 The restaurant prides itself on providing incredible service—guests become friends and are treated as such.

Tacos and Tequilas Mexican Grill has a true passion for food. The owners care about their employees and are always looking for ways to offer the best working place for the team so they can serve the food with love. The restaurant wants people to come and have a good time, enjoy the fresh food and leave with a thought that they will shortly come back.

Part of the culture is that the restaurant gives back to the local community that has helped it grow as a business. Employees are involved with several of the local schools and support many youth sports teams, churches and nonprofit organizations such as Children’s Health Care of Atlanta and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, among several others.
