I'm so glad I have full access to this jewel in my neighborhood. I was greeted by Russell(manager I think) who made me feel as though I was a celebrity when I walked in. He escorted me to the bar where Alex gave me a detailed history about where Bar Taco started (Connecticut) and he couldn't have been more nice. I was also greeted by Shawn, even though we never met it was if he knew me. I'm telling you, you won't find better service in midtown. Oh and btw, the food and drinks are great!
Ever bored with the same food? You must give your taste buds variety! Go with an empty stomach and be ready to be delighted! Arepas, empanadas, and side dishes. Each corn cake is stuffed with delicious meats and sauces. You will not go wrong with the choice you make... They are all delicious! There's another one in Decatur which I haven't tried, but I'm sure this Venezuelan little restaurant will be as good as the one at sweet auburn market. You won't be disssapointed!
La Fonda has become our Friday night hangout with great margaritas, plentiful chips & salsa and above average food. I won't say it's the best but it's definitely a step or two above many of the order-by-number joints. I also like that you have several options beyond the typical Mexcian dishes, like Cuban sandwiches and paella. There's enough variety that it never gets old. My only complaint is that their sodas are warm cans with a cup of ice.
