    Nuevo Laredo Cantina (Where to Eat Recommendation)
    One of the great mysteries of life in Atlanta is how so many people seem to find their way six nights a week to the desolate stretch of Chattahoochee that is home to NUEVO LAREDO.

    One of the great mysteries of life in Atlanta is how so many people seem to find their way six nights a week to the desolate stretch of Chattahoochee that is home to NUEVO LAREDO. Is this place ever not busy? Folks keep coming back for the easy-going, quickly served food that pleases every palate. Make your way through the crowd and order a Texas-style margarita to make the wait whiz by. Hone in on the vegetarian chili rellenos, shrimp fajitas and tamales made in-house. Cebollitas (grilled scallions) and smooth guacamole make great starters. Good luck parking when the joint is really hopping.

    Across from an all but clandestine Pepsi bottling plant, the throngs nevertheless find middle-of-nowhere, south-of-the-border NUEVO LAREDO CANTINA and keep it hoppin' nightly. The chile relleno (both meat-filled and vegetarian), shrimp fajitas, and brisket barbacoa are standouts. Isn't it a welcome change of pace to eat Border food that isn't from a friggin' chain? Come early or late - waits can be tedious. In-towners are eagerly awaiting the opening of a second location in Inman Park. "1495 Chattahoochee Ave. 404-352-9009. www.nuevolaredocantina.com." less...

    1495 Chattahoochee Ave. 404-352-9009 http://www.nuevolaredocantina.com This restaurant is an obvious labor of love for its owner. Located in a cottage on the outer edge of a warehouse district near Buckhead, it is pure lovable kitsch, with a menu of Tex-Mex and Mexican cuisine that packs the crowds in night after night. The chicken mole is our favorite, but you can't go wrong with anything you choose. less...
