Tacos in Long Beach?

I go to lunch with my son once a week, and I've been trying to find a good cheapie taco place. We're around Lakewood and Del Amo.

Anything nearby worth eating? We've been getting our Mexican fixes from Super Mex and what I really want is a good taco truck.

  1. A bit far from Lakewood and Del Amo, but for the best taco truck style in Long Beach try the stand on 4th street just west of Redondo - Tacos la Mexicano? Always a line and it's fantastic.

    1. I have to agree with teaeye. Tacos las Mexicanos (4th and Coronado) has the best food. Small carne asada tacos with cilantro and onions beats Super Mex by miles. Also try their die for! I miss my Long Beach taco stand, HB has nothing in comparison.

      1. I think tacos la mexicano is just okay. Not the best Mexican food I've had.

        As for carne asada tacos, I prefer Rivera's Mexican Restaurant at 2901 E 7th St.

          Rivera's is AWESOME! One of my all-time favorites.

        2. King Taco will be opening a new Long Beach location in about 2 months. Try their al pastor which is usually very good and fresh. Avoid their carne asada which is average at best

          1. Not sure if it's too far out of the way, but El Gallo Giro on LB Bl. and PCH is where I go to get my fix.
