Taqueria La Oaxaquena in Jonesboro. Worth the drive. I want to go back with a few people and try a bunch of things, including another tlayuda, for which they are known. Yes, it’s even better than a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza. And the white corn tortillas used for the tacos are some of the smoothest, best I’ve ever tried. No wonder this place has been a Mexican food destination before blogs were even a thing.
The day before I also visited El Norteno on Buford Highway. They specialize in slow cooked and grilled chicken. Tacos are serviceable, but I’d prefer the chicken. It’s fall apart tender and a little smokey and it’s super affordable – a quarter chicken with rice and beans is $5.99. A half chicken is a couple bucks more. The chips were actually nice.
Do you see how vivid I made the colors with Instagram? That’s true social media talent.
And here it is in boring old actual colors.
The slice of tomato really put this dish over the top.
