Reasonable prices, tasty food. Good variety of tacos. Loved the Chile Rellenos and the fried chicken taco. Interesting drinks too. Quite warm and loud in the restaurant.

Good service but average food. I had the enchiladas which were ok but had slightly too much spice in them and did not have a great deal of cheese. The atmosphere is nice but this is more a place to go get a nice drink.

High energy and good service. Lots of gluten free options, which is great!! The food was alright, add hot sauce for a kick! We'd come back again!

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!

This place would have more stars from me, but the service was so terrible that even giving it 2 stars is being generous. Waitress was rude, didn't ask once if we needed drink refills, took forever to come back to give me the bill. When...More
