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
If you like spicy food, you have to try the burnt habanero and crema salsa! I had it for the first time yesterday and I am craving it again today! It's amazing!
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.
Great after-work spot with two floors and an outdoor patio. Cheap eats on “Malo Mondays” with $1-3 tacos and happy hour all night long. —Jen K.

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.
I love Malo but contrary to some older tips there is no 1$ taco Monday night anymore. Still a great spot with great food.
Go on a Monday night and order several potato chipotle tacos. They'll help your mouth stop burning from the habanero creme salsa.
Try the delicious Soy-Rizo tacos for only one dollar on Monday nights or veganize the Eggplant & Potato tacos. Yum!
Delicious chicken and cheese and soy-rizo hard tacos... $1 tacos on Monday, but it gets over-crowded very fast!
Avoid everything with "tomatoes" it's like having your food cooked in tomato juice. Safer bet is to stick to the tacos and drinks.
This place rocks! The Senorita Margarita is wonderful, My fave dish is the Carnita marinated in coca-cola & OJ. Yummm.
Wildly uneven. Appearing so busy with a restaurant 1/3 full. Slow yet a fluster and flurry of employees. Food is okay.
Excellent higher end Mexican food and delicious margaritas. I love the beef tacos with pickles.
Must order the Spicy Cucumber Margarita. It's not your typical girl drink. It has a nick kick to it.
This place is amazing!! Great service. Love the habanaro cream salsa. Shoulda tried the chewy chips
You're not really experiencing Malo unless you order the chewy chips + burnt habenero salsa. Seriously amazing.
One of the few restaurants where their water is actually good! Tastes like cucumbers!
Vegetarian fake beef and pickle tacos, or the delicious pumpkin flower tacos
Love this place! I want buckets of their Habanero Salsa in my kitchen at all times... best ever.
Ask for Jose on bar side. Really knows his tequilas and drink recommendation.
Try the muddled pineapple and cucumber margaritas. Delicious and not too sweet.
on Monday night and order 10 different tacos and a couple Margaritas and enjoy life!
The absolute BEST tacos I've ever had..The pickle inside just makes them amazing!
Beef and pickle tacos, obviously an homage to the hamburgers at the McDonalds next door.
Great happy hour. Great drinks. Love their floppy tortilla chips.
Monday $1 TACOSSSSSSS! Chicken and chipotle potato are my favorite.
Amazing tequila selection. Talk to the bartender about it! Sample...
Fried Bananas, garlic chips, & sour cream. Sounds horrible. Tastes amazing.
Monday night: Taco night!! you prob. spend more money on drinks than food, extra + the food is great!
Burnt habanero & cream salsa is da bomb! The carnitas in OJ & coke ain't too shabby either
Great Mexican food, though not cheap. $5 happy hour margaritas.
They have a vegetarian version of the beef and pickle tacos.
The chewy chips are actually gross. They're just undercooked, grease laden chips, what's the big deal people?
Good drinks BUT.........slow slow service, poor management and less than aspirational crowd.
From shrimp fajitas to carnitas tacos, Malo has an array of Authentic meals sure to be a crowd pleaser.
The spicy cucumber marg is delicious! -a new yorker
My al pastor tacos were quite good, but the slow service was a bummer.
Excellent Mexican/American fusion options for brunch.
The food is awful. This might as well be "Mexican" food in Iowa. Only have drinks. Let me repeat, ONLY have drinks.
happy hour tacos & margaritas - beef & pickle taco is cheesburger-y gringo perfection.
Chips & salsa used to be amazing but now the chips are from a bag. Not worth it.
