

Tin Lizzys was pretty good. We were able to sit out on the patio and enjoy tacos for taco Tuesday. We didn’t have to wait at all to be seated and they weren’t that crowded, which was great. The food was good but the margaritas could have been stronger.

Our server, Cat, was fun, attentive, and welcoming from the time that I arrived. She made sure that we had everything that we needed and even offered suggestions to some friends who had never been there before. It was my first time at the new Midtown location and the energy was perfect! I love that there is more space in the new location and my Philly steak & cheese taco was delicious as always!

There wasn’t a table available for us when we got there, even with a reservation. The taco Tuesday specials felt limited and the beer specials touted are really the everyday prices.

Made a reservation for 7:00pm. Arrived at 6:55 and was told 5 minutes to a table. Waited at the bar for over 30 minutes before being sat. Had to hunt down the manager to get any updates on the table. After being sat, waited another 10 minutes with no service. Had to hunt down the manager again to get a food and drink order taken. Didn’t meet our server until over 15 minutes in. Host stopped by the table and promised a round of drinks on the house which still ended up on the Bill. Food was decent but lack of communication in service was incredibly off putting. Most likely won’t return.

Was in Atlanta for the weekend and had lunch at Tin Lizzy’s. Waited 15 minutes for drinks, another 15 minutes to order a bar drink/ chips and salsa. The food was okay. Seemed like they were short staffed, so I tried to be understanding. Overall, just ok, not a great experience and probably won’t be back.
