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

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

    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?

    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!

    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!

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