They are some of the best Mexican Restaurants around and you can find the Cali items at the three listed places.

Guess I'm going to Buford HWY today. Really not good for that diet I was going to start two months ago.

Live close by and never hit/heard of those spots.

El Rey Del Taco on Buford near the Doraville MARTA station is a great one. Love those quesadillas.

This is very good advice. I went to a few Mexican restaurants on Buford Hwy with a friend who is from the Dominican Republic. The meals were great and the menus were in English and Spanish, but I'm not altogether sure i could have successfully placed an order/communicated with the waitresses on my own.

OH, HOW I miss San Diego!!! NOT that I don't love my ATL, but I sure did LOVE living in San Diego...

I miss Lolita's, I miss Roberto's, but MOST OF ALL, I miss Cotixans!!!
I know, I know... That was fast food. BUT I don't care what anybody says, It was !@#%$ good!!! Maybe not so good to my stomach, but I loved that place.

I wish they would open Cotixans out here in Atlanta...
If You guys find anything like "The Barrell" AKA Vaqueros please let me know!!!

We named it and I told him I'd post a note online so people will finally know where to get Carne Asada fries in ATL. I did go next door to buy my own shredded cheddar cheese because all he had was the shredded white cheese. I have a pic as proof...it's the real deal SD carne asada fries. Promise.
We need you to post that picture. lol

I bet if there was an Albertos, Robertos, Filibertos, etc that opened out here they would make so much business!

YESS!!! for the California Burrito. I am glad I am not the only one who is in search for such a place that can make it like I am use to.
