Don't let the liquor store parking lot location fool you. This is great food! Had the carnitas burrito and loved it. There is limited outdoor seating and they do not serve soda, if that is important to you. Prices are cheap. Two burritos and two drinks for under $14.

This is a family run taco stand (literally). Everything is made from scratch and delicious. Locals have been coming here for years. Most of their business is "to go." But for the persistent, there are a couple of tables and chairs in the parking lot shared with a liquor store.
When I lived in the neighborhood, I came here several times a week for lunch and never had a bad experience.

I LOVE the carna cochinitas. I think I spelled that correctly...or not. The tacos are awesome. I have a hard time straying from my cochinitas. The burrito is not your typical huge californian burrito huge and filled with rice. Its got the meat of your choice and pinto beans, which is great , but i still LOVE the tacos. Ask for the pickled jalapeno and carrots. I don't need salsa or hot sauce. Tacos are about $2.50 and burritos are about $4.25. I say they aren't as cheap as other tacos because I've been eating $1.25 tacos around L.A and they are quite tasty, but I can't remember any of their names. So there you have it. You pay and extra buck to remember the name, and that they got a James Beard Award.

Thr chile verde burrito is my favorite. We have been coming here for 20 years. It is a simple stand with outdoor seating. And the food has never disappointed me.
