Our hats go way off to whoever invented tacos because they are Earth's most fantastic creation. There are so many amazing ways to eat them and lucky for us, turn-of-the-century Mexican bites fill the streets of Atlanta. This brand new taco joint near Atlanta just opened today and it will fill your stomach with authentic Mexican street-inspired tacos for days.
Tocayo is a brand new taco joint that just opened in the also new Halcyon, a modern 135-acre mixed-use village in Forsyth County with over 50 acres of green space. The space intertwines a massive mix of shopping, dining and leisure experiences with new to-die-for restaurants.
Tocayo is a tiny food stall that serves amazingly authentic tacos inspired by the streets of Tulum, Mexico, giving off major chill and bohemian vibes.
The street food-style taco bar is meant to provide you with fresh and mouth-watering Mexican eats to enjoy in the open air space of Halcyon. You can also enjoy them in the five bar-stool style seats at the front of the stand that will make you feel like you're at a tiki taco hut on a beach in Mexico.
Tocayo will offer savory tacos loaded with chicken, steak, fish, al pastor and veggie options like mushroom. They will also serve rice and beans and authentic street corn and plantains. Save room for dessert because you can get your hands on sweet treats including dark chocolate Mexican polenta and dulce de leche.
You can wash down this whirlwind of genuine Mexican flavor with some booze, too. They offer two bottled beers and two rotating draft beer options. Also next up at the Halcyon is a new Butcher & Brew location if you want to take your booze-drinking to the next level, but that opening has yet to be confirmed.
We assume that since you read this, you are on the hunt for the hottest taco spots in ATL. In that case, you have to try this new late-night restaurant with over 20 types tacos or satisfy your sweet tooth with ice cream tacos at this dessert shop.
