The Original El Taco

Tacos, and margaritas, and queso…oh my! From the guys behind Fifth Group Restaurants, we get a taste of Mexico in The Virginia Highlands. Unique tacos like fried chicken with corn, and a ridiculously tasty Mexican Pizza are devoured by the masses in the shadow of The Wheel. What exactly is The Wheel?


Fried Chicken Taco

A little taste of the South, a little taste of Mexico, The Original El Taco’s Fried Chicken Taco has been a customer favorite since the beginning. They start with a homemade flour tortilla, then a piece of tender fried chicken and top it with a mixture of fresh corn, chili mayo, Cotija cheese and cilantro.

The Wheel

One of the first things you’ll notice when you walk into The Original El Taco is that they hand each person a token with a number on it. Then you’ll see the giant wheel hanging behind the bar. Move a little closer and you’ll realize that there are prizes on that wheel…’Free Taco’, ‘Dessert’, ‘Free Pitcher of Margaritas’ ?!?! Every hour they spin that wheel and someone comes away with a tasty prize. What will you win?!
