I was born in Texas so my standards for Tex-Mex are high. Escorpion is good, better than most in Atlanta.
Excellent Chile Relleno.

We paid money as part of the The Atlanta Taco Crawl! We showed up and the manager told us they had reservations and did not have a server for us! Horrible and will never visit here again!

Had some great cheese enchiladas - my personal test of a Mexican restaurant. It's a simple dish that's easily flubbed by most. Theirs were tasty and spicy. Rice and beans similarly well prepared. Service was very good. Only downside is there is a bar in the same space and people there were too noisy.

Gave this place a try one night. It is a loud place which makes it hard to visit. The service was chaotic. Had three different people take our initial drink order and then two different people handle the bill.

My wife ordered the fish tacos and they were horrible. The worst I have ever tried. She did not eat them. They had a nasty fishy taste. I almost spit out the one bite I tried.

I ordered the carne asada tacos which were flavorless. They were tender but zero flavor. The beans were the best part of the meal.

Poor service, loud atmosphere, and terrible food. We won't be back.
