Saturdays In The City: Mexican Date Night

Who doesn’t love a good Date Night and Mexican food?

Adam and I have found and fallen in love with a local, hole-in-the-wall, authentic Mexican Restaurant in Atlanta.

Nuevo Laredo Cantina!

Doesn’t it just sound delicious and fun?

Although, Nuevo is a hole-in-the-wall, (with maybe 25 tables) most local Atlantans know about it. Anyone who is anyone makes a stop at Nuevo while visiting Atlanta. Photos line the walls of owner, Chance, with famous celebrities. On beautiful days this place is packed!

Part of the fun of going to Nuevo is to arrive early and have one of their “Cadillac Margaritas”! Trust us….one is all you need!

Once seated you’ll be served their Homemade Chips and Salsa. Their Salsa is more of a Pico de Gallo than a heavy tomato based salsa. A must have appetizer- “Cebollitas”– Charbroiled Scallions with Lime. We know, you are probably questioning our recommendation, but trust us. They are worth it!


Owner, Chance Evans “recommended dishes are the Brisket Barbacoa, Chicken Mole (mo-lay), over-stuffed poblano Chili Rellenos, and the most recent menu additions- Lobster or Fish (grilled salmon) Tacos.”

If we’re on a Holly/Adam Date Night or having Nuevo with our Couple Friends Adam (and his guy pals) always order “Brisket Barbacoa” or “Tacos de Brisket”. Oh! So! Good!

My favorite meal on the menu is the “Tacos de Carne Asada”. Lean Fajita meat topped with onion and cilantro in a tortilla. Each taco plate is served with 3 tacos and we typically order a side of rice and beans to share.

Not the best picture-sorry!
