Bar Taco – Yankee Tacos on the Westside

The Bar Taco craze moved south a few months back and set up shop near Bocado on the west side of town. Mainly located in the Connecticut area, Bartaco is selling more of a lifestyle than just a style of food; think toes in the sand,  a drink in your hand and waves lapping at your feet.…

Red Pepper Taqueria – Tasty Tacos

The proliferation of taco joints in Atlanta over the past few years has been largely disappointing and devoid of much creativity or originality. Since branching out to Buckhead in the old La Forchette location, Red Pepper has received several accolades and recommendations from the media and my followers alike. Being the skeptic I am, I decided…

Awesome, albeit very small tamales

Tacos on the Run – El Taco Veloz

I continued my spring cheap taco roundup and made my way to El Taco Veloz just south of I-285 on Roswell Rd.; they have multiple locations, but this was the most convenient. WARNING – it looks really sketchy from the outside and their parking lot appears to have been bombed as there are 1-2 feet…

Salvation Taco

April Bloomfield opened Salvation Taco a little over a year ago in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan; it’s inside of the Pod 39 hotel but has its own entrance on E39th St. The name is a little misleading in that they have a lot more than tacos and only three taco options on the…

INC Roswell – South American Street Food

I have eaten at Inc several times and posted one of my first blogs on it almost two years ago…w/ pretty crappy pictures, so I wanted to do them justice by updating the post with some current info and better pictures from a few recent visits over the past few weeks. Inc is part of the…

Salsa selection...did I mention free...go screw yourself Chipotle!

Tacos Linda Vista

Nothing pleases me more than finding great food at a great price, and when it’s authentic Mexican…that’s just a bonus! Tacos Linda Vista opened a little over a month ago just north of historic Roswell, below Holcomb Bridge Rd, on a stretch of 120 that’s become known as little Mexico due to the amount of…

Great Mexican in Hell’s Kitchen – Tehuitzingo

Hell’s Kitchen is home to many great “hole in the wall” bars and restaurants and is a section of the city not often visited by your average tourist; many of these establishments can appear dirty or intimidating to the uneducated. Tehuitzingo definitely falls into this category…the sign is faded and dirty and it appears nothing…

El Rey Del Taco – Best Mexican in Town?

El Rey Del Taco (ERDT) is another Buford highway gem that was been cranking out authentic Mexican food for years; a stone’s throw inside I-285, they specialize in taqueria style fare that can please traditionalists and gringos alike. It probably makes since to start with the tacos, as this is their specialty and what most…

Mexican Purity – Tacos La Villa

Anyone looking for quality authentic Mexican fare outside of Buford Highway or Jonesboro can rejoice that Tacos La Villa (TLV) has filled the void. Located in a non descript Cobb Pkwy shopping center,  best known for a shady jewelry dealer with crappy radio commercials (sorry D. Geller), Tacos la Villa took over an old Quiznos…
