Salsa Taqueria: Our new favorite gas station tacos
Next time you go fill up your car, don’t settle for the hours-old taquitos spinning next to hot dogs in the convenience store. Get a crispy taco or tostada made to order, often served on tortillas made in-house.
Salsa Taqueria: This Mexican halal restaurant on Buford Highway shares space with a gas station convenience store and delivers dishes both delicious and gorgeous.
Get this first: The birria taco — arguably the counter-service restaurant’s most popular option — or the shrimp platillos.
$$$: Prices start around $2.50 for the tacos and around $11 for the packed-out platillos.
Next time: We’re getting a grilled chicken torta and a giant side of the green salsa. And maybe a veggie burger for kicks.
Find them: 3799 Buford Highway NE, Atlanta, GA 30329, 404-957-8038.
Your mission: Scout out — and then send us photos of — the beloved El Serranito in Woodstock; Taqueria Morelos in Marietta (technically located next door to a gas station); and Nachos Taqueria in Kennesaw, among the many, many other stellar spots in metro Atlanta.
