What makes Tito's so good

Tito's are the best tacos on Los Angeles. I live 30 miles away but it dosn't stop me from waiting in line for there great food. I wish there was one closer to my house.

  1. It's the line... by the time you get to the front and actually get your food, you're so hungry you don't care what it tastes like.

    (I don't like Tito's tacos. They're greasy and salty instead of being flavourful.)

      Almost every time this comes up it seems that hardly anyone acknowledges that the tacos are actually the worst thing on the menu (except maybe the guacamole water... but the dry meat thing in the tacos is really that bad). To pile on titos about the tacos is just beating a straw man... even if the OP seems to like them.

      Despite the name, titos tacos is for chips and salsa, beef and cheese burritos, and especially the enchilada... which must be near the top of LA's greatest creations. None of these things has to resemble anything actually existing in mexico to be good. Yellow cheese has its place.

        theonceler,

        Your post actually makes me want to go back to try Tito's again. The tacos and guac water were exactly the two things that turned me off about the place, and that's all I ordered (of course, you'd expect with a name like "Tito's TACOS" that their namesake would be up to par......

          Bingo above to both Mr. Taster, and streetgourmetla.

          I think you have solved the Tito's debate once and for all. If you didn't grow up with it, leave it be I guess.

          (Still sporting that capped tooth that I cracked years ago at Tito's).

        2. tender beef wrapped in a tortilla and deep fried topped with cheese... mmmmm... what was the original question?

          1. Best salsa in town. And braised beef is awesome. So greasy and salty but I love it. I just can't do it more than one a month.
