Tacos 1986

Perfect For:Late Night Eats

Starting out as a Hollywood street cart in late 2018, this Tijuana-style taqueria has exploded in popularity with four brick-and-mortars (Downtown, Burbank, Beverly Grove, and Westwood), plus a robust catering service (pre-Covid). While you can’t go wrong with any taco on the menu (the mushroom and adobada are standouts), our favorite is the one not actually listed on the menu - El Perrón. This secret taco uses the same flour tortilla as the other tacos, but with crispy cheese griddled into the side and comes filled with mesquite-smoked carne asada, beans, guacamole, cilantro, onions, and red salsa. It’s a well-balanced and ridiculously flavorful taco and one that fully lives up to the internet hype.

Leo's Tacos Truck

Tacos Leo might be a taco truck in a gas station parking lot, but you aren’t going to find a better al pastor taco than right here.
