The Match: Mexico vs. Camaroon
Where We’re Eating: El Rey Del Taco
This Buford highway taqueria serves up authentic Mexican food to the masses at all hours. Be sure to order lengua tacos on homemade tortillas. Or, if you’re really hungry, a torta stuffed with chorizo and egg. Bonus: they have televisions and margaritas. But make sure you’re wearing green, the color of the national team.
The Match: Spain vs. Netherlands
Where We’re Eating: Barcelona Wine Bar
Ok, this isn’t a traditional Spanish restaurant. They are very proud of serving a lot of local fare. But, with tapas, and a wine list as long as a football pitch, you’ll be in the spirit in no time!
The Match: Chile vs. Australia
Where We’re Eating: Australian Bakery Cafe
Ever wanted to try a kangaroo burger? Well, this Marietta cafe can make your dreams come true! If you’re not quite up to that, they have a wide selection of Australian fare including fish & chips, meat pies and sausage rolls. They even have Vegamite for sale!
