We arrived at the lot 15 minutes early, and were the fourth car there. Three more arrived with the truck, and the line just kept getting longer. Loyalty says everything, and the food DELIVERS. Short rib spicy tacos, huge quesedillias of grilled kimchee and chicken, and Sriracha brownies. Bliss!

It is easy to see why these guys are always busy no mater where they park. The food is excellent and the price is reasonable. I love the quesadellas as the flavor is excellent and really hits the spot, the tacos themselves are good as well. They have several trucks so it is easy to find them just to there... More

This is by far my favorite food truck. (Holy Aioli is a close second, though). The short rib tacos or short rib burritos are the way to go.

Had to eat here while in LA. We went to the truck in West LA-Verde. The line was about 10 deep but went quickly. Had a burrito, and two orders of tacos. We enjoyed every bite!

Ate here today and I thought it was pretty good. It's Mexican/Korean, so really interesting food. I would definitely come back again!

The burrito wasn’t bad, the meat and guac tasted good. I wish my burrito kept its heat better, the ingredients kind of cooled it down.

Seriously - a Korean/Mexican food truck with outstanding food. Only in Southern California. During a recent trip to Long Beach, CA, the Kogi Taco Truck made a dinner visit to a conference I was a part of. About 45 of of us experienced an all you can eat feast. While we were presented with a limited menu (no calamari tacos... More

On a recent visit to So Cal we tracked down the famous Kogi Truck. After two rounds of ordering which included the Sliders, Short Rib tacos, Quesadillas, and the Kogi dog I have to say that while it was all good my vote for the best was the sliders no doubt (in fact I ordered them on both rounds). Yummy... More

I finally got a chance to eat off a Kogi truck in Orange County last week. I arrived expecting a long wait, but I was surprised to find that the line wasn't that long and service was quick and orderly. The short rib tacos and pacman burger I ordered were served promptly, so when I got 'em I was in... More
