Great, cheap tacos – finally!

  • 8

I’ve been to many taco places (Yuca’s, Tito’s) in my life, and though I’ve tasted some pretty amazing tacos, I’ve yet to find a mind-blowing one. Well, my search is over, and you’ll never believe where I found it.

They are perfect: Two small corn tortillas, a scoop of succulent, marinated carnitas, a sprinkling of fresh white onion and cilantro, and hot sauce on the side. The chicken variety is just as appealing; the meat just melts in your mouth and the flavor is, for lack of a better word, AWESOME. They’re quite small, like real tacos should be.

The place? Del Taco on San Fernando Road in Glendale. Those Tacos del Carbon are fantastic! Go ahead, flame on, but I love those little ditties.

    1. Although Del Taco's del Carbon tacos aren't bad, I think you're kidding, right? How can anyone compare Del Taco's fast food chain restaurant tacos with places like Yuca's. Sorry, not a big fan of Tito's Tacos. I don't get what's the big deal with ground beef hardshell tacos. I can get such tacos at Taco Bell for 79 cents and not wait ridiculous lines to get them. Maybe that's an exageration but I'm not that far off.

      You need to try the taco's and the tostada Ceviche's @ La Estrella on Fair Oaks and Villa in Pasadena. Now that's authentic and delicious!

      1. No I am not kidding! Del Taco's tacos are delicious.
        La Estrella's food is substandard mexican fare.

          Now I know you're trolling and looking for bait.

        2. I'm with Joe...Yuca's is definitely the best taco I've had in LA. Del Taco? While I think it beats Taco Bell, any place that serves a side of fries with a taco is probably not the best place for Mexican...
