    Writing of Los Angelenos in 1835 Richard Henry Dana said, “The men are thriftless, proud, extravagant and very much given to gaming; and the women have but little education and a good deal of beauty…”

    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)

  • Shyree M.

    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!

  • Jessica R.

    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.

  • Vertigo D.

    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!

    Celi · March 18, 2011
  • Yun D.

    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.

  • Phoenix satya

    I love Malo but contrary to some older tips there is no 1$ taco Monday night anymore. Still a great spot with great food.

    Phoenix satya · January 15, 2013
  • Caitlin H.

    Go on a Monday night and order several potato chipotle tacos. They'll help your mouth stop burning from the habanero creme salsa.

    Caitlin Haskins · November 6, 2009
  • PETA

    Try the delicious Soy-Rizo tacos for only one dollar on Monday nights or veganize the Eggplant & Potato tacos. Yum!

    PETA · January 4, 2011
  • Fawna A.

    Delicious chicken and cheese and soy-rizo hard tacos... $1 tacos on Monday, but it gets over-crowded very fast!

    Fawna Asfaw · May 14, 2010

    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.

    Gustavo Muñoz · October 18, 2012
  • Buzz A.

    Excellent higher end Mexican food and delicious margaritas. I love the beef tacos with pickles.

    Buzz Andersen · March 28, 2012

    Must order the Spicy Cucumber Margarita. It's not your typical girl drink. It has a nick kick to it.

    Rubi Rodriguez · September 11, 2011

    This place is amazing!! Great service. Love the habanaro cream salsa. Shoulda tried the chewy chips

    Colette · August 23, 2010
  • Tyler S.

    You're not really experiencing Malo unless you order the chewy chips + burnt habenero salsa. Seriously amazing.

    Tyler Starrine · March 28, 2010
  • Kristine B.

    One of the few restaurants where their water is actually good! Tastes like cucumbers!

    Kristine Barboza · June 10, 2013

    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.

    Juan Morales · May 18, 2012
  • Melissa S.

    Try the muddled pineapple and cucumber margaritas. Delicious and not too sweet.

    Melissa Silverman · February 28, 2012

    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.

    Melinda Jackson · August 24, 2014

    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.

    David Linder · January 18, 2015
  • Zach B.

    They have a vegetarian version of the beef and pickle tacos.

    Zach Behrens · January 8, 2012
  • Iknow T.

    The chewy chips are actually gross. They're just undercooked, grease laden chips, what's the big deal people?

  • Jefferson C.

    Good drinks BUT.........slow slow service, poor management and less than aspirational crowd.

    Jefferson Coombs · October 31, 2010
  • DrinkCoba

    From shrimp fajitas to carnitas tacos, Malo has an array of Authentic meals sure to be a crowd pleaser.

    My al pastor tacos were quite good, but the slow service was a bummer.

    Sean Robison · June 1, 2015
  • Zachary T.

    The food is awful. This might as well be "Mexican" food in Iowa. Only have drinks. Let me repeat, ONLY have drinks.

    Zachary Tindall · August 11, 2013
  • Bryan C.

    happy hour tacos & margaritas - beef & pickle taco is cheesburger-y gringo perfection.

    Bryan Cowe · April 3, 2009
  • Gillian

    Chips & salsa used to be amazing but now the chips are from a bag. Not worth it.
