Found: Good Tacos in Whittier!

AteTooMuch Jun 6, 2008 10:08 PM

A friend took me to this hole in the wall called Chenas Tacos on Whittier Blvd.

They have one item on the menu... tacos. There are carne asada, pollo, lingua, cabeza and a couple more I can't pronounce.

For $1.10, I thought we would be getting mini tacos, so I ordered five; 3 carne asada, 2 lingua.

They were really nice sized! I was satisfied with eating three, and force down the last two...couldn't let them go to waste.

There is limited seating and if you are in a rush, don't go...we were there around 1 pm and it took about twenty-five minutes to get our order done...

My friend told me there is alway a line there.

The only problem I have is the darn place is its in Whittier and I live in the valley...but I will definately go back...

Good eats!

    In Whittier, there is also the second location of Tacos Baja Ensenada, the premier fish taco in LA. The food is just as good as the original location in East LA. They took over an old Weinerschnitzel, as far as I can tell, so they've got a bit more seating than they do in the original. Great place.

      Just came from Tacos Baja... felt like I was eating fish tacos in Ensenada!
      Is it the same in the east LA place?

      Yummy Yummy!

              There are other excellent tacos to be had in Whittier as well, (as the hounds sniff out great food no matter where it may hide in the Southland):
