Nuevo Laredo is back and better than ever. Up until 2012 it was my favorite place to eat when slowly the service dropped a notch.. Stale chips were the norm. Next my fajitas got smaller as prices went up. What a surprise when I happened to give the place another try in late December 2015. I learned that they recently brought in a new chef.. (more to come)

Love this place!! Delicious food, big portions, and a friendly staff. Only downside is its popularity and the long wait times for dinner (much quicker during lunch I've found). They have wonderfully strong margaritas to go along with their amazing salsa and chips. Recommendations: anything with chorizo, the crab enchiladas, dishes with the mole sauce, any of their tacos, the quesadilla, and chile relleno. Remember, the portions are HUGE, so go with an appetite or be prepared to take home leftovers. Parking can be tricky right next to it, but they also have a large parking lot across the street.

I am sharing this story of the most egregious, atrocious, and demeaning experience I had last night while dining at Nuevo Laredo. I have never felt more humiliated, embarrassed, and simply appalled at the rogue treatment I received while eating at this restaurant! I can only attribute the blatant disrespect and insulting and extremely hostile treatment I received last night to sheer ignorance and discrimination--which, I am embarrassed to write, involved the manager of this restaurant - Michelle Patrick - calling the police - via 911 -because I refused to pay for an $11 meal that I did not eat and refused to pay for! And let me be very clear: I did NOT eat the full meal and later claim to not like it only to have the item removed from the bill. Also, I am not one to routinely send meals back at a restaurant for superfluous reasons. This was the one rare time out of many that I have eaten at this restaurant where I actually didn’t like the food. Since I communicated to both the waitress and manager that I was not going to pay for my meal, my friend paid for her food and we got up to leave the restaurant. As we walked outside, my friend recalled that she'd forgotten her umbrella and went back into the restaurant to retrieve it. Inside, the manager - if you choose to call her that - tells my friend in a condescending tone to "go get your friend" so I could pay for the meal that I previously told her I wasn't paying for. When my friend refused, the manager proceeded to dial 911 and exclaimed that she was calling the police on me! I walked back in the restaurant to see what was taking my friend so long, only to be hit with stares from the patrons that were dining, as Michelle Patrick was communicating all of this in front of the entire restaurant! How class-less! I was appalled and dismayed to hear that she had called the police to report me for not paying for the $11 plate of food that I did not like and did not eat. Incredulous and upset, my friend and I stated that we were determined to wait for the police to arrive so I could report my side of the story. The last time I checked, it is not a crime for me to dislike a plate of food that was ordered at a restaurant and not pay for it. After many times being a patron at this restaurant, the one time I decide to exchange I was treated like a pure criminal. The police officer arrived and asked the manager if I had eaten the entire plate and skipped out on the bill or if I had only sampled the food. The manager attempted to lie but begrudgingly conceded that I'd only sampled the food and that they'd meant to cancel the 911 call. Can you believe that taxpayer dollars were wasted on this? This officer could have been using his time to prevent or respond to a real crime – like rape, a robbery, or God-forbid a murder - but he's spending his time answering a 911 call over an $11 taco diablo! I'm outraged over the employee and manager's behavior and truly feel we were singled out as black women in the restaurant. It is a travesty that in 2015, I, as a grown woman - a highly-skilled professional, I might add - was reduced to being treated like a petty thief by the malice of these individuals and their disregard for me as a person and customer. Again, this restaurant called 911, the EMERGENCY line, to report me for refusing to pay for an $11 dish that I did not eat. I believe their actions were deplorable and based on bigotry. I'm sharing this story so that no one else has to deal with their stupidity, contempt, and clear lack of judgement.

First off, this is NOT "Authentic" Mexican food. It's just Americanized Mexican food, the same stuff you can find all over Georgia. Stop saying it's authentic, please. Go to Buford Highway for something close to "authentic". Food is okay, nothing special, but with the wait and the prices- I'll take my empty stomach elsewhere.

We were told that it was the very best Mexican food in the area. In reality, very disappointing. the food was bland and without taste. I had the steak Diablo. The rice and beans was cold and the worst steak I ever had. It was cut up in very small pieces with a red sauce over it, gristle included. The very worst dinning experience I ever had. The tables were so close together that people had to get up off their seats so we could get to our table. Tables were very close to each other in both levels. If there would be an emergency, people would be trambled to death trying to get to the one exit. I wonder if the fire marshall is aware of the over crowding that occurs in this awful restaurant

You cannot beat the food here. It is unreal delicious. I've been here several times. Yes, it's always crowded, but I never had to wait long for a table. My suggestion is to go early for dinner, around 5 PM, or late for lunch, around 2:30 PM. Think of it as an early bird special! Parking is horrid, and it's best to park across the street where there is more room. Service is usually very quick. Although, there are a few instances where the server doesn't come back after ordering so I never got a refill of beer, but that happens at most restaurants occasionally. The food: The enchiladas are covered in a warm, red sauce and smothered in cheese. The refried beans are creamy and delicious with a hint of spice. This restaurant makes you want to order two entrees just to keep eating. My suggestion? Get a bowl of queso and ask for a side of chorizo. The chorizo is rich, spicy and with a hint of cinnamon. Don't be surprised if you just grab a spoon and eat it straight out of the bowl! GO GO GO!
