A bit of a hidden gem, Pozole is tucked behind Highland Avenue and features some awesome Guacamole!

Great late night eats. The margaritas and tacos are well done and perfect for a Mexican fix.

discrimination against people with service dogs! – Went to Pozole's on a Sunday night at 9:30p. I have an ADA protected disability and use a qualified service dog with proper display (service vest and leashed) with excellent behavior. I was told I could not bring the service dog into the restaraunt. I explained that she was a service dog and not a pet. I was told she was not welcomed. I explained that she was a qualitfied service dog and they couldn't dicriminate against me. To top it off, he asked if I was training or was she actually doing something for me. I told him yes, she was my dog. It was incredibly humiliating and the first time in 2 yrs of living in Atl that I was embarrased and made to feel like an outsider. I should have left but really wanted to try the food. The server (same guy who told me I wasnt welcomed with my service dog) apologized and said he had never actually had a service dog in the restaraunt before. Unbelievable. Really? In a city as big and diverse as Atl. But it didnt seem to end there. I am hearing impaired. He would walk up behind me and speak to me and make it virtually impossible to read his lips or understand what he was saying. I dont know if this was intentional or not but once again, I felt like he was trying to make me as uncomfortable as possible. It worked. Won't go back. I wonder if he would treat someone in a wheelchair or who was blind the same way. Would expect more from a "friendly" neighborhood restaraunt. Food and margarita was good but I hope you'll conside the way this restaraunt treats people with disabilities. Shameful.

Great margaritas – I have had dinner at Pozole several times, and it's a large portion and tasty food. The margarita selection is also really good. Small dining room, so prepare to wait, but this is a great little spot. Best margaritas.

I'm a Fan – I went to this place today and It was pretty good. I had the (not so)Spicy Guacamole, which was creamy and chunky with some diced raw jalapenos in it. My entree was with 2 Tilapia tacos & a chicken taco. They had a nice light flavor, the salsa that came with it added more umph, the rice and beans were well cooked and not overly seasoned. The service was pretty fast even though the lady serving me wasnt in a dull mood.

Thanks for stopping by! If you are a fan of our tacos, come by on Wednesdays when they are only $1.00.

Extremely Recommended – Yes, the tables are lined with brown packing paper.

Yes, there's an ATM within 6" of the door.

Yes, the place isn't much to look at, and gives off a 'neighborhood bar' feel more than that of a gourmet restaurant.

However, before turning away in disgust for a swankier place, actually sit down and have a taco before you change your mind. Besides, where else are you going to get tacos anywhere near this quality at 2am on a weekday? Besides, it took you this long to find a parking spot anyway.

This was the first time I ever liked the food so much I requested seconds of something. The chicken tacos were definitely my favorite for the night. The prices are very reasonable, even on the late night menu (Which is offered from 11pm to 2:30am). Thursdays, however, can save you a fortune! They do HALF OFF their late night menu on Thursdays. We had five tacos between two people, queso dip, and two sodas, and our bill was only $15, and registered as a $10.50 savings. Wow! I am definitely going to put my annoyance with the loud drunk wench at the bar aside and try this place again sometime, perhaps when they're offering the full menu during the day, or during their Lunch weekend specials from 1pm.

efficient wait staff and good food – My friends and I went here on a Saturday night. We were lucky to snag a table given how packed the place was and the fact that we didn't have a reservation. The staff was friendly and the food was great! I especially loved the empanadas.

Surprisingly good! – We went here on Friday night and showed up close to 10 pm. The place was packed and we put our name on the list and sat at the bar. Wait was short and they even found us a great table on the patio which is great b/c it was incredibly hot and loud inside. Drinks were ok, maybe a little watered down....but the chicken nachos were pretty awesome and the empanadas were good too. Our server was super nice and very good at her job. The biggest con was the music. Really cheesy 80's music that isn't really what I'd expect for a young, hip weekend crowd. Still, I can't wait to go back to try more off their menu.

WoW!!! – I went to Pozole for the first time tonight and HAD to write a review. I was there for a birthday party for my girlfriend and had really never heard of the place. After accomplishing the arduous task of parking, I was a little bummed, no lie, but after settling in and having the most fabulous pomegranite margarita, I was set at ease. Their margaritas are served on shaved ice and are awesome!! Our server was a red head and she was personable and kind, half the experience. I had the lobster tacos, which are probably the most expensive thing on the menu ($23?), but you get 2 lobster tails for that price along with sides and what-not and that ain't too shabby. They are UNBELIEVABLE. If you have not tried them, do. You deserve it. All in all, we felt so welcome and happy, I can't wait to go back. It is ideal for a birthday party, girls night out. Very, very awesome!
