For cheap eats, Tito's Tacos is always good, but I hate the jacked up parking and long lines.

I totally agree! I hate "Americanized" mexican food. Taco shops are the best. Especially Kotija's Taco shop in So Cal. It's the best!

As far as Mexican Fast food CHIPOTLE is the best!

Why go anywhere else but Taco Bell?


as much as i ate it as a teen, Taco Bell is not Mexican food.

Family owned places are by far the best. Reminds me of moms cookin'.

I've already mentioned my best Mexican Food (Taco Mesa in Costa Mesa). I never told my story of the worst.

I was in Buffalo New York about 20 years ago, at a diner (not a Mexican restaurant -- I don't think they had Mexican restaurants there 20 years ago), and one of the specials was "Mexican Fajitas."

It didn't occur to me that I was about 2,000 miles away from Mexico and nobody in this diner's kitchen would likely have a clue what they were doing, so I ordered them. They gave me a 12" tortilla, filled with lettuce and refried beans, folded in half, with ketchup on top.

Before Mexican food chains began to appear on the East Coast, there were restaurants that served tacos with salad dressing. The national chains at least "standardized" bland salsa.

Acapulco Cafe , Torrance. Carson St & Denker. Family owned and operated for like 50 years. The special chips with their homemade guacamole is unbelievable! Small, but very clean and great service. I now live in Vegas and I CRAVE it sooo bad.

Alertos! It is a classic and a must have if you reside in CA.

Family owned ones have the best overall food though imo.

Taco Bell.

Kidding. Well, not really. Good for value and cheap bastards like myself.

Here, some place call "Ernesto's." Though I haven't been there.

Also, I think there's a thread on this already.



Love Taco Mesa. Anytime I'm down in Newport I swing through there.
