Nothing says Los Angeles like a taco truck. Taco Zone, El Chato, El Matador, El Taquito Mexicano, El TakiTaco and Tacos El Gallito are some of the best.

El TakiTaco
At the corner of Figueroa Street and Avenue 51, Highland Park. Located in front of Food 4 Less. Tacos 75 cents.
Simple, juicy little tacos that can be devoured in two bites while standing in front of the truck.

 

 

La Estrella
At the corner of Highland View Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, Los Angeles. Located in the Valero gas station parking lot. Tacos $1.25.
This mini chain has several blue-and-white trucks throughout Highland Park, Pasadena and Eagle Rock, but this is the rare truck that’s open during the day, making it a popular stop for students at President Obama’s alma mater, Occidental College.

La Golondrina
4910 Huntington Drive South, Los Angeles. Located in front of Food 4 Less. Tacos $1.
The El Sereno neighborhood, just west of Alhambra, is serious taco country. And this is a serious taco truck, marked by the fact that it also serves enchiladas horchatas.

Tacos Jeesy’s
At the corner of Cesar E Chavez Boulevard and South Carmelita Avenue, East Los Angeles. Tacos $1.
East Los Angeles’ Boyle Heights is home to some of the best Mexican restaurants, including La Parilla and Manuel’s El Tepeyac Café, so it’s no surprise one of the best taco trucks also resides here. Look for the truck bearing the colorful Legend of the Volcanoes mural.

Border Grill
No permanent location, but visit bordergrill.com.
A decidedly more upscale truck (and trendy in that its location needs to be tracked on Twitter), Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger deserve props for their take on modern Mexican cuisine. Taco fillings include Yucatan pork, cilantro chicken and potato rajas. Pricier at $3 each, but that’s the price for a “Top Chef Masters” celeb restaurateur.

La Oaxaqueña
Lincoln Boulevard between Rose Street and Flower Street, Venice. Located in front of Whole Foods. Tacos $1.50.
Eight blocks from the Venice boardwalk, this truck serves tacos topped with guacamole along with specialties of Mexico’s Oaxaca region, such as memelas, mulitas and clayudas.
