I am all for giving second chances because hey who does everything right the first time around… I mean we are humans and we ALL make mistakes right? In life you learn that it doesn’t matter how you make the mistake, it’s what you do to fix it and more importantly that you learn to never make that same type of mistake twice. With that being said… Cinco Mexican Cantina has definitely learned that lesson 100 folds over! The first time I went to Cinco my experience was not so pleasant, and I did voice my opinion not expecting anything in return but WOW! Did that establishment prove me wrong! It all started when the CEO of FIVE Restaurant Group (owner of the Cinco Mexican Cantina restaurants) called me personally (yes little ol’ me) to apologize about my experience and invited me and my 30 guests back to the restaurant for dinner. When we arrived for the dinner party the customer service was outstanding! Our waiters- Tony and Levon treated us with 5-star service. Levon reviewed and explain in full detail about each item on the menu, I was totally impressed! Not only was I impressed but my guests were so happy. One guests said I feel like I am on the Food Network because the wait staff was there for our every need! How could I forget the food… very very very good! My food was excellent; I had the grilled salmon with a jalapeño potato cake and asparagus. This dinner was really for my guests because had it been just for me I would have never complained about the first dining experience, but my guests came to support me and I wanted to make sure they were happy and they were more than satisfied with our Re-do dinner yesterday! I learned a very important lesson- why not give a second chance? You never know, the second chance might be a lasting impression. I will remember Cinco Mexican Cantina as a restaurant with great service, suberb food, cool atmosphere and amazing customer service! You should definitely try it out; I promise you will not be disappointed. Muy Muy Bueno!
Bar Taco nails it on atmosphere. You walk in and instantaneously get happy (and in the mood for a margarita or two). This is the perfect place for a quick weeknight dinner, after work drink, or for a Friday night group dinner with friends. Service is good, food is good (and relatively inexpensive), drinks are great, and most of the time it is easy to split the bill. Tacos are SMALL so make sure you order at least 3. Don't just go for dinner. The lunch special is a great deal...three tacos and your choice of soup or salad for $10! Parking at the Buckhead location is easy and free and wait times are extremely reasonable (I have never waited more than 20 minutes and typically, I don't wait at all).
This spot has some good Tex-Mex selections and drink selections, and lots of HD TV's will make this a favorite spot for watching sports games. They also have many events although I haven't participated in any of them yet. I usually get the Fish Tacos and fried pickles which are always outstanding....I mostly drink beer so I don't have any experience with the different drinks they offer, but they have a good selection especially for margaritas. The Fajitas are also another winner here if you're a fajita lover like myself. It's always a plus to see cute girls in the staff, and Twisted Taco does a pretty good job here.
