Tito's Tacos -- What up with this place?

what's the deal with Tito's Tacos? what is the thing to order there and how can one avoid the lines? i see people lining up 20 minutes before they open (we go to markie d's for bitchin' good cheesesteaks).

  1. they are known for their grease laden tacos. not quite sure what the hype is about though. are their tacos decent, sure they are; but are they fantastic.....not even close.

    1. Think of Tito's as a rite of passage and later a memory refreshed. 40 years ago, when I was in high school in WLA, we would stop by there on the way to or from the beach, or whenever we wanted a cheap meal. Every few years I go back, with or without my post-college children, to sample a taste of my youth.

      And yes, by my present standards of a good taco, they would get no consideration.

      1. Plain and simple, comfort food...

        --Dommy!

        1. Taco Bell with nostalgia.

          1. Dommy is probably right -- comfort food. I went there TWICE. Again because I thought perhaps I had missed something or arrived on a bad day. No. The food was the same.
