This place was listed as one of the best taco spots in Atlanta. It did not disappoint. It’s small and you walk to the back to order, then wait for your order. It was fast and fresh. I had the Barbacoa tacos. Fabulous!!

Very small authentic Mexican restaurant. Service is a tad slow at time but I think its because it is always so swamped. Well worth the wait! The Chorizo Cheese Fries are a bad addiction. LOVE the Spicy Chicken tacos. Highly recommend.

Everything at El Trompo is super fresh and super sized and delicious! This is not your traditional Mexican chain restaurant. It's family owned and operated and I can say truthfully, being from Texas, the best Mexican food bar none! Be sure to stop in and...More
