Bad break-up? Another year single? Bitter cuz you don't have a sitter? We've all been there. If you’re dreading the arrival of February 14th this year, you’re in luck.

El Taco is here to make you feel better by throwing one heck of an ANTI-Valentine’s Day party in your honor!

We’ll have shots of Jilted Juice (pineapple-infused tequila) for $4 each and the Rebound-a-Rita (blood orange skinny margarita) for $6 each or $25 for a pitcher.

Bring your single friends for our “Misery Loves Company” dinner special. It serves 3-5 people and includes:

Your choice of:
> Classic Tastes Trio (salsa, guacamole, queso blanco), Trio Royale (salsa, guacamole, queso royale) or Veggie Mexican Pizza
> 10 tacos of your choice
> Your choice of two desserts

This whole shebang is only $60 (plus tax and gratuity), and you can add a pitcher of our Rebound-a-Ritas for $20 more. That’s a savings of $5!

Are you the only one of your friends still single? Come celebrate Stupid Cupid with us, and who knows, you might just meet that special someone! For reservations for groups of 7 or more, call 404.873.4656 today.

My hubby and I tried it for the first time this afternoon. A friend Lonnie gave me a glowing review before I traveled that far. Glad we did! Pleasant surprise. The chips have a little something extra extra that makes them very fresh and tasty. The Queso did hit the spot and the fried chicken taco with corn was amazing. Very tender and juicy fried chicken and fresh soft taco. O enjoyed the stark with fried crispy onions and I am in LOVE! Had a fun waiter with red hair that new his stuff! He also had an adorable 2 year old he'd headed son....so cute. We will be back for sure, we won't wait too long, these are the kind of tacos that you end of thinking about for days and HAVE to back for more! RECOMMEND!!!!!

Was a pretty good place. Nice atmosphere around it, seemed like a 'College Town' in a sense. The food was awesome and the servers I've dealt with up until now have all been pretty nice. Highly recommend the Fried Fish Tacos out there...were phenomenal. As for the chicken tacos....meh, didn't really take for them too much. But hey, maybe I'm just not partial to their chicken. Go ahead and try them for yourself. I was partial to the fish.

loud, but fun atmosphere with good vibe. great place to meet friends for a margarita and a bite to eat. we ordered 'gold' ritas and they were delicious. the food was good to average. we shared various dishes and some were better than others. not a gourmet place, but economical and fun, so we'll go back.

Best Taco's in Atlanta! I've been visiting this restaurant for 3 years now and always had a great experience. The 'El Short Stack' with pork is a must try entree! There can be a wait on Friday and Saturdays but be patient... it's worth it!

Mouth-watering tacos that give Nava some competition. Fun salsa bar. Top shelf margaritas. Ambient lighting. Parking could be better (tight parking lot).
