Highlight 119: Not the original but definitely "the taco" of the month - Restaurant: The Original El Taco

Once I got over the awkward name that says the original "the taco," I loved everything about the place. The cheerful and laid back atmosphere was exactly what we needed to counter the depressing state of the economy. Cannot resist the calling of the pork belly on the menu I was delighted receive such a big gorgeously charred piece in my soft tortilla. Caramelized and sticky, it was perfection in such a simply way. The fried chicken taco benefited tremendously from the mayo and lime flavored Mexican corn. I had always loved this stuff from the former Sala and was not disappointed to see the tradition continued in the same space. In fact, I even got a nice side of it for extra effect. At three dollars and change for a taco, this was more expensive than Buford highway, but for the proximity and jolly surroundings, I was happy to surrender to the single digit price inflation.
