OK, so where to go for tacos on Buford Hwy now?

I noted the other day that Taqueria Los Rayos is gone from its spot opposite PDK on Chamblee Tucker. I've been to one of the vendors in Plaza Fiesta a couple times now, but they don't really do tacos (more tortas, steam table, and plates).
I think I've been to the taqueria-formerly-known-and-still-signed-as-Los-Compadres since it changed hands maybe once. It's across from NE Plaza down toward N Druid Hills. Still decent.
So, if I wanted to get good tacos between Green's on the south end and Tower on the N end (just outside 285), where does a guy go for good tacos on Buford Highway these days?
El Rey de Taco would be my first pick.
Monterrey actually has some good tacos too, the pork and the chorizo are the better of the ones I have had there.
A friend told me Pollo Loco has some good chicken tacos but I have not tried.
Taqueria Los Rayos is now on Buford Hwy in the old Dairy Queen across from Pollo Loco.
I'll check out El Rey de Taco. Now that I think about it, I've seen the new Taqueria Los Rayos location but forgot about it.
I know I didn't like the Pollo Norteno at Buford and Chamblee Tucker, though that's been many years ago. Haven't tried Pollo Loco.
Where is Monterrey?
I miss the El Molino grocery on Cheshire Bridge- they had good food in the back. And I've tried the Acapulco Market up near Landmark Diner a couple of times. Good for tortas at least, but I'm a little gun shy since I got wickedly ill (for about a week) several days after the last time I ate there. That and one other meal were the only ones that I hadn't shared with the family in that timeframe.
