La Chancla Mexican Grill

La Chancla is a Long Beach taqueria dedicated to rich, slow-cooked tacos de guisado. Located in a tiny strip mall, this Mexican restaurant serves a wide variety of stewed meats and veggies behind a glass counter. From birria and tinga de pollo to chile verde and pollo con mole, you’ll catch aromas of meat and simmering sauces as you enter La Chancla’s colorful dining room. All of their house-made corn tortillas are firm, but pliable blankets that catch all the juicy parts of the taco fillings. Drop by for the Tuesday special, which comes with three tacos de guisado and a large agua fresca for $10.
