Atlanta Brunch: Lake Burrito

Monday, June 8, 2015

Update: This shop has rebranded since I originally published this post. Now, they're Lake Burrito in Cumming, GA.

"Good Food and a warm kitchen are what make a house a home."  --Rachael Ray

Ok.  I'm prone to drive to the outskirts of the metro area about half the time for a great plate, but a girl should know her city, right--even the burbs parts?

So, I love this place.  I wish I'd brought a better camera to take photos for you! I borrowed these photos from their Facebook page.  :)

Taquiera Mestizo is run by a local Cumming family, headed by two sisters. Every time I've been there, their faces have been the first I've seen.  They always remember my guy, who is a regular, when he comes in.  Follow them on Facebook for more.  If you happen to visit the restroom during your visit (of course, I only visitied the ladies room),  you'll see the walls graffitted with affirmations of women in Spanish.  A man in a bright yellow hat hosts the dining room and is affectionately known as Mr. Happy.

The food is set up in assembly-line style, and during the evenings, you can go grab a meal in the style of Chipotle.  It's fresh and homemade, the portions are generous, the service could not be better, and it's a locally owned shop.

I was shocked to learn that Taquiera Mestizo did a weekend brunch.  If you love breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, or pancakes (surprisingly, a really popular choice), you owe it to yourself to make the drive up to Cumming and give this place a try.

If you like the "mom and pop" places that make real food and feel like family when you walk in, this
place will become a regular stop for you.  I love it!  See ya there.

P.S. I'm writing this post completely on my own with no form of compensation.

Love.  Huevos Rancheros.  Mucho.
