Great carnitas at Q Tortas in Placential

  • h

I used to go to this fast food look-alike in high school and returned last weekend to find that the carnitas tacos are just as good as I remembered! The meat is flavorful and not too fatty and comes in two corn tortillas with some pico de gallo for 95 cents a piece. Q Tortas is located at 220 S. Bradford in Placentia, a few block off the 57's Chapman exit.
