The Joints – El Taquito
Located south of downtown Newnan off I-85’s Exit 41 (Moreland), is El Taquito. You have to enter through the BP truck stop to get to where you order. But don’t worry, there’s plenty of seating.
Once there, a large billboard sign highlights the menu: nachos, taco salads, tortas, flautas, tacos, asada, quesadillas, fajitas and burritos. Meat options include steak, beef tongue, beef head, tripe, sausage, fried pork and other adventurous choices.
And you won’t find a fountain machine here. The Cokes are in 500 ml glass bottles, and there’s no twisting these off. Fortunately there’s a bottle opener nailed to the wall right next to the refrigerator. And it’s bottled in Mexico.
And that pretty much tells you this is about as real as it gets.
