    LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! Don't listen to the other rating. I saw that review and had to come defend one of my favorite restaurants! So consistent. The chefs know what they are doing. Salsa is amazing. Fajitas are excellent. Quesadillas are delicious. You won't be dissapointed.

    Good food , average prices but sub average service! Specially if you are sitting outside

    I had the carne asada plate with corn tortillas. It was absolutely delicious and enough for two people. The lettuce and sour cream blend well with the steak flavor. My mother got the burrito lunch special #4. She found it salty but had good flavor. The portion size is great for the price. The salsa is kind of spicy but not over the top. I had the pineapple puree drink. It was pretty good, kind of warm tho even with the ice. Would return. Next time would get extra sour cream and lettuce

    This place is really good for lunch, I haven't yet ate here for dinner yet but plan to eventually. Reason why it's good? If you call ahead, it's fast, the food is always fresh/well prepared and you get a lot for your money. I haven't yet spent more than 7-8 dollars for lunch and its a lot better than eating fast food. Yesterday I had a guacamole salad and a chicken enchilada, fue delicioso!

    The salad was fresh and had so much flavor, just what I was hoping for.

    The enchilada had plenty of sauce (just how I like it) and the chicken was cooked just right (not under or over cooked) and the tortilla was nice and soft.

    I had eaten at Cuernavaca's for several years but stopped after I was served a refrigerator cold taco salad for lunch and also dealt with very rude and slow service. However; we went the other night for a friends birthday and not only was the food excellent, but the service was awesome as well! I definitely plan to try them for lunch again as they are so close to my office. I'm so glad too because I have really missed their delicious salsa!!

    Great food and great service. If you're into trivia, they have it on Thursday nights. Prices are decent also.

    This was our first time at this restaurant. We tried it because of other positive Yelp reviews and after checking the health inspection reports. I had the Chimichanga platter, one chicken, one beef and my wife tried the Enchilada platter, 2 chicken and 1 beef. Our server suggested substituting grilled vegetables for the rice and beans which my wife opted for. She LOVED them! The food was outstanding and we enjoyed the pitcher of margarita too. We will definitely be back many more times!! This isn't GOOD Mexican food, this is GREAT Mexican food!!! Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

    My boyfriend and I go to Cuernavaca almost every week. (Sometimes two or three times). It's our absolute favorite place to go. The service is great, the staff is great, the food is amazing. We're both big Chimichanga fans so we've tried almost every place around us and this is by far the best one. We used to be right around the corner but now we're 30 minutes away and we still make the drive because it's that amazing. The staff is so attentive and friendly. I definitely recommend asking for Sine or Tania they're our favorites!

    Alberto is so Nice, Assertive, Hard Working, Genuine, Polite person working there . My husband and I come here an always ask for him. He doesn't skip a beat and he always makes us feel welcomed. The food is always great too. I love the enchiladas and their homemade salsa is delicious! I would recommend this restaurant , whether you want a quiet night with the hubby or a fun night of trivia with the friends it's a great place to enjoy fellowship in a family oriented atmosphere

  • *****

    This is the best place around for family and friends to enjoy a nice meal together. The staff and owner here are the best I have ever seen. You always go away full,happy and very satisfied. The food is great, and the friendliness of the entire place is great. We will be back again and again.

    We stumbled on this little place and enjoyed our very reasonably priced lunch. The best bits for me: the complementary warm chips and delicious salsa and the amazing sopapilla for dessert. The Mexican music in the background added to the quaint ambiance of this place.

  • *****

    I love love love Cuernavaca!! The food is amazing! The service is great! It's family owned and I love the entire family! Not to mention they have the very best salsa and chicken soup on the planet! Both which are a family recipe! It doesn't get any better than Cuernavaca!!

  • *****

    My office used them to cater an office lunch. We had a strict budget so we just ordered beef, chicken, chips and salsa. They were great to work with us as other places we called wouldn't let us pick and choose. Everyone raved over the food. The chicken was juicy and delicious. The ground beef was full of flavor too. The salsa was a big hit too, very fresh. I would definitely use them again and the owner was great to work with. For what we got and the price, it was more than we expected. Great Job!

  • *****

    I've been eating here for years, never had a bad meal and have never had bad service! The owners and staff treat you (and feed you) like you are apart of the family! Love it!!!!

  • *****

    I'm not very big on Mexican food but there's something about their enchiladas that's just magic. I've only been here twice, though, so I can't say too much except that their salsa is amazing, their food portions are just enough, and their service is great! The food always comes out quickly, which is very nice because I only have an hour for lunch. I would definitely recommend this place!

    This place is perfect for dates the chimichangas are amazing coupled with amazing service.

    Cuernavaca Grill is Great
    We are regular customers at Cuernavaca & have been since June of 2001. We are normally happy with the food & the service is usually superior to most places we have eaten, but in the rare event that something is not to our liking, they are more than happy to accomodate us & do whatever they need to do to make our dining experience perfect. The staff are always friendly, the food is made fresh & in today's economy, it is a great place to take your family on a tight budget & get a lot of food for not a lot of money.

