“Delightful burrito carne asada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

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!

“The best burritos ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

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.

“Great little taquerias in Atlanta area...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

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 ($1.50). Skip the flan, which they purchase from the outside and is just so-so,. There is limited seating and a drive-thru window. Great food at very reasonable prices with always friendly and helpful taff.

“Mexican on Roswell”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2008

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.

“Where do they get this awseome flavor?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2008

These tacos/burritos are so good, my wife and I actually get cravings and go out of our way to eat there!! American "mexican" food can't compare. The restaurants are usually dives, but who cares.
