Love this place! Nice neighborhood feel, very kid friendly - they were thinking of giving parents a break when they developed their plan. But they also a good mix of patrons. The service was a little on the slow side due to the incredible business they were enjoying. I bet they get that straightened out pretty quickly.

A regular beef taco uses a sauce that is far too close to bad ketchup and school lunchroom beef. The cheese quesadilla is a tortilla, cheese, and a side of more of the bad ketchup sauce. The $3+ specialty tacos aren't bad, but I can't find a single reason to eat here instead of Tin Lizzy's, Taqueria Del Sol (same price point, same fancy tacos, same parking problems, much better food), or even somewhere like El Azteca (cheaper, better food, but no fancy tacos). Seems to be much better for drinking that eating. Avoid it for lunch, and have a fish taco and drinks if you're playing trivia.

Nice tacos, fast and friendly service. The only draw back is having to look at all of the old 80's UGA fraternity pictures while eating. Plenty of TVs to distract help with this though.

I lived in Athens for about 2 1/2 years and one of my favorite places to drink and study (simultaneously) was the Taco Stand. So, if you're new to Atlanta and want a taste of "home," this is the same Taco Stand taste you know and love. The atmosphere is a bit different, of course, being in Buckhead ... but still worth a visit!
