Great authentic Mexican food for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks at very reasonable prices. They have a wide variety of dishes and soft drinks. Try the pescado a la plancha and an horchata drink. The dining area may lack a Mexican ambience, but the food makes up for that. I have eaten there twice and look forward to going back to sample more of their dishes.

My burrito exploded during the first bite and grease oozed all over. Poor food quality.

We are originally from Southern California but have lived in Georgia almost 20 years now For years we have been driving from Athens just to eat at Taco Veloz (seriously) because it is the only place that serves the delicious Mexican fast food we grew up with in California...especially like the classic taco wagons that we use to frequent. Some of the staff will speak English but you will probably be the only customer that does....almost exclusively Mexican clientele. Should tell you something!!!

this final attempt at survival in this run down building that has played host to at least 5 previous other failed fast food joints is hanging on by a thread now. it stays open late for some reason, but nothing they have could lure me back for another meal. reheated greasy mexican is unappealing especially in this one. located as they are in a bad part of town it's dangerous making the turn into the parking lot but not nearly as dangerous as eating here.
