While in town to see a play at the Fox, we enjoyed a delicious Mexican dinner at Escorpion. The service wasn't the speediest or the friendliest, our orders were accurate and served nice and hot. I had vegetarian enchiladas, and they were quite good, and plenty to eat. There was a large group nearby celebrating a birthday, so that may have been the reason for slightly less than ideal service. Still, we enjoyed our meal and I would gladly eat here again next time I'm in the area.

We happened upon Escorpion and are happy we did. The chile rellenno platter was great along with the cheese dip as an appetizer. The service was great too. We had very friendly servers.

We were strolling along looking for a fun place to have dinner before going to the Fox. After checking out the menu of tacos and other Mexican favorites we decided to give it a try. The food was great! The service was a bit slow, even though we arrived early, before the crowd hit. Its worth trying, but make sure not to show up too close to a play curtain time or you might be disappointed. Whike they did offer a quicker, pre-play limited menu, we didn't find the food to take too long. It was trying to get our waiter to take our order, then bring our check that took so long.

Stopped in here for dinner whilst on a short break to Atlanta and very glad we did. The chicken tacos were delicious and I loved the seasonal margarita (peach and jalapeno). The outside seating area was lovely although it was on a rather noisy road. Well worth a visit.

Great fried shrimp tacos. The corn on a stick is also fresh and has ton of flavor. The best part is the atmosphere...which could have been because it was pre-theater night. Great decor and music
