Cuban Delights 

Months back, I saw a sign, on the side of truck, parked on the side of the road, as I was heading up 278 from Dallas saying “Cuban Food”.  My immediate thought was “where?”  Then, several months later I decided to  turn down the road and look for it and there it was, on the […]

The Stand – Phoenix, AZ

Coming into Arizona from the east coast during the 8 months or so when they’re on Pacific time, always makes eating a challenge.  By the time we landed, got a car and were on the road, it was both time for dinner (6:30 locally) and time for bed (9:30 at home).  I made the executive […]

Casa Grande – Austell, GA

For the last several months, I had noticed Casa Grande Bar and Grill in front of the theatre at the intersection of East-West Connector and Powder Springs Road.  It always seemed to be busy, but I figured it was just another Mexican restaurant.  On this Sunday afternoon, we decided to give it a try.  The […]

Sabor Inka – Norcross, GA

Armando’s Caribe – Duluth, GA

Bartaco – Atlanta, GA

El Taco Veloz – Sandy Springs, GA

Looking for a quick bite on Thursday as I headed around the top-end perimeter, I jumped off at Roswell Road, certain I’d find something.   And I did – local chain El Taco Veloz.  They have five locations in the metro area and one in Gainesville.  Just south of 285, this location is near the […]
