Taco Cantina

Chef Adolfo Gonzalez got his start as a dishwasher at Atlanta Fish Market at 15 years old. After working his way up to Sous Chef, Adolfo learned how to elevate simple ingredients into rich flavors. Now, he’s putting that to use in his restaurant, Taco Cantina in Old Fourth Ward, an off-shoot of their already successful (and delicious) Taco Cantina location in Smyrna. Check out the delicious tacos, tortas and other amazing dishes from Taco Cantina!
