    GIGO.
    FWIW, I grew up in Arlington a long time ago. Yes, there was Mexican food, but it was certainly not taco crazed. Rather, it was a burger basket crazed town. Now, I think it may be brisket crazed.

      People in LA don't need to do Internet searches for tacos because we already have our favorites.

        Plus they say LA has only 5% of their restaurants doing tacos!!! While Omaha (that's Nebraska for those who don't know); Omaha has 38% of their restaurants offering tacos???

        I don't theeeeenk so!

          That may very well be. I would imagine LA has significantly more restaurants per square mile than Omaha, so the percentages may be valid.

            Sorry, whatever...maybe SoCal is 5%, but I don't see Omaha having 38% offering tacos! My not unsophisticated
            auntie from the midwest called them Tackos!

            The thing with statistics is that you can manipulate them however way you want. For example, Irwindale has a population of 1,422. There are 65 eating establishments of various kinds there: a ratio of about 1 restaurant per 22 persons. But it doesn't mean that it's a food-lovers paradise.
