So, it seems like I am always craving Mexican food. And last night was no different. Unfortunately, it was Sunday which meant that Nuevo Laredo and Taqueria del Sol were both closed. So, my boyfriend (AJ) and I decided to venture down Buford Highway to find an authentic Mexican restaurant.
Lucky for us, we found the perfect place. After getting some advice from Jason Perlow’s blog (Off the Broiler) that we found off Google, we made our trek to Chamblee. El Rey Del Taco is a 24 hour Mexican diner that serves all things Mexican from tacos and tortas (sandwiches) to steaks and seafood.
AJ and I decided to stay with the tacos and tortas. The tacos come in two sizes, regular and mini, which are perfect for trying. We started with a cheese dip, then moved on to steak, pork and Chorizo tacos filled with onions and cilantro and also tried the Milanesa torta stuffed with lettuce, tomatoe, avocado, cheese and jalapenos. It was awesome. Our dishes came with a side of a green sauce which was extremely hot but good, a smoky red sauce and limes. This was perfect for me because I love condiments and all things spicy.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Mexican food. It’s a little bit of a drive but totally worth it.
El Rey Del Taco – 5288 Buford Highway NE, Atlanta, GA 30340, (770) 986-0032
