Going to El Rey Del Taco is a bit of a trek if you aren’t already up near Buford Highway, but their tacos are worth the added effort. There are handmade corn tortillas, homemade salsas, and 12 taco fillings to choose from. Stick to the standards like carnitas, al pastor, and carne asada or, if the late-night hours find you wanting to try something new, we suggest the lengua, cabeza, or tripe.
