Look Inside El Felix’s Newest Location, Old-Timey Taco Truck and All

Opening Monday, Nov. 20 at The Battery Atlanta

Chef-owner Ford Fry’s new The El Felix outpost opens Monday, Nov. 20 at the Battery Atlanta, and its old-timey taco truck is just about ready.

The truck is a key part of the restaurant: Smith Hanes Studio built the garage-like space for the 1947 Raymond Lowey-inspired taco truck into the building’s design. So, the truck has a pretty sweet spot to call home when it’s offering on-the-go snacks like nachos, steak and chicken tacos al carbon, and hot tamales.

The truck — which incorporates graphic design elements from Atlanta-based Office of Brothers, Inc — is just one of The El Felix Battery Atlanta’s colorful accents. Longhorns decorate the walls, while booths are outfitted in a very retro shade of green.

When the doors open for lunch and dinner on Monday, expect to find Tex-Mex staples from the Alpharetta original and special menu items only available at this location.
