    Share the tacos. In order we liked the carnitas, steak, chicken, and then the avacado. The street corn is a good side as well though it'll be a lot to eat!

    I love the unique tequila selections and margaritas, but it’s the memorable and unique interpretations of classic Mexican fare that has you wondering how long has downtown had food this tasty? Read more

    There are four entrée-sized dishes, but only one of us indulged — a flat iron steak with adobo sauce and sides of goat-cheese potato gratin, spiced with poblano chiles, and avocado-arugula salad. Read more

    A smart, sleek modern Mexican restaurant tucked into the lobby of a downtown office tower. Great margaritas and ceviches as well as more involved entrees. The kitchen also makes a mean tamale. Read more

    Need a perfect and perfectly delicious lunch? Try the fried avocado taquitos! Great portion - 2 taquitos with rice + beans. Amazing flavor - you won't be disappointed!

    One of the best to ever do it...delicious Amatitán margarita...goes down smoothly...plus a beautifully mastered Pork Belly Tostada...I had mine with the Mexican Chopped Salad...a must visit!!!
  • Creative Loafing Atlanta
    But I recommend the Amatitan, made with reposado tequila and channeling the woodier, funkier qualities of the spirit rather than trying to cover it up with loads of saccharine. Read more

    Mahi tacos and naranjo-Rita were excellent. But was very unpressed by the service I received and witnessed other customers getting as well...

    While Alma does suffer from some of the pitfalls of "modern Mexican," it also gets a lot right, taking traditional dishes and refining them just enough to allow you to taste them afresh. Read more

    Awesome food .... Michael & Jose are great servers so ask for them!!! If you prefer grilled fish on the tacos just ask and the chef will accommodate. Yummy!!! Great for vegetarians too.

    The tomato salad has nothing to do with Mexico but everything to do with seasonal and local wonderfulness. I eat it all throughout the summer.

    The corn guacamole is a spicy slice of heaven pie. You could (quite literally) rub it all over your body. Order it. Make a reservation.

    I wasn’t thrilled when I saw the price of the entrees. Much more than I like to pay. I ended up with happy hour priced pork rinds, and 3 street tacos.

    Five at four happy hour. Skip the $5 margarita, go straight for the $5 whiskey manhattan.

    The white bean puree is all vegetarian and is wonderful. Get this over the traditional black beans for a tastier side.

    A little pricey but pretty good. The guacamole flight was great. They don't let you mix and match Taco platters. Very disappointing.

    Not authentic mexican food, average to low corvina ceviche and good masa fried shrimp tacos! No waiting time, excellent and fast service!

    Be prepared for a lot of salt on the chips and in the guacamole. Also this is all you get for six bucks.

    Veggie options sound great. Mostly flavourless. Corn tortillas are grocery store quality. Avoid them.
