Great place to wind down after some serious partying. Had lunch here to celebrate a friend's birthday. Awesome margaritas.

I was amazed how run down this place had become over the years, compared to what it was in the late 90s. But, a lot can change in 20 years, right? This place clearly needs some updating and routine maintenance if it expects to draw repeat customers. If we had not taken a taxi there, I probably would have left... More

The fish tacos I ordered were good, but not great. I ordered grilled talipia, not fried, with corn tortillas. They had so much inside that it was hard to pick them up: red cabbage, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, and onion. But, no sauce. The Mango Salsa, served on the side was too sweet for me. Without it, the tacos were a... More

Menu says you can only have two of the purple Margaritas, we had 4 each. Hammer time..... Food was way better than any Mexican I can get in Atlanta. Price was fine, server was great.

The purple Rita was great! That's where we should've stopped. Our food was ok, but nothing special and there will not be a return visit for the food. If you are afraid of germs just stay away. You know the old rule, if the bathroom is gross then rested a sure that the kitchen is gross,the bathroom is bad. Great... More

Went to Chuy's down the road. They had a 30 minute wait. Came to Baby A's . I now know why there was no wait at Baby Acapulco's. Better Tex Me in the Midwest.

We went for a late lunch. It was fairly empty and clean. The food was good and the waitress was friendly. I had pork and pineapple tacos with rice and beans. My husband had shrimp enchiladas with rice and black beans. Both dishes were good and we will go back again.

3 of us went for lunch and everything was great! Free chips were excellent, not the typical resturant chips. Salsa was nice. Shared some queso dip which was very good. We had a variety of things; I had a large Burrito with beef ; it was large, fresh and very good. We will absolutely be back.

Thank Lawrence S
