If you’re searching for the perfect taco to try in the City of Atlanta, look no further. ‘Good Morning America’ set out to find the best taco in the city as a part of their “United States of Taco” series. After a fierce competition with Hankook Taqueria’s Korean fried chicken taco, Slapping Taco ATL roast beef birria taco came out on top. Chastity Roman, owner of Slapping Tacos ATL, then went on to NYC to compete against the other city-winners for the number one taco in America.
Guest judges of the Atlanta section of the competition included Kandi Burruss, a TV personality and Grammy Award-winning producer and restauranteur, Todd Tucker, a producer and restauranteur, and Alison Mastrangelo, a WSB-TV sports anchor.
According to Good Morning America, Burruss said, fittingly of the name, that the “sauce is slapping!” for the Slapping Tacos beef birria taco, and Tucker called them “very flavorful” with cheese that’s “really good.” Mastrangelo summed it up perfectly, calling the roast beef birria tacos “a homerun.” Slapping Tacos won with a two-thirds majority vote, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.
