Do not photograph the burritos

Posted By on Thu, Dec 27, 2007 at 5:07 PM


Man, I'm tired of people in Mexican restaurants screaming, "No pictures!" at me. Do they think I'm an immigration detective?

Above is the only pic I could take at El Taco Veloz. As soon as the shutter clicked, the yelling started.

This is not the original restaurant on Buford Highway, but is located at 3245 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road. That's the part of Chamblee-Dunwoody that is west of Buford Highway. The area is like a town in Mexico, and we were the only gringos in sight.

Unlike the original Taco Veloz, this one has an inside dining room, and the menu seems to be a bit more comprehensive.

My favorite remains the chile relleno burrito. There's nothing else like it in the city.

After dinner we walked across the parking lot to Martha's Bakery (Pandería Martha), where I scored a slice of tres leches cake layered with strawberries. There are zillions of pastries on display here in wood cases, too.
