Best Tacos Los Angeles

Classic Hit

El Cholo

Native Knowledge: Our favorite drink to pair with tacos? A Corona Extra. Or if you are in the mood for something a bit sweeter, our go-to is the Coconut Margarita.

Worth the Wait

Tito’s Tacos

Native Knowledge: Get the Tito’s Taco with cheese…maybe even extra cheese. It’s only $3.50, which means there’s no shame in getting two, or three, or four. We won’t judge.

This is How We Roll

Leo’s Taco Truck

Native Knowledge: The Al Pastor tacos are a fan favorite, and they are delicately carved off of a flaming spit in front of you and then topped with a juicy pineapple slice for the perfect  combination. *Starts drooling*

Madre Knows Best

Tacos Tu Madre

Native Knowledge: Although popular for their delicious tacos, what keeps locals coming back are the red velvet churros served with a cream cheese filling. YUM.

El Chato Taco Truck

Native Knowledge: El Chato brings the heat on its tacos but provides special-made Horchata to make the spice more bearable, and for $1 refills it keeps the guests coming back for more.
