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?


Guacamole from The Original El Taco.


Start your Original El Taco meal off right with fresh avocado, cilantro, Serrano and onions!

Mexican Pizza from The Original El Taco.

Mexican Pizza

It’s not based on anything you can get from fast food, but a classic Oaxacan dish. A crispy hand made tortilla, brushed with black beans, and topped with tons of veggies and meat.

Queso from The Original El Taco.


The Mexican restaurant classic – they keep it simple here with cheese and heavy cream. Throw in some ground beef for added flavor!

Fried Chicken Taco from The Original El Taco.

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.
