Lawrenceville, GA 30044
There are 3 locations that I know of in Gwinnett. I still can’t understand how this part of town is Lawrenceville! 🙂
The one we like going to (Don Pedro III) stays open forever. On one day, the hours are like 6am to midnight, which is madness!!
Some folks only go to Don Pedro for the tacos, which are an insanely affordable $1.59 each last time I looked. I’m old enough to remember when Taco Bell was actually pretty decent and cheap. Way back then a kid could survive off of their soft tacos. These days, Taco Bell and the rest of corporate fast food isn’t really serving you anything decent.
Don Pedro though has tacos that most “sheltered” young’uns might be too afraid to eat. That’s fine, more for us. The types on the menu are: Asada (Steak), Pollo (Chicken), Al Pastor (Spicy Pork), Lengua (Tongue), Cabeza (Spicy Beef), and Barbacoa (BBQ Beef)
My favorite however is numero uno on the picture menu. I like to get the Carne Asada dinner platter but with no ensalada but mas arroz y frijoles por favor. 🙂 (Hopefully my horrible limited espanol isn’t embarrassing every time I order!) The grilled big green onion is amazing and sometimes the grilled jalapeno borders on psychedelic spicy.
The nachos are pretty good and a meal in itself too! It comes in Chicken or Beef, and they’re never stingy with the sour cream, cheese, or guacamole unlike some places…
This past spring the original Don Pedro was looking quite nice with all the blossoms! 🙂
