Mexican food is always a winner in our book and if it were up to us, we could eat it all the time. Tex-Mex and Mexican fusion spots are super good, but sometimes you just have to go for the real deal and get some authentic bites. Nothing gets more real than this hidden Mexican restaurant in Atlanta with massive, genuine delicacies that will have you coming back for more.

Taqueria Oaxaqueña de la Guelaguetza is a small joint attached to a Chevron in Tucker serving up some rare (and huge) Mexican eats. The Mexican-born owners are whipping up authentic savory goodness, that you can usually only find thousands of miles away, right in your own backyard. 

The tiny hidden spot is best known for its hard-to-find tlayudas, also known as Mexican pizza. This rarity is most commonly found almost 2,000 miles away in Oaxaca, Mexico so we are #blessed to have them right around the corner from home.

These tlayudas are a cross between a flatbread and a tortilla and the stacked single-serving entrée is bigger than your head.

The gigantic tortilla crust is loaded with eight layers of mashed pinto beans, smoky meat (chorizo, steak, chicken or pork), lettuce, tomatoes, jalapeños, avocado, radish, and a rich and creamy blend of queso fresco and quesillo for only $10.50.

You'll definitely want to come back to try the mouth-watering, authentic flautas, burritos, tamales and sopes. All of the entrees are served for less than $10.

I think we all can agree that hidden holes in the wall always have the BEST, most authentic food ever (Dave's Cheesesteaks started out attached to a gas station, too). So, take it from us and take your tastebuds on a trip to Mexico.

If you are a Mexican food junkie like the rest of us, satisfy those spicy cravings with this brand new taco stand inspired by the streets of Mexico or this late night taco spot with over 20 insane tacos.
