Taco Mama works out of a true "scratch" kitchen where all food is prepared daily using fresh, whole foods. The Barbacoa is smoked in-house for 6 hours daily. Ahi tuna is AAA sushi grade, sliced to order. Steak tacos, burritos, and quesadillas are made using fresh, sliced to order tenderloin. Grilled chicken is whole sliced breast, all white meat. Even the hand shaken margaritas are made with real, freshly squeezed or muddled juices like watermelon, blood orange, or cucumber.
The Athens location of Taco Mama is Georgia's first.
Taco Mama founder Will Haver said,
“We are really excited about bringing our taqueria that is about people, delicious food, hand shaken margaritas and good times to Athens. We’ve been huge fans of the Athens scene for a long time - you’ll hear many Athens-originated/influenced music in our restaurants, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to find ourselves in a culture center that has been so influential in music history. Mix in the music of the area with some great margaritas - that’s what we are all about. Our mission at Taco Mama is to ‘love on people’ -- that is to say to provide our guests with an exceptional dining experience that's fun and a place where people can enjoy great food and company. We believe that Athens is a perfect fit for Taco Mama's fun-loving culture."
