Best Tacos in Los Angeles

  1. Tacos Tacuba (Obviously.)

Now, let’s talk birria tacos – tender, slow-cooked meat enveloped in warm tortillas, bursting with rich flavors and spices that dance on your palate. Each bite is a journey to the heart of Mexico City, where street vendors craft culinary masterpieces that captivate the senses.

And guess what? We’ve got not one, but two locations in LA, ensuring that taco enthusiasts across the city can experience the deliciousness of Tacos Tacuba without going far. So, whether you’re craving classic tripas, mouthwatering carne asada, or indulgent birria, Tacos Tacuba is where Mexico City meets LA, one delicious taco at a time!

  1. Tacos La Rueda


In LA, Sonoran-style taquerías are a rare breed, but the select few that grace our streets make a big splash in the taco scene. Among them stands Tacos La Rueda, a Bellflower gem. Their thin flour tortillas hold a delicious medley of sliced cabbage, onion, and cilantro that adds a satisfying crunch, while the salsa roja delivers a spicy punch that’s quick but memorable. And let’s not forget the mesmerizing aroma of mesquite charcoal, infusing every bite like a potent air freshener. Tacos La Rueda brings the taste of Sonora straight to LA’s taco aficionados!

  1. Perro 110


When you’re handed one of Perro 110’s “perros” or “tacos perrónes,” brace yourself for a mouthful. These culinary behemoths are the brainchild of Luis and Pablo Galvan, two brothers bred in the neighborhood, with a helping hand from their mother’s expert flour tortilla crafting skills. What’s their secret sauce? Pablo’s weekly pilgrimage to Tijuana, returning to LA with a whopping 250 tortillas each time. Now, that’s dedication!

  1. Tacos Los Cholos


This much-loved Orange County taqueria has spread its wings to Huntington Park, bringing mouthwatering mesquite-grilled meats tantalizingly close to much of Los Angeles. With doors open until midnight most days (and 1am on Fridays and Saturdays), Tacos Los Cholos is your go-to for top-tier street eats on tortillas. Their self-serve topping station boasts creamy chipotle mayo, crisp cucumbers, and a variety of salsas, from mild to heart-pounding.

  1. Cielito Lindo


Maybe they’re not your regular tacos but they are the OG tacos in LA. They single-handedly sparked the taco craze across America, and they are very tasty! Cielito Lindo offers deep-fried beef taquitos, drenched in a creamy avocado salsa bursting with bold beefy flavors and enriched with avocado goodness. Since 1934, this spot marks the beginning and end of the taco tale north of the Rio Grande. Every bite is basically a bite into “natural taco history” (if that even exists).
