    Torta Milanesa Cubano! Add some Red Sauce. Great for afterhours or after work grub. Safer parking. A/C is on full blast at 11:00 pm?? Tacos shrunk over the years. 2 armed security guards inside & out.

    The torta Milanesa with everything (onions, avocado, crema) plus cheese is everything to me, doused in their special red hot sauce, and washed down with a cold sugary pineapple drink. Open super late.

    The guards keep their guns "cocked & locked." Which means you'll get shot if you mess around. Buy a "rioja grande" & keep it to have with other tacos. Tacos are like BBQ ribs, its all in the sauce. ;)

    If you are in L.A. late at night go to el taurino. It may be in the ghetto but the food kicks ass. Parking is full but its worth the wait. If you can't find parking I.side park at food for less lot

    Tried all meat buritto with onions and nachos (meet+cheese) Buritto was perfect. Do not get cheese for nachos as it is not a real cheese. Very crowded and they just speak Spanish!!!

    This a good burrito, maybe the best of the burritos. Eat this burrito. Also, for those looking for a bit of that fabled "local flavor," you'll get it here.

    If you phone your order in, you'll be asked to go straight up to the window. Don't make eye contact with anyone in line unless you like getting the stink-eye. Ha!

    Best taco spot in Los Angeles. Service is very slow. You will be asked to pay extra for salsa. Do not come here on the Weekend. Mixture of Hispanic and koreans hardly any Caucasians. A lil pricey.

    BEST salsa in town,I'm not kidding.However they do have really bad service & they are so freaking stingy with their SALSA what's up with that.Go if you don't care for the service coz the food is GOOD!

    On sundays, get the Consome to compliment your tacos and tamales. It's a soup with garbanzo beans and is great with some red sauce mixed in

    get extra red sauce (you can get it on the side). you'll either love it, or it'll give you the shits. the risk in finding out is worth it.

    Torta with al pastor and the carne asada tostada are the items to beat. The barbacoa taco is pretty good too!

    Jonesing for a REAL Mex burrito downtown? This is ur spot. Carne asada, with the hot sauce, is why Los Angeles rules

    Salsa roja (red) is the only way to go. On weekends gotta come here b4 1:30 am or else you get stuck w/ the clubbing crowd

    Waited 30 minutes to get some carne asada tacos, but absolutely worth it; beware of drunk Koreans trying to speak poor Spanish though if you go late at night
