Athens cheap eats: The Taco Stand

The Taco Stand serves a tasty cheese dip. The dip is mild, but with a faint taste of peppers. It is served with standard restaurant-style tortilla chips and a side order of salsa.

The ground beef and cheese nachos are average as far as taste, but you'll be blown away by the generous serving. 

The restaurant's namesake is nothing to brag about because the tacos are much too salty.

On a positive note, The Taco Stand is dirt cheap. It's not hard to understand why the restaurant has three locations in the small college town of Athens. The menu is filled with value meals, which is probably satisfying to UGA students.

Of the advertised value meals, none of them is over $8. Most meals include a taco or burrito or quesadilla served with rice, beans, and/or chips.
