Winner: Best Mexican food in Atlanta | Best of Atlanta

Atlantans have strong opinions when it came time to vote for the best Mexican food in Atlanta. There are tons of great options, from delightful eats on Buford Highway to great tacos and enchiladas in Buford Village, Atlanta has a wonderful selection of Mexican food. 

However, there can only be one winner. You voted, and chose...

Nuevo Laredo Cantina swept the poll for the second year in a row with 27 percent of the vote. This Westside spot has been among Atlanta's favorites since 1992. 

Superica has been praised by the AJC in the past as one of the best places for queso in Atlanta. As our writer put in 2016, "Order the queso and you'll know why [Superica is always packed]."
