i know they are so not authentic... but i LOVE crunchy tacos... anyone have local non-taco-bell tips?
In the Silverlake area, I recommend Rick's. I posted about it in this thread (not the most articulate post to come out of my mouth, but the hardshell beef tacos are good!):
I also like the ground beef tacos from Malo, on Sunset in Silverlake.
I also love the hardshell tacos from Tia Juana, on Olympic, near Bundy, in West LA.
I beg to differ. The hardshell beef tacos from Rick's in Silverlake kick Tito's in the a$$.
I've eaten at Tito's a couple of times, recently (like 1 month ago and 4-5 months ago), and while Tito's is consistant, it isn't really great. It's good, I'll give you that, but Tito's is not great. If I never ate another one, I would not die. In fact, I'd probably never notice. Tito's is *good* for what they do, but there is certainly better.
I do NOT want to spawn a turf war, as I know there are people that love Tito's, and I respect that. But there are better hard shell tacos out there, I promise you!
