Great food

Great food, quick, and relatively inexpensive, whether you're looking for a breakfast burrito or an evening meal! Great.

Had a layover and to my surprise, found this taco truck as an option for some eats. Tried the Kim Chi breakfast quesadillas; however, I wanted to try the short rib tacos, but they weren't available for breakfast. I really like Kim Chi, but this didn't suit me well as they were a bit oily. I hear great things about... More

This review is specifically for the LAX airport Kogi BBQ truck - it is located in Terminal 4 of the airport. If you have a boarding pass, but for a different terminal, ask nicely and the TSA will probably let you through. I was flying out of the international terminal and I explained that I really wanted to eat in... More

This was more of a fun concept and my husband loved his tacos. It was a bit messy but really yummy and it was quick and there was a lot of variety

It's really hard to describe the flavors other than to say they are AMAZING. I saw the truck inside LAX terminal 2 and almost fainted. I wasn't even hungry after my flight but made room to enjoy these things.

We had heard good things and were not disappointed. I had a quesadilla and a taco, both were delicious. Would definitely frequent this place more if I lived in the area.

Our friends kept telling us to try this place, so we finally took the chance and did. This is a food truck that moves daily, so make sure you check the location online. To our luck it had a bike festival next to it, so it was a bit busy and took us 30 mins to get food. I would... More

Needed a quick lunch while waiting for a flight at LAX and saw this cool looking food truck sitting inside the terminal (around terminal 42-43). Could not believe the prices for an airport - very reasonable. I got the Kogi sliders -- 2 nice sized Korean BBQ slicers generously topped with lettuce and their sauce for just $7.00 (had just...

The truck looks amazing, prices are quite good but I expected more. Their tacos were moderate in taste and it's definitely not a good idea to order them if you want to stay clean- not easy to be eaten. There are probably better places where you may spend your money. On the other hand, we didn't wait too long and... More

Was at LAX for couple of hours in between connections and had no choice but to have breakfast n lunch at airport. It's a sticker shock when one has a meal at the airport. Sandwiches were averaging $10, a bottle of water $3.50 and even a small bag of chips was ~ $4. Luckily for my lunch, I found Kogi's... More
