Smoked Chicken Taco at The Original El Taco


I eat lots of tacos, from Buford Highway’s authentic taquerias to intown hotspots. But there is one taco that I crave above all others, one taco that displays the perfect balance of heat, smoke, and crunch. Its complexity of flavors and textures earns the smoked chicken taco at The Original El Taco my vote as the best taco in Atlanta!

What makes this taco so special? The house-smoked chicken topped with fried jalapeno slices, guacamole, cilantro, and a drizzle of crema. I always request corn tortillas for authentic south-of-the-border flavor. The Rosarita, a margarita made with fresh grapefruit, is the perfect refreshment to wash them down.
