One of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Atlanta is Casi Cielo. A traditional menu with contemporary twist, the seasonal specials are always the star of the menu at this beloved addition to Sandy Springs’ culinary scene.
Atlantans go for the cocktails and stay for the vibes at Muchacho. Expect top-notch tacos, but you have to try one of their side dishes like the Queso or Spicy Fries!
