El TESORO will be our best effort to produce traditional taqueria food of Mexico, 'la comida de Mexico'. A small kitchen with many hands working daily to sear, roast, stew and steam delicious into every bite. Menu offerings will range from the 'classic items' everyone knows to regional and pre-hispanic flavors rarely seen in Atlanta.
Delicious coffee and espresso based drinks will also be a focus for El Tesoro. Crafted with fresh roasted beans from our partners at Counter Culture and professional baristas.
We hope you will explore the many flavors of Mexico with us, for years to come. Buen Provecho!
