Solid tacos

Not much to look at, but tacos are great. Good flavors great prices. Tortillas are a little weak but otherwise excellent bang for buck. And they're open late (Roswell).

This place has all the makings of a great little spot for tacos. Unfortunately I have one issue. The tortillas for the tacos were corn (which is good) but they were like steamed or something. All bloated and mealy and suckin up all the moisture in your mouth. You can't choke these things down without a lot of water/coke/whatever. My... More

On this place you will find the best steak burrito ever. My favorite is just meat+cheese. sometimes I ask for sour cream+avocado. Also the steak+egg+cheese breakfast burrito is really good. Any of my friends I take to this place, they get addicted. This is what people call a hole in the wall....This is a must on Buford Hwy.

As good as any taco stand I've been to. Clearly the best in Atlanta, whether for tacos, huevos rancheros and agua de horchata. They have three locations, maybe more, and all are equally good.

Don't let the looks fool you. Seems like a shack of sorts (Buford Hwy) location. Just enjoy beef tongue to chicken. If you like beef the barbacoa cannot be beat. Just add some beans, rice, cilantro, onions and green salsa. I skip the sour cream.

It's all about the food. Carne asada burrito is excellent. Beans and cheese good too. Order at the counter, no wait staff. Blue collar clientele. Offers take out too!

This restaurant has been around forever and never fail to amaze. I usually take them out but the burritos are the best anywhere...not sure what they do other than prepare them fresh. Can't go wrong with any of the beef, bean and cheese combinations.

El Taco Veloz )http://www.tacoveloz.com/) has six locations in the Atlanta area, all very small taquerias that have been around for many years. My favorite location is the original one on Buford Highway, very tiny, and in the same location for over 20 years. Lately they have had $1 taco specials, their burritors are wonderful, as are their chips and salsa... More

Holy Cow, it looks like it used to be an old Pizza Hut. drove past it for years not giving it a second thought. Once you try though its amazing!! Never had a bad thing there. 3 steak tacos will set you back about 6 bucks or a burrito to 5.
