Not only is Elmyr an Atlanta staple, but it has the Best Burrito in the Universe. Great food, great music, amazing staff. I would definitely recommend checking it out.

I know that all of the reviews are saying to food here is delicious, but I really wasn't impressed. The burritos are large and attractive. But they are mostly flavorless and soggy. I got a black bean and rice burrito and it wasn't very warm and it was almost completely devoid of flavor. Even though I was hungry I couldn't convince myself to eat my half of the burrito.

The staff was a little apathetic, but overall okay. Not worth a second visit.

Pros: Cool artwork

Cons: Not-so-great food

I've been twice so far, and was very happy with the burrito specials I got. They were huge and stuffed with potatoes and beans. There was a fair beer selection and a bar. They carry Sweetwater 420 and Sierra Nevada Rye, as well as the PBR most customers seemed to order. It was a little small but I didn't have trouble finding a table.
Most customers were hipsters or punks, and the slimy guys at the bar were pretty gross and rude.

Pretty much my favorite restaurant in Atlanta & cause it's so cheap I can afford to come back frequently. The food & drinks are consistently great. The only drawback is that it can be really crowded before a show at the Variety Playhouse (next door).

Pros: Great food, great, strong drinks, killer juke box, good srvc

Cons: sometimes too crowded...

.

First off, let's just admit here and now that the food is on the, oh, pretty delicious side. You can't go wrong with a quesadilla, burrito, or massive soft taco. Seriously well flavored and stuffed with filling. I wish the chips were better, though. They usually taste like they came straight from a Tostitos bag--very dry and overly salty.

My beef with El Myr is the service. They once told me that all the waitstaff waits on all the tables as a collective effort, which in theory seems like you'd recieve incredible service. How wrong. Inevitably, it takes forever to get your order, refills, silverware, etc. We usually have to grab menus ourselves then hope that someone stumbles by the table to drop off the cheese dip before it's congealed too badly.

Pros: Good burritos/tacos/quesadillas, interesting clientele, gnarly neighborhood

Cons: Waitstaff ignores customers, chips are funky, no non-smoking areas

I must say, El Myr does it right. Why go to a chain restaurant when you can go to El Myr and end up with a burrito that not only tastes better than those other guys, but can also count as two meals because of its monstrous size? Their food is very well-priced and I simply love the low-key, bar atmosphere. The patio offers additional seating, so it usually isn't an issue, unless you try and trek over there on a Friday or Saturday night. One last comment: if you plan on eating there and you know there is a show at the Variety Playhouse, either get there really early or you'll be hard-pressed to find any seating.

Pros: burritos, food in general, beer prices, music

Cons: smoke, crowded at night

Eating an El Myr taco, burrito, or quesadilla is treating your mouth to a very reasonably priced party. The vegetarian options are outstanding- the Green and the Black Olive, Corn, and Potato burritos are tasty and huge and quite filling. Any item involving the fish or the chicken is also worth a try if you partake of the meat. I'm sick of people complaining about the "surly" wait staff. Most of those folks have been working there since the turn of the century, and the regulars love them.
Check the Variety Playhouse (concert venue next door) show schedule before you go- El Myr is always packed if a reasonably well-known band is in town and the parking will be scarce.

Pros: Addictive food, good tequila selection, excellent juke box

Cons: Can get crowded, loud, and smokey

I had not been to El Myr in a long time, so I was surprised that it is now a completely smoking restaurant. Normally, I would have left immediately, but we were meeting friends. The restaurant has delicious guacamole, hot salsa, and good cheese dip. We ordered a pitcher of Texas margaritas (with Cuervo tequila added) for only $21. Good, strong margaritas. We had to leave when one of our friends showed up with her child--children are not permitted due to the all-smoking policy. If part of the restaurant was non-smoking, I would definitely be back. But, I will never go there again.

Cons: All Smoking

not only the "spirit" of Atlanta, but also the counterpart to San Francisco's famous bike-messenger metal bar! but only Elmyr can claim native sons Mastodon among its dedicated fans...

I love el myr. The food is consistently awesome (i ALWAYS get the fish tacos...they're irresistable). You HAVE to try the cheese dip if it's "in season". The service is a little slack, but friendly. It doesn't bother me though. It's an excuse to sit there and chill. Just don't plan on dining in if you're in a hurry. Another bonus - they have Woodchuck Pear Cider on tap.

If you're lucky---really, really lucky---you can catch the Virgin Mary here leaning over the bar, negotiating a succulent green burrito and washing it down with a margarita. But she will not have necessarily come for the food---which is modestly delicious and cheap---but for the atmosphere. The drink. The juke box. And the crowd, which El Myr has justly inherited from the ghosts of Atlanta's recent past: the Stein Club, the Point, Tortillas. My heart may be in Dixie, but my @ss is at El Myr.

The steak tacos here are the best. A little overpriced on the tequila though, but still worth a stop. I visit often.

Lounge is the word for this psychadelic burrito joint with Van Gogh paintings on the brick walls. Burritos are natural - not too greasy - making El Myr a good fit for the hippy, organic, intellectual scene. Great, strong margueritas.

Ok, it's not quite heaven in a tortilla, but there's something about El Myr that separates it from other intown burrito joints. The screened-in porch offers a divine spot to chow down on a burrito--you can't go wrong with one of El Myr's choices OR by making one of your own--and chill with your friends. The service is slack in a friendly way, nothing to get upset about. I like coming here before catching a show at the Variety Playhouse.
