My boyfriend and I went there for dinner because we were looking for authentic mexican food. The food is good but definitely overpriced. They put us back near the bar and it took 15 minutes for someone to ask us for our drink order. The restaurant was not packed at all as they only had 2 small parties. I will say I’ve had interaction with the owner outside of the restaurant and he was not as friendly as he was at the restaurant. He was rude as I was checking him out at the register. I always believe in being nice to everyone you come into contact with because you don’t know what they are going through. That experience honestly left a bad taste in my mouth. Definitely a first and last time I eat at this location.

Great authentic service by excellent staff. The owner is a former mariachi player and still gets the guitar down and plays at time. They recognize your family by name and will ask how your family is doing. The food is some of the best Mexican I have had, and I have not found a menu item that is not excellent.

Been here several times. It's genuinely authentic Mexican food. Being a Mexican American, this is close to what I grew up with, at home here in GA and Mexico. The boss man is energetic and makes you feel right at home. Muy bueno!!

Best Mexican restaurant in Georgia, including the high end ones. The house made chips are worth the 45 min drive from Buckhead. Friendly and attentive staff with the best Burrito in the world. Bravo you guys!

Is a small family business in which it was soooo expensive and the food wasn’t what I was expecting. I ordered a fajita quesadilla and all they gave me a stake quesadilla literally with 5 pieces of skinny stakes. I also order a chicken soup and it was mostly vegetables and no chicken. To get the ticket it took forever because the waitress was no where to be found. I usually don’t give bad reviews but I felt I didn’t get for what I paid for.

best chips EVER!

Their tacos are sooo good, they make homeade corn tortillas and they truly are amazing and probably the highlight of their foods! They provide you with onions, cilantro, lime, and salsa for your tacos (as Mexican restaurants should do anyways but some dont). I highly recommend this place if you are going for a more traditional tasting Mexican dish because these guys really nail it exceptionally well. Will be coming back for more of these tacos!

Food was some of the best Mexican I've had. Wonderful salsa & chips, good tamale..disappointed with enchilada (more like a quesidilla). Charged for supreme, which meant lettuce, tomato & sour cream, which was $2 more per plate. Did not ask fot it! Sly move for more sales!!! Owner took our order...he knew what he was doing .:(

We have a large Mexican community in town with huge selection of "cheese-dip" and authentic-style restaurants. This family-run venue is hands down the best Mexican food in town. Try the enchiladas verdes, birria de chivo and the homemade mole will kiss your tastebuds.

The owner is a great host. Aunthentic good food and reasonable prices. Haven't happen before, but after eating tacos de alambre here. Worse pain in my stomach ever. Almost felt like I had food poison or something. Didn't feel the food was bad; but it really kicked my gut.

Tried El Griton with my wife and a couple of friends, based on good reviews online. The reality was 100% as good as the reviews. The chips and salsa were fantastic, as were the gorditas that I ordered. I got the chef's choice (I'm a gambler), and all of them were delicious. Highly recommend. Lots of convenient parking, too.

Great local authentic food. This was my second visit on consecutive days, we had crispy fish tacos, steak tacos and carnitas tacos which are not on the menu, ask for them they are out of this world. Service was great too they really treat you like family.

Family owned and run restaurant using family recipes. The salsa is thick and tasty with the right amount of heat. The guacamole is made fresh and has a hint of lime. Their mole is fantastic. The servings are plentiful. The service is upbeat, friendly and very attentive. The space is generous and very clean. Prices are reasonable. The food is too good. We've been back 6 times in the last 3 weeks.
