    go for monday taco night and get $1 potato & cheddar tacos, chicken soft tacos and more. don't forget the side of burnt habenero & creme salsa (it'll make you sweat but it's worth it)

    Love this place on Mondays for dollar tacos! If you like spicy, check out the habanero salsa. Second place is tomatillo with an avocado twist and the taco salad is decent!

    Alissa Walker: It serves cocktails that mix mezcal and bourbon TOGETHER. It is a bar where you can order tacos filled with beef, pickles and cheddar cheese. It's open all day.

    This place is true to its name. Bad! The cook is trying too hard. Rice tasted like they dumped the the entire jar of cumin into the mix. Pomegranates have no business in guacamole. Skip this place!

    In a place where it's hard for a taco to stand out, Malo's beef and pickle tacos stand up to the challenge. Try one or twelve tacos at one dollar taco night! - IFC Staff

    The beef and pickle taco was surprisingly bland. Be more bold- Use fattier beef and stronger pickles!!! The chicken carnitas, on the other hand, were surprisingly good.

    Monday is no longer taco night. A revised menu leaves you hungry for more, leaving less in your wallet. Avoid. There are plenty of better taqueria's in LA for half the price.

    Avoid everything with "tomatoes" it's like having your food cooked in tomato juice. Safer bet is to stick to the tacos and drinks.
