Yes, like a beacon of warmth, happiness, and queso dip, Tin Lizzy's is providing their own brand of Tex-Mex therapy to Emory Point. (Really, is there any worldly woe that a basket of fried fish tacos and a generous serving of Texas margaritas can't cure?)For just short of a decade, Tin Lizzy's has been synonymous with good tacos, plentiful tequila, and live music. Though the cantina originally got its start slinging skillets in Buckhead all those years ago, their newest metro location is giving students and Decatur neighbors a welcome watering hole where the margaritas are strong and the tequila flows like honey. Yes, like a beacon of warmth, happiness, and queso dip, Tin Lizzy's is providing their own brand of Flex-Mex therapy to Emory Point. (Because, really, is there any worldly woe that a basket of fried fish tacos and a generous serving of Texas margaritas can't cure? If you think so, take two Texas 'Ritas and call us in the morning.)
Walking inside Tin Lizzy's Emory outpost, it's pretty much impossible to not immediately feel ever-so-slightly more festive—and that's before you even lay a hand on that watermelon-basil margarita. Decked out with tequila barrels and roll-up garage doors that open the bar area into a patio, this joint feels closer to the beach than to Briarcliff. That laid-back, breezy atmosphere makes its way to the menu, too, with a casual, approachable vibe that brings traditional Flex-Mex favorites (like those beloved fried fish tacos) together with favorites that aren't quite so traditional, but still crazy delicious (see: the burger taco, which is just as delicious as it sounds). With over two dozen taco configurations from which to choose, there's something for just about everyone on the menu. That goes for the libation side of things, too, including a rotating roster of local beer, a cheap – yet effective — margarita, and a list of specialty margaritas that incorporate ingredients like watermelon, pomegranate, and Thai basil. (Note: that last one, paired with coconut tequila, tastes like a day at the beach, no matter how frightful the weather might be.)
