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

HOLLY TACO HEAVEN!! – This is my NEW favorite taco joint. the tequilla list is out of control and they are great with the recommendations. Try the lobster tacos, they are tooooooo good. Oh and there's a deal on al la carte lobster tacos that's way worth it.

YUMMMMMM!

Oh, but if it's a group of two try and show up a little early cause it gets pretty packed around 7ish I've noticed.

Fantastic Service, Great Food, Good prices – Pazole is our favorite restaurant in VaHi. It is definitely the best mexican in the neighborhood - always fresh and flavorful- and we love that they frequently run specials and change the menu. It seems like there is always something new and exciting to try. Their margaritas are awesome (jalepeno is my fave), and they have so many different tequilas. Early in the evening they are very family friendly - even providing coloring pages and crayons for the kids. Later, the atmosphere takes on a much more adult feel.The staff is super friendly and helpful, and the prices are reasonable. With or without our kids in tow, we love it!

Excellent service, great margaritas, and good food at a fair price – The thing we like most about Pozole is the outstanding service! The hostess, bar staff, wait staff and management are consistently friendly, courteous, and attentive. The staff always has a positive demeanor, and treats patrons as guests. We are regular visitors, and while we enjoy the food and margaritas, the service is what really keeps us coming back.

The early evening crowd consists of families, transitioning to a younger social set later in the evening (drawn in by the variety of tequilas and friendly, casual atmosphere no doubt). The food is excellent, and reasonably priced. We usually start with the chips and flavorful variety of salsas. They often have specials for starters and main course that are also full of flavor. Our favorites from the regular menu are the tacos (beef or pork), pork quesadillas, and green mole enchiladas.

If you're a visitor to Virginia Highlands, include this restaurant/tequila bar on your rotation - I highly recommend it!

Best deal in atlanta on a Thursday Night – So, while perusing around the Highlands last week my sweet B and I saw the cutest board outside listing phenomenally cheep drinks. We decided to take a closer look, and we were baffled to see that they were offering 5 of their margaritas for almost half of what they usually charge. As if that wasn't sweet enough, they also do half off their late night menus( starts at 11 p.m.). The late night menu consists of tacos and your usual dips of sorts (go for the queso and guac combo muy bueno). Because the drinks were so reasonably priced I got to try 3. I suggest the Pomegranate and the jalapeno. Jalapeno sounds weird but really it just blends perfectly with their mix. The B was jonesin on the perfect. The service was great and knowlegeble, offering a short education into the vast tequila list. All in all a great Thursday night! WIll be back next week!

Best Tacos in the ATL!!! – Just found this place while out walking in the Highlands. It may be my new favorite ATL taqueria. I tried the special Shrimp Tacos which were absolutely delicious and perfectly complimented by my awesome "Perfect" margarita which was on special too! (Thursday special I think) Can't wait to go back soon and try some more great food and drinks!!

What a nice change!!!! – I recently dined at Pozole for about the fifth time, and thoroughly enjoyed it! I think that the atmosphere allows me to enjoy myself as well as my friends. Being a casual place, it is amazing that the service is so above average! You can tell that the servers are happy to be there, and pleased to serve. The bartenders are fantastic about expressing their knowledge on tequila. That helps out alot with the unexperienced tequila fan such as myself. The food is special too. I loved the Lobster tacos! It is, and always has been a wonderful all around experience for myself and my wife. I'll be back many times...OH, and I also love the "Movie and Margarita" night on Wednesdays!!

Corn tortillas? YUCK!!! – My friend and I went there a few times and thought the food was subpar but could never determine why until we got take out one night. We finally figured out why the tacos tasted funky....CORN TORTILLAS! It just makes the food taste yucky. Overall the other food on the menu is just ok, but if you do go just stick to chips and salsa with one of their margaritas. I do suggest the pomegranate. Just avoid the food if you can...not good. Service is just ok, but it can get super busy and is definitely NOT worth the wait! You have a better chance of getting tasty food and drinks as well as great service at Noche which is only a few blocks down....

VERY average for refined tongues who know Mexican fusion – While in town with my boyfriend for work we went to the quaint Highlands area after reading such raving reviews. The menu SOUNDED incredible. We were very impressed with the variety of options and the delicious ingredients in each dish. What we got was incredibly average. True, we're from LA and we are spoiled by the fact that we can't walk 10 paces without coming upon delicious and simple Mexican food. We don't fault it on their lack of authenticity, instead we surmise this must have been a bad chef night, or the chefs aren't properly trained since they won "Best of 2007 Atlanta: Audience Award." In short, the mojito was flavorless and sugary, the tuna cheviche was DRENCHED in olive oil?!!?! The fajitas didn't come sizzling, instead they came soaked in a soupy shrimp flavored goo. WTHeck? Even the churros were bland. Where was the simple ingredient of cinnammon on my churro? Seriously? It's really too bad. Looked so cute and our waiter was nice enough.

Awesome food at great prices! – This place is awesome. The food is great, the service is super accomodating, and the prices can't be beat. My girl friends and I ordered a variety of drinks - the mojitos were about average (I like them better at places like Pura Vida), they were a little on the sweet side; the red sangria was good; but the margaritas were amazing! (Which is probably why they're famous for them!) We tried the jalapeno marg, which was intriguing but tasty, and their house margarita is a sure thing. We ordered chips and the 3 salsas as an appetizer, the pineapple salsa was delicious! As well as the queso dip. For dinner, most of us ordered a combination of the tacos, which are absolutely delicious as well. And so cheap! I loved the atmosphere of this place - very casual, very young, but very loud, so it's not exactly the best "romantic date" spot. But it's definitely great to dine there with a small group of friends, and definitely make reservations!! Parking is difficult, I recommend parking across the street in the pay lot.

Great Food & Service! – The Service is great. The food is really good as well. It has a great flavor to it. They also have chips and salsa on the menu that comes with 3 types of salsa. My friend and I thought that the "pineapple" salsa was going to be gross, but ended up liking it the best and ordering seconds. The atmosphere is comfortable and fun. The drinks are made very well and you are never left with an empty glass! I definately recommend this restaurant!