    I love love love this place! They have the best salsa...EVER!! The food is delicious and the service is great!!! I go at least 1-2 per week! I'd go more if they were closer to home. Once you go...you'll never stop! Enjoy, I always do!!!

  • *****

    Their food is SOOOO good for being such a small restaurant. Their prices are really good, and the service is amazing. Not a place you would think is great by just driving by, but I'm glad I was invited to this place and went. Definitely will go again.

  • *****

    Two words: Armando's Special. While you can't really go wrong here, you HAVE to try Armando's Special at some point. Trust me on that one.

    You'll know you're in for a treat right from the start with the freshly made salsa. And it keeps getting better from there. Never disappointed. Always impressed!

  • *****

    Amazing salsa and good drinks. Definitely would recommend. Hidden gem in Lawrenceville.

  • *****

    This place is out of this world!!! Everything was top notch. Right when you get the chips and salsa you know by the taste you are in for a wonderful experience. Waiter service was great to the point of being overattentive. But the food starting with the cheese dip appetizer was just phenomenal.  2 of my coworkers had the Cuernavaca Fajitas and they were just floored by how good it all was. I had the fajita quesadillas that another yelp user raved about and they were better than I expected.

    If you love margeritas they are as good as it gets here. Im here on business but if you are out here anywhere within 25 miles come check it out its well worth it

    This place really surprised me!

    Hubby and I came here after hearing good things from a coworker of mine, and were very impressed. We came around 8:45ish to a completely empty restaurant. They were having some kind of trivia night on one side of the restaurant, but I peeked through the lattice wall that separated the booths and it looked empty too. But do NOT let that deter you. The chips were served hot, salsa was fresh and delicious, and service was excellent. We ordered the Cuernavaca Grill for 2. You get a steaming hot platter of chicken, beef and sausage as well as rice, beans, guac and tortillas. OH.MY.GOODNESS. The chicken was amazing!!! Hubby said it was mojo (?) sauce. Beef was cut and seasoned perfectly. I did not care for the sausage too much, I think it was the consistency that threw me off. Hubby loved it though. Rice and beans were good too, did not try the guac because I don't like avocado. I know, I know, who doesn't like avocado??? Me, that's who lol. Our bill was $20 plus tax. Not bad for the amount of food we got and the quality. We will definitely be back!

    My husband and I have been searching Gwinnett for some really good American Mexican food and this place had it! The Carne Asada was amazing, most places around here overcook it but it was just right. Salsa is fresh and delicious! Loved it!

  • *****

    Love this place! Always seated quickly, food is always great, kids menu is super affordable and yummy.

  • *****

    I have been eating at this place for at least 15 years. I absolutely love everything on their menu- except seafood, which I don't eat anyway. The chips and salsa, white cheese dip, fajitas... I could go on and on. I visit as often as possible.

  • *****

    If you like Mexican food, you'd be crazy not to try this place. The fajita quesadilla is the bomb, and great salsa too. Fabian makes some mean drinks. Andele andele arriba arriba!

  • *****

    This restaurant was a nice surprise.  We had an old standby Mexican restaurant close near our house so we decided to drive out of our way to try something new.  The portion sizes are enormous.  You get a ton of food for the price here.  Any of the dinner combinations are a hit and most are less than $10.  The shrimp fajitas were seasoned with a dry rub or something and had an excellent aroma.  The restaurant has lots of space on the inside and patio seating on the outside.  They have Keno and Lottery which makes me think it's also a trivia, poker, or other late night activity place.

    I have been coming to "Cuernavaca Grill" sense I was a baby! Quite literally my parents took me when I was in a stroller. I grew up coming to this Mexican Restaurant. Don't get me wrong i'v been to most if not all the Mexican Restaurants locally, and "Cuernavaca Grill" is the most authentic tasting and has the best atmosphere. Right when you want in you feel like: "This place has the family owned feeling." In which it does! This is no chain Restaurant it is family owned and family owned sense the beginning! I know the family personally. Which everyone would if you go there on a regular basis. The salsa is great, the actual dishes themselves are huge for the price that you pay for the (average around $10). There is a bar, for you drinkers out there and plenty of seating with tables and booths! A must eat place! When I want to go out and eat Mexican that's the only place I go!

    We love this place.  They treat us like family there.  We have been coming since we moved in 4 yrs ago and the neighbors recommended it.  Great Mexican food.  Also DH thinks the burger is great.

  • *****

    We have been here lots of times and have never been disappointed.  They had great drinks, salsa, chimichangas and they have KENO.   My husband loves to go here  to have a margarita and play Keno.

    Great place to unwind after a long day a work!!!!

    Excellent service and unexpectedly good food. Beyond prediction in every way given the location in the dog-leg of a shopping center.

    Really good Americanized-mexican, anything off the grill is great. Will also do more authentic mexican food if you ask, but really not their specialty.
