    customer service: 0/5. lady in front of soda machine told me to go back in line just for a refill on my water cup. don't order to go, there is significantly less meat. as if they don't care about you.

    Great inexpensive Mexican. Be advised that you can wait a while here. The line seems to be perpetually 30 minutes. Good food, though.

    very loud place, don't go there past 8pm, you'll wait in line forever. otherwise, the food is as expected : tasteful & makes you full

    Call in ahead and when you pay they'll push your order to the front. You're welcome.

    Tacos de asada. Hmmm nom nom but if you ask for red sala, it is really spicy..

    Alexander Rafailan · January 5, 2014
  • Robyn R.

    Just called to do a phone order, had a negative experience with that. What's the point of phone orders if you have to go over and wait in line anyways?

    My favorite spot in North America. Not joking. Deelish

    When the media mentions "LA tacos", King Taco falls under that saying. And the green sauce is the shit. Go for red for more fuego.

    Parking is a bitch on the weekends and line is always out the door. Otherwise, their burritos de asada are the best!

    Everyone mentions the Carne asada, and rightfully so...but what about the pollo (chicken)?!! Get it on a taco w/ plenty green sauce!

    The most awesome carne asada burritos, but get the salsa rojo only if you can handle good heat.

  • Javier C.

    This place is ten times better than taurino!! Even though thy are the same, king taco is not as stingy as taurino! What you get in one taco at king taco equals a burrito in taurino!! Enjoy!

    Javier Calzada · October 14, 2010
  • Ken M.

    When ordering the carne asada burrito, have them serve the red sauce on the side unless you can stand a lot of heat.
