The first impression is very nice. It's a large place, but not too noisy. We were a large group and seated quickly. Then it took 30 minutes to receive our drinks. When the food arrived, only have the table received their Orders and then 10...More

It's worth the trip just for the Guacamole. It's $9 and sooooooo good. So fresh so perfect. My entree wasn't great. I ordered pork tacos that were supposed to have grilled pineapples and the pineapples weren't fresh so it was a let down for me....More

Really enjoyed sitting upstairs. There is also outdoor seating. Nice modern/industrial interior design, nice art work and the energy is right. Staff was attentive. Appetizers were good and the drinks were spot on.

If you like mexican food close to the Cobb Galleria then I highly recommend this place. Great food, frozen margarita's and live music some nights of the week.

We tried to get into a restaurant close by, and we had a table booked, but the traffic was backed up onto the interstate! With twin newborns on board, the day was beginning to look like a bust! But we called Cinco, and they were...More

Arrived early, got seated immediately and waitress arrived soon thereafter. Signature margarita was good. If you get a pitcher, better have a designated driver. Chips and salsa was warm and okay. Asked for hotter sauce and they responded in kind. Boy was it hot and...More

We are Mexican food with an attitude! We are a place where you can enjoy great upscale Mexican cuisine in a casual, yet highly sophisticated environment. The food and decor set the tone, in both quality and vibrant presentation. While taste is of the utmost importance, we believe that the ambience is welcoming due to the live music and friendly staff.
