No. 78 La Vaca Loca Taco at Good 2 Go Tacos
There are too many extraordinary tacos at Good 2 Go from which to choose, but the La Vaca Loca makes a strong case for itself. Velvety tender slices of flank steak are laid atop a bed of corn fried rice, the corn adding hints of sweetness to the savory beef and rice. If you happen to visit on a La Vaca Loca-less day, fear not.
With a revolving daily menu, it's impossible to not want to try every single taco brainchild from chefs and owners Jeana Johnson and Colleen O'Hare. How about the chorizo and mashers Hangover Helper after a night of responsible binge-drinking? Or if unadulterated sin is your thing (as it is ours), hopefully you'll visit on a day the Hotlanta is being served. Juicy pieces of waffle battered fried chicken, sweet potato, and spinach are topped with honey butter and wrapped up in a warm tortilla. And if meat isn't your thing, Good 2 Go serves up a variety of vegetarian options including the Vegan Heathen, a taco substituting chorizo with Soyrizo. So rewarding are these tacos that the long lines and "service is over when food is gone" policy are well-worth it.
