The foods and the service was AMAZING! Some of the images online don't belong to The Original El Taco as an FYI. These are actual dishes they serve. Staff was very helpful in assisting me with overcoming certain dietary restrictions. You won't regret your visit.


Great place to get something to eat! Very nice atmosphere and great staff! Really enjoyed it in the winter the outside setting just is great!


I can’t say enough about our waiter, Ryan. He was so attentive and took such good care of us pointing out special items on the menu and describing flavors. The food was exceptional and we are here again asking for Ryan to be our waiter! Oh, he remembered me too! Perfect dining experience. Thank you Ryan and Del Taco.


All of the Fifth Group restaurants are truly outstanding! El Taco is my favorite place in ATL for a good marg and one their taco boards 😍

Ate at the bar and the bartender was great. I ordered the steak taco, chorizo, and beans with rice. The chorizo taco was AMAZING, so was were the beans with rice. The steak taco was ok, would not order again. The steak was cooked perfectly but the taco lacked flavor. Overall definitely would go back.
