After scientists revealed that UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Taco Rancho in Forest Park. Chef Jose Rego translates nearly two decades of international kitchen experience into a hefty menu of delectable breakfast and lunch bites. Tap the unlimited salsa bar for an eclectic sauce-fest ($0.75) before digging into a range of authentically stuffed burritos ($6.75), quesadillas ($4.25–6.75), and tacos ($2.25). Cachete tacos are infused with tender, slow-braised beef cheek, while the pescado variety arm lightly fried tilapia strips against too-aggressive tongues with jalapeño tartar sauce and jalapeño coleslaw. Eggs, omelets, and breakfast-style burritos and sandwiches fill morning foodies with fuel so that they can aptly transition into afternoon hippopotami hypnotists.
- On a recent visit, the fruity guajillo chili salsa and smooth, garlicky guacamole salsa were standouts. The red salsa made with ground peanuts made an appealing topping for the succulent, red sauce-stewed goat taco. – Bob Townsend, accessAtlanta
- All were great, but the fish and beef cheek amazing. – Kristina Z., Yelp
