    One of my favourite late night spots in Hollywood. The tacos and burritos are often epic and the late night crowd is often hilarious

    During the daytime, their salsas, etc. are kept inside per the health code. Just ask for what you want.

    If you're ready for no-fuss, down home Mexican –Cactus is the perfect taqueria. Cactus arguably has the best tacos in LA. If you're up for something more exotic, try the lengua (cow tongue). —Yasmine

    Cactus is great, but this is better... Between 8-10 pm, grab a tamale from the woman selling them at the entrance of the convenience store behind Cactus. Amazing!

    It doesn't have curb appeal, but pour that green salsa on carnitas tacos and you'll be good to go. Oh, and they sell the oft-forgotten 1980's soda Cactus Cooler.

    The shrimp burritos and tacos are amazing. Add cheese if you're into rocking cheese. The taste of the hot sauces vary day by day but they're always kicking it, Just hard to name a favorite. eat em up.

    The burritos are the best I've had in LA, but the hard shell tacos are the hidden gem. They seal shut when fried, and they cover them in all the goodies!
