Taqueria Los Hermanos

Reviewed By mikeofduluth - Duluth, Georgia

We have been coming to this restaurant--both this location and the Lilburn location--for over 10 years. It's all about the food--nothing fancy about the location or the atmosphere. And it's not typical "chain" Mexican food with the multiple combinations of tacos, burritos, tostitas, etc. (although you can get them, too): most of the menu consists of traditional dishes, such as chicken with mole sauce (one of my favorites) and burrito pastor. Plenty of meat, chicken, seafood, and vegetarian options, with large portions and reasonable prices. The chips are warm and the salsa is homemade and the servers keep them coming. In fact, the service is very fast across the board, from seating through paying the bill, even through every time we go the place is busy. Even at the height of dinner hour you can be in and out in 45 minutes, or enjoy post-dinner conversation for another hour without hassle. It's our go-to Mexican restaurant.

Marlow's Tavern

I think it may be one of several Marlow's Taverns in the Atlanta area. It is located inside the Doubletree Hotel

This was our choice for dining two times after very long days. Service was friendly and efficient. The fries were properly seasoned. The sandwiches are large. There are several TVs to look at when conversation lags. I would dine here again if I was in the area.

Greater Good Barbecue

Reviewed By rustybob64 - Dahlonega, Ga

We had a good experience, disappointed because they were out of Fried Ribs, Hot Links, and a couple of other items. Service was good. We started with the fried jalapenos that were amazing, we couldn't stop eating them. baby back ribs were very good as was the brisket. I did have pulled pork also that was overcooked and mushy.
want to go back and try fried ribs.

The deli was right next to our hotel which made it very convenient. Unable to order online because of the hotel address, but going into the restaurant was not a problem. Service was quick, sandwiches hot and delicious.

This is in a small strip mall on Northlake Parkway.

Reviewed By Christina P - Stockbridge, Georgia, United States

Don't let the weird location fool you. This place is the real deal! Went in for dinner after looking at other reviews and was not disappointed. Sign said 'seat yourself' so I chose a booth in the middle of the room. Behind the counter you can see the meats cooking on the grill. Decor is older, but appropriate for a BBQ joint. My waitress was the picture of Southern hospitality, perfect service all around. I ordered the $10 half chicken plate with collard greens and Brunswick stew on her recommendation. Everything was melt in your mouth good. They had caramelized bbq sauce on the outside of the chicken and then gave more to dip. Collards were excellent, and the Brunswick stew was the best I've had at a restaurant. Garlic bread was good too!

Local No. 7

Reviewed By AZCatfan1 - Atlanta, Georgia

Local No. 7 is a fits in well with Main Street Tucker. The pomegranate margarita was delicious. The burger was great. The Philly cheesesteak was not made with the typical meat of this sub. My husband stated it tasted more like a roast beef sandwich than a Philly cheesesteak.. and he is from Philly. My sweet potato fries came out hot and crisp. His french fries had obviously been sitting for some time and were just okay. We liked it enough and are willing to give it another try... it'll just happen fewer times on our restaurant rotation.

Enzo's Pizza

Reviewed By babsorama6688 - Atlanta, Georgia

I saw a great rating for this restaurant and thought, WOW, this must be great pizza. So I went out of my way to have pizza mediocre at best, with crummy ambiance. I would not hesitate, if faced with an area pizza craving, to visit Pizza Hut next door. The best pizza in Tucker is a few miles away, at Uncle Maddio's. When I say that this place is "good" for lunch and dinner, I mean that they serve those meals. I think that's what the question means. This restaurant is not "good."

Coco Cabana

Reviewed By FoodFindTN - Knoxville, Tennessee

My family and I stopped in during a visit to the Atlanta area. I’ve had good Cuban food before so know what to expect. The Cuban sandwiches were average at best. The empanadas (especially filling) were okay but the oil very heavy and old tasting. Could also be that palm oil was used and I’m not a fan of it. The rice was good but not the best I’ve had. The black beans were flavorful and great. I also had the red snapper. Again, fried in the mystery oil so a little heavy and not fresh tasting. Also, for some reason the bottom of the pan was lined with pickles? Not so yummy when hot pickle juices soak into the fish. Sure, call me super picky but I do enjoy great food and know it when I have it. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this place but also think it has potential. A few changes to flavor profiles and preparations it could be a go to place.
