Wow, I have a lot to say about this restaurant. The neighborhood that you find the restaurant in is definitely not the best, and inside, the restaurant is not good either. This place, is literally a hole in the wall. How I would describe it is by using the word "grub". El Atacor #11 (don't get confused with the other El Atacors) doesn't smell the best either, and it's freezing inside. There are several game machines and an oldjukebox that plays Mexican music. They have the claw game and also some random arcade game. My cousins and I borrowed two quarters from our parents and put them into the claw machine, hoping to win something. Sadly, nothing happened. Angrily my cousins and I pressed the coin return button and out popped our two quarters... and two more. That's pretty good don't you think? We put in 50 cents and we got $1.00 back! Anyways, I'm not posting this just to talk about how sucky the decor is, (haha get it? El Atacor...decor) the food is what I'm here to talk about. The absolute BEST item you can get there (in my opinion) is the POTATO TACOES!!!! REMEMBER THAT!!!! It is soooooo (x100000000000) good. The potatoes and tacos are fried together till they are so crispy and delicious. They have an amazing type of "pico de gallo" that is a lot spicier but it is so delicious! If you are around the area you MUST go just for the potato tacos. Plus it is super cheap. Ten potato tacos are only $7.00. Can you believe it? It's so good! It comes with a guacamole dressing and sour cream drizzled on top. Uggghhh it's so delicious. Hopefully you get to taste the taco before changing your mind from the look of this hole in the wall.
El Atacor #11 have your standard burritos and stuff like that too. The burritos are humongous though, so you have to share it with someone or have a big appetite.
You don't go to El Atacor #11 for the burritos though... I mean you could but...the potato tacos are just so good. I guess I'm sounding pretty repetitive now plus I keep on gulping, so I'm going to move on. :)

Have fun! Maybe you'll be lucky and get twice as much money as you put in the game machines like me!
It's kind of creepy in the restaurant too... It's okay if you take your potato tacos and run..maybe eat in the car.
AGHHH!!! The drawings I make are coming out so small! As soon as I fix the problem I will edit the blog.
