blechhhh, 2/01/2008

OK, the other reviewers must have been wasted and had the munchies, in which case stale Corn Nuts would have passed for the "best food ever!" Either that, or they are shills / employees. Regrettably,... I say these things having just returned home after giving this establishment a second try and leaving extremely disappointed. To begin with, my wife and I were there for more than an hour and a half. It was just the two of us, we ordered simple dishes, and ate fairly quickly once we did finally get the food. The place was less than half full on a Friday night at 9PM, so there's no excuse for that kind of wait. It took forever to get our order taken, then another eternity to get the check, by which point we were more than ready to escape. The food was okay, but definitely not good. Brown gravy is not mole sauce, guys. I had to stop halfway through my chicken enchiladas when I hit a bone in the shredded chicken. The atmosphere is a joke. Don't get me wrong - I love little hole in the wall Mexican places, but this place is just pathetic suburban drop-ceiling cheap. Unfortunately, you don't have to try too hard when you're near a college, and that's the impression I got from both visits. While not quite as horrid as Los Loros down the road (although their takeout is okay), Mexico City Gourmet is a place that I definitely recommend avoiding unless you don't have any standards.

The best!, 3/04/2006

This is the best Mexican restaurant in Atlanta. We go here just about once a month, if not more. The staff is friendly, fast and the food is wonderful.

More than just "Speedy Gonzales"

Just like the name says, this truly is Mexican food done up gourmet style. Margaritas come in a decanter as opposed to a beer pitcher. The food leans toward Cuban in style, at least based on my experience with a similar place, La Fonda Latina. Definitely not your typical "order by the numbers" Mexican joint (you know, where Speedy Gonzales is always number one!). Oh, did I mention it's delicious? And the servings also are huge -- leftovers!
