Tacos por Favor!!

I finally tried it after reading about it here and driving by it for years. My husband and I each ordered a chorizo and cheese taco, a carnitas taco, and an al pastor taco. The carnitas and al pastor had great flavor but the meat on both was dry. The chorizo and cheese taco was @#($&%)#(! amazing . . . I can't stop thinking about it. Although I'd be happy just ordering chorizo and cheese tacos I'm wondering what else I should try. By the way, Owen Wilson and Kate Hudson were ordering as we were leaving.

  1. TPF is, to me, a great neighborhood place but not a drive across town destination.

    If you live in or near Samo, it's cool. If you drive over from Pasadena, you'll be wondering what the fuss is all about.

    I happen to live, work and play in and around Samo. So, I go there quite a bit.

    1. i love tacos por favor but it really is only because its so close! i love love there chicken soup as well as the pozole.

        Never had their chicken soup, will have to give it a try. Is it as great as Monte Alban's chicken soup though?

        1. some other blogger happened to be shooting a photo of her mozza meal, and there in the background, is wilson and hudson. anyway, i love their chorizo/cheese taco. it's so juicy!

          1. I think the chorizo and cheese tacos, are all that you should get. Most everything else I've had there has been subpar to slightly above average. Although I hear they have a good breakfast burrito - haven't had it though.

              As with any place, your mileage may vary, but I have to disagree with your take.

              There are places I like better -- I've already noted that it's a neighborhood place that I only go to when I'm in the neighborhood -- but the food hear is definitely above average in my opinion.

              I've never even ordered the chorizo and cheese tacos.

              I did eat a breakfast burrito there the other day and liked it just fine.
