Taqueria El Rey Del Taco

One of the many kid-friendly restaurants on Buford Highway, Taqueria El Rey Del Taco is a local favorite for authentic Mexican food. The tacos are spot on, and add a seafood soup if you are feeling adventurous. Kids will love the straight forward combinations and fun décor, especially during the holidays.

Taqueria Del Sol

Taqueria del Sol has locations in Westside, Decatur, Chamblee, Cheshire Bridge and Athens. Parents love the Memphis taco and margarita, while kids chomp on chips and cheese, fried chicken tacos, and cheese enchiladas.

Bone Garden Cantina

Filled with colorful folk artwork inspired by Mexico’s Dia De Los Muertos holiday, the outrageous eye candy at this in-town spot entertains all ages. The menu is vast, and covers kid-pleasing dishes. Plus, the excellent desserts (almond flan and banana empanadas) are sweet rewards for good table manners.


This Tex-Mex restaurant can get crowded on the weekends and evenings, but the food is worth it. Locations include Alpharetta, Inman Park, Buckhead, West Midtown, Dunwoody and The Battery. Parents get the Paloma and Red Headed Stranger cocktails, and eat the pescado al carbon (blackened catfish) and El Lopez (cheese enchiladas, guacamole salad, beef taco, and chili con queso puff). Kids can pick fun items off the kids’ menu. For any Ex-Texans now living in Atlanta, you’ll love the Texas décor and atmosphere at this restaurant.

Red Pepper Taquería

Buckhead, Brookhaven, Decatur and Dunwoody are home to Red Pepper Taquería locations, where the kids’ menu comes with a paper luchador (wrestler) mask. The restaurant has a wide menu of fresh and mostly organic/local Tex-Mex fare. Outdoor patio seating and plenty of large screen TVs means there is always something to look at.

Verde Taqueria

Tacos are the main draw at Verde’s Brookhaven and Westside locations. With more than 12 filling choices and the ability to order just one taco instead of being locked into a trio, it’s a picky eater’s dream. The kids’ menu is basic but inexpensive, and you’ll find families with kids dining here every night of the week.
