Marietta Taco Face-Off: Where Do You Go for a Taco?

There are dozens of places to get tacos in Marietta, but which ones are worth the trip? Show your favorite place to get a taco some love!

What makes a good taco? What restaurants in Marietta answer that question with a satisfying dish?

Speak out and tell us what makes a taco worth buying and where your favorite place to get tacos in Marietta is!

Taqueria Tsunami, , Pappasito's Cantina, , , , , , —the list of places serving up tacos is a long one, and I've only tried a few. Here are a few of the places I've checked out:

 has a selection of Latin-Asian tacos, sides, salads, quesadillas, Tsunami bowls and more. It's not what most people think of when you say taco, but I love Taqueria Tsunami. The Asada Zing Taco is my favorite—perfect Bulgogi (Korean) marinated steak topped with shitake mushrooms, fresh lettuce and a subtle, yet very pleasing, soy-sesame vinaigrette. The one thing that must be said about this dish is juicy, juicy, juicy. My second favorite taco at Taqueria is the Pacific Rim Taco, which is grilled chili crusted Mahi topped with lettuce, pico de gallo and hoisin lime aioli. 

With a Tsunami Trio Taco, you can order any two tacos and a side for $8.

: Chicken, steak, pork, tofu and veggie burritos and tacos; quesadillas, including cheese, chicken steak and veggies; nachos; salads; and breakfast items fill out the menu. The prices are average and the servings are fair.

The Grilled Chicken Burrito comes with fresh chicken breast with rice, pinto or black beans, and your choice of pico de gall, cheese, sour cream, sauteed mushrooms, corn or grilled onions and peppers. The burritos here are packed full of ingredients and tightly wrapped in a soft flour tortilla, preventing more of the burrito's insides from ending up on the floor than in your mouth. The creamy, fresh and somewhat thin guacamole is a very satisfying addition to any order. 

: A more traditional Mexican restaurant. The prices are a little higher than some of the surrounding Mexican restaurants, and the food tastes about the same. I've heard great things about Los Reyes, but my experience here has always been average, good but not great. Tell us what you think of Los Reyes in the comments.

, the fast food chain of the taco world. When it comes to fast food, Taco Bell is high on my list of where to stop; but when it comes to looking for a good taco, Taco Bell is further down. The prices are great, but you get what you pay for here. Sometimes cold and often unmelted cheese, Taco Bell fulfills the general taste requirements for taco dishes.

 Everything is freshly prepared–no bottled salsa here. The pico de gallo and guacamole are made hourly and are delicious,  said . The tacos are presented like a piece of art and are really good. All the sides come in double portions, and you are probably going to need a take-out box. Tell us what you think of Chepes Mexican Grill in the comments below.

If i'm craving a taco I wouldn't go to Taco Bell unless I wanted fast food. Taco Bell is probably my favorite fast food restaurant though. I like Zaxby's too. As for Mexican it's Hollie Guacamole

You get what you pay for. It's fast food and fast food is fast food. I like Taco Bell but my favorite tacos come from Parrilla.
