DeVan, below is a response from El Taco's General Manager, Kit Lewis. He asked me to post it for him.

I was going through Google Places and noticed the review you posted on April 15th regarding your recent El Taco experience.  First, I would like to apologize for your negative experience.  We pride ourselves, not only on the quality of our food and beverages, but also amazing service.  We obviously fell short of these expectations on your visit.  Not only am I appalled that you had a gnat in your beverage, but the fact that your second drink also had a gnat makes me want to investigate this matter thoroughly.  Second, if you feel comfortable, could you please give me a phone number or contact where I can reach you?  I would like to get as much information as possible, to determine the cause of your experience.  You can reach me at klewis@fifthgroup.com; 404-873-4656 (restaurant); or 404-277-7471 (cell phone).  Thank you for feedback and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Great tips from +Fifth Group Restaurants! 
Everyone’s seen it before, the feeble attempts at using food to boost office morale: the doughnut drop in the office kitchen, the cookie cake for someone’s birthday, the “encouraged” happy hour. While these ideas aren’t bad in theory, in practice they are just pumping coworkers full of calories instead of conversation. Eating is one of the few things we all have to do every day, and if used correctly, it can be one of the most beneficial tools fo...
