    I actually don't care for the chipotle special sauce they put on the shrimp & lobster tacos, but they did have a good amount of seafood on them. I loved the street tacos & sorrel lemonade though!

    A different kind of fusion altogether, Sky’s Gourmet Tacos in Mid-City marries soul food with corn tortillas and Tex-Mex staples like shredded yellow cheese. The results are messy and delicious. Read more

    OMG. I went here for the first time today and was amazed with the variety of tacos they had. Played it safe and went for steak...made a great choice. Very good worth the drive from LbC

    Nachos include a pungent burgundy-hued Sassy Sauce, black beans (or pinto) & generous dollops of guacamole and sour cream. If you’re a true nacho baller, choose to pile on sweet chunks of lobster.

    Got 2 potato tacos to go. Waited roughly 30 mins for tacos. Worth it. Delicious, fresh but messy as hell - don't attempt to eat in the car. Sit at a table somewhere, you heathens!

    This Mid-City joint melds Cajun and Mexican flavors together. They have a bevy of meats to choose from for the filling—from chicken to steak and shrimp. ProTip: Add guacomole. Read more

    CA (Eat) Mexican Soul Food?! Don't question it - just shove it in your face. You won't regret it. Sip on the sorrel lemonade and don't miss the crawfish tacos!

    The best shrimp tacos and lemonade on the Westside. I've never been disappointed by any of the food here! Look out for their new food truck, usually on Crenshaw near Big 5.

    I have high expectations in the taco truck arena. These are not authentic mexican tacos al carbon, HOWEVER, they are executed well. A mexican-american feast!

    Nachos are a must, but are only shareable (until they make a 'Paul's nachos')

    The sassy salsa is sweet. The green salsa is vinegary and there is secret spicy red. They're all good.
