cool hang out – I signed up on the Taco Stand's website to get a coupon for a free taco, and I never got it. I went to the Taco Stand anyway with my dad and just told my waitress what happened; I didn't really care if they gave us a free taco or not, but I was told that the place was under new management and the manager would be over right away. I told them not to worry about it: the tacos were only like $2!
The manager came over and he was so nice. He gave my father and me a $20 gift certificate for the next time we come in. How nice was that?!
The food was pretty good for being so cheap. I had a tofu taco with mushrooms and it was very, very delicious! My father and I shared the hot wings as an appetizer and the sauce options are mild, hot, and extra hot (or something to that effect). Thinking that "hot" was just medium, we ordered that. Bad idea! Those wings were SO SPICY. I used up five napkins for each wing to wipe the sauce off!! I like my wings medium... I'm no pansy, but I tell you, be cautious! I'm getting mild next time. I was sweating after the first bite!
GREAT manager, cheap, and fresh food!
UGA alums reminisce about the good ol' days over chips and queso with a bucket of beer. – The Scene
The original "T-Stand" in Athens is a Bulldog's temple, and its Atlanta offspring maintains the collegiate vibe. Tavern-style booths, a hearty bar, 11 television sets and good-natured fellowship fill a brown-toned interior that's boathouse-meets-sports bar. During the day, Buckhead office types and families line up at the counter for a quick, cheap lunch. After work, Georgia grads come to loosen the tie and toss back a beer or margarita over queso dip. The Stand's best feature is its spacious back patio that beckons on a nice afternoon.
The extra-cheesy Mexican fare works great as game day fuel or a late-night grease fix. The best bet is a taco, crunchy or soft. Choose between traditional and specialty tacos, such as barbeque, fried chicken and tilapia. Although basic, it packs the most flavor. The mission here is to fill and fill cheaply. A side note: Go for beans instead of rice.
Great Fish Taco's – I ate here on Saturday and then at a place down the street...the Taco Stand is so much better. The fish tacos were awesome...full of flavor and priced well.
GREAT food, fun, and atmosphere!! – I definitely recomend The Taco Stand to anyone who likes Mexican food, enjoys a great atmosphere, and wants to have fun! The servers are wonderful but the managers and bartenders are even better!! UGA football weekends are a Blast, too! Try it tonight!
great tacos!!! – Had the new tilapia and fried chicken taco and they were unbelievable! I am a conneisuerr of tacos in the ATL and these are the best.
Great additions – Have you tried the new tacos? Unbelievable!!! The new fish taco is the best I've ever had. I was a fan of the taco stand before but now I'm in love. Oh, I forgot. There is also a new burrito called the "Hershel". Sounded corny but Chipolte BBQ pork was an incredible addition. Thanks Taco Stand!
The Tiliapia Taco, The Fiesta Salad and the Southwest Taco are great – I have been going to the T-Stand for seven years off and on and yes, service in the past has been up and down and a bit lacking, but they have a new manager who was working the floor and making sure that their guests were happy. We were up there playing trivia and noticed everyone working hard and everyone looked happy. The Tilapia Taco is really good as all there specialty tacos. My mother-in-law really enjoyd the Fiesta Salad and the Southwest Taco, and with 420 and Blue Moon on tap, life is good. Nice, relaxing deck to enjoy watching anything on their flatscreens. We talked with the new manager before we left and said we noticed a difference and told him we would be back. We recommend you check it out again too since it is in a great location plus you have both food and full bar options.
Glory, Glory to Taco Stand – Favorite of ex-Athenians and Georgia grads, perfect for a night of cheap beer and a good crowd. Food's not as good as the original on Broad (or maybe I'm remembering my school days too fondly), but definitely a good way to spend an evening watching the Braves on the big screen or the Dawgs pound Florida.
flashback – Yes, it's good to remember the old college days of drinking beer and porch sitting, and Taco Stand is just the place to do it. The food is great, cheap and the service is friendly.
Make a Stand for Good Food – This Taco Stand attracts a bit of a yuppie crowd --it IS technically still in Buckhead -- but it's a far cry from the usual Buckhead tomfoolery. An easygoing main dining room, with a menu of options high on the far end wall, opens out into a roomy bar with a bit of a sports bar vibe. Tacos are indeed among the best items offered, but my companion on two recent occasions found no fault with the burritos and loved the chips with cheese dip. A good place for a different kind of "meat 'n' three"...a meaty taco (longer than your Bell variety) washed down with three quality well drinks from the bar.
