This is our favorite Mexican restaurant and it's not even close. The prices are higher than your standard strip mall Mexican Restaurant, but the quality of food is much better. That being said, I think they need to move the establishment. The surrounding area is rough, the building is way too small for the crowds that it draws, the bar is almost non-existent, the seating is crowded, and you almost always have to park across the street and play Frogger to get across Chattahoochee Avenue. Kind of dangerous.

Would you like some puke with those chips? My wife, our 14 month old son and I ate here this past Saturday and unfortunately the food for our 14 month old son didn't sit well with him and he ended up puking it all up. I felt bad because obviously there was a mess and at the same time I wondering what is going on with my son because that is the first time I have seem him throw up like that. I ended up wiping up what I could on the high chair. I also tipped a lot more because I felt bad that my son ended up leaving a puddle of puke on the floor. The problem I have is, is who ever the bus boy was that came up when my wife and I are trying to take care of our son and make sure if he was ok. Asking us if I was going to clean up the puddle of puke on the floor saying that he didn't even want to touch and it made him want to throw up himself just by seeing it. I can understand it's disgusting but he seemed to fail to understand that I was more worried about my son being OK and wondering why he threw up all his food like that. I asked if there was a Janitor because from my understanding from previous experience from working in a public schools if a kid throws up it has to be cleaned up a certain way but he says there was no janitor. So of course feeling bad that my son made a mess I wiped it up no problem but here is where I wonder "WHAT THE HELL." After wiping it up which was pretty easy, my wife asks if there was a trash can so we could toss the puke soaked paper towel in in the trash but the bus boy just said put in the chip basket. I am thinking, "ARE YOU SERIOUS? YOU WERE SO GROSSED OUT BY 14 MONTH OLD PUKE AND SHOWED NO CONCERN FOR MY SON GETTING SICK ON THE FOOD AT YOUR RESTAURANT. AND NOW, YOU EQUALLY SHOW NO CONCERN FOR ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS TO EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT BY TELLING ME TO PUT THE PUKED SOAKED PAPER TOWEL IN THE CHIP BASKET?" That's right! I ended up putting a paper towel that this young man gave me to wipe up my son's puke back into the chip basket that EVERYBODY else eats chips off of.

Amazing doesn't even begin to describe this place! No wonder the wait is close to an hour for a table (very much worth it by the way). I have a very big taste for Mexican food and have been disappointed in the past by "#1 Places". But the enchiladas I ordered at Nuevo Laredo were some of the best I have had at a restaurant. They have wonderful salsa also which big pieces of cilantro to show its made fresh. I asked for fresh jalapenos on the side and boy did they have a kick! Made my meal that much better! I will be back soon!

Have you ever just wanted to experience authentic mexican food of the tex-mex variety? Being from Texas, I certianly do. This is the place. I moved here from San Antonio and simply could not find a decent mexican restaurant until we tried this place. Family owned and operated since opening in 1992. Lobster tacos, great chips and salsa and cold beer. It's a great combination.

So I will keep this review real simple. 1. The food is great. 2. The service is hit or miss 3. The margaritas are strong. 4. 9 times out of 10 you will probably experience a wait. 5. The food is great. I go back often because the food is great. This time we ordered the queso dip with chorizo. OHH EMMM GEEEEE! Can you come home with my queso dip with chorizo? Please? I love all things cheese. They give you queso with salsa and chorizo on the side. First of all the chorizo by itself is amazing and my friend has given me the secret to Nuevo Laredo. They use nutmeg and use it well. Well it's freaking delicious. The dip was like a meal by itself and that was among 3 people. Get the queso. Get it. Nuevo is about flavor. I had the chalupas and the plate was overflowing with yumminess. It came with rice and in looking at the rice, its looks mushy. But the flavor is just amazing. It doesn't taste mushy and that's what matters. Chalupas were covered with fresh quac, sour cream, pico de gallo and filled with tender yummy beef. It normally has beans but I skip them. It was made to order, hot, fresh and good! Anything I order from there has not disappointed me. Add a margarita and I have tried single serve and pitchers and they are strong and they are good. My favorite part is the bar is organized to take your drinks while you're waiting even if it's hectic in there. In the warmer months they have the outside bar. Not sure if they carry that out into the colder months. The service yea they are trying to get you your food and get to the next table. It's because it's high volume in there. So don't expect your server to sit down and chat with you. I highly recommend it as an excellent choice for Mexican on the west side of town.

I loved this place! My family and I went for my Dad's birthday. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. It felt like my family was cooking dinner for me. The staff was friendly and the food was great. The drinks were great too! Its a great value for your money :)

Small place and very busy, but worth the wait! We went on a Sunday evening and waited for about 45 minutes, but you can order drinks and take them on the patio to make the wait go by a little quicker. Great vegetarian choices - I ate the delicious avocado tacos. Despite the crowds, we had great, attentive service.
