Installation (Wordpress Part): Steakhead's Atlanta Eats Blog: El Taco Veloz May Benefit From the New Prado

El Taco Veloz May Benefit From the New Prado

As the construction around the Prado will likely bring more of the same chain-type restaurants, visitors may want to venture just North of the new Sembler complex for lunch to the El Taco Veloz, an authentic Mexican taqueria. You will need to look past the exterior and the fact that its situated right next to a Love Shack adult store. Come to think of it, the inside won't win any Architectural Digest award either. But the fact that the Dora episode they were showing on the two TVs was in Spanish led me to believe I wouldn't be disappointed. And I wasn't. The food here will make you look past any burrito you have ever had at Moe's or Chipotle.

The menu is relatively simple- mainly tacos and burritos. There are carne asada versions of both, with the meat tender and full of flavor. Lady Steakhead had a chile relleno taco, which was also outstanding. She is a big fan of corn tortillas, which is how the tacos are served (you can request either). There is a salsa bar with some wonderful selections including a particularly spicy salsa verde. The pico served with the side order of chips is outstanding.

As I was leaving, I requested a to-go menu and was ecstatic to see they serve breakfast. I just love me some huevos rancheros! And breakfast places are what I have missed the most since move from Cabbagetown. May have to do that next weekend.

I love El Taco Veloz. I grew up in Sandy Springs, and have been eating there for at least 15 years now--my favorites there are the tortas and any of the breakfast items. Be careful though--that place can be rough on your asshole.

I turned some coworkers on to Taco Veloz located on Buford Highway and now several of them from the southside can't drive past 285 & Buford Hwy without stopping.

As a conessuire of steak burritos; this is by far my favorite.
