The Best Tacos in LA

Casa La Doña

The first stop on our taco list is a metro ride away over in Downtown LA. Casa La Dona is known for its fresh, pliable, handmade tortillas. Locals brag about how soft and tender the carnitas are. Their tacos Al Pastor are moist and rich and always of high quality. They have dollar tacos on Tuesdays so expect it to be crowded on Taco Tuesday. Salsa lovers buckle down because they have 18 types of salsa, ranging from mild to spicy. We encourage you to try them all.

Gish Bac

Another LA staple is Gish Bac, owned by Maria Ramos, a third-generation Oaxacan barbacoa master. The enchiladas and pit-roasted lamb are pure perfection. Another must-try is their mole negro. Their chicken is perfect and the mole contains the precise amount of sweetness.

Tacos Y Birria La Unica

Located just a couple of minutes away from Gish Bac is this jewel of a taco truck. Many locals living in LA love this spot for their food. Others love it because John Legend has vouched for them. People rave about the goat birria in a quesataco (tacos melted with cheese on the shell) as well as their regular tacos dorados. Watch out for their house salsas! They are crafted for a specific protein type, so be sure to get the owners’ rundown. Cash only.

Tacos El Tamix

Finally, Tacos El Tamix. The guys inside this truck are working hard to serve up meaty, juicy slices of Al Pastor straight off the pit. There are no thin bits, just hefty chunks of deep red pork with pineapple that never overpowers the plate. Onions, salsa, and cilantro are subtle additions but aren’t necessary because of the meats satisfying crunch.
