Twisted Taco

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Decatur. Their amazing menu has everything you could possibly want in American Mexican food from Southwestern Chicken Rolls to Classic Nachos to Taco Salad, but it’s all about their famous Twisted Tacos. My favorites are the Southern BBQ Fried Chicken Taco (fried chicken in BBQ sauce, southwestern coleslaw, and fried pickles), The Cuban (roasted pork, sweet plantains, black beans, cilantro, rice, and mojo sauce), Black & Bleu (grilled steak with bleu cheese crumbles, tomatoes, lettuce, balsamic vinaigrette, and red onions) and the Korean (beef bulgogi, mushrooms, sauteed red peppers, sugar snap peas, and topped with a spicy gochujang sauce and sesame seeds). They also feature some of the best margaritas I’ve ever had including the Pomegranate Margarita, Jimmy Buffet Margarita, Cucumber Margarita, Spice Mexican Margarita, and Urban Cowboy Margarita.

This is an excellent place to go after one of Decatur’s amazing festivals, like the Decatur Book Festival or the Decatur Beer Festival. With their huge, relaxing patio, it’s also a great place to go and hang out with friends or bring a first date to a casual atmosphere.

I can’t recommend Twisted Taco enough. If you’re looking for casual, but amazing Mexican food, there’s no better place than the Twisted Taco.
