The wife managed to track this guy down via Twitter. Using Twitter, we were directed to a quiet part town with a few tables and chairs on the side of a park. The setting is simple, but what do you expect from a glorified hot-dog...More

Ricky's Fish Tacos is one of the more popular trucks around LA and we were glad we made the trip. The food was very good, the service was quick despite a long line, and the location was close to our next stop at Griffith Observatory.

I suppose they are the best fish tacos in LA, but when three of them cost $10, the taste in my mouth felt the same with 4 $1 fish tacos on Wednesday from Tacos Baja Ensenada. This places gets rave reviews, but to me, its...More

The taco's are great, there is a small place nearby where you can sit and eat. The fish taco's were better than the shrimp ones in my opinion

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
