Tacos La Villa
I love this place, it’s right by my place and I visit all the time! I’ve also been told by multiple Mexican transplants that Tacos La Villa is as authentic as it gets in Atlanta. They’re so good they don’t even have a website but you can check out Yelp reviews here.
“Tacos were excellent and the salsa bar was uniquely spicy. Definitely try the Mayo Death sauce! I had the five taco plate with pork, shrimp, steak, smoked chicken, and fried chicken (yes, fried chicken taco), and a micro beer.” – Scott J
