Restaurant Review – Nuevo Laredo Cantina | Atlanta Eats

On the west side of Atlanta there’s a restaurant that’s been open for more than 20 years. In an industry where keeping your doors open for a decade is considered successful, doubling that number is no small feat. Chance Evans started a restaurant called U.S. Bar Y Grill back in the 80s. Chance sold Bar y Geill and took an extended vacation in Mexico. When he came back, in 1992, he opened Nuevo Laredo Cantina. Chance can’t have expected the wild success that accompanied the new restaurant, because it won Atlanta Magazine’s Best of Atlanta before the end of its second year, and in every one of the 19 years since then it’s won Zagat’s Award of Distinction. Serving up classic Mexican dishes, Nuevo Laredo wows diners with guacamole, enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, and everything you could possibly want in, on, or near a tortilla.
