You’re driving back to LA aggressively hungover, and you need some life-saving food. Pull over at the Cabazon outlets and make your way to Crazy Coyotes, a tiny order-at-the-window taco shack. $6.50 might seem like a lot for a taco, but when they say “giant taco,” they really mean it. Our order is always one steak and one chicken, each doused in their spicy ghost salsa. Their burritos are excellent too. Life saved.
