When Texans and Southern Californians say they’ve “finally found a great Mexican restaurant,” you know it’s good. That’s precisely the buzz Chance Evans’ Nuevo Laredo Cantina has garnered since it opened in 1992 - including being named one of the top 10 Mexican restaurants in the nation by Zagat and receiving “Best of Atlanta” titles every year since its opening. Evans’ appreciation for Mexico’s vibrant culinary traditions and his enchantment with Mexico is never more evident than when you bite into the menu’s from-scratch specialties like chicken mole, chiles rellenos, enchiladas and lobster tacos. 1495 Chattahoochee Ave., 404.352.9009, nuevolaredocantina.com
