Few things in this world are better than the delights of authentic Mexican food.

This week's Best of Atlanta poll found out what your favorite Mexican restaurants are. 

Coming in first place, Nuevo Laredo Cantina on the Westside has been an Atlanta favorite since 1992. We highly recommend the chicken mole or lobster tacos. 

The secret's out, and El Trompo Mexican Taqueria in Alpharetta is one hot tamale. They give second place an authentic spin you won't soon forget. 

Taqueria Los Hermanos is the culinary concept of six brothers with an appetite for excellent food in a family atmosphere. The taqueria, which has a Lawrenceville location, got your third spot as best Mexican restaurant serving up only the best since 2000.

If an authentic Mexican food experience is what you crave, then check out our other official nominees: La Carreta Hispanic Grocery and Taqueria (Cobb), Bone Garden Cantina (Westside), Mezcalito's Cantina (DeKalb), Mi Barrio (Intown),  Superica (Intown), El Rey Del Taco (DeKalb) and bartaco (Intown).
