Lime Taqueria

Don’t read this review…..

……….if you are expecting a review of a typical Mexican restaurant

……….if you are looking for an inexpensive meal

……….if you are looking for a casual eatery or a family style restaurant

Lime is none of these things. What it is is an upscale restaurant that has spared no expense when it comes to design and decor. It is evident in the colorful furnishings and the lime them throughout the entire restaurant. They have giant limes throughout the restaurant, limes are printed on the napkins in restrooms, even the dishes are lime-shaped.

What it is is a great place to go after work on nice day and sit outside and sip mojitos, cosmos or margaritas with friends. I went there on a recent Wednesday after work to meet a friend for drinks and dinner. They have drink specials of cosmopolitans for $6. As we are both Sex And The City fans we couldn’t pass this up. And I’m so happy I didn’t. They were outstanding! I had a buzz going on 3/4 of the way through my first drink. Any restaurant that isn’t stingy with the liquor gets big points in my book.

As far as the food, we both had to try the mini gordas which is like a huge dumpling if you can imagine it stuffed with shredded beef, potatoes, tomatillo sauce, and some amazing spices. Definitely the best thing we tried. As this was quite filling on its own, we each opted to try some tacos: mole, shrimp, chorizo, and chicken.

Had I known how small these would be I think I would have just gotten a salad or another mini gordas order. For the price $3-$5, I expected more. My shrimp taco had 1 shrimp in it and was $4.50. Not to mention the sauce just about set my mouth on fire. I would go back but probably just for drinks or if I had a gift certificate (click banner below).

Service was great. Very attentive but not overly annoying. Just the way I like it.

Unique Indian Cuisine

Finally – a good Indian restaurant in Atlanta with Friendly service!!!!

I love Indian food, but don’t love driving 30 + miles to get to a restaurant. I admit I am OTP, but come on, we should have some decent Indian restaurants in Cobb.

Service: Not only is the food some of the best I’ve ever had, the staff (ALL OF THEM) are so helpful and friendly. We went there for my brother’s birthday and everyone was cheerful and so accommodating. Some of the other Indian restaurants in Atlanta could take their cues from this place on how to treat customers.

Food: The Chicken Tikki Masala was perfectly flavored and just the right amount of spiciness. And the breads: Naan, Poori, etc, etc, – I could make a meal out of those alone! I love that they get that not everyone loves Chernobyl level spiciness.

Would love to try the lunch buffet sometime. I bet its great.
