This place is kind of a hole in the wall but don't judge it. The shrimp tacos were to die for. AND if you like lemonade you MUST try their hibiscus version. You can taste the cane sugar and the mix of flavors is perfect and refreshing. It was like a drug it was so good.

We drove by a few times and decided to try this place for lunch on a Saturday. Very laid back and friendly staff. I ordered the grilled shrimp tacos and my partner ordered a steak taco and a pork taco. Both come with the usual fixings but the sauces that send it to another level! Sky came out when I... More

I've had chicken and turkey taco's here and shrimp is my FAVORITE! They USE to use TWO tortillas on the taco and have scaled back to one which makes it EVEN better. Their taco shells are dipped and seasoned. It's truly a great taste. The taco's are VERY filling. The guacamole and chips is a MUST! FRESH chips too! The... More

This review is specific to the carnitas tacos I just consumed, along with the green sauce. I know LA has some amazing taco places, and I've only eaten at a handful I must say that this place has the best tacos in the city HANDS DOWN. Flavorful yet messy and so worth the wait in line! Be advised it's a... More

I eat vegan or vegetarian three times a week, my friend took me to Sky's and I was a skeptic at first but after having a this delicious potato and chicken burrito, not your typical burrito it was awesome, and I tried the vegan taco a few days later. I am now a fan, the lemonade was a bit too... More

One day I happened to be on Pico Blvd when the aroma of shrimp & garlic wafted through the air and tickled my olfactory senses. I felt like the cartoons that I watched as a child, a delicious smell in the air which I wanted to float to and find....so I followed my nose and it led me to this... More

I've been going to Sky's for the last couple of years and am absolutely in love with their chicken tacos! I won't lie though... every once in a while you'll get a really dry batch of meat, or just some really unappetizing (inedible...) cuts. The vast majority of the time, though, the food is ridiculously good! The staff is so... More

I repeatedly heard that Sky's Taco had the best tacos in town, so I was excited to give them a try. I ordered a steak taco and a carnitas taco, and we shared chips and guac at the table. The steak taco had a spice in it that I just plain didn't like, so that ruined that taco for me.... More
