Sunday lunch we set off to go to pure taqueria, being a taco lover I was very excited. They have self parking behind the restaurant, and we went during off-peak hours so we were seated immediately. As I walked up to the entrance, I got a sudden urge to have a margarita (I think it was because of the five or six margarita signs they have outside--advertising success!). We sat down, got our chips and salsa and ordered our beverages. Chips andSalsa - A-MA-ZING, I'd say the salsa is one of the best that I have had in Atlanta. I think I had 2-3 bowls of it by myself. It tastes fresh and has a nice kick to it. Margarita - going in with high expectations (from rateclubs reviews and clever advertising), I was severely disappointed. The flavor was too tangy and too sweet. Yes, they are generous with the tequila. Perhaps this mix wasn't made well, but I wouldn't order it again. I prefer Taqueria del Sol's margaritas 100x over. A nice thing about this place is that they serve brunch until 4:00PM. For people like me who get up late, it is especially nice. Even then, I couldn't pass up an opportunity for some tacos so I ended up ordering the three beef tacos with charros beans. Brown salsa (sorry forgot name) - a smoky salsa...veryyyy delicious. Mix it with the normal salsa for a smoky kick I put on every bite. Beef Tacos - they were delicious, I got what I expected. Would definitely order again. Rice - normal Spanish rice, only had a few bites because they weren't too impressive Charros Beans - came in a small bowl, they were average I tried a bit of the steak and eggs that someone else ordered. Steak - The waitress told us that they tend to undercook their meat. The reality is they overcooked the meat. Nevertheless, the overall flavor of the steak was good and the portion was enormous. Eggs - done the way they were supposed to. Potatoes - extremely bland Overall - I would come back for the Salsa, not as much for the food.

Worst. Experience. Ever. If I could give 0 stars, I would. I came on a Thursday night. First of all, mandatory coat check ($4)--not cool. You literally have to walk past the coat check guards at the desk to get into the club. The place had a small crowd, but it was still so empty I could practically see the overloud music echoing on the empty dance floor/seats. I was ogled and stared at as if I'd walked onto the stage of a meat market, and it didn't get any better. I'm serious, I've been to a lot of clubs, but I've never been stared at some obviously and unwelcomingly. Downstairs seemed like a different world (hey, white people), but still weird setup. The bathroom had perfume and scents so thick I nearly choked. Nice bathroom attendant lady though. The kicker of the night--I hacked up my lungs for 6 days because I got smoke inhalation damage from the retarded smoke cloud they had pumped onto the dance floor. I was only there for 20 minutes, but it was more than enough. Like Sammy H. said, "Circle around the block for something else"--ANYTHING else.

This is truly where strippers go to die. I don't know where to begin. This place is SHADY yet mesmerizing all at the same time! The strippers are mostly old and not the type of women you want to see naked yet that is the appeal. Blondie, the signature "girl", is a black woman with blond hair who will crush a can of PBR between her breasts for the bargain price of ... whatever she feels like charging you. I got my "souvenir" for a mere $5. There was another woman there that actually abused herself on stage. I'm serious. She slaps and punches her boobs and below the belt (if ya know what I mean). All the beers come in cans and you can get a pair of PBRs for only $5. Not a bad deal at all. This place gets bumping late at night and is somewhat of a hotspot in Atlanta. You can typically find some decent looking girls here but they'll never be the girls on the stage. If you're on a mission to see some sweet young ladies bare it all, DO NOT GO HERE. If you're looking for a night you'll never forget, drop everything and head to the Clermont Lounge!
