This corner spot on Grove and Grand is almost always the answer to “What’s next?” on a given Thursday night after 9pm. Space is tight, but you’ll make friends fast after bumping into the person next to you as you head inside. If you can, squeeze into a spot at the high tops where you’ll be eye-level to the walls lined with vintage photos and more recently-taken shots of the LA Dodgers.

The menu is as straightforward as their plating: you can mix and match four tacos for under $15, which you’ll either receive on a paper plate or in a plastic basket lined with wax paper. The carnitas, bistec, chorizo, and barbacoa are a winning combo, but you could certainly swap out two of those for the nopalitos or lengua.
