Blogger Reviews of Taqueria El Rey Del Taco

  • Spatial Drift on Oct 16, 2013

    Adam and I think that Taqueria El Rey Del Taco is a lot like your typical pay-a-little-get-a-lot mexican joint, but while the majority of those places sacrifice quality to achieve the price point, the quality of the food here is higher than that average. Despite having heard good things about it already, we were still pleasantly surprised.

  • MacajuelThis place stays open till 4 am so it's great for that quick midnight taco fix. I especially like the broad range of available taco fillings including goat, tongue and pig intestines.

  • EaterWhat's better than tacos for lunch or dinner? Tacos in the wee hours. Good thing El Rey Del Taco stays open until 5 or 6 a.m.

    55555 by Louis S

  • Hayley The food was good... otherwise this place is terrible. Service is horrible & mandatory 15% tip. Waitress dropped the food and ran. We had 1 set of silverware, never got refills, never asked how it was

    55555 by Alex R.

    55555 by Amy R


  • May CTacos like back in Mexico! Will definitely be back for them!! Also, flawless Torta Mexicana, Quesadillas, Burritos and Nachos. And oh my! They serve large goblets of potent Texas Margaritas

  • Creative Loafing AtlantaThe goat meat in the chivo taco is slow-cooked with chilies, tomatoes, and secret spices until it's fall-apart tender. Add a little cilantro, onion, and green salsa, and that hangover is gone.

    55555 by Creative Loafing Atlanta


  • Ellen SunGreat tacos with choice of handmade or regular tortillas. Fast and inexpensive!

    55555 by Ellen Sun


  • AJCThis traditional taqueria is open (nearly) 24 hours a day, so you can get your fix any time. Order the hand made tortillas (trust us), and select your filling. The lengua and al pastor are favorites.

    55555 by AJC


  • Juleen JThe Chorizo Huevos burrito - yummy. 😀

    55555 by Juleen J


  • Samuel G.I tried the fajitas de nachos on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Try it with beef. The meet is well flavored and tender.

    55555 by Samuel G.


  • Jennifer YoungelmanCame in late at night and there was only one other table and they were leaving. Ended up waiting about 20 mins before we asked about our drinks. We left. Terrible service!

    11111 by Jennifer Youngelman


  • Carmen S.Excellent late night meal. Four tacos was plenty. I highly recommend two al pastor tacos and two chorizo, all pleasantly charred. I didn't like the goat and found the asada to be a bit tough and dry.

    55555 by Carmen S.

  • Creative Loafing AtlantaThe carnita tacos on freshly made tortillas are some of the best in the city (top 100, in fact). Bite into the succulent hunks of slow-cooked pork with a hint of barbecue bite & judge for yourself.

    55555 by Creative Loafing Atlanta

    55555 by Sunny P.

    55555 by Billy K.
