Best Taqueria

El Molino

Staff Pick

There are zillions of totally authentic taquerias all over Atlanta, thanks to our growing Mexican population. But we haven’t encountered anything quite like the taqueria inside this particular EL MOLINO, a chain of Mexican markets. It’s not just the enormous tortas (try the carnitas on weekends), savory tacos (try the al pastor) and perhaps the city’s best authentic posole (available weekends only). What keeps us coming back is Carlos the cook’s weekday preparations of two daily specials — home-style dishes like chicharrones en salsa verde — that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. The ambiance is zero and English is only haltingly spoken, but the specials are always displayed at the order window. Point and ask. Be patient.
