Taco Thursday off to a tasty start

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. - A recent survey by 'The Daily Meal' ranked the 50 Best Tacos in America.  And it just so happens that according to them, two of the top 50 tacos in America are served right here in metro Atlanta.

So what used to be known as 'Breakfast With Buck', and then evolved into 'BBQ With Buck', has now reinvented itself yet again...I'm proud to introduce you to 'Taco Thursday...With Buck'.  And the first stop on this Taco Tour of Atlanta is Taqueria El Rey Del Taco on Buford highway in Doraville...home of the world famous Cabeza Taco (ranked #36 in the USA). 

So what is a Cabeza Taco you ask?  If you look up the word cabeza, it means head in Spanish.  But if you take a close look at the menu at El Rey Del Taco it is described as cow cheek.  Really?  Well of course, I had to give it a try, and I was pleasantly surprised.  In fact, I ate two of them.  The meat is very tender, and if you can get past the fact that you are eating cow cheek, I bet you will like it as well.

For more information on Taqueria El Rey Del Taco, check out their website at http://www.taqueriaelreydeltaco.com/index.html.
