Little Rey is a fast-casual, counter service taco haunt from the restaurateur who brought us Superica and Marcel. Expect this Piedmont Heights venue to have a line of people out the door, but don't be dissuaded. This operation moves with the efficiency of a PreCheck line overseen by the city’s most hostile TSA worker. Within 10 minutes or less, your order will be at your table while you’re still sampling sauce combos at the self-service salsa bar (just get the avocado crema and sit down, fren). The tacos are solid, the elote is top-notch, and the environment is suitable for everyone from an adult kickball team saluting a 2-12 season over margaritas to newborn parents who don’t have the bandwidth to cook nor sit down for a meal over 20 minutes.
