This legendary LA taco stand (est. 1959) boasts long lines of locals seeking fresh shredded beef and atomic-orange cheddar concoctions of deliciousness at all hours of the day, but don't be intimidated. Waiting in line (20-25 minutes from arrival to departure at peak times) is part of the experience and seating is available both inside and out. The blended salsa carries a refreshing kick and chips and guacamole go perfectly with your main dish. Tacos are the star but the other traditional dishes such as the beef or chicken tamales in mole sauce or the vegetarian tostada are excellent. Be aware before you go that beverages are limited to soda (Pepsi products) and water.
