Tacos 1986 is a tiny taco stand at the corner of Western Ave. and 6th St. in Koreatown. These are Tijuana-style tacos, which means the meat is grilled over mesquite and then topped with creamy guacamole and beans. The result is messy, heavy-handed tacos that certainly hit the spot after a long night of bar-hopping in the neighborhood, but aren’t something you need to drive specifically to K-town to eat. Prepare for lines almost every night of the week.
