Bell Street Burritos - Buckhead

Tools

Bell Street Burritos - Downtown

Tools

Cuerna-Vaca Supermarket

Tools

Markets like Cuerna-Vaca Supermarket are a meeting place for Mexicans who want a taste of real home-cooked food minus the fluff. Egg dishes are available all day and the huevos rancheros will knock your socks off. Hulking platters of chicken enchiladas are served with mole (made with ubiquitous Dona Maria paste) or green salsa. The tender and crispy carnitas at the meat counter are prepared ahead of time so you can heat them at home for a lazy-night supper. This is one of those places that feels like Mexico, but you don't have to be a native to enjoy platter after platter of ridiculously enchanting Mexican soul food.
El Progreso

Tools

Technically El Progreso #14, this tiny Mexican grocery store is the home of some surprisingly good grub. The bodega's modest dining area located in the back of the space serves up some of the best and wallet-friendly tacos south of Buford Highway.
El Rey del Taco

Tools

There are three components that make a taco superb: the tortillas, the filling, and the salsa. El Rey de Taco gets them all right. Pat yourself on the back if you're lucky enough to catch one of the tortilla mavens making handmade tortillas that emanate the unmistakable smell of fresh masa. When it comes to tacos, the chivo (goat) and cabeza (beef cheeks) are standouts, and the salsas – although limited – are pure picante perfection. A chilled glass of horchata (a drink made with cinnamon, rice, milk, and other ingredients) is a refreshing addition to your meal.
El Señor Taco

Tools

This place is all about the fish. Seafood comes in enough variations to satisfy whatever craving you have. At less than $2 per taco, you'll be in, out and full of deliciousness in no time without spending a ton of cash.

Low-priced authentic Mexican food
El Taco Veloz - Doraville

Tools

If you're looking for baby-mild tacos or chichi surroundings, turn the car around and head right back to Midtown. El Taco Veloz serves up the real deal, albeit in dingy surroundings. A better beef-tongue taco would be nearly impossible to find, as would a creamier, more satisfying bean burrito. The barbacoa is extraordinary, whether rolled into a soft, steamed corn tortilla or packed into a flour one. Tacos are irresistible snacks whose $1.69 price tag makes sampling the whole lot easy. Eating one of the massive burritos feels a bit like making out with food, with habanero salsa providing a crowning, thrilling burn.

Elmyr

Tools

This Little Five hangout serves burritos, quesadillas, and other Mexican favorites, with a heaping side of atmosphere and character. It's also a prime drinking spot, with plenty of beer (appropriate to the hipster-leaning environs, Pabst Blue Ribbon is available by bottle, can and tap), margaritas and specialty concoctions. It's a great place to grab a bite and a buzz before or after a show at Variety Playhouse.
Elmyriachi

Tools

Kirkwood's Elmyriachi, sister restaurant to L5P burrito dive Elmyr, offers casual Tex-Mex cuisine such as build-your-own tacos (try the smoked brisket), avocado-jalapeño margaritas, and more. Don't miss Elmyriachi's spacious patio overlooking Hosea L. Williams Drive.
Holy Taco

Tools

Holy Taco is an incredibly cool neighborhood eatery that's going places with its food that even some of the most daring high-end chefs in town wouldn't dare.
Mi Barrio

Tools

Walking into this boxy restaurant is like being transported to Mexico in five seconds flat. Steamy, beef-filled gorditas and aromatic pork tacos blow away anything available from chain restaurants. While there are plenty of Tex-Mex favorites, there are Mexican favorites such as lengua (beef tongue) and posole to tempt the adventurous.
